This is the Cocoa Bean Shed which was the first meeting
place for the church in Ghana.

This is the place of the first baptisms in Ghana.

The shoreline has moved inward and the first baptism was actually

We visited the Forever Young International School founded by Joseph William (Billy) Johnson
in the portrait on the left. Billy wrote SLC asking for missionaries and waited fourteen years for them to come. 
 His son, Brigham Young Johnson, currently runs the school which has approximately 1,000 students at three locations.

Brigham Young Johnson gave us a tour of the Forever Young School.
