Sarah Ferguson yɛɛ nea obetumi biara kaa nokware no ho asɛm kyerɛɛ afoforo. Nanso na ɔtaa bisa ne ho sɛ, ‘Hena koraa na ɔbɛba abɛboa me ne m’abusua ne nnipa a wɔwɔ Brazil ma yɛate asɛm no ase yiye’? Afe 1912 no, Brooklyn Betel ne Sarah dii nkitaho sɛ obi de kratawa a wɔato din Where Are the Dead? (Ɛhe na Awufo Wɔ?) no mpempem a ɛwɔ Portuguese kasa mu reba São Paulo.
