We have arrived!

Hi all,
Just a quick note to let you know that we have arrived in Ghana.  The flights were good, just tiring and I didn't sleep well last night so hopefully tonight will be better.
Our apartment is nice - the bed a little firm, but we will get used to it.
Kim -- Pres. Kradofer just is in our office to meet us, right now as I am writing this.  (He was Kimberley's mission president in Arizona and we are now working with him).
Ghana kind of seems like the other parts of Africa that we have been in.
Mom -- we have already met someone from Nigeria that remembers you well.  I cannot remember the person you said you wanted us to look for if we got the chance.  Write and tell me.   Anyway, we met Charles Ajeigbe who was a young missionary in Lagos.   He is now the head of a dept. here (computers, phones, etc. - I think).  He is a very nice man.
It is hot (but not too hot) and humid.   We went and exchanged money this morning and then to the grocery stores with another couple.  We live just below the Area doctor and his wife so we should be well taken care of if we have an issues.
Must run.  There is a potluck dinner with the couples (for us) tonight.  There are 8 couples plus the area presidency.   Haven't had a chance to say hello to Elder Dube yet - may see him just now as we head down from our office.
Love you,  Mom and dad/Nancy & Jim

Welcome "Home"!? ; ) Glad you had a successful trip. Looking forward to reading your updates. So exciting to see that you are well on your way to another treasured mission. You two are the best. We are sure the Lord is well pleased with your decision.
