Immigration Issues (Next Steps)

In the last edition of this publication, we requested your prayers for the immigration bill that was being considered. With the pass of the Bill and the endorsement by the President, we are grateful for your prayers and efforts. We are most thankful to God for answering the prayers of His people.

Most of you have been asking about next steps and so the following is our initial response to your inquiry:

1--Since it is reported that there a approximately 4000 Liberians that would quality under the bill passed and many don't know the implications for their particular situation, we advise that you consult your immigration attorney to know how it applies to your situation. This will help you understand the next steps forward for your specific case.

2--As an immigrant community, LECUSA would want to set aside a time to celebrate this great breakthrough and victory for Liberians in thanksgiving to God. The time and manner of this thanksgiving and celebration will be determined later and announced to all of you. So please stay turned.

Once again, to God Be The Glory!

Prayers for Our Motherland

Following the recent news in our motherland of Liberia, there has been much anxiety and fear over the political situation there. Our Church community there has been truly on edge about the situation. As you are aware, there was a mass demonstration planned for December 30, that spurred fear of possible violence and instability. It was cut off following much negotiations but the cloud of anxiety still looms over the country.
We ask that you please continue to prayer with our church folks in the Diocese and all others during this tensed time for our homeland. In this era of national recovery and rebuilding, Liberia is still very fragile. Whatever affects the state will again affect the church.
Your prayers are requested and appreciated.

The Rev. Canon Wilmot T. Merchant

Our own Canon Merchant has been appointed as the interim administrative head of his diocese pending the election of the next bishop. The position of the bishop was made vacant by the end of the term of their provisional bishop. Plans are underway for the election of the next bishop but until then, Canon Merchant is running the affairs of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina in concert with an administrative team. This is, so far, the highest clerical position to be held by one of our Liberian born clergy here in the US.
We congratulate him and ask your prayers for him and the Diocese of South Carolina.
