Happy Thanksgiving from Ghana!
Ghana is feeling more like home now that we’ve moved into our rented home a week ago. This year we’ve been invited by an American missionary for a Thanksgiving dinner, we are looking forward to it. We are thankful for our new friends God has blessed us with.

In our devotions, we shared as a family what we were thankful for. Here is a few:

  • For God’s presence in our lives
  • For God's direction and blessing in building relationships with those who have the heart for the people of Ghana
  • Our family and friends in the U.S and here in Ghana.
  • For the many families and churches that are standing with us in prayer, encouragement and financial support. Thank you!
  • Legos (Joshua) Barbies (Hannah)
Meet some students from the University of Ghana who are part of the church plant launch team. We are encouraged by their passion, creativity, and devotion to sharing the gospel.

Our next goal is to have an outreach in the neighborhood in which we are living. This is Godfrey with two of our neighbors, Kwadey & Gordon. Behind them is Gordon's home, Kwadey lives in a similar structure with his daughter, Ernestina. There are many children in the neighborhood and our landlord has an open lot that is perfect for a small ‘park’. Our vision is to level the ground to make it suitable to play soccer, have a swing set, & sand box. This would be a great gathering place for the local children, young people, and parents. We would then be able to utilize this space to minister to those families. We hope to begin this project in December. Please continue to pray for God to prepare the hearts of those we will be sharing with.
Lamentations 3:22-23
22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends
    His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness;
    his mercies begin afresh each morning.
