The Next Generation

The Next Generation

It is obvious that sooner or later our generation will fade out. We will get to a place where we are no longer able to complete routine chores. However, we are not discouraged by this at GCM. Because we have continually and intentionally been equipping and training the next generation. This is why with your support; we train at least 5 students at the Bible school each year and provide training in the local churches to over 400 people. Our joy is to see that the work we do does not end with the visionaries, but will be passed on to the next generation. Moses in Numbers 27 obeyed the voice of God and empowered Joshua who eventually sent the Israelites to the Promised Land. Additionally, Christ trained His disciples to carry on His work upon the earth.

In this edition of our newsletter, we throw some light on two of the students we have trained who are performing well and serving in various capacities in the church. They were trained about 2 years ago and have since been actively involved in evangelism, teaching and preaching, and leadership of the youth and the church at large. Please find below short testimonies from Nathaniel and Elisha.

“By the grace of God, I have been encouraged, helped, and guided to lead the church. We have together organized outdoor programs with the sole purpose of winning souls in the communities for the Lord. Despite all the challenges that comes with evangelizing in a Muslim community, God granted us success as we were well received by all. We have scheduled visitations to follow up with the people in order to lead them to Christ. As a former Muslim myself, I do understand the difficulty with accepting Christ publicly. We are trusting God to win them for Christ, to the glory of His holy name. We have set a target of starting at least one church in one of the neighboring communities.” - Nathaniel


“We had just completed school, and this was very hard for me. But, I started with prayer and after three days I went to my senior Pastor and told him I wanted to go to Borae Ahenfie to survey the community and also have an interaction with the community leader(s) if it was possible to start a church there. Glory be to God whose hand was upon me greatly and used me to share His word to His people in Borae Ahenfie. Many people came to the Lord and were baptized. The sick were prayed for and God stretched forth His healing hand upon them and they received their healing.” - Elisha


Please continue to pray for GCM as we continue to train more laborers for the plentiful harvest.

NEWS FROM CHAKALI WORK


Greetings from Mathew Nwedo and Abraham Yahaya church planters committed to serving the Most High God among the people of the Chakali.


God almighty has been so good to us and the Chakali communities as a whole, in January 2023 a building project (two kitchens) was put up on the mission land for our wives.



Abraham Yahaya and his family join us on the mission field on the 9th of February. We immediately began to do the work of God together. Some of the activities we do include video shows in the nearby villages and also having one-on-one talks with the people too. Through this, we met a man and his wife who once converted from Islam to Christianity but later went back to Islam. After sharing God’s word with them, they re-surrendered their lives to Christ and joined us to worship on Sundays. Another Muslim man also joined and worshiped with us but unfortunately became sick and died after three months.

Although we have our worship service in our living room in the mission house, we desire to relocate the worship service to a nearby school (classroom) to have more space. Some others would like to also join us but would prefer a more open space which will be closer to them. Currently, the mission house is on the outskirts of the community. Additionally, we do door-to-door evangelism, and through the evangelism, we met a young man - Daana, who has had a sore on his leg for ten (10) years without any medical attention. The sore was so bad that he was bleeding on a daily basis, and one of the bones in the leg (Fubila) was rotten and visible. His HB was less than 4.0 This was reported to the director of the mission and with his help and support from other people we were able to send him to the hospital for treatment. After spending two months at the hospital with surgeries that removed the rotten bone, he is recovering and responding well to treatment. He is now able to walk with the help of a cane and sometimes all by himself. Currently, he has accepted Christ and waiting to be baptized.


We are much grateful to God almighty for seeing Esther (Abraham’s wife) through a successful surgery to deliver their second child- a baby boy. Kindly pray for my wife, Gifty who is also seven months pregnant with our first child. Lastly, nineteen students from the school where Gifty does her teaching practicals came and worshiped with us. We prayed for them and also provided them pens for their examination that will grant them access to High School.

We are grateful for a visit from management

Kindly pray with us in the following areas: Pray that the souls who come to Christ will remain in Christ and grow spiritually. Pray that our effort through the Jesus Film show in the village will yield great result Pray for Daana to fully recover and serve as a testimony to God’s Goodness. Pray for the students to be touched by the word of God we share with them.

Pray for our safety as we continue to witness a 97% Islam-dominated community.

Thank God for the kitchen that was built to help us in our stay on the mission field.

Thank God for the few people who have accepted Christ.


JULY 2023 FAME MONTHLY REPORTS

Pastor John Kpormegbe

We thank God for your prayer support.

We thank God for His grace and for the entire evangelism team.

I believe you and your families are doing well. We appreciate FAME GHANA and PLAINFIELD CHRISTIAN CHURCH for their tremendous support and kindness. The Church at Banda is giving praise to God for how far He has brought us. The Evangelism program at Buya on the Kpandai Road is ongoing and again, we need your prayer support. We have added Jama Nkwanta (a place we want to start a church) which is a few meters ahead of Buya on the same road; please, pray with us as we try to plant two or three churches this year.


