On my first trip to Liberia a few years ago, one of the leaders I met was Susanna. She had 6 children and watched her husband die in the brutal Liberian civil war. I watched her command of the children, she was a born leader and nurturer of those little ones. We talked about the degree she was working on and how important education was to the rebuilding process. Each year I went back to Liberia, Susanna was one of the familiar faces that would greet our team at the airport. Last year I was not able to go to Safe Home, but when the group returned from their trip they brought news that Susanna had cancer. Today, I received news that she had passed. My prayers are for her family, the extended family at Safe Home Children's Village and School, and the village of Flehla. I was reminded today that while there will be little written about Susanna Solo and while her death didn't make national news, her life mattered greatly to the Kingdom of God and to a precious children she influenced. While I had hope to see here this year in Liberia, I will see her in a better place where we can visit for as long as it takes. Say a pray tonight for Safe Home, and remember that every tribe and nation will one day come together in a place where these things don't happen. Be Blessed tonight!
I want to share thoughts, insights, and scriptures that lead us in the direction of Christ.
