0300hrs Still no transport, nerves are building.

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!
