Reunion at Folk Festival

Pictured front row left to right are Alexx St. John, Rita Tawiah, James Croft, & Tettey Tetteh. Back row left to right are Sonja St. John & Sarah St. John. Sonja’s husband Ernie is not in the photo because he took the photo (thanks Ernie!).

I went with the St. John family (Sonja has been on our Ghana team for three years) to the Florida Folk Festival in White Springs Sunday night after church to watch a group from Ghana, West Africa perform. The group is called Kusun Ensemble. They were great!

After the performance, we met the leader of the group, Tettey Tetteh, and talked with him for a while. We shared about our trips to Ghana and swapped contact information. It appeared that we did not know any of the same people in Ghana even though Tettey is from Teshie-Nungua which is where we stayed. As we were leaving the park Tettey called me on my cell-phone and said that one of the ladies in the group recognized me from Ghana! Well come to find out, she is the niece of Evangelist Raphael Adjei Kingbi, our host while in Ghana! Evangelist Ralph picked her up at the airport last October while we were there and I met her once or twice. Her name is Rita Tawiah. In addition, a couple of the members had attended a night of our crusade! What a small world!!!

We even called Ralph (at 3am Ghana time) and he was very surprised to find out that we were with Rita in Florida. He and Rita were able to talk for a few minutes. It was an incredibly wonderful time!

Another of our Ghana team members , Jon Fletcher, attended the festival on Saturday. Sonja said she saw him taking photos and talked with him a while. I don’t know if Jon was able to talk to the group or not.

If you would like to know more about the Kusun Ensemble you can go to Tettey also has a school in Ghana and you can find out more about it at
