Our visit to Ghana Africa has been a success because of you! It was shocking to me to find out that some of the individuals I met, who were close to 50 years old, had yet to receive a Bible. Others currently in Bible College had to share resources among students which slowed down the time to equip and train them for ministry.
I feel so strongly that NOW IS THE TIME to send the Word of God around the world to as many nations as we possibly can.
In the picture above I am standing next to a gentleman who was sharing that our gift of over $400,000 dollars worth of Bibles and Christian teaching tools was, to his knowledge, the most significant one time gift in the history of Ghana for God’s people!
Many thoughts went firing through my mind as I listened to him say those words. In front of over 7,000 people he thanked CRI for giving life to the people of Ghana with the gift of The Word of God. This gift would not have been possible without your prayers, literature donations and financial gifts. As I took the stage, I was broken and overjoyed as I thought of each of you and your part in this great venture to share the love of God with Ghana. Whether I have met you in person, been blessed by your letters or calls, I thanked God for you and rejoiced knowing you were the reason this was possible.
Those aspiring to be pastors, evangelist and missionaries will now be radically equipped for the ministry. They have the resources for evangelism that will continue the word of the Lord. Children at school will have the materials to be educated and God’s Word will not return void!
As we left the Bible College in Ghana we headed to Kumasi where we held a 3 day open air crusade. We supplied local pastors with Bibles and teaching tools for their villages. In the evening as I preached a message of encouragement and the power of God’s Word, the people were overjoyed at the kindness that has been shown to them through the gift you have provided. They began to dance before the Lord with thanksgiving for His son Jesus and the living Word of God.
There is so much more I want to tell you but I am out of room. The good news is you can visit our website and view a short video clip of OUR accomplishments for the Lord. In closing, I have not had the privilege to meet many of you, but I look forward to the time when we meet in heaven. We will be able to rejoice together seeing all that God did because you chose to be selfless, and chose to be God’s man or God’s woman by becoming a book missionary.
I love you and cannot thank you enough for your continued prayers, support and love as we wage war where the devil has tried to take over God’s children.
Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Philippians 1:3 (NLT)
