From the very beginning, the Doulos International Night in Accra had a global focus. Even as people arrived, the lobby area was filled with displays from crewmembers' different countries. The audience responded enthusiastically to the programme of songs and dances from around the world. "You should come back!" shouted one lady as MC Denni Capell (New Zealand) explained Doulos was soon leaving Tema. Emmanuel responded to the message to become more involved in helping meet the needs of the world. "The message was powerful," he said as the evening finished. "I need to move forward to the next step. The challenge is not to just stay still."
