Things Wear Out



Greetings from Tamale,

It has been a great week getting things geared up to pour foundations for church buildings.

I went to Buipei on Tuesday to pull the Soul Searcher home for a make over. It has done well on the Black Volta working among the Gonja Tribe. The weather and the use of it has taken a toll on it of course, but a little paint, some welding, a new deck, and 2 new tires and it will be ready to go on its next voyage.

Wednesday we had a prayer service as the cornerstone was laid for the new church building at Kpana followed by a visit to the Sagnarigu Church.

Then Saturday we had 64 Club Leaders present at our Wale Wale Area meeting and it was very exciting to hear the number of kids and teens getting saved and moving through the Bible Clubs to the Church. Praise God for that.

Of course everyone wanted Footballs and Toffees for their Clubs and we try to give out as much as we can. I wonder why they need new footballs?  Bob

Gushegu Training



 

Hi All,

Greetings from Tamale. We are loving our time back seeing everybody and hearing testimonies about how God is working. We had a great time last weekend with 47 Bible Club Leaders here in Tamale. We got to spend some time with them and it was great. Bonnie and I really enjoyed teaching together again; it has been a while.

Then Sunday I preached at Trinity Church and we had a great time of worship. Tuesday we headed up to the Gushegu Training Center to meet with Matthew and 31 Bible Club Leaders. It is not easy for them to come to training but they will walk or ride their bicycle for many miles to hear God’s word.

We are now back in Tamale today and are expecting 50 to 60 Club Leaders from the Nyankpala Area tonight and tomorrow Saturday.

Keep us in your prayers that God will be Glorified and Honored in our lives. That Jesus will be lifted up and people will come to know Him. Pray that the Holy Spirit will be released in Ghana and the U.S. We need Him desperately. In Jesus Name. Bob

Hi Bob & Bonnie! I was asked by Freedom Christian Church to get an update on how the building of the church is going there. Any news? God bless.

Home From Salaga


 

Thanks for all your prayers and comments about our trip to Salaga. You see, we did survive as God most definitely knew we would. We had a great time of fellowship the next morning laughing with Thomas and Emmanuel about their perception of the experience. Then we were back out in the villages and made a long day of it and drove back to Tamale instead of spending a second night out.

What a great time we had with meeting with a lot of the Bible Club Leaders and heard testimonies about their clubs. Some reported that the number of children were dropping while others were increasing. Of course there is always the issues of parents sending their children to work in the fields or other errands like getting the water, etc. Since most of these parents are not Christians and even the ones that are, don’t always see the benefit of the Bible Club. Yet in the Testimonies we heard several say that there is definitely a difference in the children that are coming to the Bible Club. Even visiting school officials were commenting on it to some of the Club Leaders.

The best thing is that they are seeing children coming into the church and even some of their families have joined them. And that is what it is all about – being a part of God’s growing Kingdom!

You Have To Appreciate God In This...


 

You have to appreciate God in this….

      Here we are sitting in a Guest House in Salaga, hot and tired after being in villages meeting with Bible Club Leaders all day. There is no water, the electricity is so weak that the air conditioner won’t run, the fan comes and goes, sometimes getting fast enough that it sounds like an airboat, and the light bulb is about 20 watts. Then all the power goes off.

      What are we doing? Preparing to teach next week the Bible Club Leaders on “Changing Our Attitudes from Complaining to Thankfulness and Covetousness to Contentment”!

       So Lord, when I am whining for the ac to come on and the water truck to get here so we can bathe to help cool us down, please don’t think that I am complaining or coveting more… because I am really so thankful to be right where I am in this place, this minute that I would not trade it for all the ac in the world. Bonnie

Count your blessings Bob. It was 9 degrees last night at my house in Louisville! All that heat is looking pretty good from where I sit.

As always, I stand amazed at your commitment to our Lord! May he bless you with ac & water now! :-)

Jamis and I would probably trade our near zero Kentucky weather for your dusty, hot, and airconditionless time in Salaga. However, we, too, are learning to be content. I will say that my African son is definitely NOT a complainer, and I am trying to always be thankful.

LoL. Gotta love how gracious God is in giving us life experiences to help us in teaching others and reminding us at the same time of the lesson. Keeps us humble and keeps us real so that we can relate to the needs of others. Thats gotta be grace. Love you guys!!

wow, God can really get the point across, can't he? It did make me laugh, sorry. I'd be such a big baby, if it were me there. You make us all proud.

Good Day, Great God



 

Hi Everyone ,

     Hope all is well. The New Year is getting older but the folks here are still wishing all a Happy New Year.  We have had so many friends come and greet and pray for us and our health and the ministry that it has been amazing, humbling and such a blessing.

    We have traveled to Kpendua and Galenshegu today and had a great service. Two new people gave their lives to Christ. The chief of Galenshegu, someone that a lot of people from the US have met, lost a sister that was a member of Galenshegu church. We met and prayed with them before church. The new vehicle smoothed the roads out for us and I was not so tired at all when we got home.

  We started buying building material for the new church buildings and will try to get a lot done in these next 4 months before the rains come. We are leaving Tuesday for some time with the Salaga Bible Club Leaders and Pastors. Please pray for our safety and that we accomplish a lot in our time there.
