  • I think I can, I think I can

    This car is now 15 years old and still thinks it can. It had 60,000+ miles on it when we purchased it, thanks to Church of the Redeemer in Sarsota. Now the odometer has turned over, and over and I cannot even imagine how many miles it has traveled. This was yesterday when we traveled […]

  • We Found Her!

    Two years ago Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope installed a computer lab at St. Paul’s Junior High School in an effort to help the students pass the B.E.C.E., Basic Education Certification Examination. All students in Ghana must pass this exam in order to enroll in High School. Since its inception in 2004, St. Paul’s has not had […]

  • Online vs In Line Shopping

    Online vs In Line Shopping

    While talking with my husband the other night he questioned why I needed to be in Ghana two weeks before my team arrives to run the Reading Camp. Well, a lot has to do with online vs in line shopping. There is no online shopping here in Ghana, so everything is in line or the […]

  • THEN A MIRACLE HAPPENED!

    By Debi Frock, Founder/Executive Director I just landed in Ghana yesterday. The sights, sounds and smells brought back a flood of beautiful memories as soon as I stepped off the plane into the sunlit sky. Each year when I return it feels like I never left. The flight was longer than usual; going from Washington, DC, […]

    Art 101 in Akramaman.   By Bruce Neumann

    Art for reading camp has changed! Last year I did a structured art project each day for the reading camp. This year I am to do some preset items and use my imagination to fill the time. At the 2014 camp, I had some boys who seemed to have a knack for painting, so I […]

  • TO MARKET TO MARKET TO BE HIT BY A FAT PIG, by Debi Frock

    I can’t believe that I have been in Ghana almost two weeks and Drew Davidsen has been here over a week.  At times it seems that it was only yesterday that I was packing, weighing and repacking four suitcases but time has flown by as we have done several weeks worth of work in the […]

  • True Drew from Ghana

    I woke up this morning around 6 am. We were  to leave around 7:30 am to visit 4 schools that serve rural villages. My roommate, Joshua, was already up and getting ready for school. I took my vitamins and got set to workout but was soon greeted by the power going out. Next thing I […]

  • “Mom, can me and my friends send bug spray to kids in Africa?”

    How would you respond to that question?  You can just imagine the surprise on Gwendalyn Levine’s face when her 7-year-old asked this question. Owen is about to celebrate his 8th birthday and like most children he has been planning his birthday party since the day after his last birthday. For the last year he has […]

  • Just how far would you walk to save your baby? Writings from a non-runner who just ran a ½ marathon.

    We have all been influenced in our adult lives by things we did as a child. I loved going to Sunday School because it was fun, exciting and my teacher, Ella Deane, was so encouraging. That made me want to teach Sunday School—and I did for 30+ years. My piano teacher, Jack Hasslinger, made me […]

  • Sharing the Secret

    Every once in a while a project comes along that truly touches your heart. Last year I was introduced to a wonderful idea to help children in developing nations learn how to overcome problems with worms. “The Secret to Being Strong” is a coloring book developed by Jean MacKay Vinson and JAMSBooks to introduce children […]
