Ghana Update – July 2014 – Samson Abukari U4A Country Director, Ghana
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Matthew 8:28 – ESV)
We join the songwriter in saying “that to God be the glory!” We also praise Him for all the great things he has done for us this month. It is our prayer and belief that our God will continue to extend his love unto us day after day. That is why we trust that all things work together for the good of those who are called even when we do not have answers to situations that come our way.
Both Samson and Isaac enrolled for classes at Hope Bible College. They are set to be equipped with the word of God. To be more effective in the leadership roles they serve in, now and in the future.
Visit to Shehu Moomin
The U4A team in Ghana, by way of appreciation and building relationship, visited Shehu Moomin a Muslim scholar in Tamale. This was to appreciate him for accepting to receive the U4A/SIU film crew which took part in the making of a short film on the power of storytelling and the strength of mercy. It was a great joy and solemn moment and we hope to have a continued relationship.
Passing on to Glory
God took away the uncle of Samson Abukari to eternity in the latter part of June 2014. Staff and friends of U4A have been praying for him for the past several months, but the Lord deemed it good to take him to rest in his bosom.
U4A Team Meeting
The Team met in the first week of June to discuss ways by which operations of U4A could be strengthened. It was a fruitful meeting with discussions centering on the identification of alternative sustainable projects. These ideas in conjunction with the one sent earlier this year to U4A USA, once approved and funded, will help financially support the activities to be carried in Ghana.
♥ Ask God for the grace to implement the identified means by which activities can continue in the wake of little resources
♥ Comfort for Samson Abukari’s immediate and extended families as they contend with the death of his uncle at this moment
♥ U4A team to continue to rely on God for wisdom as they look forward to doing effective work of the ministry
♥ Pray for farmers in our communities for God’s favor as they embark on their farming activities
Yours in His Vineyard
(Country Director, Ghana)
