MISSION: Ghana

Our mission is to support the operating budget of a hugely underfunded Christian pre-school (CARE) that is located in a large impoverished and prominently Muslim community called Nima, in Accra, Ghana.

For over 30 years and even with significant contrasts in faith, Muslim families have entrusted this school with the care and education of their small children (ages 2-7). It is where the practice of “Teaching Christ at all times, and, when necessary, use words” is graciously demonstrated.

CARE’s mission is to influence their students towards Christ as they serve and love in His name. The Staff and teachers lovingly and patiently toil over the fertile hearts of their students by planting seeds of the Gospel. Even after the children advance to primary school, the staff continue to pray for the Holy Spirit to water, tend, and protect those vulnerable seeds of Truth.

Most families in Nima can not afford to pay all of the school’s fees, which are necessary to keep the school in operation. CARE strives to not turn any students away. At this time, Mission: Ghana (the Nima Project) is only able to consistently provide 17% of their already humble budget. 

Our goal is to reach and sustain 100% of their shortfall so this school can move beyond surviving to truly thrive in Christ.

UPCOMING TRIP

We are currently preparing a team for a mission trip set for September 2023.  Unfortunately, we can not take any more people on this trip, but contact us to get on an Interest List for the next one.

PRAY

  • Thank God with us for protecting all the students, staff, and their families during the pandemic. Not one person contracted the Covid virus.
  • Pray that the seeds of the Gospel find student’s tender hearts and grow many times over.
  • Pray that God will provide a new School Director. Mr. Alfred and his wife Charlotte have been serving since the school was established (over 30 years ago) and they desire to turn the reigns over to a new passionate and qualified Director.
  • That God will provide for 100% of CARE’s needs. If He sees fit to do so through us, that He guide and direct us to that end.
  • The health and security of the students and staff.
