We were slightly worried with Tropical Storm Bill going through Dallas where
we planned to meet last Wednesday. Fortunately after several flight
delays and cancellations the last person arrived in Dallas at 1AM Thursday just
in time to meet the rest of the team at the airport at 7:30am.
Saturday we did our first task here in Ghana, a crusade at a location known
for heavy drug and alcohol use. In Ghana
we use crusades to help prepare for a new church plant. Sunday we preached at seven churches and did
another crusade Sunday night.
Monday we started classes. We are
teaching Genesis 1-11. I was encouraged
by how much students retained from previous classes. The students were answering questions with
information they received from Attributes of God (taught January 2014),
Hermeneutics (taught June 2014), and Biblical Theology (taught January 2015).
Please pray for how the students and teachers handle the heat. On Monday the temperatures were over 100
degrees with high humidity, teaching in classrooms with no electricity. As the temperatures get higher you can see it
sapping the energy of both students and teachers.
