CBBC 9th Anniversary

We had a good Easter Sunday here in Ghana. The week before Easter at the deaf school, went really well, because the headmaster was not there. It is hard to communicate with the deaf, not knowing their language and the headmaster knows enough to confuse everyone. When he lets our teacher teach, things go smoothly and we connect with the students. The devil doesn't want God's Word to have free reign. Naomi and Matthew's classes go better. They have the younger kids and have a student that helps them with signing. They even sign a little in their classes. Easter services went well at CBBC. Easter Monday is a big day here in Ghana. We had the church over our house for games, fun and food of course!

Cornerstone Biblical Baptist Church had their 9th Anniversary on April 17th, this year. Prince's wife, Linda, did a great job preparing chicken and rice for all of us. That is a job! We had our evening service around 3:00 we gave testimonies and sang songs. So thankful for a church that preaches the Bible here in Ghana. We have two of the best Pastors and now a Pastor's wife. God has done great things over the years.

Outreach

Every month we've been having a football match and a movie outreach in different villages. The football has been between 3 churches. Our last football match, Kojokrom won!!! We were excited! The guys practiced every week. Our movie outreach has been getting better each time. The last village we saw more adults and just were able to talk to the people. Some where saved. We invite and soul-win before and during the movie.

For Christmas Mack got me some new laminate for my counters. The old stuff I had on there was cracking, chipping and faded. Matthew and Joseph worked hard and put new laminate on them. They look very nice. They had to chisel the laminate to cut it, then spread the glue and file the excess off and smooth it. 








On Sunday Prince gets the kids from Kojokrom on a tro-tro, (van) then we take them home after church. Our vehicle is packed. This picture James in sitting on my lap and Nehemiah is crammed in on the other side. The back is stacked two or three high. Overload!!!



This is our latest family picture with Koasi and Prince. Everyone is passing me up. Joseph is catching up to Matthew. We will see if he passes him. Matthew shakes his head, no, it's not going to happen. 



Thankful for my family.

JUST FOR FUN!!










Kaitlin and Zachary came with their dad for a visit to Ghana to visit the Harrison's. They invited us over for dinner and fellowship. They brought these face coaster, they were a lot of fun. The one of Nehemiah looks like my dad. ha haha

2016!!!



2016!! Here is a picture of the baptism we had at the end of November. Ebenezer and sister Nicolina with their parents and Pastors. 


We had 2 weeks off of school and some ministry. With West Ridge and Sekondi Deaf schools being closed and no Bible Classes at the church it makes it that much harder to get back into the swing of things. Prince and Linda had us over before Christmas. They pounded fufu and we watched a movie and had fellowship with them. It was very nice.

Finished! Served with chicken and Light Soup

Enjoying!!

January 3rd our son Joseph turned 14. I can't believe they are getting so old. It is sad to think after this term our oldest two we leave us and head off to college. I am ready at the moment, but I am SO not ready either. Yikes! I am trying to just get my focus on today and enjoy today. Tomorrow will come. That has been our kids focus too. In 2 years we leave for college. My question is what are you doing today? Don't waste these two years thinking of them. Do something for God in these two years.  Please pray for them and us. It will be a transition, like another culture shock.

He is a little wet. They got him!
