The power is on & the Internet is working!!
The journey was long, but everything went good. They made me check my carry on in Chicago & then I guess they just didn’t put it on the plane. Everyone they made check their bags didn’t get theirs but Patrick & I went to Accra yesterday & got it. So it worked out fine.
Things are going good. I’ve been to the orphanage a couple times but since it’s been the weekend & Friday was a holiday I went the beach & cape coast with the other volunteers. Been learning to get around, which is good cuz the other volunteers leave in 3 weeks & I can’t imagine being capable of getting myself around on my own lol. Two of the girls here are from Brigham City, so that has been nice to have people from so close to home.
The shoes for Patrick fit perfect, he is very excited. We are going to present the kids with the books, shoes, & clothes tomorrow or Tuesday. The kids that need shoes will get them & those that don’t will get clothes. Then they will save the rest for when they are needed. Patrick was very excited for the computer & the razor.
We are moving the chicken farm starting today to the house. I guess the man he rents the land from wants it back so now the chicken farm will be in the yard of Patrick’s house, should be interesting. The kids will be helping us move 400 chickens lol, so I think I’ll take my camera.
