Ghana Updates – February 2023
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. (1Peter 1:18-19)
Yes, it was with the precious blood of Christ that was used to redeem us from our past and we can only cherish this wonderful sacrifice of a lamb without blemish or defect. What a love from a loving Lord! May as many who still are not yet enjoying this gift accept it and its full benefit. Amen
The Seed of Hope Broadcast has continued to reach out to lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ every week. Week after week listeners are expressing gratitude for the program and how they are blessed through the broadcast. Recently a listener said “When I am listening to your Pastor on the Radio program sometimes I feel like something has fallen on me and my whole body begins to experience some calmness.”
Efforts are made to engage the youth periodically to ensure that some basic leadership lessons are shared and opportunity given for interaction to allow them to ask questions on what the youth of today, especially the Christian Youth, can do to lead like Christ even in at a time when it looks like hope is lost.
Economic Empowerment Seminar
Economic empowerment is an area most people have ignored or paid little attention to especially in the church. Our short time together revealed that it is one of the areas that leaders can maximize to cause a change in thinking which can lead to a renewal of the mind and eventually bring about transformation.
Church Planting and Disciple Making
Samson continues to lead the Church Planting and Disciple Making training centers across Northern Ghana. So far the Lord has been blessing the efforts of the leaders and some encouraging results are being recorded to the glory of God
• Pray for the peace of God to reign in some communities experiencing communal disagreements in Northern Ghana.
• Continue to thank God for the Seed of Hope Radio Broadcast and ask that the Holy Spirit will continue to use it as a tool to touch lives for the Lord.
• Pray that the ongoing Church planting and discipleship training will continue to yield the needed results.
Yours in His Vineyard
