Ghana on vacation

Thanks to everyone who has been praying that we were able to get away for a rest. I am writing this from the SIM guesthouse in Ghana where we are staying. The weather has been a refreshing change from what we were experiencing in Niger, much cooler with a lot more rain. We didn't get to spend all week on the beach as we had originally expected, but that worked out for the better in the long run.
When we did get to the ocean it was a magnificent reminder of the splendour, power and creativity of the amazing God that we serve. The waves were fierce. We got to the beach in Accra yesterday with friends from the guesthouse and they told us that they hadn't seen the water so rough or so high as it was yesterday. It is amazing how facing the power of nature can help to bring your life into perspective. God is good!
I am hoping that guest house has a quick enough internet connection to let me post pictures (unfortunately the pictures for some of the other blogs are still on my computer back in Niger!) Oh and by the way, Ben lost his first tooth this week!
