The fields of the earth are ripe for harvest and God is doing a great work in Ghana, West Africa! C.M.M. is blessed to have a small part in it.
On the following pages, you will find various articles but the most important ones are the outreach reports. At least once a month the Covenant Messenger Ministries Outreach Team visits villages and cities giving their testimonies, passing out tracts, praying with and for people in their service to the Lord. There is nothing more important than bringing the lost into the Kingdom of God and it is very rare when the team returns without a good report of people accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
Please read and be blessed by the following accounts of salvations, deliverances, and healings through the efforts of the C.M.M. Outreach Team.

An article by Val Black There is a saying about the Bible that goes like this, “The new in the old concealed, the old in the new revealed”. That may not make sense to someone reading it for the first time but it’s talking about the two divisions of the Bible, the Old Testament, and the New Testament. There are prophecies in the Old Testament that are hidden or concealed, but with careful study, they are fulfilled, or revealed, in the New Testament. Some of the things that are hidden in the Old Testament are known as “types”, meaning a ...Read More
by Val Black When Peter asked Jesus how many times we should forgive others for their offenses, Jesus replied, “70 times 7”. (Matthew 18:22) In other words, God doesn’t put a limitation to our forgiveness of others. But where did Jesus come up with the number, “70 times 7”? It wasn’t done arbitrarily by Jesus but actually done intentionally. In order to understand the reason why Jesus used that particular number, a look into the Old Testament book of Genesis will provide an answer. In Genesis, chapter 4, we read of Cain, one of two sons of Adam and Eve, ...Read More
On December 26, 2018, graduation service of Covenant Messenger Ministries School of the Bible took place at What DId Jesus Say Ministries in Kwabenya, Ghana. Fifty-two students graduated and are now “primed” in the service of the Lord. As 2018 ends and at our late age, Julie and I are thankful that the Lord is still willing to allow us to become a very small part of the ministry. We’re so blessed to be connected to some of the most dedicated and gifted people to help spread the Gospel. Above is a group photo of the graduates, speakers, and others ...Read More
Sometimes in the life of a Christian, a person comes along to whom it seems practically impossible to explain the love of God in such a way as to convince that person to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. It could be a lifetime friend, a sibling, a husband or wife, or any number of people who have become so set in their “ways of the world” the thought of changing their lifestyle is unthinkable. To them, although lacking in spiritual aspects, life is good. Materially speaking, they have most of what they want, but always lacking and wanting ...Read More

Matthew 2:1-2, “Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” (NKJV) Matthew 2:11 “And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (NKJV) Most people are ...Read More
