The following are the combined staff reports from the various GCM staff. They cover April 2021 and/or May 2021.
Glory be to God in the highest for granting us His mercy and lovingkindness. I thank God for His special grace and His continuous sustenance on all of us.
Both my personal and church family are doing quite well. Also, join me in thanking God for one of my spiritual sons, Benjamin Gbekle, who has successfully completed his theology course this month at Tamale. We are praying for the board members of Ghana Christian Mission to have a place for him, for an internship, ordination, and the way forward. I'm grateful for the work of our former director, Enoch Nyador, for the love and kindness he has shown for the three young men who completed the Center for Pastoral Training and Mission, now as Dunamis Institute Tamale. May the Good Lord continue to support him.
Among the Nchumuru and Kokonbas where I work at Banda, access to potable water is a serious problem in the District. The church at Banda first had one borehole, but it is no longer functional. I pray with a hope that in a good time of God's hands through you, there may be a support by giving us a mechanized borehole.
The church has now finished the laying of blocks for the Banda pavilion. We are now looking forward to plastering and buying of instruments, fans, and others.
Praying for all our partners, especially Plainfield Christian Church as well as Pastor Riley and his wife, Kayla.
My wife and I are very thankful to God for His protection over my family and ministry. He led us through the Easter festivities successfully. A 45-year-old woman accepted Jesus Christ as her savior and was duly baptized (see photo). The church will start tiling the floor of the church next week; glory be to God!
Thanks be to God Almighty for the love He has for the Pistis Christian churches in the Kumdi District. Kumdi Christian Church is working hard laying blocks between the pillars up to the window level of the church building (see photo). I also want to inform you about my nuptials scheduled for May 22, 2021, at Dzogborve Global Evangelical Church of Ghana near Dabala in the Volta Region. Your prayer support is needed and appreciated.

Thank God for a very successful Easter convention. The Transformation Christian Church held an Easter convention at the local level at Awutu Papaase. We started the program on Thursday, April 1, and closed on the evening of Sunday, April 4. We had morning and evening program through to Sunday evening. Pray for us as we have planned to dedicate June as a month of evangelism.
We are so thankful to God for the churches; by His grace we are moving on well.
Pray for brother Maxwell, a leader at Kanjido. He had a motorcycle accident with a man who is on admission in the Tamale teaching hospital. Brother Maxwell was not seriously injured and is in the house now.
Glory be to God for His protection over my life and the entire Chakali communities!
It's my prayer that the Lord of all languages will give me the spirit that will help me speak and understand the Chakali language.
Glory be to God for taking us through the month safely! Though there was no baptism during the period, one soul is being prepared for baptism. Good Shepherd also took part in praying and supporting the PCC National youth executive who went on a mission trip to the Eastern Region of Ghana. Good Shepherd also contributed and prayed for Pastor Francis Addai and his wife during this time of need. The church building project is progressing steadily.
Support us to pray for four of our elderly women who are old and weak. They cannot come to church anymore, but the church and their families are concerned about their welfare.
Let us all pray for our country Ghana. The church is feeling the bad economic situation in the country.
We give God the glory for sustaining our lives this far. By His grace, the churches are doing well physically and spiritually. A 79-year-old man came to worship with one our church branches (see photo). According to him, he comes from a small town in Togo but cannot make the way home due to his age and poverty. He is now under the care of the church.
We humbly request you to pray with us and also support the church financially since he is now a burden to the church. God bless you for your continuous support.
