John Newman oversees 6 churches in Nkwanta and its surrounding villages, where there are more than 21,000 people (45% are idol worshippers and 25% are Muslims). He resigned his teaching job to become a full-time church planter. He has been married since 1986 and is blessed with 4 children.
The following is John's report from the mission field in early 2019. Please join us in thanking God and asking for his continued work:
1. Thank God for all that He has done for us the previous year and ushering us to a new year.
2. Nine (9) souls were baptized in the Nkwanta church and we thank God for that.
1. Nkwanta Municipal Pistis Christian Churches Women Convention will take place in Nkwanta from Wednesday, February 27, to Sunday, March 3, 2019. We need prayers for a successful convention.
2. Nkwanta needs a pickup truck. For it’s about 10 years now since my motorbike broke down and have now received a replacement. Please pray that God will touch the heart of people to give towards buying a pickup truck for Nkwanta. This will mainly help in evangelism around the surrounding villages.
