Chapels in Ghana, Eastern Region

This is the new OYOKO meeting house. A 5 minute drive up the road from us. Unfortunately for us we do not get to visit this area too often, just drive past it every day. The chapel should be ready to move into it in the next week or so. The garden and car park still have to be established. It is a large block of land. The font is outside at the back of the building.

On the 6 September we went out of our Zone and took a member back to the town where he was baptised. We left home at 6.30am and by the time we picked up our passengers from Maase and got to ABOMOSO it was exactly 9!!! Abomoso is where the church started up here in the bush. (As you can tell from the old yellow building). Stephen Abu is a pioneer of the church here and is mentioned in the book I am holding. He was persecuted by people during "the Freeze" and people prayed that he would die, all because he had found this church that he wouldn't deny.  His brother Doctor Kissi (who runs Deseret Hospital in Accra) wrote the book.

I don't know how old this building is.
Check out the spire on the left (at least
I think that is what it is!)
 In contrast to the yellow building, tucked away up a dirt road, we came across this building. We saw the sign for the Church and asked our extra local passenger if it was far out of our way to go and have a look. We were so glad we did. It is an Oasis in the middle of nowhere! I think its about 2 years old. It is in a place called KWABENG. It is really lovely. You can't see from these photos, but it is off the main road and all around there are other buildings not so nice!
