Mission Trips

We try to do two trips per month. Each trip starts with a four hour drive into the bush. A typical trip is three days long, with three team members.  Normally a pre-meeting is conducted with the village or community Leader to coordinate approval of activities. This helps to ensure that the team can conduct their activities safely. 

Sometimes we start with a soccer tournament.   This brings out the youth of the community to play and the adults to watch. After the    competition there are prizes given. Followed by an evening showing of the Jesus. This film is special because it tells the story of Jesus in the dialect understood by the village. Sometimes this is the first time people have seen a film and often it is the first time they have heard the story of Jesus.


 On Sunday there is a service with opportunities. This is followed by a fellowship by sharing a meal. Clothing, shoes, mosquito nets, food, and water are distributed according to need.


Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father is this: To care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep ones self unstained by the world. James 1:27


An additional way we try to serve the community is to provide Widow bundles. Each bundle contains the basic food ingredients needed for one one person for a month. They contain rice, oil, tomatoes, and sardines and cost approximately $15.

Outreach in the City

This outreach takes three forms. First is supporting orphans and women in need. The main point of help is by supporting Fern House. This sanctuary also provides support to women who are in a crisis pregnancy.


There are other projects worked as they come to light. Examples include Coordinating all the resources needed to get an entire neighborhood of women their medical insurance cards. This has improved their and their families lives immeasurably.

A set of tools to allow a young man to work on cars to be able to make a living to support his extended family.

Child Brides

Even though the Government of Ghana does not condone child brides, the bush communities still practice, This tradition continues due to poverty. The family does not have enough resources to feed, clothe and educate their children. To alleviate this shortage daughters are offered as child brides when the opportunity presents itself.

Caught in this cycle girls as young as 8 or 9 become child brides. Sadly once they are married (often to a much older man) they become his property. When he becomes tired of them, they are discarded. They can't go back to their families who can't support them and because they lack education or any type job training they have no way to support themselves.

We have started to build a safe house to shelter girls who are caught in this situation. The goal is to give them a place to live while they attend local school or a trade school. The land has already been purchased the foundation laid and the walls have started to go up.  Please consider your support by donating to complete this building.

Shoes

We have joined forces with Because International to provide shoes to those in need.  If you would like to participate visit Janine Hamelly's fundraiser Because page at https://fundraise.becauseinternational.org/fundraiser/2424209.   Thank you Janine for coordinating this important project.
