My nephews (from left to right – Evan, Dustin & Jeremy) out with the grinding wheel placed in the wooded area in front of my parent’s home. My father owns Brinkman Precision Grinding and so this was a special gift for him and the grandsons are learning the ‘trade’.
I met Jonas during our screening days for surgical patients. We talked both days and he is scheduled for surgery 30 of August. We have an Adopt-A-Patient program and I have selected Jonas. He is from Tema Newtown, a very poor area near to the port. You can’t see the tumour as it is covered by the doctor’s hand. Please pray with me for his restoration of health.
My friends Jan & Elizabeth Tuinier welcomed their baby daughter to the world on July 10th. Due to complications, Elizabeth had to have three more surgeries. Please pray for her complete health restoration. They are in Rotterdam, Holland. Their daughter’s name is Grace Isabella.
Since my first Sunday here, I have been attending Living Bread Missions church in Ashaiman. Ashaiman is one of the poorest communities in this area and one that we have targeted with some of our various programs. We have met with the pastor and looking for opportunities of partnership.
The man holding the girl is Udo, our Program Officer – he is the one I work for here on the ship. He had been our Executive Director on the Caribbean Mercy. The picture was taken during our Ghana surgical screening days. The man in the picture is our crew doctor, Gareth from the UK.
