Ministry has its issues but it also has its rewards! It is a blessing to see God at Work! People Served and People Saved! In January and February we got to go to 2 new villages, Nakontopon and Esiaman in Sekondi to show movies. The First Village, a week before we showed, someone was robbed and murdered. During setting up and showing the movie many from CBBC and our Bible Studies in Kojokrom and Kansa were on the sidelines giving out John and Romans and witnessing sharing the Gospel. Cornerstone had 6 representing them, Kojokrom represented by my family had 5 and Kansa represented by Bro Harrison had 2. At least 9 Accepted Christ as their Savior and 2 are coming faithfully to church. The Second Village, Bro Prince and his wife live in, was represented by the same as the First Village plus one more from Kojokrom, Bro Harrison’s wife, some students he is teaching Bible courses, and 3 visitors from the States. Some from this Second Village Accepted Christ. Also other contacts to go back to were received. One from there has visited the church and Prince is still working on her. By practicing and playing soccer my boys are helping in developing friendships. In one month Matthew brings a message and the next month Joseph brings a message. This has sparked some interest in the younger boys that look up to my boys. Jackie and Naomi do a Bible Club for the kids on Saturdays and a lady in her 20’s named Harriet who listens in on the Bible story they invited and she came to a church activity we had. Please pray for our M.C. this week at CBBC.

Activities: In January and February our teams: Kojokrom, Sekondi, & Kansaroda played some competitive soccer matches. In January my team in Kojokrom along with Kansa played against Bro Prince’s team in Sekondi and lost 5 to 3. In February after weekly practises my team in Kojokrom shut out Prince’s team in Sekondi 2 to 0. Kansa, well they tried. Their score with Kojokrom was 0 to 0 and their score with Sekondi was 0 to 3. With all in fun whether we win or lose in Kojokrom or Sekondi we win!!!
Land Issues: At times it seems we are close to be getting church land then a problem comes and seems to put us back. This time the land we have been working on getting the owner has died. Sad to say that it might have been a blessing in disguise. Unbeknownst to us the man did not own all that he was telling us. Now that he is dead we found out that he owned a little section of the land and that the government owned 2 more lots of which he was trying to get us to pay for and keep one for himself. Now that he is dead his sons want to sell us his little section and the government wants to sell us the other 2 lots. AMEN!!! This kind of reminds me of Ananias and Sapphira with holding from God. Although there are many delays in life, God’s Timing Is Best. God’s Timing is connected to God’s Guidance, Protection, and Provision.
Bits Of Bread: Don’t Withhold Whatever Is God’s or Whatever He Wants from Land to Your Life!!! “And kept back part…” –Acts 5:2a The Lord Knows All –Secrets and Motives Included!!!
