Gbehlay Development Association

1.   Now thank we all our God,

     with heart and hands and voices,

     who wondrous things has done,

     in whom this world rejoices;

     who from our mothers' arms

     has blessed us on our way

     with countless gifts of love,

     and still is ours today.

2.   O may this bounteous God

     through all our life be near us,

     with ever joyful hearts

     and blessed peace to cheer us;

     and keep us still in grace,

     and guide us when perplexed;

     and free us from all ills,

     in this world and the next.

Helen Says, THANK YOU

3.   All praise and thanks to God

     the Father now be given;

     the Son, and him who reigns

     with them in highest heaven;

     the one eternal God,

     whom earth and heaven adore;

     for thus it was, is now,

     and shall be evermore.

Biography of the President

 To all Officers and Members: 
 Gbeh Development Association:

I write to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to each and every one of you for the love and support that you have demonstrated.  You demonstrated that you do not only love me, you showed that you also love the people of Gbehlay County District, Nimba County, and your dear country, The Republic of Liberia.

Your activities and the seriousness of purpose  with which you conducted the business session and the fundraiser, you convinced me that we are ready to work together to show the world what it means to be a member of GDA. This was exemplified by your presence at the past convention. Indeed, I am very proud of all of you. I am therefore appealing to you that what we have started must continue so that the benefits can be felt by those who this particular endeavor is intended to benefit.

Helen T. Saylee
President of GDA
