Two weeks ago, we held our 12th Annual Pastors’ and Workers’ Conference. The theme of our conference was “Biblical Prayer and Worship.” Dr. Eddie Lapina and Dr. Dan Siemer of the First Baptist Church of Hammond were our guest speakers, and they were a great help to our church and to our conference delegates. Pastors and church workers attended our conference from all over Ghana and from other countries in West Africa. Over 700 attended the preaching services each night, and over 500 were in attendance during the day sessions. I was especially pleased with the incredible number of our church members who got involved in the conference.
Here are testimonies from several Ghanaian pastors who attended the conference:
• “Brethren, I never knew worship transcends singing. I’m grateful to your team. Thanks.” – Pastor Ebenezer Tei Opata, Zion Baptist Church, Madina, Greater Accra Region
• “Prior to the conference, I was praying and worshipping, but not as I should have been. Now I’m going to do it better than before.” – Pastor Christian Gafatsi, Heaven’s Praise Baptist Church, Tema
• “Dr. Lapina’s teaching on James 5:13-16 about anointing the sick was superb. He gave me clear insight about the passage.” – Pastor Isaac Otwey, New Life Baptist Church, Mumford, Central Region
• “I was encouraged by the number of people there, and I pray that all who were present will commit to pray as well as worship God in Spirit and Truth.” – Pastor Frank Odonkor, Berean Baptist Church, Accra
During the afternoon sessions of our conference, I taught the senior pastors, my wife and the team ladies taught the ladies, Brother Charles Osgood and Dr. Lapina led the youth conference, and Dr. Siemer and Brother Mike Sarver taught the “key men” sessions for all the rest. The Sarvers are our featured team family this month. Please take time to read their most recent prayer letter and pray for them: tinyurl.com/SarverLetters. In March and September, our church emphasizes bringing visitors. Please pray for many to visit our church this month, find salvation, and decide to keep coming.
Yours for souls,
