The United States of America has always intrigued me. During the cold war era, my high school was divided between the “East” and “West.” I belonged to the “West” because I loved America and the spirit of liberty . My keen interest in America and Americans was fueled by the newsletter American Outlook and the Ebony Magazine, a magazine designed to show the progress of black people in American society. Through reading, I encountered Drs. W.E.B. Du Bois and Martin Luther King, men who have made significant contributions for the advancement of colored people in the USA. I identified with these noble men. Abandoning Law School, I received a call to the ministry and went to seminary. As I was studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, one day, a fellow minister prophesied to me that I would go to America to continue my studies. Through some miraculous circumstances, God fulfilled the prophecy, and I found myself at the Seventh-day Adventist Seminary in Michigan where I eventually earned a Ph.D. in religion. I was invited to help establish and pastor a Ghanaian church in the Bronx, NY. Shortly before coming to assume my pastoral responsibilities, I had a dream by night and saw the Statue of Liberty. Not long after this, a friend who had visited New York presented me with a souvenir key-holder attached to a figure of the Statue of Liberty. Now, I know it is the Lord Himself who brought me to this great city to serve my fellow human beings and Him.
