Tom Smith and friend
That’s missionary Tom Smith holding up a 28-foot long snake skin. Tom and his wife Shirley served in Voinjama, far up-country from Monrovia. The porch he’s on, if I’m not mistaken, is at the combination publishing house and residence of the Norvilles, Southern Baptist mission station in Congo Town near Monrovia.
The view from that building is straight out over the beaches and to the Atlantic, reaching for miles and miles, so close you could hear the ocean roar. After my year enjoying the beaches in Liberia, I returned to the States and became a mountain person, because there can’t be a beach anywhere that’s more beautiful.
