The five members of the outreach team and two past students of C.M.M, once again paid four days evangelistic working visit at Odumkyere Amanfoso.
We had a safe journey and got there at 8 am on Friday morning due to the break down of our vehicle the previous day. The team received a warm welcome from the host pastor and entire village including even other people from distant villages that the team have not yet visited but have heard of what God is doing through us. It was such a great joy for the team and for them that we have seen each other again.
The team marched on to join in prayer with the Church at their new prayer camp which the team was led them to build during our last visit. We were filled with joy on our arrival, seeing how committed the people are. Pastor Kuranchi led the prayer section while Pastor Asare ministered the word of God encouraging them to imitate Paul in order to stand firm in all storms of life and every work of the enemy.
At 7 pm, the team set off to Rollcall, a village within walking distance of about 2km from Odumkyere. We showed a film “Final Account” and the crowd was about 180. Even though most of them were shying way, with some even running away during the altar call, the team managed to win six souls. Malaria, stomach, waist, headache and body pains were healed.
The team and the host pastor had morning devotion at 4am on Saturday morning. Pastor William led the prayer meeting. We prayed fervently for the church and other churches and the entire villages. God led the team to pray for the host Pastor against food poisoning during the coming Christmas. We continued with house to house evangelism at 9 a.m. We visited the church members and also witnessed to others. The team prayed for a man who was half blind and a four year old boy with malaria and they received instant healing. Two souls were won. We showed a film “Raised From the Dead” at 7 p.m. An intensive prayer was led by Pastor Asare after the film show. The team once again prayed for people with all kinds of sickness and they received instant healings. Glory!! A lady by name Gifty Frimpong who was demon possessed was also delivered. Word ministration was done by Pastor Esther and we closed at 1 a.m.
The team, the host pastor and the leaders of the church joined hands in another devotion at 4 a.m on Sunday morning. We prayed for the churches and the entire people for greater revival.
Sunday service began at 9 a.m. and Pastor Hannah ministered the word on giving. We had a conversion after the service. It has been the prayer of the people to build a new church due to the size and the cracking in the present one. With the joy to see them in their new temple, Pastor Godfred, though he could not join the team this time around, supported them with two buckets of paint. Pastor Esther and Hannah also donated four bags of cement. Another past student also supported them with $10. Other donations came from the neighbouring churches including the leader of the team Pastor Isaac also donated two buckets of paint. The rest of the team also supported with sums of money.
On Monday at 6 am, we had our last service with them. We praise and worship God for wonderful works that He has done with and through us all. Pastor Willie shared the word and encouraged them to be fishers of men. Each of the team again shared some of our experience in the ministry of God and encouraged them to do likewise. We later presented some used clothes and shoes to the church and some toffees for the children. We prayed with them encouraging them to hold on the work until we see each other again.
Because Mondays are their market days, the team ceased the opportunity and witnessed to some of the people who had come to buy food stuffs and two gave their lives to Christ.
On that note, another GLORIOUS activity was brought to an end.
