“Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.” (James 5:7) NIV)
In an era of fast everything, the Church will have to be different and be patient when it comes to matters of helping people grow in the Lord. Just like the farmer, we need patience to see some of our labour produce the desired fruits. It is not easy to wait but indeed, it pays to wait especially, when we have to depend solely on the Lord and His timing.
Discipleship and Leaders Training
Samson led some Pastors for a continued discipleship and leaders training for the members of the church plant that was done at the “overseas” area in 2016. This is to help them in their walk with the Lord as well as offer leadership for the body of believers of the area.
Faithful Friends in church
These two faithful friends have always been present anytime we visit the “overseas” area for any evangelistic activities. They need our prayer and physical support. Both of them need wheel chairs as one’s own is completely unusable and the other is not in good condition.
The Ghana team of Unite 4 Africa had a meeting to discuss issues of operations and activities that will promote the activities of the mission. Key in the discussion was scaling up training to meet the target for 2017 and a smooth implementation of the animal distribution for orphans.
Preparation for animal Distribution
With lessons from the previous implementation of the orphan’s project, the Ghana Team met and put in place strategies that will help them to ensure that the U4A partnership with the Pantano Church offers hope to orphans and gives them a future filled with the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
- Pray for Muslims in Northern Ghana and around the world to encounter the Lord Jesus Christ as they embark upon their annual fasting.
- Pray that all new believers will continue to learn to imitate Jesus through intentional discipleship efforts.
- Pray for the raising of effective servant-leaders for the Church of Jesus Christ.
- Pray for farmers over here in Ghana who are beginning a new farming season and that their efforts will blessed with good yields.
Yours in His Vineyard,
