“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the Westland.” (Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV)
What a joy to be sharing in the grace of another brand new year handed over to us by a loving father who has always loved us and gave Jesus Christ unto us. Praise be to the Lord for a beautiful new year filled with hope not just for blessing in our economic and social lives but in our relationship with the Saviour of the world.
We want to use this opportunity to appreciate all the partners and donors of U4A for their continuous support for the work in the field to see leaders equipped and grass root church planters empowered locally to impact our world. We are indeed grateful and cherish your efforts. May the Lord continue to bless you in all your endeavours.
Over 250 youth of the Ghana International Baptist Convention gathered for their annual Christmas camp at the Bogkurugu School complex. Samson was one of the facilitator for the program which was under the theme: “We are appointed over the nations and kingdoms” The youth were challenged to go and multiply the talents the Lord has given to them in their various communities.
The prospects of the sustainability project envisioned by Samson as a means of raising some local funds to support U4A operations in Ghana locally through the cultivation of crops and raising of animals (pigs) is becoming brighter year after year. We are looking forward to a good turn around in 2017.
Remember to lift up these prayer needs before the Lord. Pray for:
- Thank God for a peaceful election in Ghana and pray for God’s direction for the new government.
- For strength and the leadership of the Holy Spirit as we try to scale up our Bridges trainings this year.
- God’s provision as the needs and challenges of our Early Childhood training centers continue to increase year after year.
- For the city of Tamale and its environs for receptive hearts towards the gospel as the Reinhard Bonnke’s Gospel Crusade takes place in the city early this year.
Yours in His Vineyard
