MISSIONS MINISTRY, ACCRA, GHANA.

PERIOD:
JULY, AUGUST & SEPTEMBER 2019.

Grace and greetings from
the family of God in Yendi and Tatale areas of the northern region. We are all
doing well and thanking God. This quarter is full of farming activities which
has just paused in September and will commence effectively at the end of October
with harvesting. Even though the rain pattern was not very good as there was a serious
draught in August that affected many crops, we still hope that the lord will
take care of His children.

INTRODUCTION:

In this report, we have
categorized it into reach in, reach out and reach up. In the reach in are:
personal studies and baptism by Thomas, evangelism in church school in Tatale,
benevolence in Tatale church, campus ministry in Yendi Senior High led by Paul,
visits by Paul, visits by Daniel, visits by David, visits by Yabdow, funeral at
Nanjingni (Nanjuni), clean up exercise in Yashegu organized by the church,
youth program in Yendi church, officiating of wedding in Bakpaba and church
farms.

Whereas in the reach out
are: impact of church school in Yendi, mobile clinic in Kpanjamba, mobile

in Kumasi. And finally, the reach up contains: fasting and prayer in Gnani,
fasting and prayer in Makayili lead by David, Friday prayers in Yendi church
and the regular fasting and prayer in Tatale. The rest are baptism, challenges
and conclusion.

REACH IN:

Thomas
studied with four prospects in this quarter. They are Banjirn Adamu, Besienbila
Danah, Bismark Danah and N-modow Nchaji. Two (Banjirn Adamu and Besienbila
Danah) of them were baptized on the 21th September, 2019, into the lords Church at Sanguli. Also, five
(5) young people were baptized in Tatale church in July. They are all students.

Thomas is
continuing with the teaching in the church primary and junior high schools on
every Monday from 8:30am to 9:30. This is a continues program. With the intake
of the year ones, Thomas is laying his foundation on “Who is God”with the
students. He visited Bekpajab, Nborlado, Jomoni, Lagbani, Kpassan and
Sanguli. In Kpassan, Mr. Jacob N-tifuni and his wife Afia were
restored .

The church in
Tatale contributed yams to support two nurses who are newly posted to the
district. There are Sister Love, a midwife, and Sister Leticia. They are both
from Kumasi and members of the church. They did this as part of the church
responsibility.

These days the campus
ministry is continues with the introduction of the double track system in
second cycle schools. With the campus executives sometimes on holidays, it has
become difficult to organize church members on the school compound. The president
and secretary sometimes have to come back from holidays before activities are
carried out effectively. Paul has been with them at their place of worship in
this semester. He has visited two of the rural congregations with the campus
president to introduce him to evangelism. The congregations outside Yendi are
usually happy when they see a student church member with them.

In all the congregations
Paul visited, he met the church leaders on three (3) issues; the congregation
farms, the women’s camp in Tamale from Thursday, 24th October, 2019
to Sunday, 27th October 2019 and church attendance which has been
poor during the rainy season.

Bro. Moses Ilaka and Paul
visited Bro. Joseph Kumasi in Machelayili (Nalogni) after a joint service at
Sobitido. The church leader looked well
except that he could not lift his right hand and leg. They prayed for him and
proceeded home. He also visited sister Monica in Yingsala with two students
from Yendi Senior High School. Monica is a student from the senior high who was
sick. They sent her to church and prayed for her. Paul and his wife visited
Niligrini Rebecca in Yendi hospital and prayed for her before leaving.

Sunday worship has been regular
and smooth this quarter despite the rains. Paul has been able to visit
all the congregations in his area. Some of them had joint services. Baachabordo,
Nalogni and Jagrido congregations occasionally have morning devotions and
evening worship. With Baachabordo this has been an old practice. Paul has encouraged the other congregations to emulate
the example of the Baachabordo congregation.

Daniel also took time to visit some members and church farms in
his area. He and Gnani church planted the church soya beans farm on 20th
July. Daniel on some occasions handed the pulpit
to some of the church leaders due to his ill health. He was admitted for three
(3) days in Tamale on the 29th July at a private hospital. He is now doing well and
fully back to the church work.

