I visited 6 churches while in Kuntu, including the First African Church in Kuntu

...and Church of the Twelve Apostles

...and Assembly of God church

On photo night I projected over 400 of my Kuntu photos. They wanted more!

The Odambea was big fun, as usual.

Nana Brebo and I danced!

All the chiefs danced!

Nana Brebo and Queen Mother Montoa

I met some old friends from my 2005 visit.

I met with some of the Nkosohen Scholars.

...including Janet, my "soul" when I was enstooled as nkosohen 5 years ago.

Before leaving, electricity was installed in the JSS Nana Baffoe Library.

This summer KVNC-USA funded 2 drinking water storage tanks in Kuntu.

Treated water is trucked-in from Cape Coast or Saltpond.

Ama is in charge of dispensing water in Kuntu.

Saturdays are for communal labor projects.

Everybody, including children, work.

Clearing brush is a weekly task.

I was invited to a family yam festival remembering ancestors and celebrating the harvest.

"Food" is a big part of the yam festival

...and eating is part of the celebration.

I also usually visit the neighbor fishing village, Ankaful.
