We have just 3 Sunday's left in Ghana, before we leave for Ohio! It is an emotional time as we say goodbye to those we have come to love here in Ghana. Yet we are excited because we get to say Hello to our family and friends back in the States! It has been hard to stay focused and it crazy around here. The kids got done with school last week. They are helping me (I think) to clean and pack. It is hard to know what to take and what to leave behind. We have been preparing for our return when we first got back in 2007. Training and teaching the nationals to carry on the work in our absence. We feel God has enabled us with two great preachers who have not only been trained in the Bible school, but my husband has spent years and many hours teaching these men. Our church is young and small and excited. We have preachers and teachers and leaders in the church we didn't have 3 years ago. God has blessed! It is His church, we are just a tool being used in His ministry.
We had the graduation of 5 students in the Bible School, two are from our church, Cornerstone Biblical Baptist Church. We have Revival starting Sunday, May 3oth. We will be leaving Ghana on June 15th arriving in Ohio on June 16th.
We are excited to see everyone again. I have nieces and nephews I haven't met yet. Please pray for us not only as we travel but for the church here in Ghana. The church land is still a work in progress. Mack and Pastor Davis met with the lawyer (he is the one who owns it) he says it is for us, we can't back out now...he says just be patient as we are getting paper work done?? We have been working of this since November? He says by the end of June? of course we will be back in the States. It is not what we had planned but we are trusting in the Lord. As you see a lot of ???? Ghana is slow on most things they do. You can see the frustration. Our rent is up on the little room we are meeting in, in November.
God is good! and His blessing are evident! "Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Ps 37:4 Are you being a delight to Him?
