Kwabena is a moving and encouraging story of how an African boy struggled as an orphan to free himself from an uncle who was extremely abusive. Fearing death, he escaped from the village of Yaara and this uncle only to fall into the hands of his mother's brother who was a tribal witch doctor. Here, he was introduced to potent witchcraft and became a fearsome youngster. At the age of fifteen, he was a leader of a ruthless young gang that terrorized both humans and animals in the village of Bamboi in Northern Ghana. David became converted to Christianity on the street through a seventy-year-old man. During this period of his life, he came face to face with hunger, starvation and neglect. Despite borders and the airport being closed, he managed to leave Ghana in 1979 and arrived in Canada with only $10.00 U.S. in his pocket. He brings vividly to light the intervention of God at crucial stages of his life when he thought his life was over. Despite the harshness with which life has treated him, he has been able to rise above it, living a life of devotion to Christ and humanity and encourages others to do the same. Here is a story of hope and triumph for everyone.
