  3. Part of our follow-up filming of the story of Fred and Rose's young Pentecostal church in Akropong in 2006. Camera: James Ault. Sound: Francis Kwakye. Local government in the provincial capitol of Akropong, Ghana, is still provided by the King of Akuapem's regular Adae, or council meeting, an ancient, yet still vital, institution. This day discussion ranged from problems with the town's water supply--from which they were getting some financial support from Ghanaians in Rotary International in the USA--to the problem of curses, especially among young people, which were crowding business in a local court.
