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 out” which means we are about to embark on another journey into the bush to speak in schools and villages.  It really is another day in Paradise. Each place we speak we are able to share personal copies of the Bible with those who want them.  It is a blessing...

Adapt and Overcome 

This week started with a wake-up alarm at 0455.  Not early for some, but the middle of the night for me!  This early morning beginning was due to the fact that we were scheduled to speak in a series of senior High Schools which are the only places in Ghana that adhere to any sort of genuine schedule. I was scheduled to speak in an English/Arabic High School which was both exciting and challenging.  The students (and staff) were very well behaved and listened carefully to the message about Jesus Christ being the only way to an eternity with God.  Many Muslim students...

The Three R’s

Sundays are always special in Ghana.  After a full week of intense field ministries here our teams are grateful for Sunday.  We can sleep a little later, eat a little slower, and simply enjoy of time together.  We Americans gather for a time of fellowship, devotion, prayer, (and even singing sometimes) while our Ghanaian counterparts travel back to their home churches to participate in local church ministries.  Such is a day in the life in Ghana.  As I sit here and think on the past week, I am reminded that today is a day to …   Reflect on what God has been doing all along. One...

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. Yes, another day had come.  Only God knows what this day will hold. Saturday always proves to be a special day for our entire team in Africa.  A few years back a dear friend and mentor of mine taught me the importance of always making your team feel loved and...

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 difficult travel and by the time we arrived for the first program not only was our vehicle straining, but so were all the occupants – including me! The sight of the first school also revealed the most difficult challenge to date for me.  The building was perched high atop a...

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!  None of us feel old and none of us what to quit. We have completed our Monday morning school ministries here in Ghana and we are all feeling humbled but stoked! Thus far through 3 days of ministry we have shared the Gospel in 25 separate ministry venues to an audience...
