Last Day at the School

Today is my last day at the school. Last night I printed a picture for each one of my students. Yes, I know what you are thinking… They are blind, they can not see the picture. It is true all of the students are legally blind but a lot of them have a little bit of vision and ALL of them love pictures. I printed up pictures (thanks Dad) for them and spent a long time writing little notes to them in Braille and taped them on the back of the pictures. I hope they like their gift. Gifts are very important in Ghanaian culture.

I am sad to leave. I really have adapted well to the community here and love all the students. It was hard last week for me when I realized I only had one more week left but I know God has a bigger plan for me. Sure I may have to stay in the states for a little while to graduate but then… Well for now, as you all have guesses I feel the Lord is calling me back to Africa! Hmmm, who would have thought  Not sure where in Africa yet, Ghana maybe but there are many countries in Africa. I will keep you all updated.

As for now: Please pray for all the good byes I will be making and the transitions that will be taking place both with me and the students at the school. I will be leaving all the teaching materials in hopes that it will be used.

Thursday (tomorrow) I will be taking the long bus ride back to Accra. I will let you all know as soon as I can that I made it safely.

I was able to pass out some of the pictures already this morning and oh man did my students love them!!! So cool to see!


  1. Safe travels, Maddy! God bless you on your return home.

  2. Wow, Maddy. I am so pleased that you have been able to minister so well to the children in Ghana! I can't wait to see you and ask more questions. Isn't following the Lord the most exciting journey? Bless you, dona
