Children at a home where Tiffany delivered food; their family is sponsored by Americans who donate money each month so that this family can always have food.

Delivering food to a family. Tiffany and the team prayed for each family "Ghana style" which means that everyone prays out loud for specific prayer requests.

Delivering food to another family. Most of the families that they delivered food to were the homes of single mothers where the fathers either abandoned them or left for work and never came back.

On the way to a sponsor's home to deliver food; if a family was not home while they made the delivery, they would still pray blessings over the home. Many of these areas are known as voo-doo strongholds.

Exhausted after the work of visiting orphanages, delivering food and dedicating the school. It was worth it though for God’s glory to help His children.

Only 11 days in Ghana, but a lot of work was accomplished. Tiffany is already looking toward the future and when she can serve there again, but hopefully next time it will be at least 1 month. May the Lord continue to bless the Feeding The Orphans ministry so that these children and families can have the security of knowing they will be provided for.

    Tiffany’s trip sounds fascinating. Now I’ll have to look up Feeding the Orphans to understand how they carry out their mission. What a great eye-opening experience!

    • Nice to hear from you, Karen! Yes, she had a great trip, seeing a new part of the world and getting to know firsthand the lives of the Ghanaian people. Definitely check out Feeding the Orphans! We have been friends with the O’Leary’s (the family that started that ministry) for several years. Tiffany and Sydney are good friends from church.
