We spent the last month traveling 17,434 miles to Africa and back, and now our daily walk to the office is about forty feet. Then as I think about these two weeks, I realize that the adventures have still ...

It was an inauspicious beginning for the week: only three students showed up for class on Monday. As I taught, I battled a bit of discouragement. But God had his own plans. The following day, we had nine attending and maintained that number through the remainder of the class. It turned out that Monday was a national holiday in Ghana Republic Day and we had not been aware...
