Another Ghana Visit
Well, we've added another notch to our "Trips to Ghana" belt. This was our shortest visit yet and a bit of a whirlwind: we left on Friday the 22nd, around noon, and arrived back on Friday the 29th at 3:45pm. We might have been a little sleep deprived, but generally, we had a fantastic, extremely productive week! Per usual, we are overwhelmed with gratitude towards everyone that prayed for our travels.
Anyone that follows us on Facebook saw that we brought two friends with us. Darren contacted us in February of 2014, after he heard Kate Radley (one of our high schoolers) speak about Eight Oaks at a church event. Through him, we met met Blake and Libby. They and their families have turned into huge financial and spiritual supporters of Eight Oaks--we are immensely grateful for the great friends they have become in such a short time. Unbeknownst to me prior to this trip, Darren has a real talent for photography and took some truly beautiful pictures. Hopefully we can coerce him into doing a guest post on here soon:)
As usual, I find myself lacking words when it comes to summarizing this experience. The girls are doing so, so well. They have changed and grown since my last visit in January and I am astounded by their progress in school. We are having complete conversations in English!
We are anticipating lots of exciting things on the horizon for Eight Oaks. The Lord is ever faithful, and we are thankful for His patience and provision as we clumsily try to navigate this road. We have made many mistakes along the way but His grace covers all. More news coming soon!
