Weather: Harmattan winds have passed and we are able to see the sky again, free from dust. Temperatures at mid-day are low 90s, humidity at around 80%, and the heat index is low 100s.
Off to Liberia: As you read this, I will be on my way to Liberia. On February 18-19, LEAD will be hosting their fourth conference, "Africa's Marketplace Revolution. We expect to have over fifty international guests coming for this, from eight different countries. Lord willing, the President of Liberia, as well as the Auditor General, and the Executive Director of Partners Worldwide will all be plenary speakers. We hope and pray that this will be a meaningful time of networking, learning, and reclaiming the redeemed Marketplace for God.
