It’s Saturday afternoon and everything is relatively calm here in Carpenter … at last.
For the past month the preparation work has been extensive and particularly intensive this past week. The grocery order is in (two days of open market shopping – two truckloads), the cow has been butchered, the beds are ready, the translators have been briefed, the drivers are waiting in Accra for the team, and that’ just a brief sampling of the pages of logistics in place to ensure that as many patients as possible are helped while the health team is here. And because this is Africa, for every plan A there often needs to be a plan B.
So, we are ready at this end. Bring it on.
I was reflecting last night on all the preparations that have been going on in Canada, in Ghana, and in the UK and how results will only be seen, and the purposes of the program carried out when all the teams come together here in Ghana. The Lord has a purpose for all of this as well and it is certainly exciting to be part of His plan.
