9 Years in Ghana!

We boarded the plane to Ghana 9 years ago. We left our home land and our loved ones, for a people we didn't know. Why? To tell them about Christ and how they too, can miss a burning hell, by excepting Jesus Christ as their Savior. To also teach them about the Bible and start a Biblical church in their area.

As I look back at the pictures over the years, I am teary eyed. God has done great things. Mark_5:19  Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. I have learned so much over the years. I came to Ghana not knowing how to do many things, that is required to make due here in Ghana. I have also learned, my way (or the American way) is not always what works here. They have taught me their ways and I have adapted to many of them. I first came, hating the hot weather. I now LOVE the weather. Year round it is summer! Palm trees, coconut tree, orange tree, banana trees, mango, plantain and so many more.

I am not going to lie, many times it is hard and you get discouraged. Then you have a pity party for yourself, ho hum whoa is me. Then you just have to reflect on how good God is, then you realize, you don't have it so bad. Pretty good actually! We are blessed with so many blessing!

Psa_97:12  Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. KJV
