I've Seen It All?



Greetings Everyone,

I have been making some new, old friends at the Jirandogo site. This old farmer came over to greet and sit in the shade for a while. It was good to hear him share things in his culture and family. Ministry is all about building relationships no matter which side of the world you live on.

Every time I think I have seen it all something happens to prove I have more to see…

            I heard a loud noise Wednesday afternoon; it was a cow which had gotten loose and making a lot of noise. People were chasing it and it ran into my fence and got knocked down. The men that were chasing it tried to get it up to make it move but it just laid there. They beat it then tugged and pulled on it to no avail - it would not move.

Then one of the men pointed to a man coming and said, “Here he comes, he will know what to do.

This old fellow came and started twisting the tail and twisting the tail tighter and tighter. Well it made the cow very uncomfortable, but it would still not get up.

Then it happened - the man put the cow’s tail where it was twisted into his mouth and bit down! The cow made a loud sound, jumped up and was very angry like she was looking around saying, “Which one of you bit me?”

I busted out laughing and had to walk away . Emmanuel was gone to a village and I could not wait to tell him this funny story that happened while he was gone.

When he returned, I told him, “I saw a man bite a cow’s tail to make him get up. Is that not the funniest thing?”

 He said, “We do that all the time but it makes them very angry.”  

This was my first time to see this – what is possibly left to see?     Bob

Have to say, in my 5 months there, I never saw anyone biting a cows tail...but it would have made such a nice entry in the blog...right after Hannah killed the rat or John beat the snake to death, haha! Never a dull moment in Ghana, praise God!!
