Visiting villages & Wedding-2/4/12

Bishop joined us for breakfast at 6:30am on Saturday & then we left for the villages! With our Bibles, mosquito nets & plenty of candy for the children we left Shiloh House! This store was an " African QT"... Nice store & has station!

Within an hour we were at Aueydedn village! Actually walked to a 2nd village, too! Kind, smiling people looking for God's people to care... Shared candy, the gift of Jesus & mosquito nets! Hard to leave them!!

On the way back to Accra, Bishop stopped the van to show us a District church in Krabokesa he is building! Such hard workers who must be so thankful for the backhoe!!

We rushed back to our rooms to dress for the wedding!! What a beautiful bride & handsome groom! Then invited to a lovely wedding dinner!

We were not disappointed to head to the Shiloh House around 5 to rest & get ready for Sunday!! We are tired & hot Americans who love the we have met & reconnected with from our last visit!! God is SO GOOD!!
