"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
We're sitting in the international terminal at Heathrow, about 2 hours away from getting on our plane to Chicago. Our apologies to anyone who thought we might still be wandering around in the Volta Region. Internet in Mallam was incredibly slow, so all we had time to do was send quick emails to the boys.
Our trip out East was incredible. You can see one picture below of the two of us at the waterfalls at Wli ... one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The lodge we stayed at was a beautiful little complex that had only four rooms and a huge gazebo with the most amazing views of the mountains. Thursday morning, we took a 45 -minute walk to the waterfalls through the rainforest. We could have stayed there all day, but we had to get back to Accra. Robin says the next time she comes she's staying at Wli for a month!
I'll post more later ... and more photos from the last two weeks. I'm incredibly excited to see the boys again, and it will be good to be home ... but it was also difficult to say goodbye. It was an incredible six weeks, and I think it will take quite a while to sort through it all.

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
