Home Sweet Home – for the next week at least

We have arrived! After two long flights and a layover in Frankfurt we have finally touched down at our hotel in Accra, Ghana. It is dark outside now, but it was really neat to see the German countryside and the African deserts we flew over earlier. Definitely one of those times you hope for a […]

Arrival in Lagos

We arrived in Lagos yesterday morning, and after a delayed start set off on the journey in a police convoy to Ogbomoosho. We were fortunate to have some incredible drivers as we wound our way through the traffic, a very memorable journey! As we got closer to Ogbomosho, there were hundreds of people for miles lining the road in the dark cheering and waving as our convoy snaked past. There is a lot of excitement here for the crusade there are posters evrywhere we look! Due to the delay we arrived in Ogbomosho at about 9pm, just time for a quick meal, and find our beds, spiders but our resident spider is missing a leg so we should be fine!

We are here!!!

We are here…praise the Lord! Mostly everyone who was coming with us from the western side of the earth has arrived safely in Nigeria. Mr. Russell has been doing a great job keeping everyone together and getting us where we need to be. My wife and I had the chance to meet Ms. Carrie and Amanda the winners of the contest from Canada and they are awesome. It is very hot here but CFAN has taken very good care of us and things are moving along smoothly. I can feel the excitement in the air, even though most of us have just flown into the city we are excited to see what our Father is going to do this week in Ogbomosho.
