The year will forever remain significant in the life of our church because this was the year of arrival of the very first missionaries from Basel. The Basel Mission that sent them had been founded in mainly businessmen, industrialists and philanthropists who wanted to make a totally different impact on Africa that their slave trading compatriots had done.

They were interested in a practical demonstration of Christian love to fellow human beings, and therefore attracted people from varying backgrounds and expertise. The reason for demanding these qualities was obvious.

They were not going to be the first to attempt evangelization in the Gold Coast. As far back asPortuguese Catholics had arrived on the Gold Coast and had attempted to spread the Gospel, but had failed woefully because many other motives accompanied their evangelization motive.

After a few years, commercial interest totally submerged that of the Gospel. The slave trade made it difficult, if not impossible for any clear distinction to be made between missionaries and traders.

However, the few months of their lives that they spent in Osu must have touched a few lives. For eight months, they interacted with the people of Osu, started learning the Ga language, made a few friends and even attempted starting a school.

Their immediate successors who arrived in made similar efforts, renting a house at Osu and living among the people. Two of the three who came also died within missionaries has been largely overlooked in the narration of our history, often due to the attention given to the work of Andreas Riis whose commitment and industry ensured that the mission was not abandoned.

It was he who in the face of much frustration and possible death, took the bold decision to move from Osu to Akropong to make a new attempt. He also initiated exploratory moves into Akyem and other areas before returning to Basel in It is however necessary to put these other missionaries out of obscurity and acknowledge their role however little, in our history.39 TOKUGAWA NARIAKI War Is Preferable to Peace—Japan 40 YI IK Criticisms of Catholicism—Korea 41 AN CHONGBOK The Weakness of Catholicism—Korea “Teacher,” she would begin; “were you brought here from your town in Akuapem to beat our children or to teach them?” She wouldn’t wait for a reply 21 By sustaining demand for large masses of purely unskilled labor, these rural works programs indeed provide an important contribution towards a simultaneous solution to the problems of rural employment, income distribution, and growth.
