Kid Magnets in Liberia

We’re proud to be members of the Liberian Kid Magnet Club at the Ricks Institute.
The four of us, DeDe, Colleen, Gordy and me, are bonafide “kid magnets” at Ricks School.

Colleen is shown with two students, Patience and Steven. Their father Maurice is a long time French teacher at Ricks. Maurice, a native of nearby Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast).

We’ve really enjoyed building relationships with the teachers.

Quote of the day from one of our new friends who laughingly told us, “Liberians cry when it rains, and then complain with the sun shines.” We quickly told him that is prevalent among Americans too.”

I’ll say this: They’ve had a lot more crying than usual. It is rainy.

God is good and is teaching us so much.
Tomorrow we journey into “town.” (Monrovia) for supplies and an orphanage visit.
