Last Committee Meeting Before Travel

Ghana CommitteeIn our last meeting before Jim Arant and I travel to Ghana, our committee met to discuss the details of our exploratory trip.  Our goal is to determine the specific needs of the users of the technology center as well as visit existing centers to learn from their experiences.  We will also investigate local power sources, Internet availability and regional computer vendors.

The committee also discussed upcoming fundraisers and our current contributions (thanks to all who have already donated!).

Preparing for Travel

Jim Arant and I are preparing for our scout trip to Ghana. We’ve had all of our vaccinations (now I know how a pin cushion feels) and are filling our bags with travel items. We leave for Ghana on Friday, December 4th. Our mission is to visit the village of Abesewa, where the technology center is being built, and determine the needs of the community. We will also visit other rural technology centers and meet with potential computer vendors.

Jim and I are very excited to represent the Orangeburg district of the United Methodist Church of South Carolina. The opportunity of spreading God’s love to those less fortunate is an amazing mission that we are honored to undertake. Keep us in your prayers as we prepare for this awesome journey.

Welcome To Our Web Site

In September of 2014, the United Methodist Conference, Orangeburg District, convened its first meeting of the committee that would plan, fund and build a technology center in the village of Abesewa in Ghana.  The committee is made up of pastors, parishioners and conference staff who have interests and talents in spreading God’s love through technology and education to this tiny village in Ghana.  It’s a huge undertaking that involves many people, on both sides of the Atlantic.

We’ve developed this web site share the news of this mission and to keep all who are interested updated on our progress.  We hope you will find this site useful and informative.  We also hope you will be moved to help us in our mission through your time, talents, gifts or service.  To contact us, just click here and complete the form.  You can donate to the project, by clicking here.

Please keep us in your prayers as we share God’s love with our brothers in Christ in Ghana.