Daniel and Simon Kunban led a joint service of
Kpassani and Nanjuni congregations on the 25th August. He also
participated in the youth program in Yendi as his area youth were also there.
He showed up to motivate the youth under his working area.

David visited: Yingsala,
Nabila, Kpasani Nanjuni, Yingsala, Timokando, Wamgbung, Wapuli and Timulkando.
Due to the rains, he could not reach Bonduli and Frigmado. The are streams that
were flooded and unsafe to pass. He however is praying to reach them when the
waters go out. All the congregations he visited were all doing well.

On 14 July, 2019 David visited Nanjungni
(Nanjingni) for service after which he named Bennie Solomon Tagben. It did not take long when the child’s father
past away leaving seven (7) children behind
in addition to the widow. We need your prayers for them.

In
this quarter, Yabdow visited: Andodo, Yingsala, Frigmado, Kpalisogni, Yashegu,
Kpanjemba, Kuga, Gbungaliga and Yendi church.

On
11th September, the church lost a brother, Tagben Solomon, in Nanjingni church. Paul did the committals, David
preached and Daniel led the programs as the MC. The funerals was performed on
the 28th of September. Sister congregations and denominations were
invited. Yabdow, Paul, Daniel and David went and led in the final funeral. Yabdow did the preaching while Paul, David and
Daniel helped in other areas. Hundreds of people gathered, including
denominational churches, their pastors and some politicians from Yendi.

On
the 20th of September we organized a cleanup excises in Yashegu
church of Christ, all members of the church came out with cutlasses and clear
all bushes in the village. This prompted the denominational churches in the village to joined the church
of Christ for the excise. After the excise, we visited the chief and he
commended the church for the good work
initiated. They appreciated the care given to the community.

Yendi church organized three
days lectureship for the youth and invited two preachers from Accra to teach.
They were preachers Isaac Desmond Donkoh and Cornelius along with preacher
Isaac’s wife, Gifty Donkoh. Total attendance was 202. The intention of the
church is to make it an annual program. We thank God for his mercies. It was on
the 29th of August to 1st of September 2019. It was an
exciting program as the church housed them in Yendi. Topics were: Carrier
Awareness, Commitment to Christian Faith, Sex education and Biblical Principles
of wealth Making”. The aim was to help the youth decide what courses the need
to study in school reach their dream jobs in the future, committing the
christian faith into their hands, curbed the youth in their sex lives and
making decent money as many youngsters are involved in fraudulent behaviors
both in and out of Ghana. Participating congratulations were made up of twenty
(20), comprising Wambung, Kpassani, Yashegu, Gbungbalga, D.C. Kura, Jagrido,
Nyankpani, Kpanjamba, Nakpachei, Frigmado, Nanjuni, Nalogni, Gnani,
Kpalgigbuni, Duuni, Sakpei, Bakpaba, Kpalsogni, Andodo and Yendi. Total
participation was 202.

David,
Yabdow and Andrews were in Bakpaba on the 7th of August to officiate
a wedding between Ruth Bichome and and Solomon Yaw Bimokti. It went well. Yabdow
did the officiating and preaching while Andrews presented a graphic
illustration on successful marriage using the local hearth made of three stones
and a pot to tell the audience the need for marriages to depend on God, the man
and the woman. He said if the three stones stood well, with the pot sitting on
it in balance, they can attract God’s blessings in the marriage that will never
leak. It attracted the attention of the audience and ended in joy. We are
wishing the couple a happy godly marriage in Jesus name, Amen.

Church farms Bro. Kent and
family supported is promising. A number of the farms are visited by the
evangelists as a follow up and its promising. However a few of the
congregations farms are not very good due to poor germination. This happened
when the planting coincided with heavy rains or draught. Its not a total lost
except that we may not have the highest yield.

Paul visited all the church
farms within his area. They were: Diisikuraa (D. C. Kuraa), Kanimo, Kanimo,
Machelayili, Sobitido, Baachabordo and Jagrido. All the farms were promising.

