Update 11/8//2012 - Our 5 Ghana missioners arrived Tuesday safely at Accra, noon local time,
after a nearly uneventful flight of nearly 10 hours. Severe turbulence caused the plane to drop several times. We arrived a little tired but non the worse for ware.

Due to the generosity of our supporters we were able to bring with us over 400 pounds of school and health care supplies. On Wednesday we sorted and organized the donated items and as a result we will be able to serve four schools in: Wegbe-Kplime, Kpando, Vokpo-Fhu, and Vakpo-Todzi. We will also be able to to serve the Dora Memorial School with health and hygine supplies.

We will be providing children's medications and pre-natal care supplies to the Woman's Clinic in Ho.. Medical supplies are heading to the local hospital and medications will be supplied to the local clinic and pharmacy. We are tired from our journey, but the warm welcome from our hosts, and the anticipation of serving the people of Ghana give us renewal for work ahead.
