Update #1 (on the trip)

I want to start by thanking all of you for your prayers. The trip was long but well worth it. I had a meeting with some missionaries and pastors in Ghana. We had 4 African countries represented at the meeting (Ghana, Togo, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso). We have formed a fellowship and we were meeting about our plans this year. This is the same group that had the pastors conference last year at our church.

Then I was off to Abidjan, Ivory Coast. I was a little apprehensive about traveling in the Ivory Coast due to the war there, mostly because my license plate is from Burkina Faso. Burkina and the Ivory Coast haven’t always been to friendly during this time. Surprisingly I was rarely stopped and never hassled in South(by the military).

The whole trip was over 2,000 Kilometers. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot but on African roads it can be. There was one stretch that was only 120 kilometers and it took over 4 hours because of the potholes or should I say craters.

    -Good to hear that all went well. I know what you mean by ‘craters’. When we traveled from Takoradi to Cape Coast, the potholes were amazing -especially when sitting in the BACK of the van! I learned what ‘bruises’ were that summer. May God bless you.
