Back in America

November 21st, 2014 by Dennis Salter

I returned from Ghana to America on November 20th.  I arrived in Chicago and stayed overnight with family.  I just arrived back in Wisconsin this evening.  I have not come home.  Perhaps I have returned to America, but it is not home to me.  As the saying goes “home is where the heart is”.  My heart is with the forgotten of the earth such as the dear people of Ghana, the richest people I know.  Where my heart is, that is my home.  It is my prayer that I will serve the developing world well, full time, in these days.  This service learning experience has been a launching pad and a strategic time in my life.  By the grace of God, I will reach for the prize set before me and I will continue to serve as a medical professional to “the least of these” with my Diploma in International Medicine and Public Health.
