The end of this “on the field” term is quickly coming to a close as our departure for furlough approaches. This was our fifth term in Africa and covered one year in Togo and 18 months in Rwanda. We put the “Goodbye Togo 2008 – Crowson Photo Album” together to give you a glimpse of our last year in West Africa and the special friendships and times that we shared there. I’m currently working on a “Hello Rwanda 2009 – Crowson Photo Album” which I hope to post sometime this coming week!
You can click this link to download the “Goodbye Togo 2008 – Crowson Photo Album” in pdf format. It’s almost 18mb, so make sure you have a good internet connection. Also, it’s best displayed in Adobe Acrobat 8 or higher viewing two pages at a time side by side. Enjoy:)
Here’s an excerpt from the cover page of the photo album:
Our family moved to Benin, West Africa in 1998 and worked among the Aja for three and a half years. In 2002 we transitioned to Togo, the country just west of Benin and continued to minister to the Aja and began a ministry among the Watchi. Our years in West Africa were filled with challenges, victories, hardships as well as great times of joy as we experienced the power of God changing lives.
We love West Africa, it’s people, diverse cultures, tropical fruit, beautiful beaches, lively markets and at times even the heat! There will always be a special place in our hearts for this part of God’s beautiful world.
