Takordi, Ghana to Lome, Togo

11 Day Itinerary with 3 Country Visits: Ghana, Benin & Togo

November 27 – December 7, 2010

Hosting Churches and Ministries: TBA

About this Itinerary: We begin in Ghana which is known for their bond with America. Ghana has some very interesting slave forts for the African Diaspora. You can also do a safari out to Mole National Park. There is a strong Christian influence taking hold in Ghana. There are two ports of call in Ghana – Takordi and Tema. Based on need, we may change which port of call is used. We get to visit the small country of Benin which has historically never had much assistance from the Church. From this small airport some may have an opportunity to fly into Niger to visit new ministries there that have taken root. We are then off to Lome, Togo. Togo is home to wildlife reserves, fantastic fishing, and a unique West African culture. There are numerous small ministries and Business as Mission entities in Togo that are quite interesting.
