He had dinner that night in Accra with his twin brother (who was also being released from his 2 yr mission) and his brother's mission president (Ghana Accra Mission). We miss you "brother" Ewudzie.

Dozens of women gather each morning to "work" their way down the hillside road picking up the plastics and paper and dead leaves to be burned in order to beautify the roadside. They work very hard and are doing a great job. We clap for them as we drive by each morning.
Parade down Main Motor Road celebrating "Pick a Plastic Day". To get ready for the 50th anniversary of Sierra Leone's Independence on April 25, the people are cleaning up the town of Freetown. Pick a Plastic refers to the millions of plastic and paper wrappings that are thrown on the ground everywhere. Everything does look nicer now.
