Back to Ghana and Trinity Theological Seminary

Asomdwoe nka wo—peace be with you! We started the day with a delicious egg sandwich and loaded onto the bus headed for Trinity Theological Seminary in Legon, Ghana. We were welcomed straight off the bus and given a tour of the 70+ acre campus. We moved into a classroom to learn simple words/phrases that would help convey our appreciation to our hosts.

We attended two lectures led by Very Rev. Prof. J. Kwabena Asamoah-Gyadu, President of Trinity Theological Seminary, and Rev. Prof. David N. A. Kpobi. We learned more about Christianity in Africa; the President of the Seminary described it as “the heartland of the faith.” We were all well fed by the (delicious) food and the exceptional hospitality and welcome we received while on campus.

After our time at the seminary was over, we explored more of Accra. We arrived at our hotel and learned more about Ghanaian fashion and dress while getting fitted and measured for custom handmade dresses and shirts by fine Ghanaian mother-daughter seamstresses. After dinner, we took a stroll down the street, and we could see some nightlife and experience a nice breeze. Nyame nhyira wo—God bless you!
