Those Being Taught:
For Sunday School my family and I are at the Sekondi Deaf School. We have been invited to teach them Bible. Afterwards we go to Cornerstone for Morning Service. We started this at the beginning of October. I have the schoolmaster listening to me then signing to the students. We also are writing the Bible Story for that day on the chalkboard. The kids, Naomi and Matthew Jr. are teaching Bible Stories in their own assigned classes. While teaching at the Deaf School we are picking up some signs and also taking some sign classes once a week. Pray for us, this is a new adventure! On October 4th we started Sunday Evenings in Kojokrom. With this being said we are now having Bible Studies in Kojokrom on Sunday Evenings at 5:00 and Tuesday Evenings at 6:30. As I’ve mentioned before we are holding these Bible Studies at my mechanic’s house. On our first Sunday Evening meeting there in Kojokrom after I read the Passage I had Ebenezer, Koty’s son ready the Fante Bible and to Translate the message. Through the message Koty and his wife, Dorcus were grinning from ear to ear in excitement to see their son being used for God. At Cornerstone we had Revival services October 25th-28th. The Revival went well with God stirring hearts and people at the altar. The Theme for the Conference was out of Hebrews 6:9 “Better Things Of You”. I got to preach 3 of the Services on the topics of: “Persuaded Better Things Of You”, “Better Sacrifices Of You”, and “Better Promises Of You”. Prince preached Sunday Evening and another missionary preached Tuesday Evening.
Those In The Corners:
While teaching/preaching in Kojokrom there have been others listening. The house Koty and his family rent is divided up into apartments. On my right at the podium there is a second floor with a porch on it. There is a preacher from one of the Charismatic Churches sitting and listening to the messages. At times Ebenezer tells me some questions this man has after he hears what has been preached. Please pray for me as I speak the Word that the Lord will Draw him to realize his errors and change. God’s Pure Word and Prayer is the only thing that can change this Country of Religious Charismatic Chaos. Many Have A Bible or A Twisted Version But They Don’t Have Many Who Know & Teach Its Truth. Along with the need of God’s Pure Word they need Pure Teaching. On the other side, my left at the podium, there is a separate house where a security man stays. He with sincerity stopped me the other day and said that he has noticed our family ministering in song/instruments and hearing the preaching invited me to his work place to preach there. In front of the podium behind the benches that are set out for those who come to the services is a hill where kids come and listen to the services. Pray that we will be affective in reaching them. The Bible says in I Cor 16:9 “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.” Yet with these opportunities God must Draw them out of their confused state of ingrained Charismatic beliefs.
