Greetings from Ghana!

Greetings Beloved Ones!

It has been three days since our team (Zach, Ashton, Shelby, and I) has reached the Village of Hope outside of Accra, Ghana.  We left on May 31st from Dallas and arrived in Accra on June 1st.  Aside from Zach temporarily losing his yellow fever vaccination record in London Heathrow Airport and finding it in a trashcan about an hour later, all travels went smoothly.  Thanks for your prayers for a safe journey!

The Village of Hope is tucked away outside of the city limits about a mile from the beach.  All total, between the school and the orphanage, there are around 600 kids ranging from 2-17 years of age.  We were immediately involved our first day here, teaching and assisting in the school.  After the kids get out of school for the day, we then spend time with them, helping cook dinner, attending devos and church, and bonding with the youth and house parents.

All in all, it has been a crazy first few days.  Between jet lag, time adjustment, and some culture shock, there have definitely been easier days.  But despite all that, there is so much to be thankful for.  There has been such ease in connecting with the kids, and I truly look forward to growing in relationship with them.

A verse that I have been thinking about these past couple days is Matthew 10: 40,42 when Jesus says, “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me…And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”  Let’s praise Jesus for how we have been received with open arms by these little ones and continue to pray that God would use us to give them a cup of cold water.

Grace and peace,

    There are actually quite a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice point to deliver up. I provide the ideas above as basic inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place the most important thing can be working in trustworthy good faith.

    How much does it cost to rent a transportable oxygen generator?You can actually rent a transportable oxygen generator rather than buying it through Medicare. DME will rent you the oxygen supply then charge Medicare a monthly fee to repay the rent.

    If someone receives the nebulizers from a pharmacy or medical equipment company, the person there’ll explain the way to use it. The operation of every nebulizers is slightly different. it’s important to read the instructions given by your doctor for a selected device.
