The following actual report of missionaries from Europe on a mission to Ghana, shows how nature was tampered with. While most of the European missionaries died within a short time of their mission, a few of them were treated and healed by the same people whom the missionaries called "Heathens"......
The Presbyterian Church of Ghana, as it is today, is the work of both the Basel Missionary Society of Basel, Switzerland, and the Scottish Missionary Society of Scotland.
The church has borne three names since it was founded:
The Basel Mission
The Scottish Mission
Now the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, 1926 at Abetifi. That was the 1st Synod conference, the highest court of the church.
FIRST GROUP OF MISSIONARIES:
It was on the 18th December, 1825, that the first four missionaries of the Basel Missionary Society landed at Osu, the then so-called Christiansborg, Osu, a sub-nation of the Ga-Adangbe nation. At this time (Osu) Christiansborg was the headquarters of the Danish possessions of the Gold Coast (Ghana). They negotiated with the authorities of Basel Mission to start the Mission work in Ghana. Anyway the Danes had started it on a small scale at the coast, that is Christiansborg. The head of the Synod is the Moderator. The four missionaries were:
(a) Karl F. Salbach
(b) Johannes G. Schmidt
(c) Gottlieb Holzwath
(d) Johannes Henke
SECOND GROUP OF MISSIONARIES
The brethren offered themselves to continue the work. They arrived in March, 1832. They were:
(a) Peter Peterson Jager
(b) Andreas Riis
(c) Frederick Heinze
Dr. Frederick Heinze was a medical doctor but the fever proved stronger than his skill. He died after six weeks of his arrival. Peter Peterson Jager died shortly after Dr. Heinze, Leaving Andreas Riis, he nearly died in September, 1832 but was saved by a native doctor.
He was kept at the coast as a Danish Chaplain for three years against his will. He wished to penetrate into the interior. In 1835, a Danish Chaplain took charge of the fort congregation, thus giving him chance to penetrate.
MR. ANDREAS RIIS' VISIT TO AKROPONG
The air there was good for him, cool. It helped him to recover quickly from the intermitted fever attacks. He recieved a friendly welcome from the people and their Chief Nana Addo Dankwa I. He settled permanently at Akropong. He put up a building in the native style and so was called OSIADAN.
THIRD GROUP OF MISSIONARIES
Mr. Riis' activities encouraged the home Mission Board at Basel. Two others were sent to help:
(a) Johannes Murdter
(b) Andreas Stanger
They arrived in 1836. They came with a lady Miss M. Anna Wolters, the future wife of Andreas Riis. Unfortunately, about eleven months after their arrival the two men died leaving only Mr. Riis and his wife.
The committee of the Basel Mission had to decide whether to continue with the work in the Gold Coast or not.
Twelve years had now elapsed since the first missionaries arrived but eight out of the nine missionaries had died. No fruit of the work was yet seen, because not a single heathen had been baptised. ( Note: Due to the ignorant minds of the missionaries, they classified all Nubians (Africans) then and non- christians now, as HEATHENS.)
MR. ANDREAS RIIS WAS CALLED BACK TO BASE
Before Mr. Riis went home, he visited Kumasi. The prospects for mission work in Ashanti were not inviting. At this time, the Wesley Methodists were preparing to open a mission there. After this unsuccessful visit to Ashanti, he went back to Basel.
When Riis was leaving Akropong, the chief and his elders bade him farewell. The people felt his departure from among them. Nana Addo Dankwa I addressed him through his linguist as: "When god created the world, he made book for the white man, and fetish or juju for the black man, but if you could show us some black man who could read the white man's book then we would surely follow".
THE COMING OF THE NEGRO CHRISTIANS FROM WEST INDIES
When Riis reached Europe, he was interviewed by their committee about the mission work. The Basel Mission Society had to continue the work or to stop. Inspector Rev. Hoffmann (Head of the Committee in Basel) brought a new plan. The plan was to bring some of the negro christians from West Indies to Akropong to settle there as colonists.
So the committee asked the conference of the Moravian Bretheren for help. Mr. Riis and J.G. Widman (the newly appointed fellow labourer) went to Jamaicada (Jamaica), in West Indies. Twenty-four Christian Negroes were willing to devote themselves to the service of the lord in West Africa; (they included six married men with their wives and children). They settled at Akropong. A school was soon opened at Akropong with the children of the West Indians as the first pupils. They were instructed in English. Later some of the chiefs and the principal men brought their children to be educated. Sixteen years now and not a single convert.
a) The first fruit
In 1874, the number of the school children was seventy. Nineteen years now in 1847, on the day of Pentecost baptism of the first fruit took place at Akropong. The two came to Christiansborg.
b) First Theological Seminary
In 1847, two missionaries, Djeterle and Wedmann, started a Theological Seminary at Akropong. First students were four. One West Indian and three native young men. The twi language was also reduced into writing. The West Indians brought some seeds: pear, mango and cocoyam.
