Week 1 Update

Dear Family and Friends,
Thanks for your support of our trip.
We have had a great first week! What follows is a day-by-day account of our trip so far by Charles Opalak.

June 20th

Wednesday evening, the group met at the Accra airport and travelled to the hotel with Lilimed personnel.  Jan, however, was delayed due to losing her passport in Oslo, but assured us she will be arriving the next day.  Everyone was in good spirits and our hotel was quite pleasant despite the lack of running water in some rooms.  After a dinner of rice and chicken the team retired to prepare for an early start to travel to Ho which will be our operational base for the trip.

In Ghana!

We have been in Ghana for about 5 days now and we are serving and learning a great deal! Matt and Varun will hopefully be gathering reflections from us throughout the trip and helping us post and send email updates during our time here. Thanks to everyone for their support, as everything we've worked towards during the year is now coming to pass. More updates to come.
