Since September we have had busy days helping over 850 PEF students, and working with them is sheer delight. Having been here 15 months, we've gotten to know so many of them and watched them diligently pay back their loans with sometimes small monthly payments, to larger amounts, depending on circumstances. Typical of a parting comment is, "I am so much grateful. I want to pay back this money so another student can have the same happiness." Pretty rewarding. Our office work can be tiring - after retirement we have jumped right back into the work place. However, we manage to break up the stress with visits/outings that give us some great variety. We've grown to really love Ghana.
