5 More Sleeps 'Till Ghana by Kim Lawson
April 30, 2011

Yup...5 more sleeps and it's up, up and away to Africa!   Suitcases are packed.  3 Fifty pound bags each = 90 checked bags in total.  One for personal items, and 2 filled with tools, school supplies or clothing.

Thursday is coming fast. 
Still a lot left to check off the list, but we are getting there :)
Tomorrow morning we are together
once again at the commissioning service at 10am at Westney Heights Baptist Church. 
Below is our team list and the itinerary.  We appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers...that we travel safely, and that we stay healthy and strong through the build project, and as we return to our work here at home in three weeks.
