This year's All-Church Retreat was a great success! Kabiye Christians from all over the region descended on the village of Soumdina Po Wayi for 2 days of worship, teaching, and fellowship. We were blessed by their enthusiasm and passion, and we thank God that He is building up His kingdom among the Kabiye!

April The Chef

My kitchen skills are improving and I'm gaining confidence as the chef for our family. Yes, those are elephants on the top of my chicken potpie. Just to give you a little idea what went into this's the way it works: First, have houseworker make pie crusts. Secondly, cook entire chicken, wait for it to cook, wait for it to cool, pull the chicken off the bones and cut into bite sized pieces. Next, follow recipe from cookbook (I actually bought frozen peas and carrots in Ghana) - oh but wait, you can use the water that you boiled the chicken in for the can of chicken broth the recipe calls for so don't throw out the water when the chicken is done. In fact, put the rest of the "chicken water" in containers and freeze it for future recipes. After all that's done and you're sweating because the oven and the stove have completely taken over any cool air in your kitchen (remember, no AC in the kitchen...I'm sure some of you remember days like these), you wait for your masterpiece to become golden in color. Then you grab your bottles of pop, bottle opener, and enjoy a yummy dinner with your family.
