Greetings from Salaga District. PCC family is reminding you all to assist the families of our Beloved member in prayer whose sudden death occurred in the month of November 2018 and whose mortal body remains at Yeji Hospital. The man was 62 years old, and the sad aspect of the matter is, that our beloved Brother left behind the wife with pregnancy.
These are plans for the funeral:
Thursday, January 10, 2019: Wake - Keeping
Friday, January 11, 2019: Body in State & Table Collection
Venue: Abelekora at Makango
On the same January 11, 2019, in the afternoon, the Body will be convening from Northern to Volta Region (Dzebetato near Sogakope).
End of the year report: December 2018
This is what the Lord has done. We began with many friends and loved ones, but they could not make it to see the end of the year. And to me and my family God has protected us till now, which we are very grateful for His protection. Many travels l made within 2018; by the Grace of God nothing evil occurred in my journeys. He also was faithful to provide all our needs and made us to see and enter into this very year 2019.
In fact, He has done a good job in my entire family; we are appreciative and say Thanks be to His Name.
All the congregations in the district are all saying the same: A big thanks to God for making us to see the end of the year 2018 very successful. Many lost souls accepted the Lord and were baptized into the Kingdom of God; many naming ceremonies were done for the glory of God.
Not these alone, but the Lord also provided knowledge and wisdom to our Brother Isaiah to complete a one-year Bible course and began to join us in the field for mission work.
We thank God for a mission loan received for two churches in our area for their roofing.
The churches are still needing prayers for the entire congregation to remain in the Lord, to have a good and long life, prayers for their works, and to their whole families. Beside, the entire leadership is appealing to the Authorities if they can find some support to our beloved Brother Isaiah to financially assist him in the ministry and also acquire a motorcycle to work as a field worker. He is married with kids already.
This year we have a lot of visions to fulfill; therefore, we need prayer support. We need prayers for new souls baptized within the year to grow in faith and to bear fruit of many kinds.
As God was able to help my family to the year 2018, we are still requesting prayers that God provides and cares for the entire family to have good health and also to supply all our needs.
In all we have seen the effort of the Office, especially Our Director, Pastor Enoch Nyador, and our Friends in the U.S.A.
May God richly bless them all to see the end of this year, and may this year be a year of difference and a year of prosperity.
Again, l will say Happy Happy New Year.
Amen and Amen.
