“The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.” (1Timothy 4:1-2)
Sound doctrine now much needed than ever. The need for disciple making in our era cannot be over emphasized. So many wrong teachings abound and that can easily be corrected if Believers can return to the basics of scripture.
GRADUATION OF CHURCH PLANTERS
Over 100 Church planters and disciple makers have successfully completed the two year training cycle and several graduations conducted across the different training centres in the country to the glory of God. These are not just celebrations of completion of a program but also a celebration of souls being won into the Kingdom as the training is practically oriented with the sharing of Christ as an integral part of the training.
SEED OF HOPE BROADCAST LISTENERS
One of the things we cherish so much with the Seed of Hope broadcast is feedback. This gives us hope that lives are impacted and the investment into the broadcast is beneficial. It was a great encouragement to be approached by someone I don’t know and have never met who said “I am told you are the one God has used to bless us through the weekly radio broadcast. I just want you to know that some of us have experienced an appreciable level of growth as a result of the broadcast. I must say that the time of the broadcast is a sacred period in our house.” I, Samson, need to add that not even the owners of the radio station are aware that there their frequency goes that far from the point of broadcast. I had the privilege of meeting he and his daughter.
The joy of seeing hope return to a family which was once devastated and all hope gone without any thought of things ever changing in the positive is what is witnessed with the goats’ project. Children who have been denied an opportunity for formal education are now having in their hands seeds that have the potential to grow and be a backbone for their education. We have seen stories of children who received just one goat and move to multiple goats through expansion to owning sheep and through which their educational needs are met. Thanks to the partners of U4A.
LAUNCHING OF NEW WORK
Two regions in northern Ghana are going to be added to the existing regions where we already have church planting training centres. We are looking forward to having 200 training centres with a projection of not less than 3000 trainees. Vision casting has been held in these regions to begin the process.
- Thank God for the travelling mercies to the various graduations of Church planters across Ghana.
- Pray for the new training cycle of Church planters and Disciple makers and the launch of new work in Ghana.
- Continue to praise the Lord for the radio broadcast and pray for the move of the Holy Spirit through the broadcast to save and build up souls in the Lord.
- Pray for the leaders of the West Africa Sub-Region that God will raise leaders after his own heart for peace to reign in the region.
Yours in His Vineyard
