Rejoicing in the Lord



Greetings everyone, 

We are continuing the ministry here in Ghana trying to be the hands and feet of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are so excited right now of how God is working around and through us here. Last week we were at the Jirandogo Center and had a great time of ministry.  

We have 36 leaders signed up for the 2 year Church Leaders Training Academy. Classes will begin August 19 and it is geared for the Church Leaders who have had very little schooling. Most can read Konkomba but they do not speak English so everything will be translated for them. English will be one of their subjects but the focus will be learning more about the Bible.

We also have constructed a bread oven to help some ladies fill a need and set some up in their own businesses. Now if we can make some Mango Jam, we should get a lot of missionaries to help us. :)

We had more than 170 women attend the ladies Bible Study again. They were taught English, were taught a Bible Lesson and given small first aid kits that Sherri and Kip had left. They were very appreciative.  

Randy and Suzy continue to go into villages and spend the day just loving on the people and telling them about Jesus. Suzy and Portia are spending a LOT of time with children and still getting some time with the ladies. Randy talks to whatever number of men that will talk with him, sharing Christ and answering questions people have. They are seeing salvations and being able to pray with people. I really don’t know if it is Randy and Suzy or the people that are enjoying the most. They do a great job.

We appreciate you, our partners, please keep praying and giving. You are making a difference. 

John 6:35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.

Looking good!!! No more stopping by Nyankpala for bread. I had actually thought about Seed Ministry owning its own bread oven considering the amount of bread we consume, hahaha!!! Keep up the good works, may the Lord continues to burden the hearts of His saints for the great works of the Lord, through the Lord, and for the Lord in Ghana.

Is it Sadic who built the bread oven? Sure looks like him.

Working In The Vineyard



Greetings,

What a great time we have had with part of the 2013 C.A.L. Graduating Class. They were able with their Project 2013 to come to Ghana and be part of our Ministry Center Dedication. They ministered to 400 children at a time wow what a great group. These guys all are getting ready to go off to colleges to further their Education. We thank them and praise God for their maturity in the Lord. They were great and a real blessing to a lot of Ghanaians and they gave me more hope that God will use many young Christian men and women to help turn America back to a Nation under God. Our generation has not done all that well; we seem to always be on the defense instead of the offense.

We also had a great couple that ministered with us from Hunsinger Lane Baptist Church, Kip and Sherri Selby. We enjoyed them so much as they shared, taught, dressed wounds, constructed bridges, painted buildings, and gave away Bibles and Benches. The list goes on. Whatever was needed they did. Thank you all and bless the fruits of your labor.

John 15- 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

Jirandogo Ministry Center Dedication



What a wonderful week we have had. Kip and Sherri from HLBC arrived on Saturday, the 5 young men from CAL, along with Randy and Suzy from SFBC arrived on Sunday and we immediately flew to Tamale. Early the next morning we were up and on the way to the Jirandogo Ministry Center.

Throughout the week, they ministered to many children in the schools and Bible Clubs and worked hard to paint the building and get everything ready for the Dedication. They all did an excellent job and the dedication was wonderful. In fact, the whole day was a day of ministry and astonishing surprises.

There were seventy-nine Pastors and Church Leaders that blessed us and prayed for the ministry at the Dedication.

Following that, the children were supposed to come at 2pm. Instead they began to come as the Pastors were leaving around 12:30. The team was right on top of it and did some short stories with them for a while then sent them back out until 2. This time they came and they came until there were about three hundred fifty of them! Again, the team was right on top of that and divided them up and everyone had a great time.

Meanwhile, the ladies of the community were supposed to come at 4pm to begin a Ladies Bible Study combined with them learning English and us learning Konkomba. Instead they began coming at 2:30. Thankfully some brought their own chairs and stools with them to sit on but still ended up with about thirty sitting on the floor. There were one hundred seventy-three of them total. They were funny and fun. We had such an enjoyable time with them!

We are now back in Tamale and the three groups have melded into one amazing team working together as if they had had months of planning together. They don’t miss a beat.

You all know our verse the Lord gave us from the beginning is Psalm 126:5. Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. Believe me, when you hear 173 women walking to their homes in the village singing I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, you really are reaping with JOY. God is truly Awesome!

Youth of Today



Sarah, Sara and Megan that were here for the month of June as Mission Interns have gone home and the CAL team has come and gone as well. What an impact they had on the schools and Bible Clubs. They were ready for about anything and they did excellent on all the traveling in a crowded bus and horrible roads. They did a great job ministering in so many villages. The leaders had them well prepared to be the hands and feet of Jesus. They were always ready with an amazing Bible story and they saw a LOT of children. There were many children who accepted Jesus as their personal Savior and many learned more about Him. We are so thankful they came. I am so encouraged that this is the new remnant that God is raising up for His Kingdom. Parents you can be proud, God was glorified through these teams.

I've Seen It All?



Greetings Everyone,

I have been making some new, old friends at the Jirandogo site. This old farmer came over to greet and sit in the shade for a while. It was good to hear him share things in his culture and family. Ministry is all about building relationships no matter which side of the world you live on.

Every time I think I have seen it all something happens to prove I have more to see…

            I heard a loud noise Wednesday afternoon; it was a cow which had gotten loose and making a lot of noise. People were chasing it and it ran into my fence and got knocked down. The men that were chasing it tried to get it up to make it move but it just laid there. They beat it then tugged and pulled on it to no avail - it would not move.

Then one of the men pointed to a man coming and said, “Here he comes, he will know what to do.

This old fellow came and started twisting the tail and twisting the tail tighter and tighter. Well it made the cow very uncomfortable, but it would still not get up.

Then it happened - the man put the cow’s tail where it was twisted into his mouth and bit down! The cow made a loud sound, jumped up and was very angry like she was looking around saying, “Which one of you bit me?”

I busted out laughing and had to walk away . Emmanuel was gone to a village and I could not wait to tell him this funny story that happened while he was gone.

When he returned, I told him, “I saw a man bite a cow’s tail to make him get up. Is that not the funniest thing?”

 He said, “We do that all the time but it makes them very angry.”  

This was my first time to see this – what is possibly left to see?     Bob
