  • SAMUEL’S DREAM AND MY HOPE –BY GAIL HUBER

    Today I woke up in my own bed in Virginia Beach, but all day my thoughts have been filled with the children from Akramaman who were in our reading camp. I especially find myself thinking about Samuel Kasum. The first day of camp Zach and I gave an informal assessment to each child so that […]

  • CALLING ALL PRIMARY TEACHERS–YOU CAN HELP IN AFRICA

    I have been working with children in Ghana for the last six years.  They are so eager to learn but are often held back from learn because of the lack of supplies.  Tomorrow we will dedicate a new Primary School.  St. Paul’s is a public primary school administered by the Anglican church.  Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope […]

  • LOVE–FOUR LETTERS THAT CHANGE LIVES

    LOVE is such a powerful word.  The image of love is powerful as well.  The mother with her child and the grandma with her grandchildren immediately warms my heart. Love also comes in many other forms.  For children here in Ghana over the last week it has come with big hugs, encouraging words–even words they […]

  • OUR FINAL DAY – READING CAMP DAY 5

    I do not know where to begin.  The last day of reading camp.  The last day of fifty village children smiling and laughing with us.  The last day of little ones looking up with their deep brown eyes saying “wo mii…” Hold me” and older ones throwing their arms around us ansd holding our hands. […]

  • WALKING IN THE CLOUDS

    So today we had to get up at 4:30 to drive to the rain forest. It took about 3 hours to get there. Then we found out the canopy walk is the highest and longest walk it the world (there are only five in the world).  It was by far the coolest thing we have […]

  • HUNGER KEEPS A CHILD FROM LEARNING – READING CAMP DAY 4

    I asked the team to tell me what moment was special for them today.  Sara answered immediately “Victoria smiled”.  I have written about Victoria almost every day this week.  She is a classic example of why we work here to provide education not only for the children but for the parents as well.  Victoria suffers […]

  • IT’S ALL ABOUT EDUCATION-READING CAMP DAY 3

    There are posters and billboards everywhere in Ghana.  The medical warnings on Malaria, Buruli Ulcer, Cancer and Tuberculosis are graphic and shocking.  But even so, if you cannot read, you may see the pictures but never know what to do when it happens to you. Many people responded to Ian’s story yesterday about Moses, who […]

  • PHOTOS OF THE MISSION TEAM

    Today has been so long for me. I was up at 4:30am. At Mercia’s school by 5:30. We helped prepare for the graduation ceremony. The team arrived by 9:30 and left at 4pm. I am just too tired to write but pictures are worth a thousand words.

  • FOUR US TEENS AT THE CULTURAL MARKET OF ACCRA

    Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope has been doing short term mission trips to Ghana for the last 5 years but this year marks a first. We have four teens from Maryland and Virginia joining us to help with a Reading Camp in the village of Akramaman. Last year we brought our first teen, Tyler Brewer, to help […]
