Your support and prayers is what makes everything possible. This month, I thought I would just copy what Emmanuel wrote in his prayer news for you to see his perspective on what Mission Resource Ghana does. Below is a direct quotation of his April Prayer News and Recap.
The merciful God has seen us all through the celebration of the death and resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ. While it appears to be a time of sorrow when we look at how he was beaten, it is also a time of joy because there would not have been eternity for us without his death. (And Resurrection)
"Greater love has no one than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." John 15:13 Death for another person as done by Jesus, no one can do. Not even a husband for his loving wife nor a dad for his most loving son. Jesus is the only one that has true love for mankind, even, in our sin.
As we cannot take on death in place of our neighbor, we can at least, reciprocate the death of Christ for us through loving others which we can demonstrate in diverse ways, such as sharing the gospel, helping the sick, the needy, the weak, creating jobs for the jobless etc.
Mission Resource through the help of donors continues to demonstrate practical love for people by helping them with loans to put them in employment for the purpose of earning their living at one hand and for spreading the gospel of Jesus on the other.
A lot of the social vices that we experience all around us has its roots to two things; not knowing Jesus and poverty. People would generally not go into prostitution, arm robbery, kidnapping etc if they really know Jesus and they are gainfully employed.
Thank you again for your prayers and support.
Blessings and thanks,
