Our trip to Sunyani

A couple of weeks ago we went to Sunyani for the first time to do apt. inspections.  Sunyani is about a 2 ½ hour drive.  The drive was very nice.  It is kind of in the mountains.  We drove through a lot of forest areas, the road was good and there was very little traffic.  The town is very clean.  They make an effort to keep the trash picked up.  There are no tro tros there probably because there aren’t enough people to make it worth their while.  They have market two days a week so there isn’t as many street vendors on the other days.  There are 4 sisters and 8 elders there.  We did the inspections and ended up helping move 2 of the elders from one apt. to another.  The apt. coordinator met us up there and helped finish up.  I use the word “we” loosely because I didn’t do anything.  I am becoming lazy because the Ghanaian people won’t let us do anything.   They pack our bags and books, open doors and gates and lift us out of the gutters when Elder Reiss gets a little too close and drops a wheel in (that only happened once).  So with the moving, the young man that was helping kept trying to get Elder Reiss to sit down.  Well, he would have none of that so he was able to load stuff, but I just sat and watched.  It was an extremely warm day, but a good day.
