Within one day of being in Italy Jacob announced that he could spend the rest of his life here. While I don’t doubt that he loves it, I wonder if it could partially be the change of scene from Ghana, human development: low to… Rome. From raw poverty to polished sophistication  From aggressive sales pitches […]

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ Romans 1:16 Ghanaians live this scripture and it’s inspiring. And joyful.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stay in a hippie village overlooking the sea in a community of Rastafarians? You have? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s called Rising Phoenix Magic Beach Resort and it’s run by a man who renamed himself Phoenix. A short, balding man with knowing blue eyes and […]

Last night, I went to hear the President speak about sports at the football stadium a short taxi ride away. That’s what I was told, anyway, by a security guard who walked me to the gym and proceded to sit and, in a friendly manner, follow me around while I worked out on different machines. […]

When coming to Ghana, I really didn’t know what to expect. I tried to research it, but the information I found wasn’t adequate. I knew I’d have to go myself in order to get a frame of reference from my own perspective. Would it be as impoverished as parts of India? Would it be developed? […]
