If you get a chance, visit the baptist medical center in Nalerigu, Ghana. You will fly into the capital of Ghana, Accra (a-craw). There you will be greeted by someone who is holding your name on a piece of paper. From here you will drive to the guest house. This is a great transition point for your trip because there are several comfortable amenities and different types of people. The amenities will make your transition a little less difficult and the people will tell you great stories or give out advice from their own experience. From here you can either take the bus up to Tamale or you can catch a flight. We took the flight and we were served tuna or chicken sandwiches with juice or coffee at 6:30 am. In Tamale you are again greeted by someone who will drive you to Nalerigu which is a two hour drive over paved and dirt roads. Upon arrival there is a quick drop off and they tell you your room. Pretty much from here on out, you are on your own, to work or find work or relax or build a door or work in the peds ward or farm with the locals or walk to the river or drive with the long-term missionaries to the escarpment. We did it all! Or at least we collectively did it all! Here is a great glimpse of our time at the BMC.

    Dr. Court and the gang,
    I am following your blog and find it so very interesting. I love the videos and pictures too. What an adventure. I’m so glad God put you there to serve children medically and spiritually. You’re Jesus with skin on! I’m enjoying learning about the culture, laughing at your stories, and learning a bit of medical stuff too. I hope your parents put a group together at their home (reading this Karen & Doug?) sometime in the future so we can hear all about it in person! But, this is a great tool, too. We’re so proud of you, fulfilling your hearts desire. Prov. 3:5-6

    Earth’s crammed with heaven,
    And every common bush afire with God,
    But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
    The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

    What a great experience you four have had over the past few weeks! God has really blessed you and kept you safe. Enjoy the rest of your trip relaxing and spending time reflecting on what God has shown you. You are four very special people that God has great plans for in the future!
    Love you guys and can’t wait to give you all a big hug when you return to us!
    Love Dad
