Roof and floor for church
The faithful at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Bunkpurugu, Ghana have done all they can do piecemeal, bringing this structure to this point. Help us complete it by donating for the roof and floor. This structure will have multiple uses and will include a worship space, a training center for pastor and deaconess development and a venue where events needing an auditorium can be held. For over 60 years LCMS Missionaries worked mightily to establish a growing church in Ghana. A day and half drive from the capitol, Bunkpurugu will eventually be a major training center for the Northern Region. Praise God for St. Andrews’ evangelistic zeal in the midst of their Muslim neighbors. Already having established eight congregations and twelve preaching stations, help St. Andrews make their impact for the Kingdom even greater.
wells for ghana
Imagine having to walk 3 miles to the nearest clean water source. You have your 4 month old daughter slung across your back and your empty 5 gallon jerry can in your hand. As you trudge up the hill on the uneven ground you are silently praying; for your safety, for strength, that you won’t twist an ankle… She knows she has to do this for her family, even though the round trip will take at least 4, maybe 6 hours of her day. What if she gets sick, or hurt or simply can’t manage the 4 hours? There is the local stream, the place where everyone washes their clothes; the place where the cattle walk in to get a drink…
Many people in rural Ghana don’t have to imagine the story above. They are living it. When the ELCG goes into a village and drills a well, the impact on lives is immediate and life changing. More than punching holes in the ground the ELCG establishes a relationship with the village, and with the help of the village elders introduces the village to the Living Water. Maybe in the future there may be a school built, but for now there is the well. It gives health, community and time.
When you join us by giving to the Ghana Water Fund you do more than give water. You give health, safety, time and community. You give the ELCG the chance to make an eternal impact in people’s lives.
Please give today.
