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


that's so Hot!

99.9 degrees Farenheit.  That's what the temperature was here yesterday.  And the thermometer is on the porch, in the shade...and the power keeps going off sporadically.  Right now for instance it has been off for about 5 minutes.  I'm not complaining mind you...I LOVE Ghana and I love being here.  Just an observation.  I'll probably be posting more regularly again.  I bought a wireless modem and it seems to work pretty well so maybe you can keep up with me a little better now. 
I have been going to Twi classes once a week for about a month now.  (Twi is the language in the area of Ghana where I live)  My teacher thinks I'm doing  a good job.  My friends still laugh every time I say certain phrases....but they claim it's because it's just fun to hear someone white saying somethign in Twi; and not because I'm saying it wrong.  I'm not sure if they're telling the whole truth or not ;-)  I'm trying to decide if I'm going to come back to the US or stay here this summer.  School here won't be out by the time my ticket is scheduled so I'd have to pay to move the date....and I really want to stay here this summer...we'll see what happens.  Maybe I'll post some more pictures sometime soon.  For now, I love you & miss you all...but dont' expect me back any time soon :-)  My friends say I'm Obruni (white) on the outside and Bibini(African) in the inside...I'm an honorary Ghanaian according to them. 
In Christ

I don't expect you back, but I HOPE you will come back to visit soon. I want the new little Jones to have the honor of meeting Beth Ann so when I tell him/her about you, I can share about the time he/she met you. I'm due in rush....

So good to read your updates and know you're doing well. We miss you.

So good reading your update!! I think of you often and treasure the time we spent together last summer.

We're doing Forgotten God as a small group. Jeff talking about that guy over there saying "Brother Jeff--GOD'S IN ME" makes me smile every time I think about it. I think I am just beginning to understand the magnitude and power of that statement..GOD'S IN ME!!!!

I love you.
