Love for Liberia: The war in Liberia exacted a heavy toll on all it’s people, but most especially on it’s children. And though seven years has passed since the end of the most horrific violence, children still continue to experience the devestating affects of such recent history.
During the war, thousands of children were forced to fight. Some as young as ten were given weapons and fed drugs. Then in a stupor of addiction, they killed anything and everything. It was a mindless and almost endless killing. The violence consumed everything, especially the children themselves. It murdered and it taught murder. It lasted for years, but even nightmarish malice cannot last forever. Horror reigned and flesh might be killed, but never love.
So on this day Frido N. Kinkolenge, GBGM Missionary supported by the NC Conference, lives out the story of resurrection love. Working with Ex-combatant children, Frido proclaims a new promise for them…that because they are loved by the One who death could not kill, they can love too. Frido laughs with them and cries with them. He teaches these brutalized children to embrace their sorrow and give thanks for their joy.
In his smile, Jesus smiles on these who would otherwise be forgotten. But they aren’t forgotten; in the embrace of the NC Conference and Frido Kinkolenge, the children can once again smile.
