As much as we always LOVE being with our family and friends in the US, it is always good to get back home.

After staying four nights in Accra, we drove back to Tamale in the bus and as bus rides go… it was pretty great. Of course with only three of us in the bus I had my choice of seats so I just kept switching seats to see which one I liked best. Emmanuel said I was trying them all out. Finally just stretched out over four of the seats and slept for a couple of hours. It was nice.

We were up early this morning (Monday) and started cleaning and painting. You know – Spring Cleaning – the kind where you actually take all the books off the bookshelf and dust everyone of them, down on your hands and knees scrubbing the floor kind of cleaning.

Only we had LOTS of help. Gladys and Ajua were tackling the dusting, sweeping and mopping. Shembila was painting. Peter, John, Thomas A., and Wumpini were moving all the books and furniture and scrubbing the floors.

Thomas, Esther, Joanna and Judith all came to greet today. The girls have really grown. Emmanuel is getting a much deserved day off but I know he was busy at home as they are preparing for the Outdooring (baby naming ceremony) on Saturday for their new baby boy. He says baby and mom Cecilia are both doing well. Mercy and Jessica are loving having a little brother.

Oh, did I mention that we came back to no water and no LP gas in town? We do still have some LP in our current tank but no water so it is back to bucket baths! We are in Africa you know!

I am glad to know that you both made it safe to Accra and finally Tamale. Hope the ride was not too bumby.
Do you have lights? You mentioned no water.
How is the weather now?

I miss you all and Ghana. Hoping to come with Larry this year. Keep praying for Bobs health.
