[June 15 2016] Ghana Mission Trip Update

Ghana is currently experiencing one of the most severe and torrential rains for the first time in a decade, and the Central Region and Accra have had their fair share of flooding.

 

The number of death recorded in the Central Region alone since the rains started in June has risen to ten according to the Regional Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organization as reported by the The Ghanaian Times Newspaper.

 

Victims, comprising two middle-aged women, a teenager and seven children died as a result of electrocution, drowning and collapsing walls due to the impact of the torrential rains. However, in Gomoa area, we’ve not recorded any disaster, although experiencing rains we are safe and going about our ministry.

 

Meanwhile, on behalf of my family and C-WOW, please know that you and the American people are in our thoughts and prayers and especially the family of those who lost their lives in the unfortunate incident of shooting in the packed club early on Sunday, leaving 49 people dead and dozens wounded.

 

Man’s sinfulness has the world on a course toward self-destruction. The Great Commission becomes an even greater responsibility in the face of such massive danger. Many times Christian workers become discouraged because they don’t see more results, or they don’t see a great number turning to God.

 

However, God is still at work calling out a people from all kindred and tribes for His name. We know from scripture that the whole world is not going to turn to Christ voluntarily (see Rom. 10:13-21). But His promise is sure for you and me!

 

Thank you for your prayers and support.

In Christ,

 

John Donkoh • Pastor of C-WOW (Church Without Walls) Ghana
