When The Dust Settles

(Charlotte, NC) I hope by now you have found our video journals and blogs on our website. To view them go to https://gemonline.org/video/

The final numbers are in and on this project we shared the gospel in 173 venues to a total audience of 53,917 individuals where, by God’s amazing grace, 38,426 people openly indicated their decision to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Now that we have had the opportunity to reflect on the project what are some of the lessons we have learned:

  • Four American teams members is the perfect number. The only variable is when Dr. David goes with us for a separate dental team.
  • It is imperative that the four travel on the same days. There is too much confusion when some of the team wants to depart early (or later) than the others.
  • One of the most amazing things about the project was the excellent leadership our new director, Ebenezer Agbleze, provided to our national team. To a person, everyone involved with this project, American and Ghanaian alike has commented on the new attitude and atmosphere that Ebenezer brings to the work. I want to encourage all our friends to pray for him as spiritual attacks are sure to follow.

I am grateful for our new Executive Council comprised of Jacob Yakubu, Delanyo Dormevenu, John Amauley, and Samuel Tetteh. These are all choice servants of God and I believe they will ably guide us into the future.

Please pray for our team (Craig Barker, Mark Chase, Andy Poe and myself) as we set out for our 8-9 hour drive back to Accra, on some of the most perilous roads here, to connect on Saturday and Sunday for our flights back to the USA.

Thank you again for all your prayerful support in the harvest of the Gospel. We will continue to take the message of Jesus where others refuse to go.