REACH OUT:

The Church school is doing
well as far as academic work and discipline are concerned. The school vacated
for the Third Term on Thursday, 1st August and resumed on Tuesday,
10th September. Paul met the staff of the school on Monday, 26th
July to brief them on a workshop he attended on “Child Rights”. The school had
three staff meetings again; one with the Junior High School (J.H.S.) on
Tuesday, 30th July, a second with the Primary School on Wednesday,
31st July and, a third one with both the J.H.S. and the Primary
School on Thursday, 1st August, 2019 before vacating the school.

On Saturday, 3rd
August, 2019, the School Board of Governors met to discuss important issues of
the school. On Monday, 5th August, the Board met the Head-preacher,
Brother Andrews, to share our decisions concerning the school with him. It was
a fruitful discussion.

The Primary School teachers
attended a five-day workshop on the new basic school curriculum from Monday, 26th
August, 2019 to Friday, 30th August, 2019. It was a successful one.
They were issued with certificates of participation. The teachers were eight in
number excluding Paul.

The month of September had
also seen a string of meetings. The first staff meeting for the term took place
on Wednesday, 12th September, 2019. All teachers were present at the
Primary school. Paul met the J.H.S. staff on Friday, 2019.

The school Board met the
parents of the out-going basic six pupils to persuade them to send their
wards/children to the Church J.H.S. Though not all parents attended the
meeting, the exercise was successful. We have all our basic six pupils
attending the Church J.H.S.

On Wednesday, 18th
September, 2019, the Board was to meet but could not form a quorum. The meeting
was therefore postponed to the following day 19th September,
2019. The meeting came on as scheduled
and a number of issues were discussed including meeting the school
Parent-Teacher Association (P.T.A.) Executive Board. The School Board met the
P.T.A. Chairman on Wednesday, 25th September, 2019 and a date was
fixed for a general P.T.A. meeting. Our problem remains the lack of financial
and material support.

The
Clinic in connection with the preachers organized one day health screening
education and public preaching in Kpanjemba on the 13th September
2019. One hundred and one (101) people
were screened. Twenty one (21) out of those who had malaria were treated, two
(2) had high blood pressure and were referred to the clinic for BP drugs and
constant checkup. It is the plan of the clinic and preachers to promote Christ
through health care in the rural areas for the growth of the kingdom of God. As
a follow up, Yabdow and Yussif Sualeisu, clinic HR, on the 15th of September 2019
visited the community. The church was
full to capacity and after service, seven souls were added to the Lords church.
May His name be praised. The preachers with the clinic are requesting financial
assistance to continue this program in other sister congregations/communities
since the clinic is not in a good financial ground to shoulder this
responsibility. If it could be done at least once in a quarter that would have
be helpful to the ministry.

Through
Bro. Tom Carr, the church of Christ Mission health Centre on the September 26th
had a mobile clinic at the Yendi government prisons. One Hundred and Ninety one
(191) inmates were screened and treated. Some medicines were left for their infirmary to
support future treatment of the inmates.

The
elders of Bomso church in Kumasi were in Yendi to work in the rural
congregations with the preachers. Andrews was with them in all the rounds they
did. Some of the communities visited were Bimbilla, Makayili, Lipusi,
Kakpeyili, Bakpaba, Duuni and Gbungbaliga. The team wanted to put up a church
building in Bimbilla but there was a challenge on the land. The traditional
authorities who own the land said those who sold the land to the church were
not the rightful owners hence the church cannot build on it. When we did a
follow up, it was confirmed to be true. Andrews on a second visit on 20th
August, however pleaded with the gate that sold the land to church, yet did not
own it, to replace the land with any other land anywhere in Bimbilla town. He
paid for a new land on which the church will be built. This fund was provided
by the Bomso church so as to fix a symbol of Christ in the Bimbilla township.

