Beloved in Christ
Greetings in our Lord and Redeemer Jesus
The Apostle Paul said we must “give
thanks always for ALL things unto God…”Eph.5:20a.
The Blessing of our Tip to
The Lord made our trip this year one of
the best for the ministry here in Ghana.
The Lord provided the materials we
needed to complete the building project, e;g. the Steel rods and Iron sheets,
Computers and stationary for the school use. A Boat and various medical items
for the clinic in Northern Ghana. A Vehicle for the ministry use. Generous
donation of funds to help us ship the supplies to Ghana.
We are very thankful to the Lord and for
all the many churches, companies and individuals that the Lord burden to give
for the ministry here.
Arrival of Supplies And
The supplies arrived on the
28th of October.
I was able to do process the Exemption
papers for all the supplies and exemption was granted for all the supplies with
the exception of the Vehicle. The Custom Officials said if the vehicle sits more
than 10 people then the Law of Ghana says if it is for school , it must be
exempt. Unfortunately the vehicle sits ONLY SIX (6) so we were not qualify;
also the vehicle is Over Aged which also attract 10% penalty. (A vehicle brought
to Ghana that is more than 10 years is over aged).
The total duty is $4000 which include
the penalty. We had $1000 from the shipping fund, we had a loan of $3000 from a
Christian Business friend, we are planning to sell the Vehicle for at least
$6000 to $8000, to pay the brother and to use the rest for the ministry . The
vehicle is with the brother. We have learn our lesson not to bring an over aged
vehicle to Ghana and also to make sure that the vehicle can sit more than 10
The Building Project:
We have start work on the building, we
hope to do the concrete work this week on the third classroom. We will then do
the fourth classroom in two or three weeks time. If all the funds for the cement
comes in, we should finish the concrete work by the end of January 2005. We will
need funds for 200 bags of cement.
We will still need blocks for the first
floor at least 2000 block, $10 buys 20 blocks. Please those of you who still

project by sending the card in next Month. If you need more cards you can
contact the Office on 410-536-0332.
New School Principal and 2004
We praise the Lord for bringing Sis.
Harris to help with the High School. She has already made some major
administration changes in the school for the Glory of the Lord. Teachers as well
as students and their parents are praising the Lord for Her. Our admission this
year is not the greatest due to the fact that we returned to Ghana too close to
the re-opening and for Sis. Harris taking over the administration. The total
this year is 45, but we are hoping to get more students in January
Trip to Northern Ghana:
We were planning to go to our outreach
field from November 19th to the

planning to go on the 26th November to

the time we will send the Boat over. We are also expecting some brethren from
