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 were leaving for Ghana. During…

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 overwhelm the meaning of being…

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 a precious reminder that kids…

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…

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. …

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…
