“If you want to hear God laugh, tell him your plans”, is a favorite saying of Joan Tucker. This is a story about two people with great plans for an orphan living in Northern Ghana who needed considerable medical treatment. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Saviour would face many hardships in the first few years of his life including being abandoned in the African bush at the age of three. Several days later, he was rescued and taken to the Nazareth Home for God’s Children. Then Momma Joan came along and helped change his life forever. From the early days of getting him accepted by the hospital in the United States and bringing him into their home the first time; Joan and Bill were repeatedly reminded that, while some things are done in Africa time, most are done in God’s time.

This is not a story of how Joan and Bill made his life better. It is about a little boy who is so courageous and determined to make the most out of the opportunity they have offered him. Saviour, for his part, would face the challenges of recovery from many surgeries and adjusting to all the new things America offered with his incredible smile and a never give up attitude. Over the next few years many plans were made to ensure him the best opportunity to not only walk, but to lead a happy and productive life. This book will tell you about all the times Joan, Bill and Saviour heard God’s laughter.
