November Newsletter 2009

Answered Prayer:
The Lord has answered prayer! We were praying about LaMissy a girl who lives with her Uncle and has been coming to church as a result of us preaching at her school, West Ridge. Her uncle had sent her away to the far East side of Ghana to stay with her Grandma, it is sad as we have mentioned in our last newsletter, but her Grandma didn’t or couldn’t care for her, so she sent her back to the Uncle. We are excited see God answering our petition as she is now back with us in church. Continue to pray for her, she would like to get more involved in the church activities, but her Uncle won’t allow her, due to his unsaved condition. She shines the Light that he don’t want to see! Also we were praying for Kendall a neighbor teen who has been with us for 5 years. He was being placed in a school (the school system being government ran) maybe even at a boarding school not close to church or his home. With much prayer we are glad to report God answered another petition, he is attending a local school in the area and is still able to attend church. We had 11 students from West Ridge visit the church last Sunday. These are young people and if we can reach out to their families we could see God do a great work in their lives.

October Revival:
We had our October Revival the week of the 18th—21st. Our theme word was “Love”, our theme phrase was “charity never faileth”, our theme verse was “...yet shew I unto you a more excellent way”, our theme challenge was Our Love For God, and our theme conclusion was “...the greatest of these is charity”. Starting our Conference, I preached Sunday Morning on “Some Compliments of a Godly Love”, we had Bro. Widener from Cape Coast on Sunday Evening preach on “True Love Defined”, Bro. Davis on Monday preached on “The Stages Of Love,” Tuesday and Wednesday, we had Bro. Dogor a national pastor from Accra preach on “The Progression of a Selfless Love” and last, “The Results of a Godly Love”. Bro. Dogor went to Bible School in the early 60’s where Bro. Bob Hayes, ,a favorite missionary of mine taught in the Wa Bible School here in Ghana. He did the funeral service for Bro. Hayes here in Ghana back in ‘98’. We enjoyed having Bro. Dogor in our home. The Bible School students/our church’s preacher men, Prince and Koasi, joined us for lunch on Wednesday being given some helpful but good nuggets of advise. It was truly my delight and God’s loving favor that let me met up with, hear and know Bro. Dogor!

Blessing Basket:
It is time to prove our love. This month of November we are putting together a blessing basket, giving food items, clothes, soap and toiletries to some in need. That would be a blessing in our community and show a selfless love this Christmas. Having the church do this is right, good, and spiritually healthy but it is like asking the widow woman to give. “ I shewed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”–Acts 20:35

Bits of Bread:
“The Model Action—Walking In The Light “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” - I Thess. 5:21
