Brother Andrew Bondo walked into my life during a meeting at a church my family and I were attending at the time here in Canon City, Colorado. He was the pastor of a "sister" church in Liberia, Africa. He stood next to a bulletin board that had pictures on it and shared about the civil war his country had been through. Andrew begged for donations to be sent to his church and family... these were donations like towels, blankets, sheets, clothes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc., etc.Oh yeah; and a chain saw! :) Things we may be "throwing away" would be a treasure to them while they recover from the devastation of war. I was amazed at the booming voice this African man had (as he was not very tall!) He and I talked for quite a while after church and we exchanged email addresses. I committed to him that I would pray for his family and church, and would gather as much as we could to send back to Liberia. Periodically through out the next year or so, we would email one another, and any time God brought Andrew's family to mind; I would pray for them!
