First Day Adjustments and Meeting the Team

Good Evening from Accra,  we arrived last night at about 8:30.  All of the flights were great, all of our luggage got here safely and the house we are staying in is very nice.  As a side note, if you haven't ever flown on KLM and get a chance to- take it!  They really know how to take care of passengers and the food was pretty good.  This morning we met for lunch with the Ghanian HCJB missionaries and the one intern who had already arrived.  We ate at a Turkish restaurant and it was wonderful- we are always excited to try new food and Joe even took a dare to eat a hot pepper, wish we had gotten a picture of that. 
Fortunately for us, HCJB has missionaries here in Accra working with Radio ministries.  The leaders of the team grew up as missionaries in African countries and are a wealth of information.  The team also includes a family from the UK and a guy from the states, but we will fill you in on them later (i.e., when I get a chance to get pictures of them.)  Joe and I just have to go where they tell us to when they tell us to and don't have to worry about planning much which is a huge switch from our normal lives-  it is such a blessing.  
Tonight we met the rest of the team, except for one who just flew in.  There are 9 interns plus the 2 sets of families and single guy from Ghana,  Dr. Steve and Dorothy from Quito, our boss Sheila who is the Vice President of Health Care from HCJB Global and the 4 of us.  We had a pancake supper tonight and just got acquainted.
