Tuesday Training

I am checked in my hotel in Accra (visualize Motel 6 with large bed and poor lighting).  Training with 8 pastor-leaders in the Volta region went well.  Our focus is SUFFERING.  From numerous Bible passages, we saw there are four causes of suffering:  Sin, discipline training from God, spiritual warfare and "unexplained" suffering.  1 Peter 4:19 is always the right way to respond to suffering.  As training concluded, Vincent said, "I always thought suffering was because my parents or I had done something to anger God."  Several said, "This training is so practical, we can use it to help others."

Your prayers are a gift.  I adjusted well to the time zone (Accra is 6 hours ahead of MN); my stomach has been fine (eating cooked chicken and avoiding vegetables); we have been safe in driving; and the training seems useful.  Two more days and I can begin the trip home.  Ah, what a sweet word.

Good night from Accra, Ghana.
