Merry Christmas in advance! The month of adding value to all of us lives, Jesus is the REASON for the SEASON.
I am still in Liberia working to get our containers of educational, medical and other humanitarian supplies from the seaport of Monrovia, Liberia. A week and the half ago, I took few days out of my busy schedule to visit Triple “A” School in Gbarnga, Bong County in Central Liberia. The school encompasses from kindergarten through grade 12 and currently has 562 students. We thank you for your prayers, love and supports of this worthy cause to the glory of God!
We made some progress a week ago when the senior officer for the government at the office of the Liberian Revenue Authority indicated that we didn’t have to pay any more money in taxes on the last container.
We experienced a whole week setback in our efforts because of the visit of the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada to Liberia. The highway from the Roberts’ International Airport to the Liberian Capital of Monrovia was completed closed because of the arrival of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Also Tuesday November 29, 2016 was a holiday marking the birth celebration of Liberian Late. President Williams V. S. Tubman. These events shutdown the entire country for almost a week of no work in public buildings.
This first week of December 2016, I am hoping and praying for the government to let go of their taxes on this container. Unfortunately, there are storage fees that are non-negotiable. We are looking to raise $7,000 dollars to cover storage cost, broker fees, port handling and charges as well as ground transportation in country. We are asking for your donations during the season of giving, to help us reach our short term financial goal quickly, as each day that passes adds another $52 dollars in fees.
As an incentive, each donation of $75 or more at http://www.canintl.org/donate/ you
will received a signed copy of Eric’s new book, Return Of A Refugee. Your generous donation will help us resolve this problem urgently and enable us to continue to provide quality, much needed education to the underserved and forgotten children of Liberia.
Please, I can’t do this work alone, I really need your help right now, thanks for your continual love and supports of education in Liberia. God bless you richly! Kindly tag and share with all of your friends, family members and love-ones. Together, we CAN and we WILL change the world…!
