National pastors, staff, and their wives who attended the marriage retreat hosted by the Fundamental Baptist Church International in Kumasi, Ghana
Investing in Marriages
Several months ago my staff and I met to discuss ways in which we could best help the men we have sent out to pastor churches. We decided that one of the best investments we could make in their ministries would be to invest in their marriages. So we planned a marriage retreat for the first week of November. In addition to welcoming our national pastors and their wives, we invited our college students, church staff, and church members who are married to attend as well. This opportunity was also made available to several couples who will soon be married.
More than 30 couples attended at least some portion of the retreat. We began with a foundational sermon on marriage during our regular Wednesday evening service. The day sessions on Thursday and Friday were filled with biblical teaching. Thursday evening and Friday evening we enjoyed special meals together. Not only did I enjoy teaching and fellowship with these sincere Christians, but I also believe God used this conference to make an eternal difference. Several couples have taken time to thank me in writing or in person for helping them take their marriage to another level. As you pray for pastors in the ministry, be sure to pray for their marriages and families as well.
This month our featured team prayer letter is from the Sarver family. Please take time to pray for this good family. Your support for our team enables the Sarvers and our other team families to be used of God here in Ghana.
Yours for souls,