Challenges

The challenge in starting a new church is till persistent: that is a place of worship, Leadership and some logistics needed such as chairs and basic musical instruments genuinely affect the efforts put into church planting.


Prayer Requests

We humbly ask for your prayers. We need more grace and support to continue this noble work of giving that opportunity to our friends, fathers and mothers who are to know Christ. We met 17 of them who were ready and prepared for baptism; hence, we have baptized 6 males and 11 females. God bless us all.




Ps. Yeboah Ernest Junior – Yeshua Love Christian Church, Garu

Peace and joy of our Lord Jesus Christ continue to dwell in us, leading us to live a life of righteousness in Jesus Christ to the glory of God.

We still continue in the word of God, which is life and spirit, to transform us into likeness and true disciples of our master Jesus Christ. All various church activities are still ongoing, such as prayer meetings, Bible studies, Sunday morning church service, evangelism and many more.

It is our prayer that our Lord Jesus, reveals himself and minister to all those we have spoken to them about the saving grace of God in Jesus Christ for them to be saved and become disciples of Jesus Christ.


Pastor Paul Akuteye

The month of July was very successful. The rain came in its numbers, but we did not experienced much disasters like we did the previous year.

The Abassey family from Navrongo are giving us a number of souls who are interested in baptism by immersion.

This month alone we have been able to baptize nine (9) souls in Kumasi; to God be the glory, for what He has done.

We, the leadership at Kumasi, are grateful to God and to the leadership of the F.A.M.E Ghana for the initiative of sponsoring ten (10) people – all from the Kumasi assembly into the Dunamis Bible Institute. People from the Ashanti Region of Ghana need a lot of training and F.A.M.E Ghana has come to our aid to support the people in the Ashanti region of Ghana. May the Good Lord continue to bless you mightily.

We do not have a library for the Bible institute in Kumasi. The church in Kumasi has a plot of land that could be used for the construction of the library for the Bible Institute, which could also serve as a community which in turn could also serve the whole three communities such as Oduom, Aperade, and Anwomaso communities.

We also pray that the partners will come to our aid by giving to the church grants that will help us to finish with the roofing of our building.

It has taken the people of Kumasi a very long time to be financially vibrant since most of the members are all students and apprentices.

Your partnership and support for us as a church is highly appreciated.


Pastor Ernest Nyador – Akplale

Thank God the month of July ended successfully.

Normal church activities are progressing steadily. Evangelism is being intensified despite no soul won in July.

The GHO team had a church service with the church. It was full of singing and dancing.

We pray for goodness and mercy in August.


Pastor Bismark Kassata

I give God the glory to have seen another month and to have seen the beginning of the new month.

The church in the Ntrubo area is doing well by grace.

Thank God there has been a great revival amongst the churches, because we had two powerful retreats with FAME management.

The two powerful retreats empowered the leadership of the church who has since gone to bring the backsliding members back to the Lord.

Through the above program, the youth wing in the Ntrubo area has organized an all-night prayer program every two weeks.

This is the picture of the backslided youth that came back as a result of the program “Walk through the Bible” and “Growing the Local Congregation.”


The Lord is doing wonderful things by healing that was experience in God’s presence.

number of youths that attend church on Sundays grew after these training sessions and revival prayers.

We wish we could have those programs every year. We pray that funds will be available for the programs to continue.

I request you to pray for our youth to maintain their commitment to the Lord.

My family and I request you to kindly pray for God's grace to overshadow us to do His work.

We show appreciation to our sponsors for the good work for the Lord; we pray for God's blessings for you beyond measure

Amen.


Pastor Felix Nsejamese

We give praises to God for his blessings upon us.

By the grace of God, church activities, preaching house to house evangelization and prayers is going on. Nu Wuriboare Asen (meaning Hear the Word of God) information center always shares devotions and meditation every morning to the community. This is because we strongly believe that “faith come by hearing and hearing of the word of God”.

We also visited Tenglen-Malando but they asked us to wait; we are trusting God to plant a church there. For now, Solomon is fellowshipping with Kojobone C.C.

We need your prayer support for more open doors for soul-wining and church planting.


Pastor Kingsley Nyindam

We praise God for seeing us through the seventh month of the year. Baptism: six souls accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and savior and were baptized.





Pastor Paul

We are very grateful to our Maker for the gift of life.

Last month, a church member recovered from a severe sickness she went through. The head of her family has pressured her to abandon her faith in Jesus and go for a local treatment involving animal sacrifice.

She resisted by telling them that "alive or dead she is the child of God". She received an ultimatum that she will die if she didn't perform the sacrifice. She stood on her faith. She is doing very well now completely healed. At the end the head of the family confessed to her. “Your God is a true God". We celebrated her faith and total commitment.

Let's continue to pray for peace in the communities where Islam and idol worship are dominant


Pastor Addae

Praise be to God for watching over us.

My wife’s next review is scheduled for August 28 in Kumasi.

We give thanks to God for the old lady who fell down; she is now back in the village and walking with the aid of crutches – we pray she will soon walk unaided.
