The Hasselhoff

Cheyney is telling me that 'today was neat'. Not really any explanation there, but it's 1:30 am, so there's not really a need for one.

Today was the last day of street evangelism. We traveled to a location outside the main city that we've never been to before. My impression of the location was that it appeared more impoverished than most of the places we've seen. I think that the attitude of the people was more hopeless as well, probably as a result. We divided into our 5 teams and set out for a couple of hours of reaching out in the community. Our team talked to several guys, two of which were probably around 12 (MAYBE 13!) who decided to give their lives to Christ!! These two boys admitted to being bullies around the community; stealing, lying, even beating up other children for no other reason but to be mean. So please pray that their decision would be sincere and that godly men would be raised up to lead them in that community!

We also enjoyed a 'tour' of Takoradi this evening which was great, because we were able to see more of the city than we've seen on our crazy drives to the churches! We drove down to the harbor, around the town, and attempted to get into a large soccer stadium right outside Takoradi. It was a good diversion from the knowledge that we will be leaving Ghana soon.

Today at lunch we tried Fu-Fu. Interesting. That's the best I can say. It's like a partially cooked loaf of bread which you pour soup over top of it. Then you dig your hand in the steaming hot soup and grab a piece of the dough. The dough is relatively tasteless, but the soup we had on ours provided the spice and kick we've grown to love from Ghanaian food!

I think the feeling among the team is that, while we're excited to come back home, we each will leave a large part of our hearts with the pastors and the people that we've met here in Ghana.

Finally, we wanted to leave you with a video from our beach day...our version of the Baywatch run. Enjoy!