The elders visited Lipusi
and Kakpeyili to inspect church buildings that were already funded to roofing
levels. Inspection of the building in Makayili was done and funds for the
roofing immediately provided. As at now, the Makayili building is also roofed.
They proceeded to Bakpaba to see a church building put up by the church to
roofing level but cannot be continued due to finances. Upon the inspection of
the building the elders immediately provided funds for wood, nails and
workmanship to fix the rafters on. This is also achieved. They continued to
Duuni to fellowship with them and see the size and membership of the
congregation. Indeed, the big building was full to capacity when the elders
visited. We are praying for the lord to provide resources to build a big
auditorium for the congregation.

In Gbungbaliga, they support
the indigenous church with funds to build the church auditorium. Gbungbaliga
has already secured blocks, river sand and some iron rods from their sweat and
donations from individuals and funds from Westover Hills Church in USA. The
elders quickly laid the foundation and the building is fully built waiting for
any further assistance towards roofing. The aim of these moves is to edify and
attract prospects form the communities in which the church buildings are put
up. Prayers are needed to fulfill the calling and work the Bomso church is
giving to the northern churches. We still are doing the radio ministry in
Tamale.

REACH UP:

Daniel worshiped with Gnani, Borido, Bitamamdo and
Kpanjamba congregations. On 12th July, Gnani church organized fasting and
prayer, under the theme: “God, Encourage Our Churches”. On 23rd August as well,
they yet again organized another fasting and prayer for God to protect Ghana and her citizens. He
visited Borido church on 21st July only to realized that there was a
funeral and he quickly moved to Kpanjamba, where service and attendance was
uplifting.

David, as usual on 20th
September 2019, led a fasting program at Makayili. This was a joint service by
three congregations. These are Kakpeyili, Makayili and Linpusi churches. A
total of seventy five 75 participated due to the distances. On the 2th
August, 2019, David led another fasting program at Nanjuni church and five (5)
people were baptized.

In
this quarter, a number of half night prayers were disrupted by rains Yendi
church. The only prayers sessions that were achieved highly was the Friday
night prayer which was either high or low in attendance.

Tatale church is still
doing the monthly fasting and prayer as part of building the members
relationship with God.

The
churches in Tatale and Zabzugu districts need your prayers due to the recent
deaths in the two sister districts. Preacher Emmanuel passed on last quarter
while Ishmael Dawuni, preacher, also lost his wife in this quarter.

CHALLENGES:

In this report, we want to
renew our past requests on financial assistance towards the church school. Now,
apart from two Muslim teachers in the Primary school, seven teachers are
members of the church. Poor funding of the school has not made it attractive to
outsiders this time around. We need to pay our teachers well to keep them. The
government’s NABCO programme has greatly affected us. We therefore on behalf of
school management appeal to all loving Brothers and Sisters to come to our
assistance.

CONCLUSION:

The quarter has gone on
quite well with no incidents. The rains have not prevented worship at any point
in time. Though we have not continued with the workshops in our villages,
things have been smooth going.

3rd Quarter 2019 Reports from our evangelists in Saboba, Ghana

October 17, 2019,

MY THIRD QUARTER REPORTS 2019

BY; PREACHER NIIPAAK
LAAR

INTRODUCTION; I
send you greetings in the name of the Lord, your families, and the entire
congregation of Prestoncrest Church of Christ my dearly beloved sponsors. My
family and the family of the Lord in northern Ghana sends their greetings too.
Our good Lord has again blessed us with life to end another quarter of the year
to share our little achievements, plans, and challenges to one another again.
However, doing a full time hearty ministry, it would be difficult for me to be
able to report on every bit of my activities through writing but I will do my
best to highlight on some major points for your perusal. Let me also take this
opportunity once again to express my profound gratitude and appreciations to
you as my sponsoring congregation for your love, supports, prayers, just to
mention but a few you are doing to us here in Ghana. Find some details below;

1. CONGREGATIONAL VISITS;
Congregational visitations have so many reasons here in Ghana and both has a
bearing on the growth and sustainability of the members and the faith as
Christians. Besides visiting congregations for worship on worship days, there
are other essential reasons that make the people well prepared to remain
available for the Lord. Permit me to quote one of the lessons of my brother,
friend, and mentor brother Bob Chisholm “ THE
SHAPE OF FAITH”. In my understanding to this lesson, he summarized
Christianity into three folds. Reaching your God well, Reaching your fellow
brethren well, and Reaching unbelievers well, and to me is one of the powerful
lessons I have ever learnt. Hence, I do my ministry and everything in my life
with this lesson in mind. In my view, for congregations and ministries for that
matter to be alive we have to apply these three cardinal points effectively to
ensure a growing and sustained mission work. Reaching these cardinal
relationships well and coordinating the relationships makes ministry powerful
and meaningful.

