Sunday School Visitors
In the month of March, our church emphasized the bringing of visitors. I thank the Lord for the 27 visitors our Sunday school class had in March. Grace Afrifa and Collins Mensah, both of whom were visitors in March, had perfect attendance in April and plan to join our church.
On a recent Saturday, I was able to win 3 teenage young men to Christ—Kingsley, Paul, and Michael. While I was preaching, my son John, on his own, found some kids to talk to. One of them, a seven-year-old girl named Gifty, listened to him the entire time. After I asked her a few questions to check her understanding, she prayed to receive Christ.
More Soul Winning
A few months ago, I stopped at a small kiosk to buy minutes for my cell phone. A married couple, Solomon and Gifty (a different Gifty!), were working there. Solomon told me, “We want to visit your church.” A few weeks later, Gifty did visit our church and trusted Christ. When I stopped by the kiosk days later, she commented to me, “When I heard that I do not have to work for my salvation, a great burden was lifted from me.” Praise God for salvation full and free! Then, two Saturdays in a row, I visited the kiosk and preached to Solomon. After several hours Solomon also had that great burden lifted when he put his faith in Jesus alone for salvation.
Our Bible College
God is answering our prayers for more college students. He brought us two new students in April—Joseph and Adomako. As is often the case, many Ghanaians are not even saved when they come to inquire about our college. One of our staff men, Eric, had the privilege of leading both Joseph and Adomako to Christ.
• Soon we will travel to Accra to apply for a passport for Ben. While we are there, Maria and I will look for a place for Joy to have an EEG; this is necessary to check on the state of her epilepsy. Pray for God to keep us safe as we travel and that we can set up an appointment for Joy’s EEG.
• Pray for Grace, Collins, our other March visitors, Kingsley, Paul, Michael, Solomon, both Giftys, Joseph, and Adomako to grow in the Lord. Let’s keep praying for more Bible college students too.
• Our pastor, Dr. Ted Speer, and his family are on furlough for a couple of months. Pray for God to use them as they travel, and pray for me as I carry some extra responsibility in Pastor Speer’s absence.
Thank you for believing in our family!
Michael, Maria, John, Joy, Faith, and Ben
