A New Journey
25 days till I will be in Ghana, West Africa. The countdown has begun and the realness of it all is setting in. Most of my pre-departure preparations are done and the waiting game has begun. I have put in my two-week notice, informing my employer that I will be leaving Casino Morongo, where I’ve worked as a valet for the last six years. Over that time, I’ve have made a lot of deep friendships. It will be tough saying good bye to the many who have become a part of my oikos. Along with saying good bye to my friends at work it will be hard to leave my close friends, His Kids, my church family, family friends, and especially my family. Everyone has had a huge impact on my life, and I will take all that I have learned as I embark on a new journey.
This past week I have gotten in touch with Reverend Theo Asare’s wife, Monica, she has ensured me that I am going to love it in Ghana. She is very kind and I am thankful she will be there for guidance. She even bought me a Ghana cell phone because my American cell phone will not have service. I have also emailed her son George who just this year graduated from the University of Ghana where I will be attending. George gave me the run down on the University and even said he will introduce me to his friends that are still going to the school. I have also emailed Charles Bayamfui, the man in charge of the children’s ministry at the church in Ghana. I am very excited to get over there and work alongside Charles and his team.
I am so thankful for the many people who have supported me both through prayer and gifts, it means a ton. I also want to give a special thank you to David and Sharon Kealy and the LifePoint Missions Team. It is very nice to have the leadership of such wise people to help me through this process. I know God is going to do great things through me. Continue to pray for me and for those who will become a part of my new oikos.
