More Roof Pictures!




The carpenters have finished building the rafters for the roof. The masons are busy smoothing the cement walls. The big decisions today are choosing the roof color and the wall color for the school. Mr. Sam wants one color and Sarah another. I’m staying out of this one. I told them that they had to come to an agreement.

Mr. Sam, Sarah, Blodge, Amy & I all went to Accra to purchase the roof. Mr. Sam won on the color (only because they didn’t offer the color Sarah wanted). Everyone is working hard to complete the school. We are getting excited as we see it coming closer and closer to being finished. Gratitude is the emotion that my heart is feeling at this moment.

In 2010, my daughter, Molly and I went to Ghana. We fell in love with Mr. Sam, Sarah and all the kids at the Achiase Children's Home. One day while we were cooking dinner by the fire, I asked Sara, “What is your dream? If you had a magic wand and could create your dream, what would it be?” She jumped up and took my hand and said “Mama J, come with me.” We walked on the narrow paths through the jungle and eventually came to an opening in a neighboring village. She said “that is my dream”. When I looked up, I saw a beautiful school. We held hands as we stood together realizing what this conversation could mean. After I returned home, I spent a lot of time thinking and praying about it. Finally, I realized, “We can do this! We can build a school.” We have been raising funds and with the help of family and friends, we have raised the money and I will be heading back to Ghana with several others to make it happen. Feel free to join us on this adventure as we go along.
