Former Montserrado County senatorial candidate, Nathaniel Blama, has underscored that if Liberia is to progress and move forward, the country needs to return to its foundation.
He said Liberians should learn to support one another in all they do or progress would continue to elude the nation. Delivering the keynote address Sunday at the installation and fund-raising program of the Dorcas Women Initiatives, INC. in Monrovia, Mr. Blama said Liberians have adapted a system of taking God out of the process when it comes to performing Christianity.
He emphasized that Liberians should know God throughout the week and not only on Sunday, and reminded Liberia was established on Christian principles so the only way to move the country forward is by returning to its foundation.
He challenged women of the organization to follow the footsteps of the woman Dorcas in the Holy Bible and not to only bear her name because they want people to help them.
According to him, the forefathers of the nation spent most of their times fighting among themselves so he urged members of the organization to wake up and work.
The Dorcas Women Initiative, INC. is a humanitarian organization that helps less fortunate members of society and provides awareness against teenage pregnancy.
For her part, the president and founder of the organization, Rev. Sarah D. Coumbili, said women of Liberia have been silent for too long, but now they are ready to work for the advancement of the country.
