All Aboard the Jesus Train

Sunday morning is the most important day of the week around these parts and calls for a celebration. Ghanaians get up very early (as does Jesus apparently). The Jesus Train consists of what is perhaps three or four separate groups of about 20 individuals who walk down our street singing jubilantly, sometimes with drums. They are singing in Fante and I don’t understand, but there is only one reason for a six am wake-up call on Sunday and that is Jesus. Sometimes it sounds like they’re in the house.

I’m happy you’re happy and that I don’t understand Fante and the music is enjoyable but it’s honestly six am.
