Gramps and Gran in Ankamu.

stored in: Life and tagged:

I haven’t said anything about it on here, mostly because I assume that most readers of this humble little blog would already be aware, but…last month my parents paid us a 10-day visit! It had been 8 years since their last visit to Ghana {during our first term at the Lighthouse Children’s Home}, so it was about time they hopped on that plane and did some traveling. ;)

Aren’t they cute? :)


Believe it or not, the little town of Ankamu is not the most happening place around, and at times we wonder how we will keep visitors entertained/busy. So, besides spending a night & day at the fabulous KO-SA Beach {that is where the above picture was taken}, here’s a glimpse of what we did:

Re-painted Elliot’s room. Same colors, just better paint.


Spent an afternoon doing an art project and sharing toffee with these sweet kids. They live just down the road from us, at Mephibosheth {Thanks, Cheryl for leaving your leftovers behind! They really enjoyed it.}


pamela Pamela is such a gem.

mephib Love this!

Relaxed in the local pool. {Thanks for the new tube, Miss Mady!}


Met the neighbors…


…and gave them a Sudoku lesson. ;)


There was a Bible Club one afternoon, various cooking/baking projects {peanut butter eggs!!}, visits to the farm, and chats with other missionary friends. I think one of my favorite things, though, was the way Elliot could lead Grandpa all around, showing him this and that. It was so cute!

It was definitely great to have Grandpa and Grandma here, and after they left, we finally got around to doing this in Elliot’s newly repainted room:

    Good job, hostess! I know you made them comfortable and kept the coffee coming. Glad you could spend time & relax with them. Love the Mephibosheth pictures.

      Unfortunately my dear mother hasn’t acquired a very strong desire for coffee, but Dad was happy to oblige. Hope you’re enjoying your time with Jon’s parents!
