Martha Quoi—known on the mission as “Grandma”—has been a cook for Liberia Mission since 2005. She is Mano by tribe and from Nimba County, Liberia. The students affectionately call her Grandma because of her kindness, generosity, and good cooking! Here is what she shared in an interview about her time at Liberia Mission:
How has Liberia Mission impacted your life?
As I always say, Liberia Mission is helping me. If I am sad and having difficulties in my own life, Liberia Mission helps me to resolve my problems with its support. Even when I am happy, Liberia Mission is still willing to help. I also am deeply impacted and touched by the help they are giving to our Liberian youth.
What is your favorite part about being in the Liberia Mission community?
As an employee, I really appreciate having a ward I can send to school. Liberia Mission allows me to send one of my children, or a child in my extended family, to St. Anthony School—free of charge. I am grateful for this because Liberia Mission not only helps me, but also my family.
Why do you think Liberia Mission is special?
I don’t have much experience with other missions in this country, but I do know that Liberia Mission is doing an exceptional job. The children are eating three healthy meals a day—almost unheard of in this country. We also have a nurse on the mission. When the children get sick, they receive treatment immediately, not common in Liberia.
What would you like to share with our supporters?
I just want to say thank you very much. Anything that is done on the mission is because of your effort and your donations. You are doing an extremely good job for our people!
What is a favorite memory you have at Liberia Mission?
I don’t have a specific memory in mind, but I always love the times when we have special events. When that type of day comes around, the mission does a really good job to make sure we have a good time. We get to eat good food, listen to music, and relax. I really love those big days!
We would not be here without you! We say prayers of gratitude for God’s faithfulness and your generous support that make stories like these possible. To continue supporting our work, please give to our 15 Kids for 15 Years campaign Go Fund Me campaign. Thank you for making Liberia Mission the safe, loving community it is today.
