Day 3: Agogo (Sunday, April 5)

Well, this is it; the big day. Early this morning, we woke up, got our luggage, and got ready to head out to Agogo, four and a half hours away from Accra. With snacks in hand, we set out for the mountain roads and headed to the northwest. Flat Stanley was excited, too.

Upon arrival, we went to the Pentecost Bible College, where we stayed in the dorms for our entire stay in Agogo. After unpacking, showering, and changing, we went out to the palace of Omanhene (Chief) Nana Akuoko Sarpong for our reception celebration. 

The welcome was overwhelmingly incredible; there were so many people there, and lots of traditional music and handshaking. We even did a bit of dancing, surprisingly. This was all so poignant because this type of celebration is only held for the most honored of visitors. After a long, long night, we finally returned to the dorm and got some well-deserved rest for the next morning.

Rolling into town next is Day 4. The real work began then, for sure. Until next time.
