Computer is WORKIG!!

So much has happened since I was able to write in my journal. Mack has made several trips to Accra this month. (DECEMBER) Our yearly renewal to stay in Ghana is all finished, we have the stamp and everything. PTL. Joseph broke his glasses so they both headed to Accra to get him a new pair. Then he headed back to buy some Christmas gifts. Then he had to return some Christmas gifts. JOY!

Our computer is up and running. On one of those trips to Accra he picked up an Internet security for the computer. I think we had a couple of virus.

Priscilla and Nellie came to the house before Christmas to help me bake some Christmas cookies and banana bread for the Church Christmas Party. I got them a little bracelet as a gift. Lamissy wanted to come but at the last minute her Uncle needed her at the house. Prince and Koasi came over and helped put together the Blessing baskets to hand out during our Christmas Caroling with the church. We had a great time Christmas Caroling. We have never done that before in Ghana. Not sure how it would work? I needed a scarf and gloves or something. We had candles so I guess that made it feel festive. We gave the baskets to four families with someone in that family who already comes to church, to encourage others from the family to attend church. We wanted to be a blessing and show the Love of Christ this Christmas season. Our last visit was to Lamissy's uncle. Lamissy is so excited for the Lord, but her uncle hinders her. He allows her to come Sunday morning but that is all, she would love to come for the other services and extra activities but is not allowed. When we showed up at her house, he was talking very rough, asking her if she knew we where coming. He came out of the house and greeted us, (he was not to happy) after we where done singing we presented our basket. He was surprised. He thanked us and Lamissy sent his thanks again on Sunday morning. We have seen her come even for the Christmas Eve service.

Mack bought some pizza cheese for Christmas. We are planning on having pizza for New Years Day! the kids are excited about that. It is a treat for us. We hope you all have a Happy New Year!!!!!!!

The end of the year is here

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving . I know we did. We had plenty of food and even had a turkey this year and it was good. Thanks to another family bringing it from Kumasi. We enjoyed the fellowship of our other missionaries friends and we certainly are thankful for God's blessings.

On Wednesday morning as we were scouring about to get the house cleaned up for our company to arrive. Matthew was running through the living room, tripped and knocked his head on the coffee table. He split his head open on the side near his eye. He ended up with 3 stitches. He is doing fine.

Did some Christmas shopping already. Not much to buy. It is our big good will store. I manage to find 2 pairs of NEW jeans for Mack, I just have to have them hemmed? Trying to find something for the boys is a challenge. Naomi there is always purses, shoes, girly stuff to buy. We are having a wooden checker board made for the boys. The kid are getting excited. Me, it is to hot to get excited. Way to hot, to be in the Christmas spirit. Remember Jesus is the reason for the Season.

We are having trouble with our computer. It has been working here and there. So if you don't hear from us that is the reason. Please keep praying for the property here in Ghana? They are negotiating on a price. The land is valued at a high price, but God can work and they can give us a reasonable price. AMEN! The building that is currently on the property has to be torn down. It looks like it could fall over any time. If this is not the place, pray that God directs us to another place. Bible School finishes up next week with exams and will have a break until the New Year!
