our old office, almost ready to go
As you know we have been enjoying living in Alema Court with our office next door. We knew it was a temporary fix, as they were working on the Mission Home and Office in Tesano. Well they are have some troubles there, just slow going and the city is requiring the Church to put in another entrance/exit which may or may not happen on a busy street with the compound surrounded by other buildings. The builders are not going forward and the area office (who own the 2 apartments in Alema Court) are having a few more missionary couples come. So it is time for us to go! Luckily for us there is a house available 2 doors from where President Hill lives. It is a big house where the Area Presidency used to live, before they built apartments for them at the Temple Site. So we have moved to #3 Coco Palms, we have the office downstairs on the main floor and our rooms are upstairs. It was hard to move and have our office in an uproar and not be able to connect to the internet for a week. We had brand new office missionaries that could not drive, and one of our AP's is leaving and his head is in the clouds and he goes around singing. Elder Wall and I packed everything, see above, and carefully labeled all of the boxes. Problem was the movers who were hired to do the actual moving did not know how to read and they were a little rough on the furniture. You know you have moved, however this was not even Ghana Good !!!!
This is the front door of our new office and house, it is very nice, we even have a little fenced in yard. There are about 30 houses in this compound, we do have guards to open and close the gates. They always have different guards here, whereas at the other place, we knew all 7 of the guards and gardeners.
Below is a picture of when we were moving in. Our office area is almost twice as big. When they were wiring it for the computers and taking the wire along the ceiling, the technicians were risking their lives, as the ladder was too short for the 12 feet they had to reach and they tied it together with wire!
This is taken from the top of the stair going to our bedroom. It is all organized and the internet is working and looks very nice now. I will have to take another picture.
