Team Peru Visits a Second Generation Church
Recently we received a visit from some men from Team Peru. They were visiting with us in an effort to learn about our church planting effort here in Ghana. We visited a few of our church plants. The picture to the left [below in this post] is taken with Pastor David Pentsil and his wife Joyce, myself, and Bro. Dan Hubbard, Team Peru leader.

The floors were covered with sludge, often disturbed by snake trails. The foul smell was nearly overwhelming.
Our greatest joy is our Thai people. Continue reading
