'Football' drills with my boys for P.E class ⚽️ #ivhqghana
We cannot meet every need in the world but when a need is brought to us we feel like we must meet it // In math class today we learned ordinal vs. Cardinal numbers. The students are all so excited to learn but it was a challenge to keep them in their seats and not fighting over pencils ! What should be on next weeks agenda ? #ivhqghana #IVHQ
Love these kiddos even though they drive me crazy sometimes #ivhq #ghana
And they keep coming! The day the #ivhqghana Purple program donated all the mase we harvested on the farm to the orphanage at the Olive program

Spending the past two weeks reminiscing about Ghana with everyone definitely has me missing these kiddies more than ever. #ivhq #ivhqghana #amber #virginkids #missthem #ghana
Everyday I miss these children more and more. #Ghana #ivhq #ivhqghana #blessedbrightfuture
Quick Video update for my friends at home, before I leave for the rural parts tomorrow. Started off my time here trying to figure out how tro-tro's worked, discovering the intensity of the African markets, and taking a quick drum lesson from our friend David before Evans took us to see the Ocean. I'm loving Accra! #Ivhq #Ghana #DavidwiththeRemix #futurereggaedrummer #americansabroad
I thought I was taking this trip to spend time with children who needed my help, but it turns out they've helped me more than I could have ever imagined. I'm so thankful for all who helped make this opportunity possible for me and the amazing people who have truly changed my life and my perspective on everything. #Ghana #IVHQ
Love these losers. #ghana #volunteers #ivhqghana #ivhq #blessedbrightfuture
