Siscos' Monthly Newsletter: Ghana

Children's Ministry

A new twelve week series of children's lessons entitled "A Mouth Full of Good Things" has been written and printed by the Ghana Missionary Team. We are excited to begin these new lessons leading up to our annual Children's Week the first of May. The key verse "Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles" (Proverbs 21:23) sums the series up well.

Team Ministry

Due to the recent visit of the Capital Community Church in Virginia, the United Pentecostal Church International of Ghana has been blessed. Led by Associate Pastor Steve O'Donnell, the fourteen member team networked our national office, painted on our national headquarters compound, taught at our Bible College, preached multiple times, helped put together Sunday school helps and blessed a local orphanage. It was exciting to see ten filled with the Holy Ghost under their ministry.

Ministry is always the focus of visiting teams, but it's also fun to share our host culture with guests. CCC was able to walk our rope bridges at Kakum National Park, play with the crocs at Hans Cottage and tour Elmina Castle, the longest standing slave castle in sub-Sahara Africa. Despite the heat, power outages, and yes, even broken down vans, the team persevered with a positive attitude. "Adaptability" is a must with missions! God bless the various mission teams that use their talents for the Lord.
