David and Carol Christensen are planning their next mission trip to Ghana. Below are the details.
Proposed 2014 Mission Trip to Ghana
The Following Are Approximate Costs for the Following Itineraries
Depart Boston, Miami, New York, or Toronto –Tuesday, May 27. 2014. Transfer in Heathrow, London, England for 7 hour flight to Accra, Ghana, West Africa. Arrive at Accra, the next evening and immediately depart for Ho.
This trip presupposes a group of not less than six, nor more than twelve (First come, first served)
During our Ghana stay, we will primarily be housed at the Kekeli Hotel, the Social Center of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in the city of Ho. Clean and comfortable, with air-conditioning, each room will be for two guests and will have an in-room bathroom, cold water shower, and sink. Bottled drinking water will be available for in-room use. Meals will be prepared and served in the dining room of the hotel and will feature a mixture of Ghanaian and continental food, sensitive to our dietary needs. Three meals a day are included in the cost. All fees, tips, lodging and ground travel as well as admissions are covered. This includes 12 days in Ghana, departing June 10 and arriving back June 11, 2014
Lodging for the trip to Cape Coast-Elmina area is still in the process of being settled.
The Ghana experience will include a Worship opportunity in a village in the region of Ho each Sunday. We will join the people of the villages and communities of the Volta Region. All participants on the trip will participate in age/skill appropriate mission projects to include such things as physical labor at a work site, teaching in a school in the Ho district, work in a medical clinic, presence in a hospital, or with the EP Church. During the time in Ghana, we will try to arrange daily cultural presentations to arts, dance, drum, song, fabric making, culture, and/or history.
We will make a four-hour trek to Cape Coast area where we will visit a Slave Fort and Kakum National Park which has a canopy walk over the rainforest.
Afternoons will be reserved for periods of rest and relaxation or free time for exploring the city and market of Ho and perhaps a visit to Tafi Monkey Sanctuary, Wili Waterfall or Keta Sea Defense.
Pastor David reserves the right to determine the mix of the group.
