Arrived home to many family hugs and kisses late Saturday afternoon, after almost 40 hours of traveling from Kasei, Ghana. Our time with the villagers was precious and meaningful…praying, singing songs of thanksgiving, working with students and teachers, listening to stories of their lives and hopes. We are already making plans for next year’s return trip. I had about 40 minutes to shop for souvenirs at a small craft market on the way to the airport in Accra and found one shop with a good selection of the ground glass beads that Ghana is famous for. I’d been hoping to have some time to find these and had almost given up. And there they were. I am delighted with this stash of gorgeousness and thoughts are spinning about design ideas. They will probably involve leather. My hope is to sell the jewelry as a fundraiser for the primary school in Kasei to help purchase needed text books and paper. The government gives each grade level 10 math textbooks for about 60 students. No money is provided for basic supplies like paper or pencils.
Welcome and thanks so much for stopping by…
