Ghana Mission Trip 2019 (Page 2)

After many months of prayer and planning, our mission trip began on Tuesday evening, May 14th, when Central’s group of eleven said our “Good byes!” to our families and rolled out from Building 316. Mark and Nita Stephens were kind enough to take us and all of our luggage to the Huntsville airport in the church bus. Our flight itinerary takes us to Atlanta, Amsterdam, and Ghana’s capital city of Accra. We will continue our travels on Thursday morning until we arrive at our final destination, Sunrise Village, near the Upper East regional capital city of Bolgatanga (“Bolga” for short). We will be working in this area until returning home on Saturday afternoon, May 25th. We invite you to stay tuned for more updates.”

The Chief

The chief and the 8 subchiefs (there are 8 communities) met with us. It was like a meeting in the old testament. They welcomed us for about 20 minutes and we reciprocated. We were given a male goat as a gift from the community. The meeting lasted for about an hour. Now we will feed them and they will leave. We are now feeding the peole.who showed up from the community.

The Decorations

Allie, Tiara, and Taylor adding some much-needed decoration to this classroom.

Mr. Fix-It

Colton is one of the key “Mr. Fix-it” types we have on this trip.

A Warm Saturday Afternoon

It was a warm Saturday afternoon in the school building where the ladies were painting. This little girl stayed awake as long as she could.
