Emily's Stories from Ghana

*I am $6000 away from my $20,000 goal for my mission’s trip. I you have not has a chance to donate please prayerfully consider doing so. To make a donation please click the donate button at the top of this page and it will link you to my donation page.

Right now I am taking a break from typing a packing/shopping list for my BIG trip. I am getting more and more excited about going to Ghana! This past Saturday I was invited to a Ghanaian BBQ that was put on by The Church of the Pentecost Oakville Assembly. This is the church that my friend Mary and her family attend. I was so much fun! I got to dance Azonto and eat so Ghanaian food (which I missed so much!). Although my Azonto skills were a bit rusty, I think I did pretty well. I will have lots of time to improve while I am in Ghana.

Here is a picture of me dancing Azonto in the market on my first day in Ghana last summer:


This is some of the students at His Majesty’s Christian School dancing Azonto at the school one morning:


These Ghanian’s sure love to dance!

When I get better at Azonto I will get someone to take a video and I will share it on here with all of you. Perhaps after that you will see me and my Azonto skills on Canada’s Got Talent!


1 Peter 4:10
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
