Returning to the States for the Summer (by Suzanne)

[Tatum & Steve: These are the Ties that bind]

Tatum is our wonderful "Ghana" friend who helped with Youth Group this year, is or has already left, and I gave her a tie as a going away present.

As our thoughts turn to going from the Black Star of Africa to the Lone Star of Texas, we naturally have been thinking about what will be different, what we’re most looking forward to, and what we’ll miss about Ghana. In David Letterman fashion, we decided to make some lists:

Top 10 Things We’re Looking Forward to This Summer in The States:
10. Potato and tortilla chips
9. Buying NEW ready-to-wear clothes and shoes
8. Malls and Wal-Mart (believe it or not!)
7. Glen Lake Camp
6. National Public Radio
5. Manga books and book stores
4. Movies theatres
3. Fast internet (that works most, or even all, of the time!)
2. Drinking water straight from the tap

And the number one thing we’re looking forward to in the States:
1. Family and Friends!

More lists:
5 Things We WON’T Miss About Africa:
5. “Obruni!”
4. Malaria mosquitoes
3. Sweating 24/7
2. Not being “one bite away” from food poisoning
1. Light-outs

But, that seems a little harsh. Here’s one last list:

Five Things We WILL Miss About Ghana:
5. “Obruni!”
4. Asbury-Dunwell and Elim churches
3. Mangos, Greeb Bananas, Papayas and Pineapple (the best you’ve ever tasted)
2. Food prepared from scratch, will all fresh ingredients, all the time
1. Friends!
