Tonight our Sunday School class gathered at Tyler & Amy Ross’ house for a cookout and time of prayer for our trip. Trey had a blast playing with his pals one last time and we were greatly encouraged by the support of all of our friends. Here are some images from the event:
We thank God for answering our prayers and providing for all of our travel expenses. SFBC just called us to let us know how much money was raised at the pancake breakfast and from individual people’s contributions. All of our travel expenses have been covered and we will have some extra money to purchase supplies to deliver to the hospital and missionary personnel on the field.
If you contributed in any way we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every time we have gone on a mission trip our friends and family have stepped up and made it financially possible. So thank you for making our opportunities to serve realities.
Sunday morning the youth at our church help throw a pancake breakfast fundraiser for our upcoming trip. They made & served pancakes for the church and asked for donations for our trip.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who has contributed and to the youth who got up so early on Sunday morning to work on the fundraiser. Here are some photos of them hard at work. Also, those of you that attended our wedding may recognize the aprons.
One of the more popular tourist destinations in Ghana is the canopy walk found in the Kakum National Forest. It takes about 3 hours to get to Kakum, and unfortunately the canopy walk only takes about 30 minutes and is the only attraction at the park. No camping, no hiking, nothing. They do have some guided nature walks but they are quite short and more suited for elementary kids.
Here are some images from my visit there in 2005 (click image to open gallery).
