Ghana's 10-year-old preacher
By Orla Ryan

BBC, Ghana

At just ten years old, Solomon Yirenkyi is already a veteran preacher.

With two weekly radio shows and two years' practice at the pulpit, he is a big draw for Christians at the Jesus One Touch Church in Oblogo, about half an hour from Accra, the capital of Ghana.

As the church fills up, he fidgets in his smart suit and polished shoes, waiting his turn to preach.
When his time comes, he paces the room, calling on those many years his senior to turn to the Lord for their marital and health problems.

He starts softly but his voice soon booms messages of deliverance for those who look to God.

"Let me tell you this," he cries, a small child with a big microphone. "Seek your way with the Lord."
