Glorious Lamps International
The Lamps was established in 1990 during the heat of the civil war in Liberia, West Africa. They were bonded in the Lord as a result of being incarcerated for refusing to partake in the civil uprising. About two- hundred plus people were killed at the prison during their stay. One morning while singing a chorus, the prison guard of the rebel faction heard them sing and was moved by the grace of God and he set them free from prison; he then put them on a truck headed for the Ivory Coast and from the Ivory Coast, they migrated to the Liberian Refugee Camp in Accra, Ghana, where they remain serving the Lord with their voices until the love of God brought them to the United States of America. Since their arrival in the US, they have never ceased to labor for the Lord.They remain hopeful always because it is their belief God has a plan for them.
