Follow the Leader

[Frankadua, Ghana] It’s Tuesday afternoon in Ghana, and our project, thus far, has allowed us to speak in 182 venues to a combined audience of over 46,000 individuals.  This is a remarkable blessing of God. All four teams have seized incredible opportunities to share the Gospel in schools, vocational institutions, nightly village and remote film shows, and in the town squares.  We never take these for granted and see each one as a Divine assignment from the Lord.  I, for one, certainly am having my eyes reopened to the truth that our daily obligations and opportunity are assuredly diverse. This morning while...

Ghana:  Sunday Update 

[Frankadua, Ghana.] Our first full week of ministry is now in the books!  It was a full and productive week where our teams spoke in 134 venues to an estimated audience of around 30,000 individuals where over 21,000 people indicated their first-time decision for Christ.  This is certainly a testimony to the power of God’s Word! As we think about this past week we have all been keenly aware of the difference between being religious and having a relationship with Christ.  Both physically and through the airwaves is the reminder of religion and churches.  Of the 12 channels on the television we noticed that 9 of them were preachers talking about...

The Call of God and Personal Responsibility 

[Adidoma, VR Ghana.] It is afternoon on Thursday and our teams, since last Saturday, have collectively shared the Gospel in 104 venues to an audience of over 21,000 individuals where an estimated 15,000 have indicated personal decisions to receive Christ! The call of God on our lives takes us to places we have never imagined.  Traveling down these rough rugged roads has somehow begun to feel normal for us.  The sights along the way have become routine for those of us who have been coming over the past two decades, but each day is distinctively unique.  Yesterday we were face-to-face with government officials and the area Chief and...

Disturbed but not Defeated 

[Adidoma, VR Ghana.] Last night was much better than before.  We had a good dinner and comfortable night’s rest.  Thank you for praying with us. Tuesday began like any other day on the project.  After breakfast our teams set out for another day of ministry in the assigned areas.  My team (each American has a team of locals who travel exclusively with them for the entire time we are in country) arrived at our first school and all seemed exactly like the others.  It was a fairly large Roman Catholic school with a total student and teacher body of around 1,000 in...

Frustrations are not Failures

[Adipoma, VR Ghana.]  The team arrived safely in Accra on Saturday morning and followed our normal routine of going to the market for necessary provisions, checking into the hotel, catching up about our work back home and reminiscing about previous ministry projects together around the world.  After a comfortable day in the new place, an early dinner, we all turned in pretty soon for a great night’s rest.  It seemed like we were just across the street from home. A small group of our Ghanaian team arrived on Sunday morning to collect us and transport us the 3 hours to our first field assignment of the project. ...

Wheels Up

After months of preparation our team is ready to “take off” for Africa. The season of planning and preparation is now over and we are anticipating a time of sowing and reaping. This will be the first project that is co-directed by both our outgoing director, Rev. Dr. Sammy Lartey and our new incoming director Rev. Ebenezer Agbleze. Sammy has given most of the preparation work to Ebenezer but has remained a trusted “eye in the sky” to minimize any potential problems. He has taught us what true leadership looks like and for this we are all grateful. Our team...
