Your National Missionaries to Ghana, West Africa, Serving God and Man
ďFor a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.Ē
(I Corinthians 16:9)
May - June 2003
Dear Ones in
Greetings again to you all in our Lord
and Redeemer Jesus Christís Name
We can say with the Psalmist, "Bless the
Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great Thou art clothed with honor
and majesty" Ps 104:1
First Mission Group from
On May 26th a mission team
arrived from Indianapolis, Indiana.
They preached at our school and the
public schools, over 30 children accepted the Lord.
On May 30th we took an
evangelistic and fact findings mission trip 500miles to an old.
Slave market town in the northern part
of Ghana, called Salaga. After we got settled, we were taking through the town
to see the places where the Slave Trade took place from the 1600ís to the
19900ís. We saw the Slave Market, both houses, wells, cemetery etc. The heart of
man is deceitful and desperately wicked indeed. We then traveled 33miles to
another Village where a young man by name Peter is starting new churches with
the help of five other young men. On the arrival the chief of the village and
his elders were in his court yard with his elders. Waiting for us . He ordered
that all the people must be gathered, both adults and children. After 30 minutes
of singing, Pastor Michael from Emmanuel Missionary Baptist preached.This was
about 6:00 pm. I had a small Inverter that operates with a car battery, but ten
minutes into the preaching one of the children out of excitement knocked it
down, Pastor Michael end up preaching with a flashlight. We left the village
about 7:30 pm and got back to Salaga.
On Sunday 31st May, we went
back to the village at 9:30 for Sunday school and Worship service at the Chiefís
court yard. OVERWHELMING CROWNED: Within thirty minutes of our arrival there
were more than 300. People in the court yard, both adults and children. By the
time of the morning worship there were over 400 people, some of the children
came almost naked, they came with what they have. We gave them some used
clothing after the service. To hear Godís Word. Over 40 children accepted the
Lord as their Savoir and 12 adults at the end of the service.
The chief who was among the worshipers
told us the sad state of the people.
The nearest clinic or health post is 33
miles away, therefore if any of his people are sick, they have to put the sick
person on a bicycle because the roads are in bad state for vehicles to
Women in labor also have to be put on
bicycle for a 33 miles trip to a clinic.
The chief is appealing to all of us to
help them with some form of medical help, i.e health post, clinic or drug store.
The situation is heart breaking Their schools are also in very bad state, they
need books for grades one to eight. They need funds for church building, the
Chief is prepared to give land for the church and clinic or drug store. There
are 17 villages under Chief of the Village called Lonto.
Please join us to help reach and win
these precious SOULS TO THE LORD.
The pastors only need $50 for monthly
support and bicycles to reach and minister to their people.
We return to Accra on June
1st very tied due to the condition of the roads in the northern
part of Ghana.
