Amani Liberia Roofing Team Update #3

OUR AMANI MEN ARE ON THEIR WAY HOME!   12391113_10208245299634165_1027626370115125613_n.jpg

Sunday Dec 13 - Day of Departure  

0130hrs The team wakes up, bags packed ready to go to Robertsfield Airport, Monrovia.  

0200hrs  Transport is to arrive at the guesthouse to collect the team.  

0230hrs No transport in sight, anxiety levels begin to rise.  

0300hrs Still no transport, nerves are building.  

0330hrs The car arrives.  The driver is a stranger.  Their driver friend sent his protégé.   The car speeds off into the dark with the team and luggage for a one-hour trip to the airport -- pitch black roads with no life or light in sight.  

0430hrs The car with the team arrives at the airport but they are too late. They are refused entry.  The rules for international flights - passengers are to be at the airport 2 hours before departure.   Veteran missionary Pete Vaughn talks to the authorities but to no avail.   The next Air Moroc flight is Tuesday – in two days.

 ALWAYS EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED IN AFRICA…

Mon Dec 13  

1000hrs Team is issued new tickets.  

2000hrs Team arrives at the airport 8 hours early to camp out determined not to miss the flight again.  

Tues Dec 14  

0530hrs   Team departs on Air Moroc with big sighs of relief!    

On behalf of the entire Amani family we want to thank the Chattanooga roofing team for going and doing what we couldn’t do.  Your faith and perseverance and the sacrifices you and your families have made speaks volumes to all of us.   Your going has assured a future for Amani Liberia.   Though it looked like a far away dream to us God is always out in front, ahead of us, with a plan doing what seems to be the impossible because He is the future.   This small start for Amani is the catalyst for so much more!  

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11  
Merry Christmas everyone!!
