Fascinating Look at the Cultural Divide Between Ghana and Washington, D.C.,

"But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land where he went, and his descendants shall inherit it." -- Numbers 14:24 (NKJV)
I remember reading about Peggielene Bartels becoming a "king" in Ghana some time ago. I thought the story was interesting then. This unabridged audio CD is far more interesting than what I had read earlier. King Bartels is an amazing woman, filled with a desire to do good, a willingness to sacrifice, and almost unlimited patience with utter nonsense. With God's help, she becomes quite a good king.
I was attracted to the book because I will be visiting many African nations in the next few years as part of The 400 Year Project, and in working with people there I have come to appreciate that how Americans think about Africa is almost always totally wrong. Ms. Bartels does a wonderful job of bridging that culture gap so we can better appreciate how things are done in her corner of Ghana.
