Friday 11th June. Visited Masjid Ebrahim. Assessment made on how much work and funds are to be needed for completion of the project. Thereafter we read Jummah Salaat in a small mosque to make an assessment on its necessary rebuilding. We recorded how many Mussalis for Jummah and how many Muslims live in the area. Discussed the needs with locals. New land has been donated with the possibility bthat brother Arif (travel partner) will get his family to sponsor the project.
Thereafter we went to Sinje Town for assessment of land given for major Masjid project including a school and a Hifz Madressa. Its location is 3 hours from Monrovia (capital of Liberia). Size of land donated by locals is 150 ft x 650 ft.