DEATH RECORDED IN NINETEEN YEARS
The total Basel missionaries who lost their lives during the planting of christianity in the Gold Coast were one hundred and forty one. Ninety-six missionaries and forty-five lady missionaries are indelible in the history of the church. We are grateful to God.
OTHER NEW STATIONS
Akropong now became the center from which the light of the gospel radiated. With the training that the Training college provided, young men were prepared for the work of evangelisation. New head stations were created one after another as the opportunity arose.
Aburi: 1847, coffee plantations were laid out by J. Mohi and the West Indian immigrants who had brought seeds from the West Indies.
Kyebi: 1862, before this station was opened the missionaries first settled at Gyadam in 1853. Gyadam was destroyed before anything could be done. They retired first to Kukurantumi before settling at Kyebi. There was opposition from the chief. He tried to persecute the christians and he was no friend to them, e.g. He falsely accused one of the elders of Kyebi of having stolen a quantity of gold dust. On this ground he ill-treated the elders including all christians. The government of the country intervened, and the christians were set free. Chief Atta was exiled by the government and died in exile. The people accused the christians of being the cause of the Chief's death. Persecutions broke out and many mission properties were destroyed. The government promptly intervened to restore peace.
Anum: 1864, The mission began to flourish. Unfortunately, the Ashantis invaded the area and destroyed Anum. The missionaries there, Rev. & Mrs. Ramseyer and Mr. Kuhre arrived as prisoners to Kumasi. The journey lasted several weeks. It was a great hardship for the European especially the lady. They had to walk the whole day on foot, exposed to the burning sun in day time and to the chills at night. Their baby died on the way for want of proper nourishment. Rev and Mrs. Ramseyer and Mr. Kuhne were kept there more than four years. In January, 1874, when the British Army under Sir Garnet Wesley invaded Kumasi, these missionaries had plans for the future work in Ashanti.
Abetifi: 1876, the choice of the town proved a very happy one. It is about 2000 feet above sea level. It is the most healthy of all basel mission stations. The work here has not been in vain. The Seminary, the centre, the church and the various schools in the town proved that the work had yielded fruit.
Begoro - 1875
Nsaba - 1893
Odumase - 1899, extension was made to the Krobo lands, so the head station was created. The Odumase girls school was established in 1873 and the middle school in 1905.
The revolt of the coastal towns as the result of a pool tax, brought about the scattering of the temporary shifting of the headquarters to Abokobi. The importance of Christiansborg was soon restored and had credit of the reputation for being the centre of all initial Ga literary work connected with the church, including the translation of the Bible.
IN ASHANTI EIGHTY-EIGHT (88) YEARS LATER
The preaching of gospel in Ashanti was not started until in 1896, 88 years after the first missionaries had arrived. Several attempts had been made without success. In 1896 the Gold Coast Government annexed Ashanti and deported King Prempeh I. The gate was suddenly opened for missionary work. Rev. Ramseyer who had been a prisoner there was honored to go. The living tribute to his work is the present Kumasi Church which bears his name. (Ramseyer Presbyterian Church, Adum Kumasi).
MARKS OF A PRESBYTERIAN
The fact that Presbyterians are not Methodists, Catholics or Baptists is a matter of circumstances and history. The Presbyterian Church;
(1) Has an evangelization Character.
(2) Has maintained teaching and promulgating of the great facts of the faith once delivered to the saints.
(3) Takes the scripture of both the old Testament and new Testament as inspired word of God.
(4) Takes the scripture, as the supreme rule of faith and practice containing all things necessary for salvation and the holy spirit is its interpreter.

THE EBOLA AGONY & SAGA.
THIS IS A CONCISE EBOLA RESEARCH INFORMATION FROM A NON-GOVERNMENTAL PRIVATE FIRM.
" THE MISSION OF A BLIND PERSON WITH A THREAD AND A NEEDLE"
Was the CDC, Pharmaceutical companies and Affiliates original mission to Africa was to cure malaria-fever indefinitely with an experimental drugs ?
Humans or living things are good bacteria to the Planet-Earth, as good bacteria in the human body is a benefit to the human life. A human being with a minute or very low good bacteria in their body stands a big risk of contracting any disease anytime, anywhere, at any temperature, at any age and to any race unconditionally.
