We went to Counter Burger for dinner with the Haglunds and Glanfields to listen to the Jazz trio afterwards
I thought the above picture was a Ghana version of Dumb and Dumber!
We went to Aflao to church which was real crowded because it was held in the sitting room of the missionaries apartment. We afterwards drove to this empty lot was is for sale and could be used as a site to build a chapel some day.
Although the Aborigines Resort had real hard beds and poor food there was a nice pool and plenty of flowers.
In the nearby town was the remains of a slave fort that we toured.
These scales were used to weigh the slaves that were held in the room before loading onto ships. Prior to taking the slaves to the ships they were starved for two days so that they would be too weak to run away.
All of the Canadian senior missionaries got together and celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving complete with pie.
At the dedication of the new Mission Training Centre, Meg met this other senior missionary who had served in the same mission and same time that Meg did before she was married -what a coincidence! This is the third missionary that Meg has met in Ghana that served when she did.
We have installed washing machines in 5 apartments that are working well and we would like to install some more. We might try the model shown below which is cheaper than the other ones that were bought.
The other day we met this man and his dancing puppet outside the mission home. He was very entertaining.
