So early starts seem to be the norm. In actual fact they start church services as early as 7:00am and finish around 10:30am. We were given the opportunity to perform and preach at the Assembly’s of God church in Lome. We were up and ready by 6am, had breakfast but the bus was late in arriving to pick us up.
Our performance was without a doubt the best. As the team performed the audience responded with claps and shouts of appreciation. Geoff preached and after the service the Pastor invited the whole team to his office to meet him. Since we were up so early, the team leaders decided that we would have lunch in town before heading back to the base. After getting back to the base most of the team took naps and relaxed for the rest of the day.
