Hello All,

*I updated this on May 7, 2006 to reflect some changes in our address and wish list*

Thanks for all your responses to our last update. We were just getting jealous of our colleagues here who are receiving letters and packages on a weekly basis. So, please forgive us for being so blunt about our request. But when you're in a strange place eating strange food and using an even stranger toilet than you're used to, hearing from some familiar people really helps to get you through. Especially when you're spending a substantial length of time using the strange toilet, if you get my drift...

Also we realize now that not everyone knows our address here. Sorry about that. Here you go:

Letters:
Chris and Sayward Fehrman, PCV
General Delivery
c/o Nkwanta Postmaster
Nkwanta, V/R, Ghana
West Africa

Packages:
Chris and Sayward Fehrman, PCV
c/o Peace Corps Ghana
P.O. Box 5796
Accra North, Ghana
West Africa

*Please be advised that... the mail system here is actually pretty decent so the precautions that we stated earlier are not really necessary. Although it was fun to read all the Bible verses about smiting, punishing sinners, adn reigning hell and brimstone on anyone in the postal service who even thought about tampering with our letters/packages.


*Updated Wish List:
- Gatorade
- Velveeta
- Wall Hangings (especially posters, calendars, maps - get creative, your own artwork!)
- Tortillas


Ok, I think that's pretty good for now. We may add more later! And Christmas is just around the corner!

Medaasi! (I bow before you aka thanks so much!)

say & Chris

PS - After receiving a few packages from kind friends and family a few more tips: Shipping is extremely expensive, especially through FedEx. USPS is probably the most reasonable and it is still around $5/lb. So don't worry about sending too much of anything. You guys are great just for thinking of us!

Grandma & Grandpa F say Hi from Colorado!!
We have just arrived in CO on our way to AZ. We've been reading about your travels via hardcopy from Phil and Mari & now online. Must be quite a change from living in the USA. We are very spoiled here. We will try to send some goodies soon. Love, G'ma & G'pa. & Aunt Denys & Uncle Ed & Eddie too!!

Stay safe and healthy. We are praying for you.
