Leaving Boston For Good: Send Off For Rev. Mahn C. Krua Sr.
January 3 - January 11Free
It took the United States 30 years and President Trump’s signature to grant work permits to Liberian Refugees. But with all the legal documents to reside in America, one Liberian, Rev. Mahn C. Krua, 95, has chosen, voluntarily, to leave America for good. He is returning to his village to help rebuild a school he founded 60 years ago. Krua is asking others to follow his lead. “I returned to Liberia and rebuilt my home burned down when rebels led by Bentley College Grad, Charles Taylor and Harvard University Grad Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
Now I am returning to rebuild the school I founded before I retire.” Said the 95 year old man.

A “Send Off” for Rev. Krua that took place on Friday, January 3, 2020, marks the beginning of two months of celebrations to thank God for the miracle of the Liberian Green Card Bill, signed into law by President Trump, will be held in Stoughton, Massachusetts by the Liberian Community. The two months celebrations, which will last through Black History Month, Feb. 29, 2020 will be observed in Boston and Monrovia, Liberia.
60 years ago, in a remote, rural Liberian Village, Ziah, Rev. Mahn C. Krua and 8 friends created a stage where the education journeys of thousands of children would begin. Without formal education or sufficient money for the school project in his village, Krua asked American missionaries to help build a school to educate the future leaders of Liberia. The missionaries declined, citing the eminent return of Jesus Christ to take Christians to Heaven, budgetary restrictions as their mission was to save souls and not educate and the remote location of the village. He asked the government. The government also declined, claiming lack of money. He asked his friends and together they built a four room house and dormitory for boys and girls. From the humble and remote beginning at a village education stage created without external help, many Liberian leaders including, Liberians Diplomat, Dahn V. Both of the Liberian Mission in Rome, Italy, Will MaColey, Nuclear Medicine Dept. Veteran Hospital West Roxbury, Massachusetts, Pastor Torli Krua of Universal Human Rights International (UHRI) began their journey.
