Update from Ghana
EVERY NATION ACCRA (GHANA):
SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES
We entered into the new decade with an awakening of the Amazing Grace of God and we have been extending this free gift to all by loving them; because God first loved us, and making disciples who make disciples. We are experiencing tremendous growth with an average attendance of forty (40) adults every Sunday. Our Connect Groups have grown to 7 in number and we are expecting to have more running before the end of this year. April 23, 2020 will be three (3) years since we commenced Sunday worship service, the Lord has been faithful.
Our Every Nation Campus ministry continues to thrive through a session every Friday night called “RLVNT” (a safe space to ask questions on Christianity, Faith and the Church). With an average attendance of twenty (20), RLVNT is targeted at students located within the East Legon enclave and the unchurched. Being strategically located close to 9 university campuses, Every Nation Accra is in a campus enclave. We are currently running Connect groups on two (2) campuses with a third to start soon .
We’ve experienced exponential growth in our Kids Ministry which averagely records twelve (12) kids every Sunday since January 2020. We have a total of nine (9) teachers with three (3) serving every Sunday.
Our partnership with Jesus Rescue Team, an evangelistic outreach has borne much fruit. We are together currently reaching out to an impoverished neighborhood within the New- town Ghetto which houses youth involved in all kinds of vices like crime and drug abuse. Over 20 ghetto’s have been reached with the gospel with follow up discipleship ongoing.
Some of the activities undertaken to date are, gospel crusades where 54 persons made decisions to follow Christ, 8 of them have been plugged into a church and are actively serving, 30 new converts have been baptized. There about 20 ghettos with each one having an average of 70 young guys. Over 700 people have been reached since outreach activities started 2 years ago.
Some of the more spectacular events has been a 32 year old drug addict and drug peddler and idol worshiper, surrendering to Jesus.
Two of the young men have also been supported to have vocational training. The partnership has also seen one ghetto trans- formed into a meeting place and a place of worship. Plans are on to transform other ghettos and use them for workshops and training centers as well as worship centers.
