Ghana Update – September 2015 – Samson Abukari – Country Director
“All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”(Ephesians 2:3-5)
What a joy to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. We all were once ruled by our sinful nature but thankfully the love and mercy of God we are now victorious and alive in Jesus Christ. The grace of God is something that we have to cherish greatly for by it that we are who we are.
By the grace of God we were able to have training at the Gingani A/G Church. The training was an exciting one with lots of words of encouragement. Participants willingly shared how the principles of training. About 30 participants took part in the training.
Early Childhood Development Program
The Ghana Team have a passion for Early Childhood Training for children. As a result of this they have helped initiated two training centres for Early Childhood Training to assist children develop properly and get thoroughly equipped to become good citizens. This is a big task and they therefore, require some support from people who might be interested in the growth and development of children to partner with the Ghana Team in order to assist them make a lasting impact in the lives of these future leaders.
Samson led the career guidance sessions at the Ghana International Baptist Convention “GIBC” Mercy Academy. The Academy offered tuition and Christian values among others to over 200 Upper Primary and Junior High School students for three consecutive weeks. The sessions assisted the students to discover who they are in light of God’s creation and His desire for them to show forth His glory and excellence in whatever career they will later choose in life.
v Thank God for the students who took part in the Mercy Academy classes that the Holy Spirit will continue to work in their lives and draw them to God.
v Pray for the Early Childhood Program that strong and lasting partnership will emerge to boost the current work and bring about expansion.
v Pray for Gospel work Northern Ghana especially, for the penetration of the good news among the various people groups.
