South Fork Team and Jesse



Greetings everyone,

We are having a great time at the Church Leaders Training Academy (CLTA).  We finished another week of intense Bible Study and training with 36 students. Pastor Jonathan Carl challenged the students in many areas of the Bible and they were very encouraged.

The team from South Fork was great; well prepared and flexible. When the rains caused the roads to be so bad the bus could not get there, the team rode on the back of pickups in rain and hot sun and red dust for long distances and never complained. They went to many schools and villages and were able to minister to both children and adults, had many decisions and saw lots of smiles on children’s faces as they gave out items they brought with them. What a blessing they were and they brought a little bit of home to us here.

The Boagban Church dedication was a great time of worship. In appreciation the church provided us with gifts of Yams and a big Turkey which gave us an early Thanksgiving Day dinner.

Randy and Suzanne H. went home with their team after an extended three month stay at Seed Ministry. They did much to help so many people while they were here. They were able to share and see many people come to know Christ.

Meanwhile, back in Tamale,

  • Jesse and John continue recording the God Story in another language. Please continue to pray for Jesse’s vision of all the languages in Ghana having the God Story. It is not always easy getting the teams from each language who can translate and record. Jesse does a great job exhibiting patience and God’s love as he presses on.

 

  • Thomas has held another Foundation Training and trained 23 new Bible Club leaders and helpers in the Tamale and Nyankpala areas.

 

  • Emmanuel continues to oversee the daily activities and business needs of the ministry.

 

       We are waiting for John H. to arrive and we are hoping he will have some insight on why our well water has become dirty in Jirandogo. When we get back there we will be firing up the bread oven for the first time, installing a water purifier, and we are still working on finishing the wall and the other 2 room dorm as soon as we can.

      Hope you each have a blessed week. Bob & Bonnie

We love it when the environment changes but the ministry doesn't. Way to go South Fork folks. A bunch of rain and dirt didn't stop you all!

All sounds great, except the dirty water. God bless the work, and the workers!

Greetings From Jirandogo



Greetings From Jirandogo,

We are seeing blessing after blessing. Larry and Jay were with us in Jirandogo all the way from Florida leading a Pastors Conference. Seventy-four pastors total registered with sixty-six of them meeting the requirements for their certificates. Everyone enjoyed their teaching and it rained just enough to keep the temperature cool most days but not enough to keep the pastors from coming.

Then Friday Bonnie had the Ladies for class and I had the Children. Bonnie worked on English and the book of Mark with the ladies. I worked on teaching the children to tell time and it was a lot of fun. We finished out the afternoon with the how to be Obedient to God using the story of Abraham. We closed with some games of Duck-duck Guiana Fowl - OK you had to be there. 

Here is our God story for the week… He is always so faithful. First of all, the well is working and we have water but don’t have the purifier installed yet so we are buying bottled water and the pure water sachets that are commonly sold here. Being in a village they don’t stock as many as we actually need; plus there were 6 funerals going on in surrounding villages. That meant searching further was futile. Then, there we are eating supper one night when Christopher knocked on the door to tell us there was a truck at the gate selling water sachets and said he would give us his phone number and he will deliver them anytime we want them! And just to add one more topping to that – the price is half price to what we were paying!!! Isn’t that just like God to meet our needs at half the price?!!!!

Meanwhile, back in Tamale, Randy and Suzy continued going into Bible Club communities visiting and sharing the Word with everyone who will listen. Praise God for their boldness as they share. They have been able to talk to so many people and the message has gone far and wide due to their faithfulness to go. Randy claims he is “only a farmer” but he can sure take the message out in such a simple, down home way that everyone wants to listen. And Suzy has such a servant’s heart always teaching and loving on people. They truly are a blessing.

Jesse has arrived to have the God’s Story translated into more languages. His pastors are arriving in teams of two and, along with John, should be translating and recording two to three languages in just over a week followed by more the next week. Another amazing work of God.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness.



Remember the old song that said, “What a day for a daydream”? What about a day for living your dream? I think that is most everyday for us as we minister in Ghana. Every morning is fresh with excitement about what the Lord is going to do today.

