“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” (James 1:27) NLT)
Today we are so focused on religion and its associated rituals to the detriment of what pure religion actually is in the sight of the Lord. The desire of the Lord is that we will practice pure and genuine religion not by any person’s standard but His and that we will not be corrupted by the world.
Distribution of Goats
The Ghana Team began the purchase, distribution and the presentation of goats to identified categories of orphans. It has been a good and impactful moment interacting with beneficiaries and listening to their stories.
Two weeks after the return of the Team of Pastors led by Samson to the “overseas” area for leadership and discipleship training, he had to lead another group back to the place for a funeral and an outreach. Samson had the privilege to encourage the bereaved and present the gospel to about 300 people in an open crusade.
The piggery started by Samson is beginning to experience expansion. Some efforts are being made to improve on the management of the piggery. A veterinary officer was taken to vaccinate the pigs to improve on their health and to prevent them from diseases.
The Ghana Team received the news of the passing to glory of the mother of the founder and president of U4A Samson Okongo. From everyone over here we express our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to Okongo, David and the entire family. May our mother rest in the bosom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
- Pray for the unreached areas of Northern Ghana that the Lord will continue to work on the hearts of the unsaved.
- Continue to pray for farmers over here in Ghana as they about their farming activities.
- Pray for orphans receiving goats through the partnership between U4A and Pantano Church that they will be healthy and multiply to be a blessing for them.
Yours in His Vineyard,
Country Director, Ghana
