“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit – fruit that will last….”. (John 15:16)
Progress is very necessary in life and if it is not happening then, all those desiring transforming will be disturbed about the situation.
Leadership has continued to be the most needed commodity across the globe both inside and outside the Church. The periodic equipping of Pastors and Church leaders has been of great help to the participants and the body of Christ at large. A participant praised the program and said “if many more Pastors and Church leaders can submit to such trainings the Church will be able to accomplish great things”
GRADUATION OF CHURCH PLANTERS AND DISCIPLE MAKERS
Most of the training centres across the regions have come to the end of their training and have organised graduation ceremonies for their trainees. In all the ceremonies trainees have been challenged to progress to the next level of leadership as we seek to raise movement leaders in Ghana and beyond.
The goats project has been seen as something that is contributing to the dignity and transformation of individuals and families at large much more than what those implementing it might ever think. Beneficiaries of the project will always express their appreciation based on the kind of empowerment they have received through the project. An elderly woman whose grandson benefited from the project keeps praying for the donors. She said she didn’t know what the outcome would have been without the goats. My grandson would have stopped school. On behalf of all the beneficiaries I say thank you to all U4A partners who made it possible.
SEED OF HOPE BROADCAST
The program continues to offer hope to the listeners which keeps increasing day after day. Sometimes people call in and when asked they are actually calling from areas that the radio station staff never thought they get a signal of their broadcast. Lives are being transformed through the broadcast and week after week people call in to testify that by listening to the program hope has been restored to them. A man whose marriage has had so much challenge as a result of their inability to have children called in and said he thinks the program was designed for him and he is grateful for the hope that has been offered him through it.
Samson was the guest speaker on a local television network sharing the word of God and helping viewers understand that the word of God has the power to bring about hope to world that is struggling with moral decadence. The host lamented the current trend where it appears as if nobody cares about where our world is going and whether there is any hope at all. In the course of the program several people sent in messages and this is what one of them said, “I am not a Christian but I must confess that these are the kind of messages that can shape our society. May God continue to give wisdom to do more.”
• Pray for Samson as he participates in Trainers’ conference in Togo.
• Praise God for the goats project and ask that there will be multiplication to greatly benefit the beneficiaries.
• Honor the Name of the Lord for the radio broadcast and pray for the move of the Holy Spirit through the broadcast.
• Pray for the new work to add new training centers for the church planting and disciple making training across Ghana.
Yours in His Vineyard
