Vice President Assures Liberians of Improved Living Conditions

Tuesday, 27th March 2007
Monrovia, Liberia -  Liberia’s Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has assured Liberians that the Unity Party-led Government would go the extra mile to ensure that conditions of living in the country are improved.

“ God has begun to do new things in Liberia, but you have seen nothing yet. Come next year, you will be surprised to see what God has in store for you,” he said.

Vice President Boakai was speaking Sunday at a ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a school by the Free Pentecostal Mission Church in Chicken Soup Factory, Gardnersville.

The ground breaking ceremony coincided with the Silver Jubilee celebration of the Church.

Vice President Boakai urged Liberians to be patient as the Government endeavors to mend broken relations and grapple with other problems inherited by the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf-led government.

He lauded the Church for choosing to invest in education which, as a pre-condition for development, is nearest to the hearts of the leadership of this country. The Vice President made an initial contribution of USD$400 towards the school project.

Delivering the anniversary sermon, the Sanctuary Pastor of the Bethel Cathedral, Rev. Patrick P. Wleh, Sr., called on Liberians to thank God for manifesting his greatness to them.

He said Liberia has entered a period of progress and prosperity, emphasizing, “The best for you is yet to come”.

At the program, Rev. Joseph T.S Menjor, Senior Pastor of the Church who is also General  Overseer of the Free Pentecostal Global Mission Church, honored three members of the Church for their outstanding contributions to the church since its founding 25 years ago.

Those honored include Acting Assistant Pastor Fallah B. Gbondo and Sister Finda Potokenor.
