Hello. We are Elder and Sister Olson. We are serving in the Kumasi Mission with your son.
We live in Techiman but travel to Tamale 2 times a month. It is a 3 1/2 hour drive to Tamale. We take up supplies and lots of food. We give the 12 missionaries there 2 good meals the 4 days we are there. We have a small apartment at the Target Chapel where your son and 3 other missionaries also stay.
He is a fine young man and is quick to help us. They even wash our truck that gets soooo dirty. We send out a weekly letter with pictures and wondered if you would like to be on our list. Elder Cornelius may not be in all the pictures, but you can get a glimpse of where he is and what Ghana is like. Please let us know. We love helping these Elders. Last weekend my husband helped Elders Cornelius and Ekpo put up their mosquito nets. They had a good time. Older couples have no rules so we can email when we want. If we can help you in any way please shoot us an email. Hope you enjoy some pictures.

Traffic is unbelievable. When the light changes, it is every man for himself.
They eat everything. If fact, they sit there until every crumb is gone. They are always hungry. This some of the food we bought to take to Tamale to prepare the meals. We have to shop in the market, haul it all to our car and take it home to wash everything in bleach before we can use it.