Therefore, on the part of
congregational visitations, I want to assure you my sponsors that it is going
on very well by the grace of God. Both visitations for worship, for funerals,
for organized programs, naming ceremonies, marriages, etc has been carried out
successfully. In August I received a call from Kumasi Bomso church elders
asking me to go on their behalf to officiate a wedding of a church sister at
Bakpaba. The sister is a native of Bakpaba and fellowshipping with them in
Kumasi and because of the distance they asked me to stand in for them. The
ceremony took place on 17th August 2019 at Bakpaba. Just as responds
and reception matters so much in our visitation, I can also say that both are
good though some of the visits, its results will be realized latter. Even with
the powerful arm of my Youth ministry and evangelism, visitations have now
become a serious competition between us and the denominational churches in
town. But to say the least, visitations
has since gone well by God’s grace and I am grateful for your prayers in this
regard.

2. THE YOUTH MINISTRY;
Again I am grateful to the Lord for giving me such zealous, energetic young men
and young ladies in the church who are always poised to propagate the Gospel of
Christ in these villages. To be honest, my church Youth is doing a tremendous
work in terms of evangelism and church planting. They are very active group of
young men and ladies who are very dedicated to serve Christ through His church
and I am very grateful to the Lord for their lives. With your special
intervention of the two motorbikes made it more impactful and powerful.

3. WOMEN MINISTRY;
The church women in Saboba congregation have formed a strong evangelism
taskforce and divided themselves into zones where each zone plans their
activities and implement it. At the end they report to church leadership as
their results shall be coordinated from all the zones. They have zonal
leadership and they are in-charge of many things including church attendance
from each zonal area. They have just ended one program called; visiting the
aged in all the zonal centers.

4. RADIO PROGRAM;
The radio program is ongoing without any interruptions. As I had always said,
this program is very major to the Church of Christ in general and not only
Saboba and its environs alone.

5. BENEVOLENCE MINISTRY;
This ministry is one of the interventions that has given the church a lot of
opportunities to impact on people. It has for several months ago gone into
aiding conflict victims, care for widows and orphans, school fees for our blind
sister in the church called; Esther Taalan, etc. Samuel in Bunkpurugu has been
receiving his monthly financial support through the father and time to time I
call him through the father for confirmation. By accumulation of my working
fund through my personal support, I have been able to construct a pavilion at
the church in Saboba which is being used as visitors class for teaching in
morning on Sundays. The blind sister Esther just left last week to school for
her last semester after three years in school. Fertilizers were supplied to
selected people individually in some of the affected communities of the recent
past conflict areas within Saboba and Chereponi respectively. Not all of them
that were able to farm but this was to aid those who farm to get some good
harvest. As part of the women’s ministry, they also identify the very needy
ones and report it for help. Among others was just last two months August they
identified one old lady in Sobiba community who is living in a whole house
alone because, her only male child who would have taken care of her is in
prison and her girl children are all married. This woman is over 70 years and
very weak physically. Upon discovery I quickly organized some foodstuffs and
clothing for her through the women’s ministry leadership. Through that her
daughter who is married in a different community with her daughter too came and
added to the church at Sobiba.

