The children who participated in the Bible School and many who were not able, received gifts on the final day in Pokrom Nsaba. The gifts were donated by the members of the Ghana Initiative team, family and friends of the team, members of Immanuel Christian Fellowship in Manheim, PA and numerous other donors. Thank you to all who made this blessing a possibility.
After packing everything away and preparing to leave Pokrom Nsaba for the last time this year, the team stopped at the Palace of the Regional Chief to say our final farewells and assure his men that we would be back again in the future. The chief sent his blessings and welcomed us back at any time. He and his men were very grateful for the work done by Ghana Initiative and we are grateful to God and give Him the Glory for all He enabled us to accomplish!
Farewell to the Compassion International volunteers. They were a great help in so many ways. We are hopeful that we will all work together again in the future to bring Spiritual and Physical healing to the people of Pokrom Nsaba. In the meantime, we will pray that the staff and volunteers at HOPE Child Development Center continue to advocate for the many needy children in the region.
The Ghana Initiative team numbers 13 members. Each member gave 110% toward serving the lovely people of Pokrom Nsaba, Ghana and the surrounding area. Our team could not have done it all without the strength and guidance of the Holy Spirit and the unwavering commitment of the volunteers from the Compassion International, Ghana staff! Thank you to all who helped Ghana Initiative bring life and health to the people of Pokrom Nsaba. We all are truly blessed!
The children of Pokrom Nsaba attended a three day Bible school presented by the Ghana Initiative team members. The children learned about the Purpose of Prayer, The Ten Commandments and The Glory of Easter! The children learned from the Word, sang songs, made crafts and memorized a verse from the Bible.
