Homeward Bound 

Another ministry project is now a memory.  After meeting with our entire team this morning we left the field for Accra.  The drive was without incident and we have settled into our hotel in the Capital city for a night of rest before boarding our flight home early tomorrow morning.   It seems like only yesterday that we...

Why are we in Africa? 

In, “My Utmost for His Highest” Oswald Chambers wrote, “A missionary is one sent by Jesus Christ as He was sent by God … In missionary work the great danger is that God’s call will be replaced by the needs of the people to the point that human sympathy will absolutely...

Jesus Loves the Little Children 

Wednesday morning was a great day for us here. We shared the Gospel message with a total audience this morning of 4,297 students in 25 schools today alone!  It was a day filled with excitement. The schools ranged from 1st to 12th grades which meant children between the ages of 6 and 19.  It is always...

The Satisfaction of Sameness 

Another day in Ghana.  Up before daylight, coffee and devotional reading, then breakfast with our team.  Tuesday morning felt just like every other day here. Our Ghanaian team members arrive in our four vehicles, knock on our doors, ask us about our night, and then remark, “We are ready to set...

Sunrise on Saturday

The stillness of sleep was interrupted by the sound of crickets from my iPhone.  The familiar sound ushered in the new day as the dark sky began to yield to the morning glimpses of another day.  The air was pleasant.  The fog settled into the trees just below the ridge-line....

When A Pout turns to Praise

19 October 2017 –  Thursday morning taught me much about myself.  The ministry team I was with today was tasked with the assignment of traveling out to some pretty remote areas of this region.  Each turn on to a different road revealed more desperate times.  The muddy paths made for...

Rainy Days and Mondays…

The Carpenters sang, “Talking to myself and feeling old.  Sometimes I’d like to quit, nothing ever seems to fit, hanging around, nothing to do but frown, rainy days and Mondays always get me down.”  It seems obvious to us here that this duo must have never been to Ghana for a ministry project! ...

Wheels Up

This project has been through many struggles on the road to today. The six months since our return from Ghana have presented us with some obstacles and opportunities. At the conclusion of each project, as we sit in the departure lounge in the Accra airport, our team spends time reflecting...
