ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany pastor returned from a mission to west Africa Wednesday night.

Family and friends welcomed Dr. Henry Brown back to the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport. He pastors House of Prayer By Faith Church and spent the past two weeks in Ghana ministering to people and helping with school programs.

Brown says it's rewarding work but he's happy to be home.

"I'm glad to be back. I was so happy to see my little 21-month-old grandson and other grandchildren and my wife of course. I've been flying since about 10 o'clock last night so I've spent about 15 or 16 hours on an airplane," said Brown.  

Brown also traveled to the spot President Obama and his family visited in July. Known as "the place of no return", it's where slaves began their journey to this country.
