Thank you very much for your prayers and support for Team Ghana!
God has blessed our team recently with many new things and people!
New Team Members: The Baraka Hall Family—We are pleased to announce that the Baraka Hall family has joined our team. Brother Hall has answered the call to work with the deaf here in Ghana. His ministry to the deaf will be based out of our church here in Kumasi. This fine couple is now on deputation raising support so that they can join us. Please consider having them in your church and taking them on for support. Their contact information can be found here: www.fbmi.org/missionary/6117.
Charlie Clayton: Bro. Clayton is a recent graduate of Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, Indiana. He is now working on his master’s degree and will be interning with our team for about six months. His plans are to join our team full-time after he completes his master’s degree. We prayerfully expect that this internship will be a great learning experience for Bro. Clayton, as well as a great blessing to our team. If you would like to partner with Bro. Clayton, his missionary number with FBMI is #6119.
New Building: For the past 2½ years, our church has met under a tent. The tent is showing signs of wear and tear. Our church members responded to the need and have sacrificially given several thousand cedis towards our Building Fund. Then just recently, God touched the heart of a mission-minded donor to help us complete our new auditorium. Praise God! Please pray that we are able to “raise the roof” quickly. God had put Brother Billy Carter on our team “for such a time as this.” He has a wealth of building experience, and that has allowed our project to make great progress already. Pray that the workers will be safe as construction continues.
New Ministry: In October 2010, God allowed us to start Fundamental Baptist Academy with Grades K-12. This year we added a daycare service, which now allows us to accept 2-to-4-year-olds.
New Bus Routes: On a recent Sunday, our church started two bus routes to areas where we were already holding weekly Bible studies. On the first Sunday, of the 12 who came from Adankwame, 5 were baptized. Pray for these new converts to grow in the Lord and to become productive in the work of God.
