On November 16, our Bible college held a graduation service. Two men received bachelor’s degrees, two received diplomas, and three received Certificates of Evangelism. More details about this graduation may be found in our most recent Team Ghana Update.
All of our graduates are special to me. Each has a testimony of God’s grace in their lives. Brother Francis Creppy (was our Associate of Pastoral Studies Diploma recipient. He is 20 years older than me, yet he affectionately calls me his “Professor.” After the graduation, he sent me this word of thanks, “Thanks so much . . . GOD richly bless you in all your endeavors in JESUS CHRIST’S MIGHTY NAME. My Prof, I wish to learn and grow up in winning souls for JESUS CHRIST.” When Brother Creppy’s health allows it, he joins us for soul winning on Saturdays. Several months ago, he was in an auto accident, which broke his glasses and knocked out several of his teeth. Also, early next year, he needs to have cataract surgery; his accident delated this surgery by several months. Please pray for God to strengthen Brother Creppy and allow him to continue to win souls for Christ. I wish space would allow me to testify about each of our graduates. Maria and I are pictured on the right with Louis Gyamfi, a bachelor’s degree recipient, and his family.
Pictured here are some of our Bible college students. I was privileged to have these men in my class on “The Life of Christ.” I taught this class in three parts, one week per month over the last three months. I thoroughly enjoyed expanding my students’ knowledge of the earthly ministry of Christ, including the chronology, Jesus’ teachings, fulfilled prophecy, Jewish culture, Bible maps, the historical setting, and the harmony of the Gospels. My students were appreciative. I praise God for changing the direction of my life 29 years ago from research in applied mathematics to ministering the Word of God to others!
Speaking of ministering the Word of God to others, Maurice Bakuuro has been a member of our church for about a year now. His wife Mercy also attends our church. Their son Michael is in our Christian school. I disciple Maurice on Sunday mornings before Sunday school. He is so happy to have completed Level 1 of our discipleship course, thus earning a new Bible. Please pray for Maurice and Mercy to continue growing in grace.
Your servants and His,
Mike, Maria, John, Joy, Faith, & Ben Sarver
