At the end of each year, most Ghanaian churches collect what is called a Harvest Offering. This year the theme for our Harvest Offering was “Investing in the Next Generation.” We are raising funds in order to build a school building on the foundation where our church tent used to stand. This will allow our school the room it needs to grow, as well as free up Sunday school classroom space for the future growth of our church. I estimate that the total amount needed to finish this major project will be nearly $100,000.
I was so pleased with our church’s response again this year. So far, they have given over $9,100. These funds make for a good start.
Our Christian school, Fundamental Baptist Academy, finished its first term at the beginning of December with a special Christmas Program. One of our school teachers, Michael Kwakye, narrated the Christmas story, which was interspersed with traditional Christmas carols sung by our students.
