Welcome to day one of Ghana mission Dream Teams 2010. This was my first time flying United Airlines direct from Washington, DC to Ghana. I was blessed to have Anita Dudek, The Rev. Becki Neumann and Bruce Neumann see me off. It is very nice to fly direct. I watched a movie, slept and then arrived in Ghana.
Oh how my heart leapt for joy as we flew over Accra. Seeing the dirt roads and many houses with only walls, just made me realize how much I love this country.
Mercia, Sophia and Vivian met me at the airport then had a splendid meal waiting for me at Mercia’s home. Unfortunately, many others had planned to meet me yesterday but I had the wrong date for arrival.
But now I am here to a beautiful 75degrees with a slight breeze. I am not missing the Maryland heat. Gladys, Mercia’s house help, is wearing a long sleeve blouse, a dress and jeans. I am in shorts and a t-shirt and very comfortable. I know that God has a wonderful plan for this trip and I hope you will tune in each day to enjoy the adventure. Akwaaba to all!
