The Chief’s

Filed under: News Updates @ 3:18 pm and

Since the arrival of the boats on Thursday, we have been working almost nonstop until dark every day. We have an audience of 50 or so people at any given time. No one can walk by without stopping to look at these vessels and their workers. We have many helpers young and old. The young […]

Have you allowed God to stretch you today?

Today I wake up excited to know that the boats will be arriving. I have made many friends and they too are eagerly waiting to see these boats I have been talking about. I came here to serve Christ, open minded to what challenges await me and whatever jobs he threw my way. Things weren’t […]

Breaking News……

I interrupt this broadcast and take you live to Krachi. Four white people have been roaming the area for the past two weeks and now a tractor trailer has arrived with five shiny new boats. Hundreds gather to witness this amazing sight.  Many are joining in to unload the container, making a difficult job easy […]

Did you say brownies?

Filed under: News Updates @ 3:15 pm and

Anyone who knows me well or even just a little knows how much I enjoy my sweets.  Well in Ghana the people here do not usually eat sweet things or really have them available to them. So when I visited Oksana on Saturday I was surprised when she baked me brownies. They were so good. […]

Power

Filed under: News Updates @ 3:13 pm and

About 5 years ago, I was on Erie blvd in Syracuse and wanted to purchase a cold drink. I stopped in a convenience store and made my selection. The power was out and they could not sell me anything as the cash registers required power. I tried two other stores before I gave up. No […]

Uncle Eric’s Team

The field is dirt with wooden goals made from long tree branches. There are no lines on the field, bleachers or concession stand. The […]

Paul bought a goat for our lunch today. As the guys were butchering the goat Matthew got a cut. Normally they just take care of it with tree leaves; they have one tree that is good for pain. You can put it in tea or soups and I don’t know for sure but they can […]

As I sit here preparing to write this blog a boy approaches me to see if I like football and gets Joe to go to his field where his team is with no ball. Then he asks for 10 cedis for shoes. It is not uncommon for them to ask for money or things. You […]

Joe and I decided to regroup today. We took time to reflect on our journey and read. News is the boats are getting out of customs, duty is paid. We have a lot of work to do when the boats arrive since they are so delayed in getting here. The days are hot and sticky […]

Filed under: News Updates @ 3:06 pm and

I arranged to attend a primary school today. I got to sit in on a science lesson taught to grade 6 about food poisoning. I found the topic quite relevant to this area. I learned a lot about how to be careful here in Ghana. Then I got an hour to talk to the children […]