6. CONFLICT SITUATION NOW;
Concerning conflicts resolution and aid, I will testify that, Prestoncrest
Church of Christ has set unprecedented records in Bunkpurugu district, Saboba,
and Chereponi through us here in Ghana. If I may begin to explain myself by
what I said I will start it from Bunkpurugu Chieftaincy conflict. When Bunkpurugu
was so tense and hot God brought elder Charley and brother David Kennedy to
visit me and the work. By courage and how the Lord’s plans were in that visit,
we travelled to Bunkpurugu together in such a risky situation. Upon getting
there we quickly organized ourselves and met the two factions separately and
the Lord spoke to them through these two visiting brothers and they both
pledged to us that they have laid down their arms from that day and indeed that
was the end of it till now. Again when this Kunkomba verse Chokosis conflict
irrupted and I passed on the information to you for prayers and support, your
prayers and supports contributed a lot to the successful control of the
conflict. In terms of aid or physical assistance to the victims, you have done
it more than any other philanthropist and everybody in this area has testified
it. You donated more than any other donor even the President of Ghana has since
not brought anything to help the people. The President set peace committee from
the national level, that committee could not handle the situation. The Chiefs
of the areas formed a team led by Yaa-Naa to preach peace, they couldn’t see
top. At the district level some of us the local peace committee volunteered and
formed a five member committee one from Saboba here and another from Chereponi
and we were able by the grace of God brought the situation under control and
the curfew was lifted and everyone is not free to move about. Our committee
movement got to a point where the only funds we could rely on was the monthly
funds you are sending every month which enabled us travel in and out to resolve
the problem. But by and large, we have the cause to say glory and honor be to
our God for resolving this problem and now people are freely doing their daily
businesses. The last thing to be done is to organize a big durbar for the
people to climax everything. I am also planning with my church leaders and
other preachers to identify one of the villages there to evangelize and plant a
church as a sign of our participation. I want you to be praying with me in this
regard.

7. OTHER INTERVENTIONS;
On the 9th July, 2019 I received a preacher friend from the U S A
and we did some seminars and two mobile clinics in some selected communities.
We went round with him in visiting some of congregations we could reach once it
was in pick of the rainy season. He funded some two mobile clinics at places as
Bikpajaab and Nyankpala both in the Zabzugu/ Tatale districts. The two mobile
clinics helped the areas a lot as they were communities that are far from
health facilities and their roads too are very bad to reach them. Through the
seminars we had 10 new converts at Bikpajaab and baptized them and their names
are in preacher Samuel and others reports below.

8. CAMPUS MINISTRY;
We are now having another congregation in the Senior High School here. Because
the school is E P. mission school, it was difficult for our members to get
opportunity to worship with us. I made arrangements and now we are worshipping
with them there every Sunday.

9. CHILDREN’S MINISTRY;
On the part of children’s ministry, I started a program last year in Saboba
congregation alone and that program is called; Egg Sunday. This program brought
a lot of children to the church. Our Sunday school children are now closed to
200 every Sunday.

10. PROJECTS;
The ongoing projects are the Chagbani building project, Wapuli building
project, Nbolado church building project, and Saboba church roof replacement
project. But I think all these projects I have mentioned and sent estimates
cost of them all in the past. I am only praying for God’s blessings on us all
to enable us finish those projects.

11. WAY FORWARD IN THE FUTURE;
My way forward in the future is to build three more meeting places within
Saboba township to propel more growth of the church. The reason is that, our
growth as a congregation here cannot continue to host our converts at one
place. The town is growing and widening the more and we have members from all
directions which if we add some worship centers will give us more members than
directing everybody to one place. This is just something to be praying about
whiles weighing it with other things and factors.

12. NEW CONVERTS OR BAPTISMS;
I am not going to repeat the ten baptisms from Bikpajaab because they are
captured in other preachers reports below. But following are some few baptisms
I had in Saboba congregation; On the 11th August, 2019.

1. Karachi
Gmajur Lazarus

2. Grumpi
Karachi Lady

3. Baby
Karachi Lydia

On
29th September, 2019

1. Jagri
Ujadin Isaac

2. Laabei
Bismark Talogmi

3. Laar
Paul Sugloman

13. THE EVANGELISTS;
About the Evangelists in Bunkpurugu and Saboba are all doing well. Everyone is
hard working except that, preacher Samson has not fulfilled his promise of
going back to Nankpanduri yet. I also want to let you know I now have among
them those who can lead the teams in other areas in my absence. We need your
prayers always, thank you.

