STORIES FROM THE FIELD

Hi WORLD!...what's new on our end?

Updated: Mar 26


I remember him. Tall, muscular arms, slightly bent over, with a buoyant voice. In his hands a tattered Bible, and dusty feet. He walked from house to house in my village sharing the gospel, pounding grains with the women, praying with us and weeping over us. We called him Pastor. But later, I learned he was a Pioneers-Ghana Missionary. I was only 6 years old. I remember my father, the Imam and my devout brothers driving him out of the village. Like the other children, we jumped and laughed at him. But that day, he sowed a seed in my heart. He later led me to Christ. And the rest is history.


One of the reasons I chose teaching was because of this story. Our Teachers in Missions initiative is one of the blessings God has given us to bring about the harvest of souls and disciple-making in schools in northern Ghana. Through this program, vibrant and energetic young teachers are teaching basic school children and making disciples.


Indeed, Jesus cares about the salvation of the little ones too. They are not too young to receive the joy of salvation and enjoy its fruits much longer on the earth. We can never fully measure how far one missionary's life and work can affect these children.


Would you trust the Lord with us for provision as we supply these teachers with basic equipment and resources for this great work? God bless you!

Love it or hate it, pork is blessed by God and it is a delicacy for many around the world. For one of our disciples in the Sissala land, who loves himself some pork, this understanding made his family unhappy because of their religious background.

However, being a gifted farmer and coming to understand that every creation of God is good, and nothing that is received with thanksgiving should be rejected, because it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer, he went on to raise a piggery to support and provide for his own family. And now the business is booming. He started with two pigs and now, he has 20! Praise God!


It is a joy to know that the gospel does not only bring salvation to the soul but also empowerment through the understanding of God's word.



From only 2 pigs Muniri now has 20
From only 2 pigs Muniri now has 20

But here is the catch for us: the power of two (2) pigs multiplying to twenty (20) is what we want to see happening for believers living among the unreached people groups in Ghana; that such testimonies would rise among them,


that the statistics of less than 2% will become 20% and more and more. Hallelujah!

PRAYER

We have many stories like this, some that we can't share. Pray for all who are persecuted in communities because they have converted and want to live for Christ, that they will stand strong! In many cases, their livelihoods are targeted, or worse case ostracized from the community.

I remember going to the farm with my father even before I knew how to walk. My clan has been farming for generations. Through farming, we learned about our ancestors, the gods, the land, and life. My father, God bless his soul, used those long walks in the meandering bushes to talk to me about life and speaking to me in proverbs and metaphors. ”My son, no matter how hot your anger is, it cannot cook potatoes”, he once said. This was a piece of advice that hot temper and anger can not solve problems. These traditions reminded me that I could also use farming in church planting and discipleship.


Now I am a teacher and a farmer. The days with my father reminded me that as a Christian teacher and farmer, discipleship is part of the culture. After our training in Accra, I made a decision that I will be more intentional about making disciples in my Church planting efforts; especially since my community is made up of 90% farmers.

Farming has brought me so much joy since I discovered discipleship through farming, I use farming as an opportunity to build relationships with the farmers, at rest time we meet to eat and also share refreshing times together, we talk about farming, family, and also Jesus Christ, since most of them have heard about Jesus Christ but hasn't met him as a person. Our conversation sometimes goes deep into the essence of life, they share their experience as Non-Christians and I also share my experience as a Christian missionary. Our relationship is growing very fast.

1. Pray that my Faith and Hope will firmly be founded in the knowledge of God’s wisdom, Love, and Patience.

2. With the slow cycle of seasons in farming especially in times like this, pray that the farmers will not lose hope, but they will know the Lord who gives Hope.

3. Pray that, as we search scriptures and spend quality time together, the Farmers will meet Christ.


4. Pray for my farm produce. This year has been very bad. It is an added way we support the ministry on the field. Pray that i get maximum yield.
