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!
