Hey folks!

Our trip to Ghana has been great so far. It has been quite an adventure and we've learned a lot. I've been able to meet with a missionary who is interested in working with the Songhai. And, Emily has gotten a lot of work done so that her organization can send medical supplies to a hospital in northwest Ghana this summer.

To learn more about the Songhai, check out this website - http://seekingthesonghai.net/

Sorry I haven't been able to post pictures. Internet here is really slow. But to give you an idea of our travels here's list of the vehicles we've utilized:

taxi - in capital city of Accra
big bus - 13 hours to get from Accra to Wa (town in the northwest)
back of a pickup truck - 2 hours on wooden benches w/ 15 other people!
a dugout canoe - ok, well, that was to see hippos on the Volta River between Ghana and Burkina Faso
15 passenger van - 2 hours, WAY more than 15 passengers and blaring African music

It's been quite an experience. Next time I'm here, I hope you'll join me!
