Our family is now in the States for a two-month furlough. Please pray that God will use us as we travel. On the Wednesday evening before we left Ghana, we held a combined graduation service for our Bible college, HYLES-ANDERSON COLLEGE OF WEST AFRICA, and for our Christian school, FUNDAMENTAL BAPTIST ACADEMY.
From our Bible college, we awarded three Certificates of Evangelism. We award these to those who are trained as soul winners and who then prove their proficiency in winning souls. Two of our church members received this certificate – Ama Agyemang and Peter Akwasi-Frimpong.Abraham Appiah, a student from one of our daughter churches, also received a Certificate of Evangelism.
Our diploma and degree recipients are listed here as they appear in the picture below, left to right:
• Francis Creppy was won to Christ in 2007 by Missionary Lawrence Williams. Brother Creppy started attending our church, and he became Brother Williams’ translator. Now Brother Creppy serves our church by keeping the records for the Abundant Life Sunday School Class and by recording for us certain special offerings. He regularly joins us for soul winning on Saturdays, as his health allows.
• Louis Gyamfi was saved in 2006 through his personal study of the Bible. He enrolled in our Bible college in September 2014. Brother Louis works in our children’s department and is a bus captain in Amanfrom. His varied staff duties include overseeing our library and teaching English for our Bible college. Brother Louis has a desire to start a church in the Upper West Region.
• Stephen Opoku first attended our church in 2009 after being invited by his nephew. He heard the Gospel on his first Sunday, but he did not get saved at that time. Soon thereafter, he was led to Christ at a church event. Brother Stephen is our church’s youth pastor, and he helps oversee our church program. In addition to being a soul winner, he translates for our church services, and he is a bus captain on our Asuofua bus route.
• Missionary Mike Williams won Thomas Boakye to Christ in 2006. Soon thereafter, Brother Thomas started attending our church. He testifies that the preaching influenced him to attend our Bible college. He serves in the ministry by helping our church plant in Foase and by working on our Ohwim bus route. Brother Thomas has a desire to pastor a church one day.
And then the graduate from Fundamental Baptist Academy was our daughter Rachel! She is our third child to graduate from FBA. We thank God that all of these graduates are soul winners. Please pray for God to use them greatly for His glory.
Yours for souls,
Rachel Speer with her parents Brother Ted and Mrs. Elizabeth Speer
