Back to Barclayville

Last August-- maybe it was September-- the family drove forty miles into the interior (two hour drive) to attend the opening of a church, affiliated with our local community church and part of the new "Christian Reformed Church in Liberia." Last Tuesday, I drove out there again to visit with church leaders and answer their call to do some teaching on reformed doctrine like I and Renita's father did for the local branch. I had a great time, and afterword enjoyed dumboy with bene seed soup and boneys, as well as palm butter and boneys over rice. Yum!

This was how the Barclayville "CRC" church looked in August when we first visited. A brand new place of worship for the community.

And how it looks today. A mud structure with hard mud floors. Love the paint job!

Another view-- the palm leaf structure in August...

And today. I love this building.
