The zone leaders meet the first Thursday every month with the mission president to review the past month and discuss goals for the coming month. The Ghana missions are very good at adding growth to the church with each one having about 100 baptisms each month. Some of the zone leaders are "enjoying" a Ghanaian meal at the area office cafeteria.
We stayed 3 nights are the empty couples house in Ho. We stayed with the Paces and took turns providing meals. Some very good eating took place.
There was some lush foliage along the way to the missionary apartment in Hohoe along with some very bumpy roads.
We attended the Kente festival which is centered around the brightly woven cloth call "kente" cloth.
Elder Graham Nash of the Area Presidency and his wife had seats of honour. The white man sitting beside them is an chief because took great efforts to promote the Kente. He is a member of the church from Utah. Athough very colourful, there seemed to be very little action and any drumming or dancing that did take place was difficult to see because all the seats were level with field making it hard to observe anything occuring on the other side of the field.
Before leaving Ho we picked up a missionary who had finished his mission and needed to be in Accra to catch a flight back to his home in Nigeria. He phoned ahead and members turned up in Tsito, a town along the way, to say goodbye to him. He had previously served a number of months in Tsito. The man in the foreground is a member of the branch presidency and he had all the other well wishers loaded in his pick up truck.
This took place September 12 which is Meg's birthday. She was surprised with a flaming piece of bithday cake and all the waiters singing Happy Birthday. Early that afternoon had a birthday lunch at a place called Pinocchios. Two good meals in one day!
Meg had some Ghanaian clothes made and the seamstress made some matching ties.
