A boy poses in front of mortar holes in the wall of the church.
The caretaker and his children stand in front of the shot up, broken church building.
The roads in Ganta were filled with shell casings. It was quite sad.
While walking in Ganta we passed a beautiful old church that was destroyed in the war. The walls were filled with bullet holes and entire roof was gone. Wanting to take a picture of the building our group stooped and walked towards the church. A Liberian man met us in front of the building. He was the church's caretaker.
Apparently it was a Catholic church and services were held throughout the war. It was destroyed in 2003 during "the third world war". A new church is currently being built at a different site.
