Conference On Missions: March 19th-22nd was a blessed week. CBBC had their Conference on Missions. Our Theme Verses for the week was: “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” – II Cor 4:3-4. As a Christian the messages during the week dealt with The Glorious Gospel; Our Shine; Our Desire; Our Sharing; and Our Faith. The Lord was moving in hearts and God is at work!
Anniversary/Easter Sunday: Cornerstone Biblical Baptist Church’s 10th Anniversary was also Easter Sunday this year. What an exciting Sunday, our Savior is risen and the celebration of God’s church for the past 10 years. We had an early Sunday evening service following lunch and fellowship. The young kids did some special songs and a skit. The youth presented the church with a beautiful plaque representing 10 years. We also purchased a banner for the occasion.
VBS In Kojokrom: We held VBS in Kojokrom. Our theme was “What We Learn From the Beginning”. In the Beginning of God’s Creation we can learn more than the days of Creation. Here is what other most valuable Truths that can be learned from the “BEGINNING”: on Monday “God’s Very Words Are Most Powerful”, Gen 1:3 “And God said....”; on Tuesday “Let God Be Your Atmosphere”, Gen 1:6 “Let there be a firmament”; on Wednesday “God Set The Standard and The Value System”, Gen 1:17,18 “And God set them...and God saw that is was good.”; on Thursday “Seek For God’s Blessings”, Gen 1:22 “And God blessed them saying…”; on Friday “Seek To Be After God’s Likeness”, Gen 1:26 “…Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness”. The week started with 64 in attendance, by Friday we had 85. Through the summer time we plan on doing 3 more VBS one each month in June, July and August, in 2 villages and then at the church CBBC in Sekondi.
Scripture To Arrive: The Scripture Container that we have coming to Ghana was packed full of Bibles on March 23rd by Bearing Precious Seed in Milford, Ohio. It’s estimated time of arrival in Ghana is May 20th. Please be in prayer for its safe arrival, our shipping and handling costs over here in Ghana, and the placing of the Scripture Container on the church property with no troubles.
