The Royal Senchi on the Volta River
Monday, October 20, 2014
We are stopping at Blue Sky to have some juice, We just delivered a stove to Adoajyiri, to the Berret's Apartment, the Lathams (pink and red shirt) came down from Asamankese to help some missionaries with a water pump problem. So after we put in the stove with an oven ( Sister Berret makes awesome banana muffins) we had to go get a nice cold juice before we went back to Accra.
The young woman with the baby was at another table and just wanted to be in the picture. Sister Berret is in yellow and Elder Berret is sitting on the bench next to me, Terry is taking the picture.
On our Saturday P-Day we went up to Senchi,
on the way we stopped, because there were about 30 Baboons on the side of the road. This guy is saying where is my banana. We did not have any, on the way back we bought some bananas, and the baboons were not there. We drove up next to the Volta river, it is a very beautiful area. They have
little fishing villages along the river. The river isvery wide and goes from the top of Ghana, down the eastern side into the Atlantic Ocean.
This is a picture of the Ensign University, they are in their 1st semester with 24 students, they are still working on it, they were putting some of the pavement in (yes pavement) and we could not go in.

Terry with Joseph. Joseph is a guard at the other Mission, Ghana Accra Mission Home, and he also fumigates our missionary apartments and cleans the inside of our mission poly tanks. He is a hard worker, he has a wife and 3 cute children to support, and the labors here are paid very little.
side of the road and they fixed it for us.
On the way home that day a cart overturned in front of us and it had to be cleaned up before we could move, Now you know why it sometimes takes us 1 or 2 hours to get to a chapel that is maybe 5-10 miles in actual distance.
Just a word about Ebola they are being very careful in Ghana, We had an Elder sick with Malaria ( yes we have about a 1/3 of our elders who do not take Doxy everyday, not because we don't furnish the Doxy and remind them all the time, because we do, just because they are 19,20 and think they are invincible) and we had to take him to the hospital because he could not keep his Medicine down and was becoming dehydrated. When he was in the hospital he had a bloody nose (dehydrated!) and they had to report it and give him a blood test. He was negative and now he is better and back out teaching. I just wanted you to know that they are being very careful here and investigating anything.
