“Listen to our cry”


Comment on Liberians want to stay in Minnesota

My name is Moses Woloquelli, I came to the U.S during the heat of the bloody civil war that occur in Liberia. My Mother and my father were cut into pieces along with my little brother by armed men. Moreover, the rest of my relatives were buried alive. Our residence was burned down into dust like many Liberians who are now residing in the U.S. I do not have any where to stay in Liberia. America is all I know as my home. Going back to Liberia will be like leaving Heaven and going to hell. We have worked and paid taxes all round years. Africa is never guarantee for safety. We are trusting the Lord Jesus Christ that the American Government will listen to our cry and grant us permanent Residence. America, America please do something about our situation.
