A month ago if you would have asked me where Liberia was on a map I wouldn't have been able to tell you. And I definitely wouldn't have been able to share anything about the country or what they've gone through in the last couple decades. In December I was asked by Locke Morgan of Restoration Ministries Worldwide and The Liberia Project to join a group on a trip to Liberia to help tell a story of the trip and the people of Liberia through my photos. I was excited and nervous all at the same time. The excitement to combine my love of photography with my love of the people of Africa was too great. After a lot of help from friends and family I had my visa and ticket to Liberia. I spent 3 weeks in Liberia meeting many amazing people and hearing many heart breaking stories of the civil war that occurred not too long ago. However, in all of those tough stories there was good that came out of each. Liberia is a country that is continuing to rebuild not only their roads and buildings after a horrific war but also their relationships. I'm hopeful for Liberia's future and I pray that my photos used by RMW and the Liberia Project can help their people!
