Three of the missionaries are back in their areas at this writing. For one of them, however, President Heid requested that he say a few more days. He was suffering from a concussion and President felt he needed a little more time to recuperate.
We are so glad they are doing well and are dealing with this traumatic experience with strength and courage.
Elder Radmall on the left, Elder Winborg in the middle, and Elder Buehner were ready for some fun for P Day. This was five minutes before the accident. Elder Eduok was in the front seat.
Elder Radmall and Elder Winborg are doing ok, but needing rest.
We had a major downpour this week.
Sister Owoses and Sister Ohanga were Sister Training Leaders. Sister Owoses returned to Namibia and Sister Ohanga to Kenya.
President asked us to take a few missionaries to a Tro-Tro Station, which is only a few miles from the mission office. It was "lights out" in that section of town, so the routine short drive took 45 minutes. On the way back we noticed this building and believe it is connected to the National Lottery.
The Fortune House is actually in the main business section of downtown Accra. There are modern buildings as well as vendors everywhere!
The Movenpick is a very nice hotel. We get our mission medications at the pharmacy there and have eaten at the dinner buffet.
And, at every intersection there are Tro-tros and hawkers.
Friday night we ate at a restaurant called "Burgers and Relish". Our office counterparts in the Ghana Accra West Mission, Elder and Sister Monro, thoroughly enjoyed their snicker bar milkshake. They are from Australia and we assist each other when we have office questions!
This is some of the scenery on the way back from church today in Ashaiman, which is about 45 minutes from our apartment. The church is in a nice home in the middle of vendor "shacks" and a dirt thoroughfare with many Tro-tros and taxis!!
Sunday is a great day to drive on the Tema Motorway. There is less traffic, so we don't have to dodge slow trucks in the left lane, etc. The road is being widened, which is greatly needed during peak travel times.
