10/3-PM-Home Run & CR on Radio

Josh, Steve & I were excited to have an hour with Apostle Odai on the radio! We first explained Celebrate Recovery, Steve tied CR to the Prodigal Son story that should be called the Forgiving Father & we shared our website! The DJ for the station then asked about Home Run, from our earlier radio interview! We shared about the movie, the vision for the movie, that filming started today & the website: www.homerunthemovie.com



Yes... I look bad here!! I have no hair dryer & no curling iron! What is God trying to tell me?...


We will be on the radio again at 9pm for an hour!! Check it out!! Right... :)

10/3-AM-Netting Papaaso #1 & 2

We left at 5am with 100 nets! After several meetings with MPM village Pastors we traveled to the first village! There were a hundred little children! They need clean well water, Christians!! Totally overwhelming to see the reality of how some people live! The women walk miles, carrying tubs of water back to their families... Sewage drains into these ponds!






We gave the little children candy, gave the moms a net for their family/you would have thought we had gold for them! If they understood, they would be thanking God for Kairos 10...! The village Pastors spoke to them of our life in Jesus & sang a song together in their native language! Pray for the male & female Pastors from MPM who work in these villages!!






Apostle Odai knew to gain permission from the village Chief to give the nets! He was appreciative & asked us to pray for books for the children & for a water well...!

Watched Apostle on TV from his office @10pm... Amazing as he talked about CR, the Seminar tomorrow on 10/1, & showed the CR Bible on tv, even using it in his message!!! A CPR Pastor in the making!! Great service from 11pm-4am! (Apostle ushered us out by 1am!)

9/29-PM Villages & Service with Apostle

What an experience to visit the villages where Apostle has started churches & to see children at the school MPM started! We gave them candy & to thank us they sang songs in English: Jingle Bells.... Saw water wells drilled by SHBC & it's members! So touched by these people!!



Back to Shiloah House to get cleaned up!! Apostle picked us up at 6:30 for the Convention of Saints service we attended with him in Accra! What an experience!! No more than 10 white folk among perhaps 5,000 attending! Incredible day experiencing EXTREME poverty in village brothers & sisters in Christ & in pm believers with IMMENSE wealth in Ghana! Amazing to see ALL God is doing in this country! Home by 11pm! :)
