Saying Goodbye!

Filed under: News Updates @ 5:59 pm and

Until we meet again

Today has been a very emotional and stress filled day for me. I have lived in Krachi for a month and have met some wonderful people and now I have to say goodbye. I don’t know if I will be back so with that knowledge comes sadness, but I also know that someday when Christ comes again, we will meet again.

The laughs we shared, the misunderstandings between culture and our faith bring us together, bonded like no other. I will miss James saying Mum, Oksana’s wisdom, Vincent’s bible study, Mark’s laugh, Dorkas and David’s adoration, Matthew’s hat, the tunetune neighbors, Latisha’s friendship, Isaac & Peter’s card games and all of the people who crossed our path greeting us albrony, albrony.

In the evening we had a ceremony at the GILLBT guesthouse. It was suppose to start around 4:30 or 5:00, but as those that have traveled understand African time, we began around 7:00. They had sparkling grape juice, cookies and candy bars. All of these things are precious, everything was so delicious, I almost forgot what chocolate tasted like. It was quite an honor. Everyone sat around talking about the project and praying for its success. Ceremonies are important here and they really cherish everything we do and this is a way that they can show their appreciation.

David and Dorkas walked us home and we spent some special time with them, showing them our pictures from home and reminiscing about our journey. Latisha stopped over to spend a few precious minutes with us, even though she has contracted malaria and is feeling very sick. In the meanwhile Tofic drops by and he and Joe have a discussion outside. So we are up very late and still need to pack. We are leaving very early in the morning.  Whenever you travel from Krachi you have to take the ferry and it only travels twice a day so we must make the 8:30 ferry and it takes about an hour and a half to get there. That is if nothing happens to your vehicle.
