The EMI team and I have been in Sang, Ghana now for 4 days, and we are currently working on master planning, field survey and investigation, and reviewing Sister Stan’s programming vision. We have been blessed to be hosted well by the Marian Sisters of Eucharistic Love at their rented house, and we’ve tried many Ghanaian dishes, including corn banku and porridge.
We have been able to help hold and feed a couple infants, as well as to interact with the few orphans who live here and other children from the Sang village. I took the included picture outside where we are staying with part of the village in the background. Yesterday morning we met with the local chief, and we participated in parts of Catholic mass last night.
As I write this, I can hear the Muslim call to prayer from the mosque next door. Please continue to pray for unity among the small number of local Christians and that God will use this EMI team to build bridges and share truth with the Catholic church in this region. May God be glorified in Sister Stan’s vision to build a prayer and worship chapel to unite and encourage believers in this area, as well as through her heart to care for disabled orphans!
“Through [Jesus] then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
Thanks for your continued prayer as we prepare and present designs over the next 4 days!
