"Well, the excitement builds. We have crossed our minimum budget target to go and stay safe. (This means we can eat, and drink water that is safe - a real bonus for sure!!) The team is pumped and energized and well trained. I am so impressed with these young people. This time, we get to do some different things. We have some soccer enthusiasts with us and have had soccer uniforms and balls donated. We will help set up a soccer ministry in the village and encourage the young people of Kokrobite through sports. The construction project has changed a bit, but "this is Africa", and change is to be expected. However, as always, we go prepared to serve in whatever way they need us.
I can't wait to get back. Developing friendships with people over the 10 year span of our association with Ghana has been wonderful. There is nothing quite like being met at the airport by dozens of smiling, beautiful people who are patiently waiting to renew friendships and start new ones. And, there is nothing quite like the feeling that you get when you know that your very presence brings hope and peace.
More to come....
