Once again, I want to share from Emmanuel’s monthly report for Mission Resource Ghana. Your prayers and gifts have allowed him to write the following:
PRAISE GOD FOR THE IMPACTS MISSION RESOURCE IS MAKING IN THE KINGDOM THROUGH BUSINESSES. The purpose for which Mission Resource came into existence is to make impact in the spread of the Gospel through businesses. Our relationship and training we give to our clients have a lot of emphasis about how they impact on others and the kingdom through their businesses. We can praise God for two churches that have been started through the loans. Though one is closed as a result of the passing away of the leader, the other is very strong with over 100 membership and baptizing over 200 souls.
Many of the business owners we support share the gospel with their customers, supplier, and employees, and some people have come to Christ through this. We have some of our beneficiaries who have used a lot of their business profits to glorify God in several ways such as:
a. Construction of church buildings.
b. Buying church instruments.
c. Holding crusade to win souls.
d. Supporting the education of needy church members.
e. Paying for hospital bills for aged poor people.
They have made significant impacts on people and the kingdom for which we can all thank God. Beyond this, several people have been helped to have their own jobs instead of looking for non-existing jobs.
As life on this earth continues, although in a way different for all of us, I want to encourage us all to be more cognizant than ever of those around us who need Jesus. Sometimes I find myself complacent. Let’s all rest in Him, but not “grow weary of sharing the Good News we have in Him.”