My 25-years of living in the sub-Sahara Africa gave me the fair and the true observation of the African environment, health, way of thinking, self surviving, sicknesses, culture and its relationship to nature in general. The African living in the sub-Sahara environment has naturally acquired a self cleansing cycle of their human body with a disadvantage of being sick from malaria fever which last for 3 to 4 days. The malaria-fever posses as menstrual cycle, in this case it takes many years interval of 5 to 9 years to occur, periodically 2 to 3 times in their life time, which is preventable and curable.
The malaria normally start to affect from 5,7 to 9 years of age which will be cured with natural herbal anti-bionic with quinine purposely to avoid any bodily itches or side effects. When the body is being taken care of hygienically and with minimum mosquito bites, chances of getting malaria will be zero, otherwise one may acquire the malaria fever again at the age of 9 to 13 years of age when the body is maturing to adult level to be reproductive. After 13 to 18 or 19, when the body is being taken care of, there will be zero malaria-fever onwards.
A synthetic medicine with synthetic quinine or synthetic anti-biotic is a big potential of attacking not only the bad and the good bacteria in the body but attacks and put strain on the body organs, and we know a strained body organ result in malfunctions and in some cases when a strained organ ruptured = to bleeding, diarrhea or vomiting which can be fatal. The inhabitants of the sub-Sahara areas are authentic Nubian blooded or Black skin people with the black pigmentation covering their skin against outside infection, the protection from melanin. This melanin and their highly immune body defense system allow them to suppress sicknesses for years.
The equatorial belt of the sub-Sahara territories, specifically 35-degrees latitude is rich from any natural species, earthly raw materials, earth-soil, atmospheric oxygen and human DNA, etc. The earth's equatorial belt ground areas which is the shortest distance to the sun has been nature's blessings in disguised to the area inhabitants. The sun's shortest distance burning on the equatorial grounds not only energizes the inhabitants due to their black pigmentation skin but it also supply them with immune defense system, this nature's act apply also to animals and plants in the area, a potent environment. The equatorial belt area is also a disadvantaged to a non black pigmentation skin person or persons, the disadvantage is cancerous melanoma and quick death from malaria fever, which can be avoided by less sun activities and less mosquito bites.
( THE ABOVE SUGGEST AN EBOLA EXPERIMENTAL DRUGS MUST NOT BE GIVEN TO A MALARIA FEVER PATIENCE, IT SEEMS SOME PHYSICIAN'S-SCIENTIST ARE AVOIDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MALARIA SYMPTOMS TO THAT OF EBOLA SYMPTOM OR COMBINING BOTH AS ONE SYMPTOM WHICH CAN BE FATAL )
THE QUESTION IS.
(A) ;- Did the doctors without boarders / Center for Disease Control / Interim Doctors / Affiliation to CDC or other personnel tested any experimental drugs on a malaria fever patience, who had no symptoms of Ebola ?.
(B) ;- Did any malaria fever patience started to vomit, had a diarrhea, and bled after taking any experimental drugs. ?.
(C) ;- Was a malaria fever patience blood tested before taking any drug ?.
(D) ;- Was a malaria fever patience given an experimental drug, after a blood test from perform. ?
(E) ;- Was a malaria fever patience who was not bleeding, vomiting and without a diarrhea when taken an experimental drug, started vomiting, bleeding with a diarrhea. ?
(F) ;- If there was no Ebola disease prior to the experimental drugs, what were you going to cure ?.
THE PRECONCEPTION IMPOSED UPON THE DECENCY OF ETHICS
The natural laws of nature and its practices have been unquestionable, and have proved to be successful among the "GA-ADANGBE" Nation and its relative Nubian nations.
The Human Anatomy's biological functions were studied by the Ga-Adangbes and their sister nations within the equatorial and the rain forest regions and they naturally practiced it as their daily life style. This practices, they preserved within their spiritual mental faculties in their existence and passed on the same practices to their generation.
The natural mineral drinking well waters of the Ga-Adangbe sub-nations of Ga-Mashie, Osu, La, Teshie, Nungua and Tema etc. were the earliest natural waters to be contaminated with supposed to be water treatment chemical named "Milton" by the Europeans, before I was born. However, my uncles, aunts, grandmother and great-grand mother who lived in Ada and its regional areas, including the people of that area , drank, cooked and bathed with their natural mineral well-water, boiled or un-boiled as part of their natural life style before and after the waters were contaminated by "Milton" in the Ga areas as mentioned above. Despite this they were not plagued by debilitating illnesses such as AIDS, HIV-positive, small or chicken pox and sickle cell anemia.
