rev. godson nii amu akushie

Godson, and our pastor, have been friends since 2008. This friendship allowed our pastor to visit Godson and his family in 2011 and 2012. A recent invitation to the current pastor of the Rev. Peter Kwei Dagadu Methodist Church in Accra, Ghana, has allowed Godson to come to our fair city and state. Below you will find an up-to-date schedule of events while Rev. Akushie visits us.
