Traversing the globe with an open mind and an open heart, Franci Neely says every place she’s visited has impacted her in some way. But she confides her November trip to Liberia was magically moving. Neely visited the historic Providence Baptist Church in Monrovia, the capital of the West African country, and met the administrative pastor of the church, the Rev. Charles Diggs.
Although the church is typically closed on Mondays, Franci Neely says Diggs opened the church for her and welcomed her inside.
