Return To Ghana 2015



Back in Ghana again after saying 'Good-Bye'  to Mason, our first great grandchild!! It was wonderful to spend so much time with family and friends but it is really good to be back. I realize that we were very lazy sending out updates while we were there even though the work was going on while we were gone. So we wanted to shout out a quick catch up. Thought about numbering these in some sort of order but what among these could be counted as first and what would be last? They are all such high praises to God!

Our travel back was by far the smoothest trip we have ever taken. Exactly 28 hours from the time we walked out our door in Elizabeth to the time we walked into the door in Tamale – with all of our luggage!!!! Remarkable. Did not have to spend the night in Accra…got off the plane…walked to the domestic side…waited about 3 hours…loaded the plane and slept 1-1/2 hours to land in Tamale.

Emmanuel has done an excellent job overseeing everything. The compound looks great thanks to Thomas A., Jesse, and Moses.  The house and Guest House are clean and very inviting thanks to Gladys, Ajua and Cecilia.

The hugs from Dorcas, Mercy, Jessica and Prosper were so sweet.

Everything had been kept secured by Mr. Hoodoo and Baba. It is good to be back.

We were able to have a staff meeting yesterday and hear some of the reporting which was, for the most part, all good. A little disappointed to hear that some of the CLTA students stopped coming until we return but those that did attend have done very well in their studies.

Josheph had good reports from the Bible Clubs with an AMAZING report from one…they are no longer going to be a Seed Ministry Bible Club because they want to ‘belong’ to their church!!! Hallelujah!!!! This has been a long time coming for the churches to take ownership of the Clubs. I am sure this has much to do with the guidance of Paul, the Area Leader.

All of the Area Leaders are trying hard to visit with the Pastors so they and the church will feel a part of the Bible Club. We look forward to hearing more from them as soon as we are able to schedule a meeting.

Thomas, John and Jonathan left early morning for Gushegu for CLTA. We will follow them later in the week. Then on Monday classes will start in Jirandogo.

Had a church bring candidates for baptism yesterday and two more churches today! 49 New Believers!!!! Praise the Lord!! That is 243 baptisms this year to date. Last year a total of 517. God is working through the churches in Ghana!

Glad to hear your trip was without incidence. Great to hear a good report. How is the weather? Has the Hama tan started yet?
What about the Dumsor? Do you have generators to help during services?
Glad you are back to your field of work.
May God Richly bless you all.