On 7th July, 2019
there was a team of missionaries led by Evangelist Niipaak Laar to Bikpajab
Church for their missionary work. On this day they had a seminar with the
church members and taught the church on the importance of forgiveness and how
it can foster unity and growth in the church.

The members asked a lot of
questions which were bordering their minds even including their social lives
and answers were given for clarifications.

In the evening of that same day,
the team went to a community called Yachado for evangelism and had one person
converted who had joined Bikpajab church.

On 13th July, the team
came back to Bikpajab with the mobile clinic for screening and medication of
various diseases. All the sister churches and non-believers attended this
clinic for the treatment. The mobile clinic was then moved to Nyankpala on 15th
July under Zabzugu district where the church was newly established.

The team then moved to Chagbani
to have the same seminar which I was now part of them on 16th July,
2019.

On 20th July, Bikpajab
church was invited to preacher Wumbei Emmanuel’s child naming ceremony at
Lagbani which we honoured and was successful.

On 21st July, I
worshiped with Kpalbutabu church but from 25th to 28th
July, we had the women seminar at Kuntumbiyili church. In the seminar, Women
were taught in the following areas.

a)
The important of
women fellowship and prayers

b)
How to always make
their husbands and the family happy and

c)
How to receive
visitors.

In the month of August, I
worshiped with Kpasa, Nyankpala, Bikpajab and Nyojado churches. Again in my
last report, I mentioned that we had a meeting at Nyojado church because
member’s attendance was going down and it was discovered that most of the youth
who are members of the church, their parents are non-believers and always
engage them even during Sundays. Some of these non-believers are now getting
understanding and even said they will join the church.

We were again invited to one of
the church leader’s child naming ceremony on 7th September, 2019 at
Kuntumbiyili church. The rest of the Sundays in the month of September, I then
worshiped with Bikpajab church and the sister churches around. I also want to inform you that Bikpajab
church has lost a sister (Uwumboranam Cynthia) who was married to a
preacher at Kuntumbiyili, (Preacher
Dawun Ishmael) but we say it’s Gods’ work because his plans are not
questionable and He does his work at an appointed time. Thank you and God be
with us all.

THIRD QUARTER REPORTS, 2019

BY; BAWAH LAAR

This reports is only on Bunkpurugu central church where I
preach. The building project is now totally completed and functional.
Membership is my problem but we are working hard on that through so many
interventions. Most of my members are students and can only be available during
vocations. However, the few I have are also very dedicated.

I need your prayers always for the church. Bunkpurugu is
Muslim dominated and Catholism as well but nothing is too difficult for the
Lord.

News from Niipaak Laar, our evangelist in Saboba, Ghana

March 10, 2019, Ghana

​Here are some updates from Niipaak Laar, our evangelist in

Saboba, Ghana.

First, some updated pictures of village evangelists:

Elder this is
preacher Kofi Konjah Gideon recent family picture.


This is preacher
Abraham Tibrum Bakam family picture. Abraham
named the baby this morning. He named him Bakam Gmajonban Nathan. The only boy
he has, all girls.


Good afternoon elder. This is preacher Samuel Kolimba and his family.

Good evening elder. I
am currently in Bunkpurugu after going round visiting our brothers whose homes
were destroyed. See those brothers and their destroyed homes in the
pictures below. Bunkpurugu and

Gbingbani church are both buying the roofing materials and
hoping to share it to them on Sunday at Gbingbani church.

The brothers were too happy upon
hearing of the help.

The following
pictures are of a family we are helping support by providing funds for food,
enrollment in the Ghana health care plan, clothing, etc. The boy, Samuel, is suffering from what we
believe is muscular dystrophy.

[3/5, 9:23 AM] Niipaak Laar: Just visited Samuel at his
house with the father. I presented the
money cash to him just this afternoon. I was there with preacher Francis Suuk.

[3/5, 9:31 AM] Charles Johnston: Niipaak-

Thank you so much for the pictures and your care for this
family. We pray that this will be of
help to them and give glory to the Father and promote good influence for Francis and the church.

Please be in prayer
for the safety, health, and outreach activities of all our evangelists,
members, and their ministries in Ghana.
