I took part in a church plant project through the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I lived in a apartment style housing and I worked out in a local village, Apatrapa, which is a part of Kumasi. Being among the people of Apatrapa and working with Ghanaian seminary students was the best part. If you do go to Ghana, get in among the people. They are so friendly and open! They are very impressed at white people who dress like they do, try to speak a little of their tribal language (they will teach you), and sit on the floor of their homes with them. They like to give you gifts, but be cautious of giving them gifts, you will be mobbed!!! The children will mob you as you walk through the village streets, but they just want you to touch them and say hi! Take good hiking boots and be prepared to walk through anything!!!! I would not let my feet be uncovered, you will have to walk through raw sewage! The smells you get used to, the people are amazing! I would highly recommend a visit to Kumasi, just ask anyone where Apatrapa is, they will all know and be glad to take you. Be prepared to feel like a movie star!
