Joshua and Matthew (CHAKALI MISSION REPORT)
Greetings from Joshua and Matthew, church planters from the Chakali Mission.
Glory be to God our loving Father for His love and mercy over us!
Our fellowship with the kids is all good despite the challenges, coupled with our visitation and interactions with the people of the communities, having devotion together, fasting and praying for our personal growth in the Lord also at play.
Brother Matthew is also trying with the help of the children as well in learning how to speak the language too.
Our farm crops are also withering for lack of adequate rainfall.
For His love and protection over us
For strength and wisdom to cope
For financial open doors

Unfortunately, one of our devout members at Ahenfie Branch fell and broke her leg on her way to sell at one of the villages. She is with one of the herbal treatment centers near Zongo on the Chinderi Road; please pray for her full recovery.
I thank God for the leadership of both Ghana Christian Mission and the Fellowship of Associate of Medical and Evangelism for making medical outreach and planting of churches become a reality, of which I'm one of the beneficiaries. Praise be to God in the highest! I thank God for all sponsors and donors as well as Plainfield Christian Church who are key partners of this great commission. I pray that, YOU ALL KEEP THE FIRE BURNING. Praying for you all. May the Lord Almighty Bless us all.
