Vaughn Going Away Party

We gathered in Ouidah, Benin at Casa del Papa this past Monday. We went there to spend some special times of fun, prayer and fellowship with some of our favorite missionary colleagues in West Africa. Upon our arrival they told us they had titled our week VGAP and that this time would be spent as our going away party (click here for another VGAP account). They made the time very special. They were intentional about blessing our family and we came away very BLESSED!
Thanks to all of you from Togo who made the very long trip...we were so encouraged by your prayers and words of blessing.
Our kids loved every minute with all of their missionary kid friends. They will be talking about these memories for a long time!

This looks like a wonderful time! I wish we could have been there to bless you. You are truly to be honored for your love and commitment to God, the Aja people, and your family. We look forward to seeing you when you come back in this direction. Any timeline yet?
