Christine sent this on behalf of all 3 gappers, (Amy,Emma and Christine) on the Step into the Gap programme. It was written at the start of the week. All’s well with the gappers. Enjoy…..
Well here we are after an intense couple of days’ travel!
Amy, Emma, Patrick and Christine started their epic Step Into the Gap trip at 8am at London City Airport last Monday.
After a quick touch down in Amsterdam, we arrived at the Society of the Holy Child Jesus Convent in Accra, our home for the next two days, after 11pm that evening.
But all that travel was definitely worth it!
The Holy Child sisters welcomed us warmly and have put us up in style. We’ve had a couple of days of fun, friendship and food and are feeling really at home here.
Today, we went to the memorial for Kwame Nkruma, the man who announced the independence of the Republic of Ghana in 1959 and went on to become Ghana’s first ever Prime Minister!
We were driven around Accra by our wonderful driver, Kofi.
And tomorrow we move on! We are leaving at 5am (!!!) to fly to Tamale, followed by a 3 hour drive to Bolgatanga to meet a whole new community. We’ll be doing some teaching, sharing in prayer and (hopefully) having the time of our lives!
