Crazy Drivers

 Driving in Ghana is crazy. I’m talking dirt roads going 70 mph. (I have seen the speedometer.) The police do not enforce driving laws so speed bumps are everywhere, especially the villages. The roads have no lanes so people tend to just drive wherever they want – even directly at oncoming traffic on the wrong side of the road. Traffic in Accra is horrible. We are in Mampong, which is about 30 miles outside of Accra and it took us 2 hours to arrive in downtown Accra this morning. Also, everyone drives extremely close to other cars. We were even in a slight fender bender today, but luckily we were moving slowly in stop and go traffic. The trips are very stressful for me, because we come very close to death frequently.  Please, please pray for safe travels tomorrow on our 12 hour journey.
