The Team arrived in Carpenter around 4:00 this afternoon, together with ALL of the luggage that had followed them from various originating points in Canada and Europe. The bus trip to the north from Accra was reportedly smooth and uneventful and quite a bit shorter than in previous years. Improved roads around Accra made it “just” a nine hour journey instead of the 10 to 12 hours that they had previously experienced and expected.
After a wonderful Ghanaian style greeting from part of the Ghanaian team, the 200+ pieces of luggage were unloaded and sorted and there was actually a bit of time before dinner for some to take a quick shower.
This evening all hands were on deck for a few hours to help with the unpacking and organizing and for team meetings. All is quiet again now with a much needed catching up on sleep the main thing on the agenda.
We are so thankful to the Lord for safety, health and well-being for every member of the team and for arrival at destination of all the supplies that were so carefully planned and prepared.
Tomorrow, when the Ghanaian team joins us, and patients start streaming though, the real work begins.
Keep us in your prayers.
