We have started teaching Bible lessons at the Sekondi Deaf School. We had our first class to learn sign language this Wednesday. This is not our focus, but a tool that may be used later. Our focus is church planting in Kojokrom. The kids are enjoying it, they like learning the signs. I would like to keep learning if our schedule permits. They are very eager for us to learn their language. They are always teaching us. I am enjoying it so far.
I was so excited about a few weeks ago, I ran into my friend Basheru. He sells vegetables. He is also a Muslim boy, who is growing into a young man. I have been on the look out for him for many weeks. I bought some green peppers from him so I would get a chance to talk with him. I know he is being watched, especially when the white lady, who is a Christian, talks with him. All I can do it tell him the truth. It is up to him to make the choice.
I can't believe it, I am in denial. I turned 40 years old in September. Which by the way is the best time of the year. Love September!! When my mom turned 40, I thought, wow, that is old. I was anticipating a dreadful, horrible, rotten day. For some unknown reason, I was really happy!! I am looking forward to what the Lord has for me in this new season of life.
