Last night the president of Ghana addressed the nation; I was very sad to hear that no date was given by the government on reopening public gatherings. We are happy to see churches in the States opening back up.
We are being very fruitful on the TV, radio, and local “information centers” (community loudspeakers), as we reported last month. God provided for us to distribute rice and oil to the needy around our church the first weekend in May and to the mothers of our church this past weekend. People have been reached for Christ during this time who never would have been reached any other way.
Oppong Kyekyeku Prince is one of our church members who is helping us reach Kumasi during these challenging times. I have asked him to share with us his testimony:
In 2012, the church came to my secondary school to proclaim the Gospel to us; it was then that I believed in Jesus Christ alone for my salvation. I joined the church in 2013, and my Sunday school teacher, Michael Kwakye, helped me understand more about salvation and encouraged me as I went through the discipleship booklets.
But then I enrolled in the university and was not as faithful to church. With the training from my teacher, though, I started to learn more on my own, and I prayed God would use me to start preaching the truth as well. God gave me the zeal and power to start preaching the good news to others on campus.
During one school break, I became faithful to church once again. I am now in the Gap Fillers Sunday School Class, taught by Micheal Sakyi. Because of the teachings of Pastor Speer and my class teacher, I decided to join the church soul-winning team. My teacher has been a great encouragement to me.
Later I also joined the church village ministry in the year 2019. I invited the team to the village in which I was teaching. We preached the Gospel there, and many trusted Christ. From that village, a sister of mine, a friend of hers, three deaf people, and some others decided to join the church.
Through Prince’s testimony, we see fruit from our school ministry, our discipleship, and our village ministry. In February of this year, Prince joined our information center ministry. Prince has some good news to report about this ministry, which we will share in next month’s update.
Please pray that we would be able to meet for church soon and that schools would open up as well. Each month, I draw your attention to one of our team families. I hope you will take time to read Charles and Lindsey Osgoods’ most recent prayer letter and pray for them. You can find their letters at
Yours for souls,
