Week Eight

The contents of this website are mine personally and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.

I am well into the training program with about a month left until I am recognized as a Peace Corps volunteer and not a trainee. The most difficult portion is ahead for me, the continuation of language training and the final language proficiency examination. I will interviewed by a native speaker and respond at an intermediate level of proficiency. It is difficult comparing my progress to the young trainees that just seem to have the memory to make things stick. This is all part of the deal and I intend to do my best.

I am visiting my expected assignment location in the Region of Brong Ahafo, almost in the center of the country. I will be near a large market city and have come here to find an inter net cafe. Once I get permanently to my new home, I will be able to use this site more frequently to access the internet. No internet in my school or the small village where I will live for the next two years.

I am still comfortable with my decision and most grateful for my children who I love and trust to take care of themselves as well as each other even while I am gone.

I invite you to share this blogg site with others.

Thanks again for your interest in what I am doing in Ghana.
