Youth Camp at Keri, Marriage Forum at Nkwanta

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 August/September. Please join us in thanking God and asking for his continued work:


  • Thank God for protecting and providing for the needs of my family.

  • Thank God that my grandson is a year old.

  • There had been a successful youth camp at Keri. The youth came in their numbers, and their enthusiasm was beyond understanding. They refused to stop praising the Lord even when it was raining heavily.

  • The women fellowship at Nkwanta organized a marriage forum to discuss the causes of problems in marriages and how to solve them. Thank God it was a wonderful time.


  • Pray for God’s protection and provision for the family.

  • Pray for our sponsors through whom we are able to get financial support to be able to minister wherever we are.

  • Pray that the love of the members of the church will be deepened to have passion for souls and that they will spend time for evangelism.

  • Pray that the members of the churches will be blessed in order to give for the support of the ministry.
