Prayer works. My dad is my hero. For sure. He walked my passport through the Ghana Embassy and like a champ make it all happen. Talking smoothly like a McGee he befriended the Ghana consulate and against all odds I now have a passport with a visa coming my way in the mail to be delivered 6 hours before my flight. So that is the last prayer request.
Ps. Tom Fogarty recovered and we are still friends.
