Eleven years ago our Lord called Rev. Dotse and wife, Rev. Dezire to Monome-Akatsi, an idol-worshipping region of Ghana. In the beginning, they faced many obstacles, both physical and spiritual, but God always pulled them through. As a result, not only have many people accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord, but several have attended the Covenant Messenger Ministries Bible School, graduated and have been ordained in the service of our Lord. It’s always a blessing to receive these Progress Reports from the Dotse’s and learn what the Lord is doing through this dedicated couple. Below is their latest report: A Progress ...
By Val Black Every year Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, a miracle proving Jesus, as the Son of God, had authority over life and death. But before the resurrection, there was His death and one of the most amazing things in the Bible is how His death was prophesied so many years before His birth. Perhaps the strangest of all prophecies of the death of Jesus was in the Old Testament where He was depicted as a “worm”. That may be a shocker to you but let’s look into it and I think you will be greatly blessed once ...Read More

There at the Temple gate was a crippled man who begged them for money. ...

Let Your Light Shine by Val Black
Matthew 5:16: “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Sometimes changing one simple word in a verse of scripture can help us understand a deeper meaning. I’m not suggesting we add or detract anything from the Word of God, but instead would suggest we regard it from a different point of view to help us understand the true meaning. Regarding the above scripture, consider the first word, “Let”. A simple definition of “let” is to, “consent to, permit, to give ...Read More
