I was met at the Kotoka airport in Ghana by Seth, Cecilia, Ruth and Naakai. It took forever to get our suitcases, waiting over an hour and a half! Once homeward bound with Ruth, I enjoyed a lovely breeze as rainy season has begun in earnest. Many new high rises are being built, especially around the airport. Soon, the Holiday Inn will not be solitary, but will be joined by several other hotel chains. Flagstaff House, built by the Kofour government as the Presidential Palace, apparently continues to be vastly vacant. The foreign ministry makes use of a small portion of it. The Canadian High Commission stands proudly, with flag flying, as usual. Movenpick Hotel looks gorgeous, standing tall in the midst of city central. Jocelyne tells me that the rooms are around $300 per night. Ghana is on the move. You can just feel the energy.
I’ll be keeping you in the loop, as access to the Internet permits. Keep us all in your prayers, as we desire to make wise choices and seek to reach out and make a tangible difference in the lives of those we touch.
