[June 12 2016] Ghana Mission Trip Update

Nick enters second week of ministry in Gomoa Osedzi

Ghana is currently experiencing torrential rains which have paralyzed a number of activities in the larger parts of the country. Notwithstanding, C-WOW continues to touch lives of the people of Gomoa through the mission activities of Nick.

Motorbike

In my last report, I indicated that we could not purchase the motorbike for Nick to use while on the field. However, I’m pleased to inform you that Mr. Gary Kessler, hearing the piece of news, called to pledge additional $500, which he sent promptly. As I write we’ve purchased the motorbike, registered and licensed it and ready for use by Nick. The motorbike is now ready and would be in Gomoa by the weekend for Nick to use as he goes to the villages in turns to teach.

Football Match

Nick had the opportunity to watch special peace soccer match organized by the former captain of the nation’s football captain. The  friendly match pitched the national soccer tea the Black Stars of Ghana and World selected eleven at the nation’s Sports Stadium in Accra on Saturday 11 June. The Stars won by 4-2.

Gomoa Osedzi

The next stage of literacy class took us to Gomoa Osedzi where members of C-WOW are so excited to learn at the feet of Nick. In spite of the heavy rains, the members were enthusiastic. The Methodist church in the village offered their chapel for C-WOW to conduct this special literacy class. We’re grateful for this kind gesture.

 

 

NB: So far in Gomoa Nkronsa, ten new members have joined C-WOW after the training and sharing. We are now in the middle of completing literacy, skill training and soccer in Osedzi. Next week Nick would be in Ohua for another week and then move to Kumasi the following week. Two more new villages (Mampong and Ogua) have been included on the list for similar training and inauguration services. As usual you’ll be updated as we move along.
