Bon Voyage

Today we begin the journey that God put in my heart 11 years ago and Tywonn ten years ago.  The culmination of this event leaves us feeling excited and nervous all wrapped into one big twinkie.  We have plenty of errands to run this morning before we board the plane in Tampa, which leads us to Detroit, Amsterdam (that’s in the Netherlands for all you geographically challenged like Tywonn who thought it was in Germany), and finally landing in Ghana tomorrow about 6:30p Ghanian time.  For many God has asked you to financially partner with us: THANK YOU!  For many God has put it in your heart to be an advocate for us: THANK YOU.  For those of you who have been led to pray with us here are thoughts to be praying about and for as we depart:

  • Safe travel
  • Safe travel and arrival of all our luggage
  • Courage and peace and for the rough times 
  • A heart of gratitude for joyous times.

I guess that’s it for now.  Next time we’ll be writing we’ll be in Accra, Ghana.

    Tywonn & Alan,

    My prays have been and will continue to be with you. I just returned form a week mission trip in Brazil with 26 teenagers. It was undiscribibly (if thats a word) amazing. We pressented the gospel to thousands of teenagers. I can not wait to be able to go back again.
    All that to say I know you will be truley blessed in your endevors and will truley bless many people.

    God Bless,

    We are lifting you both up (and your luggage – we can relate so well to that request : ) Love you so much and are soooo excited for you! (I’ve almost cried for you several times today – seriously.) The Lord will watch over you and protect you as you move forward with this part of your journey. In the tough times, just Skype us and Jo Jo will cheer you up. I am sure the rewards of your journey will far outweigh the difficult and emotional times you face along the way. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Eph. 3:20 NIV) May you be blessed beyond your imagination in the years to come! All our love…Keith, Mandy, & Ella
