I’ve been wanting to do a series in our prayer letters called “Then and Now.” I thought it would be good to take a look at the things we said in our presentations to churches and groups in the US and see how they have changed from what we originally thought they would be. So far, we just haven’t had the space in our letters but it seems like this is a good place to start.
Here is a simple one to get started:
Before we came to Ghana, we thought that we would be purchasing an Opel or similar vehicle to get us around town. It didn’t take long for us to realize that such a car would not even be able to get us from the main road to our house, especially in rain season.
Once we started to look for an SUV-type vehicle, we learned that it would actually be cheaper to buy a new car instead of a used one. We ended up with a Toyota Fortuner and it has been an amazing blessing to have.
(Do you see that rack on the back? That’s Paul’s brilliant idea for hauling extra stuff. He had it built especially for our car.)