We praise Him as we watch Him work. Already this week – and today is only Tuesday –

  • We have seen Him baptize 27 people.
  • Suzy is finally feeling better again and going with Randy into villages to share Christ with others.
  • Peter is packing to prepare to leave for University.
  • We are buying and preparing food to feed the anticipated one hundred pastors for Larry and Jay as they come Sunday to lead the Jirandogo Pastors Conference next week and then the Wale-Wale Pastors Conference the following week.
  • Getting the ‘sound rooms’ set up in preparation for Jesse to pick up on the recordings. That in itself is another praise. God gave Jesse the vision to  record “The God’s Story” in all 86 (I think) Ghanaian languages. He was telling us he only has 18 left to record! What a blessing these recordings are and what a praise to God that Jesse and the translators have persevered and given so much of their time to do this.
  • There is also the general buzz in the air as students prepare to start classes again this week.
  • Of course one of our biggest praises is you. As you read this know that we praise God for you all the time. It is your support and your prayers before the Lord for us that allow us to be a part of all this.

Our praises just go on and on. I know you have as many or more things that you are praising for as well. So when you read this, lift up a THANK YOU to God. His mercy and His grace says it all.

 

Lamentations 3:22-23 22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Church Leaders Training Academy



We have finished the first week of the Church Leaders Training Academy! It was very successful in terms of the number of students and their participation. We were planning on having a class of 30 but allowed 5 more to come so we have 35 registered. Some cannot read at all; some can read Konkomba; some can read English – really at all levels so everyone is working together to teach each other. We all had a great time with it.

Bob taught on Church History and ‘Christian Character in Everyday Living’ in the Victorious Christian Living class.

Bonnie taught about how God gave us the Bible, using the Bible to interpret the Bible and the importance of including it in our lives everyday.

Suzy taught English using the book of Mark. This was possibly their favorite class! Those that don’t know English are very excited to be learning and those that cannot read are very excited to be learning to read.

Randy finished up the day with an Evangelism class. He taught them using ‘storying’ with the Picture Cloth to give them some ideas on stories they can easily share with others.

ALSO – on a different note – 14 MORE BARRELS HAVE ARRIVED!!! Praise the Lord. We have three completely full of toys, two with clothes, another with shoes, bags and miscellaneous (peanut butter pretzels for Bob and nuts for Bonnie :-) ),  four with back packs, three with school supplies, and now that their trip is about half gone, one Randy & Suzy shipped for their trip.  Can hardly wait to get these to the Area Leaders. TALK ABOUT THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING! You are blessed to be able to give; Area Leaders are blessed to receive them and for them to be able to give them to the Club Leaders for them to give to the Bible Club Children.  Thank you so much.

Anticipation and Expectations



This week is all about anticipation and expectations…

  • Randy and Suzy continue to go out everyday for some very long days of sharing Christ to everyone that will listen. They go expecting God to bring more into the Kingdom and have yet to be disappointed.
  • Each day Emmanuel has been in touch with the folks about when the barrel shipment can be picked up and each day has been told that maybe tomorrow. We know tomorrow never comes so we are waiting for it to be today!
  • We have received some of the harvest from the land that was plowed for the farmers. Now some Pastors and others have food in their homes until their crops are harvested.
  • We are honored to have received an invitation from the Presbyterian Church of Ghana to come to their National Conference to receive an award as one of their long term partners.
  • We have been getting things packed and ready to go to Jirandogo and getting everything set up for the official opening of the Seed Ministry Church Leader Training Academy!
  • There are 41 young and not so young men registered and more than half of those will be housed on our site. That means that not only will the Word be taught to feed spiritually, but there will be a LOT of cooking to be feeding them physically as well.
  • We are excited to be able to do this, but a big part of the excitement is their excitement about the possibility of attending.
  • Thank you so much to those of you that are coming and have agreed to be part of the teaching team.
  • Thank you to each of you that have given specifically for the Jirandogo needs, the barrels or other specific needs.
  • Thank you for those of you who so faithfully give every month to meet the needs of Seed Ministry in Ghana.
  • Most of all, thank you for always praying for Seed Ministry!