It is true that the Ada and Ewe regional people do get sick with malaria but NOT to epidemic levels. Statistically,when at the age of 3 to 5 years old this malaria may occur in a person once and may be repeated once within 10 to 15 years after, or may never occur again in that person through his or her entire life. Basically malaria sickness within the West Africans is healed by mainly neem medicine and other herbal medicine within a week and a half, without imported form of penicillin or quinine, such as nivaquine, malarex, mepacrine, camoquine or any other form of synthetic quinine being administered.
As a specimen of the La-Asafo sub-nation of the Ga-Adangbe nation, it was a blessing whenever I visited my mother's home town Ada and its territories. Some of the visits that lasted more than a month welcomed me with a malaria fever, as a result of my natural immune system having been lowered by drinking "milton" water while living in the city and its territories. Within a week of my stay in Ada, the malaria fever would be gone after local medicinal treatment, following which I would be back living among and within my natural biological laws of nature and its natural practices. I do not recollect witnessing any malaria illness while living with my Ada relatives. Rather it seemed I witnessed the excellent natural biological functioning of the human anatomy being preserved and practiced as a way of life.
At the age of 4 to 5 years old, I remember being sick with a cold - this event sticks out poignantly in my mind - because my grand Aunt "Otuko" sucked the mucus out of my nose with her mouth, 2 or 3 times a day. Within three days the fever and cold were gone and I remember feeling distinctly better. As observed, this incident between my grand Aunt "Otuko" and I did not infect her with a cold, instead (as a child) she appeared to me to be a human hospital, equipped with the full biological defense system, not broken down or tampered by foreign substances. She was one of many such human hospitals in the non-milton, non-quinine environment of the Ada area. At 90 years she was still healthy and active, walking 3-4 miles a week to do her grocery shopping at a local market. On occasion during visits to her children in Accra she would drink "milton' contaminated water in La and Osu territories. One day when she was about 95 years old she fell and broke her hip. This fall is what eventually led to her death at close to 100 years old.
In the same vein as my grand Aunt "Otuko" of Ada , an Aunt of mine, "Atswei-Adoma" Tete (Tetteh) likewise lived until she was 104 years old and by the time she died she still had all her 32 teeth, intact without cavities. My Aunt "Atswei-Adoma" was introduced to the milton contaminated water in the La-Asafo sub-nation of the "Ga-Adangbes" when she was approximately 50 years old. Although her natural immune biological defense system had been subjected to and been at war with milton and quinine, she lived to be 104 years old. I venture to say she would probably have lived longer had she not embraced the drinking of milton-contaminated water and quinine.
You can imagine that 50 years of imbibing milton-contaminated water and medicinal quinine weakened the natural biological immune defense system, resulting in the introduction of many new and foreign diseases to the Ga-Adangbe people.
The Decency of Ethics can best be found within the cultured African Families, this Ancient Ancestral Nubians Legacy existed among the Ga-Adangbes before the missionaries arrived in Ghana. This system has existed within their biological and spiritual format and is among many of their Spiritual Doctrines, which functions under the Decency of Ethics as their legacy. As an active Anciently formatted system of the Ga-Adangbes, each "Whe" (House) is a Court House, a Marital Ceremony House, Sanctification Ceremony House (the so-called outdooring ceremony), Funeral House (a portion within the house) and a House of yearly Atonement festival ceremony "Homowo Festival".
There are various Houses known as "Whe" within each Clan known as "Akutso" which linguistically means "Body House" or "Spiritual Body" and many of the Clans make a sub-Nation. On the spiritual level, since the subjects (Descendants) of that "Whe" (House) already have spiritual contracts with their Ancestors through birthrights, their spiritual attention is drawn easily on a mutual basis to compromise the reason..........., this is always based on Decency of Ethics.
Due to the Decency of Ethics, the Nubians now called Africans, live in an environment of life perfect creation, in which one must be perfect to function normally in that environment through nature's course without synthetic medication, food or alien moral obligations. "AFRICA IS A LIVING PLACE OF NATUARAL MENTALITY AND NATURAL BIOLOGICAL TESTING GROUND, THE RESULTS OF WHICH WILL PROVE THE PERSON OR PERSONS AS BEING TOTALLY WHOLE OR WOEFULLY DEFICIENT". A person with a poor or no biological immune defense system who travels to Africa without medication will be severely sick toward death. This sad situation happened to one- hundred and forty- one European missionaries then, until they brought synthetic penicillin and quinine etc, to use for themselves and UNFORTUNATELY for the Africans (Nubians) who never needed synthetic penicillin and quinine etc, because they (Africans) know the type of medications that works for their blood.
