Francis Addae works among the Gonja and Komkomba people groups in the East Gonja district at Salaga and its surrounding villages in the Northern region of Ghana.
The following is Francis' report from the mission field in October/November. Please join us in thanking God and asking for his continued work:
Thanks be to God who has seen my family and I through the month of October very successfully. Indeed, God has protected us and provided for the entire family. It is my prayer that he should continue to watch over our lives throughout the month of November.
Another prayer is that I want God to help Faustina Addae and Robert Addae to pass their exams.
In the ministry, God has done a lot. The members are doing well, the elders are taking visitations very seriously, and through that the churches are revived. Again, we thank God for strengthening us to be able to go and teach once a week at Salaga Prisons.
These are our challenges which we need your prayer assistance with:
1. Out of five branches who need 4 packets of roofing sheets, 2 of them are very prepared as they have already acquired 100 boards for the roofing. In order for them not to be discouraged, I will please ask that we assist them in prayer and in funding. These churches are Gbetepo and Abelekora.
2. The members in both Fishing and Farming communities, who lost their farms and their nets because of this year’s heavy rains and flood, still need help.
3. The entire leadership are asking for financial support for my pickup truck. A missionary called Bob Sheffler who has helped me for the past 16 years with 200 U.S. dollars each month is going to stop supporting from this end of December 2018. Therefore, there is a need for God to raise new people to be touched and support me and the ministry. This fund solely goes into servicing and fueling the pickup truck to go on missions, send people for baptisms, and visitations within 10 communities. Presently, the pickup truck is breaking down often. And this is costing us a lot to repair.
4. Prayer for God to protect field workers both Evangelist and Clinic workers within GCM.
