“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
Indeed, in His time He makes all things beautiful. The God that we serve is good at doing things according to His own timing and schedule. Sometimes we want things done our way but God’s has seasons for everything and we have to identify them and fit into it.
The long awaited Bridges training at Gushegu finally took place with 45 participants in attendance drawn from 8 different denominations. From the discussions it became evident that there was a great need in that area and unity and consented effort is needed for the Gospel to be carried out to the numerous unreached parts of the area.
One Million Village Challenge
Samson was joined by two hub leaders to participate in the one million villages Challenge training that took place in Tamale. It opened the eyes of participants to the need that exist in Northern Ghana and the contribution that we can make in taking Christ into areas that still have not yet experienced him.
CHE TOT 2
Community Health Evangelism (CHE) Training of Trainers took place in Tamale. It helped equip us on how to train others as well as how to better initiate and implement CHE in the communities that we work.
Goats were presented to some selected orphans as a way of our commitment to be used by God to empower them and their families for a hope and a better future. Previous receivers were brought to testify how they cared for their goats and how God has caused an increase to take place.
We will want you to stand with in prayer in the following areas:
- Thank God for the successful Bridges training at Gushegu and pray for those that have been postponed that they will all take place for the advancement of the Kingdom.
- Pray for the planning process of the 2017 Bridges trainings that God will lead us to areas that He has designed to equip the Church to become effective witnesses.
- Pray for communities in the nation of Ghana as we go through the raining season which has begun with floods which have claimed some lives especially, in Northern Ghana.
- Thank God for the goats that were given and ask for good health and multiplication.
Yours in His Vineyard
