The rains have been exceptionally heavy this season in northern Ghana, bringing some flooding and most of the crops yielded poor harvests. The rains have also remained longer than usual. The landscape is still green where it is usually dry and brown by now. The heavy rains delayed the drilling of the well (bore hole).Again, we thank you all who gave towards this water project in Gbeega, Pastor Clements community.
Some cool partnership work: A dear sister raised money by walking for dollars. Our grandson Jack’s kindergarten class raised funds through a mission awareness project. Our dears friends & partners 8 year old daughter gave from her piggy bank, Life Care ministry and a number of others gave significantly.
The bore hole construction was successful. Many “Yeah God” stories through the process, culminating with the celebration where the gospel was heard and responded to. – “Faith comes by hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”
Broken – Hurting – Outcast
Modern day – “Woman at the well”… “If you knew the gift of God,,,” – Jesus

“If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water.”
“Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (Harmony with God life, better life, endless life)
Many of the people are still in Idol worship and sacrifice on alters and shrines. The Chief (107 years old) asked for, “The truth to be taught to our people”. “A time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth. For they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.”
“So Paul took his stand in the open space,,, and laid it our for them. It is plain to see that you Athenians take your religion seriously. When I arrived here the other day, I was fascinated with all the shrines I came across. And then I found one inscribed, TO THE GOD NOBODY KNOWS. I’m here to introduce you to this God so you can worship intelligently, know who you are dealing with… God does not live in custom made shrines or need the human race to run errands for Him… The unknown is now known, He’s calling for a radical life change…” Acts 17 The Message
We Thank God! We Thank You!
