When did you serve?

What were some favorite foods?

What was a funny experience?
- We were teaching a family in their home and their four year-old son made a loud noise in the kitchen. We went in there to discover he had trapped himself on top of the refrigerator and knocked some things down. (Clark)
What was a crazy experience?
- A drunk man asked us to take him to the church building one night. We had to walk along a busy road for a mile or two to get there. He couldn’t keep his balance well enough to stay out of the street. Eventually he collapsed beneath a tree and we called 911. (Clark)
What was a spiritual experience?
- Isaac Adu’s baptism was special. When this sweet elderly man came up out of the water, he looked at everyone and, with a thick Ghanaian accent, said something like, “I never knew Jesus Christ had His own church on the earth. Thank you.” There was a powerful feeling there. (Clark)
