Seeing the Light in Liberia
The man with the red-tipped cane walked up to the counselor hesitantly. With a crack in his voice, he said he wanted to pray with someone. “I lead a ministry for the disabled, but I have fallen by the wayside,” he said. Although legally blind, he could see enough to point to where a shy young lady stood with her head hanging down. “Please, someone needs to pray with her too. She is my fiancé.”

Setting Hearts Free in Liberia
When 22-year-old Ibrihim heard Franklin Graham speak about the depravity and subsequent repentance of Manasseh from the book of 2 Kings 21 Friday night at the All Liberia Life Festival, he fell to his knees. There was much of the king’s story that resonated in his heart. “My mother and my father were both killed during the war here,” he said with tears wetting his cheeks. “I was alone and on the streets, so I turned to sorcery like Manasseh. And I tried to kill someone,” he added quietly.

A Love That Spans Generations
In the spring of 2007, the Lord laid it on Cissie Graham Lynch’s heart to work with one of the Samaritan’s Purse projects during the upcoming summer season. “I just knew that Liberia was a very clear calling,” she said during a recent phone interview.

Liberia: Cultivating Hope for the Next Generation

This month, the churches of Liberia have invited Franklin Graham to bring a message of hope to this West African nation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  1. Russell says:

    I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr. Franklin Graham and his team for the huge investment and ministry impact in Liberia. I was greatly moved to see and hear the thousands of young people eagerly receiving Christ.

  2. Rik says:

    I was the U.S. Marine Battalion Commander for BLT 2/4, 22d MEU in 1990. We were there approximately 3 months evacuating non combatants, guarding the US Embassy and providing humanitarian aid, esp at the Greystone Compound across from the embassy. We saw a lot of heartache and destruction as a result of the civil war. It is heart warming to read and see the recovery and evangelism that is taking place in Liberia and its people.

  3. Robert says:
