Gorgeous Ghana

So after a 4 day vacation in Ghana I am feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. There was 11 of us total; 6 from USA, 1 Canadian, 1 Norwegian, 1 Swedish, and 2 Ghanaians. Getting to Ghana was a bit of an adventure in itself but after 3 breakdowns, 4 cars, and 2 immigration processes we made it.

First was the Canopy walkway. One of 4 in the entire world.

Next we went to Elmina Castle located in Cape Coast. This castle was used as a slave castle for many years and shows another period of darkness in this sinful world. Even though the information was heavy God graced us with a beautiful sunset to assure us that he is in control.

Next we went to Boti falls where we did some hiking which was SOOO great!

and then of course we went to the falls themselves. (ignore the signs.. hehe)

At the end of the trip we were talking about what our favorite part of the trip was. I thought back to the Canopy walk, the castle at sunset, the Crocodile Hostel (Hans), Boti falls. But then I realized that none of those compared to what truly ended up being my favorite part of this trip and that was getting to know these 11 people more intimately. We went through different ups and downs throughout the trip but God unified us more than I could have ever imagined. The conversations, laughs, and prayers shared throughout this trip will be with me forever. God was definitely glorified in and through this trip.
