“My food” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Do you not say, four months more and then the harvest? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.(John 4:34-35 NIV)
The death and resurrection of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ is not just the hope and foundation of Christianity but the hope of the entire humanity. It has been clearly stated in scripture that without the shedding of blood there can be no remission of sin. The finished work of the cross was what offered all humanity the basis for a claim on the mercy of God for all humankind.
Pastors and Leaders Prayer Retreat
Samson led 32 Church Pastors and Church leaders for a 3-day prayer retreat. The retreat offered the participants an opportunity for self-examination and commitment to the Lord and the offering of corporate prayer to the most High God for doing something new in His Church. It was a moment of great joy and a first hand experience of what has been recorded about Jesus Christ’s ministry on the mountains.
The Ghana International Baptist Convention under the leadership of Samson marked the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ with a convention which brought together over 500 participants to remember the great work Christ did for mankind and to remind everyone the task he left for those who trust in Him. Two nights were used to share the Good News of Christ to the inhabitants of the community where the program was held.
The Timothy Initiative Program
The Timothy Initiative Church planting Class that Samson is leading is getting closer to finishing the 10-book curriculum on church planting. Thankfully, another fellowship of new believers who have just said yes to Jesus Christ has just been started by one of the participants in a community that do not have a Church and there is still hope that by the close of the entire program several other fellowships will be starter.
- Pray that all new believers will continue to be strengthened in their faith and growth in the Lord.
- Keep praying for the Gospel work in Northern Ghana, which remains a very hard ground for the Gospel.
- Pray for the raising of more labourers for the harvest.
- Leaders working in very difficult and hard places that they will continue to be encouraged to receive strength from the Lord as they look forward to a great harvest and open doors for the Gospel.
Yours in His Vineyard