Through this, a new era of diseases was born- the persons who introduced those medications then were not intelligent enough to know the outcome of what they were doing or were they doing that intentionally?. A person who lives in Africa absorbing synthetic medicine shows signs of rejecting that synthetic medication, not only do they itch all over but damage their natural immune defense biological system, have Kidney problems, Liver problems, Eye and Ear infections coupled with Gynecological problems ( experimental family planning medications and inserts )etc, creating a potential of acquiring new or foreign sicknesses.
When a person's Blood cells are tampered with it affects his mental faculty to a state of tameness. When that happens to a person or persons, their natural moral sense of judgment become questionable. The African not tampered with can naturally survive in any climate and can solve any difficult problem, they have always been healthy and have always had strong immune defense systems until............... . Nature will want to be left alone, not to be tampered with.
The Laws of Nature have no alphabets, yet their Faculty is the Brain of a Living Thing. They are laws that we were born with and we witness their functions through Nature’s Causes, their Justifications lies between Right doings and Wrong doings. " NII-ABEKA NAI-TETE".
In reference to the above statement, which can be practiced the easier way or the hard way, yet it was taken advantage of, because most humans couldn't identify Mother Nature’s opposition to our doings. Before spilling these words of mine, which one may understand as " The Accused Judgment to Humanity " let me expose an old proverb of the Ga-Adangbes in the Ga language: " Tshatsu kee ebaa sa shuor, ni shuor kee tshatsu ake; Dzee esaa le dzi sane le, shi mon saa le see sane ni baafu le tshatsu le mon dzi sane le ". In the English translation: Ant told elephant that he would give him an enema and the elephant told the ant that, performing the enema on him was not the problem, rather the problem would be the result of the enema which would bury the ant was what he (the elephant) was worried about. In simple form, "One should think of the result of an action before it takes place" or " Think before you act".
The residents along the banks of the Nile rivers, Zambezi rivers, Congo rivers, Niger rivers and the Shwilao rivers (now known as the Volta river), traveled on these rivers by local cargo and passenger canoes, to and from their market places and their farms to transport goods to their destinations. In most cases, they traveled on the rivers to relative towns, cities and to other countries near and far. These rivers were once major trading routes among nations.
Before the intrusion of the rivers by hydroelectric dams, the economy status of the residents along the riverbanks as well as those residents who did not live on the riverbanks, including the countries they lived in, was reasonable. Though they were in good health then without any new diseases, there was never an epidemic with their old and few rare diseases. However, any sicknesses or disease among them then was familiar to them and was treated naturally with natural herbal treatment and the non-chemically contaminated food they ate.
In essence they were fully in control and aware of their functions within the environment they lived in. Their education was and is solely based on decency of ethics, nature studies, spiritual studies, art and craft, agriculture, medicine and its treatment, laws and regulations, royal responsibilities, fishing, child bearing and social activities, etc.
Ironically the newly introduced regimes imposed upon them did not allow water to find its own level. These regimes were engaged in modern technology, thinking they would be left behind by other worlds, while in actual fact the Nubians (Africans) had never been left behind, rather they were always ahead of modern technology through mother nature. This new era of new regimes succeeded in hydroelectric water projects (dams), which kept them instead, far away from the nature that they were known to be closer to than any human species. This resulted in a partial divorce between Nature and the Africans.
Confusion and chaos jumped on board. (1) The yearly cycle of the rivers rises, which recedes for planting and harvesting of crops was broken by the hydroelectric projects. The natural chronology of the rivers has been abused. This severely reduced commercial agriculture due to long-term dry land, which also resulted in lack of food for humans and animals. While commercial fishing was also in jeopardy, the birds which fly and relocate seasonally were also affected.
Famine was born, while some of the river tributaries became lifeless and swampy producing more mosquitoes and parasites. Epidemic of sicknesses rose, coupled with death, broken hearts, broken marriages, crimes, bribery and corruption. These became their partial life style and the adamant of massive economic instability was stationed.
Due to these unfortunate situations, over 50% (fifty percent) of future generations of each city or towns along the river banks and other non-river bank residents headed to the capital city and its districts. This quadrupled the population of the city and its regional areas resulting in a worse situation with more sicknesses, higher unemployment with no unemployment compensation system in place. Therefore, National leadership became questionable and coup-d'etats were introduced. I will sadly say that Africa will always be a failure if the leader of the African is under the influence of another country’s system. Until the African is African minded, the African will always....................................
