A Testimony to Every Day Faithfulnes-2
Setting the Stage
Matthew Brima grew up in Sierra Leone during the eleven year civil war. Unrest and violence ravaged the country from 1991 to 2002.
He was raised Catholic and loved being a part of the Catholic Church. His goal was to be a Roman Catholic priest. However, the war was hard for him to reconcile.
His mother was a police officer and he says that whenever he visited the station, there would be dead bodies all over from the conflict. He became angry with God and confesses that he did not have a relationship with God at that time. However, he was still going to Church every day.
