All journeys have secret destinations, of which the traveler is unaware.

I have learned to be content in whatever circumstance I am. Philippians 4:11b

Another new year

Well it's 2010.  It feels strange to be able to say "twenty" in the year but that's what it is I guess.  Things are going great here.  I & Laura (another volunteer) have been in charge of the house because the Hs are traveling in India for another week or so.  I have to say that I have so much more appreciation for what they have to deal with sometimes than I did before they left.  Sometimes the teenagers in the house can be a challenge. 
School is going well.  Almost all of my students are back.  One of them came back but she has not been here at all this week so I'm not sure what's going on there.  I have started taking Twi classes with two other people so hopefully by this time next year I will be able to speak Twi a lot better than I do now.  Now I know just enough to get myself laughed at. 
They internet has been pretty good lately, I'll post some pictures in the next couple of weeks I think.  We've been having a lot of lessons at assembly about goals and setting/reaching goals so I have this long list of goals for the new year.  I also have a list (almost finished) of day to day activities to help me achieve those goals.  Now before you start thinking that I am just really driven, it was homework for one of our Wednesday evening assemblies.  I did it though, which is more than some people can say. 
I've been really thinking about my future a lot lately.  I don't see myself wanting to leave Ghana anytime soon.  I need to figure out a long-term projection or plan for what I want to do...pray for me to have some discernment about that.  Thanks. 
I love you all and miss most of you ;-)
I'll do a better job of keeping up to date with how things are going here.  I'll also do better at putting pictures up on here or facebook.  I hope you're all doing awesome in the Lord, I know I am. 
Love you
BAM
