I came to realize the meaning and depth of having a personal relationship with Christ, as opposed to the culture of merely attending church and calling myself a Christian, during one of our student dawn prayer meetings as a first-year student. It was at that moment that I truly surrendered my life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
After graduation in 2012, I decided to do my one year national service with GHAFES as a missionary. It wasn’t my plan initially to serve as a missionary but through the challenge and encouragement by Mr. James Amoah (Now the GHAFES Missions Director), I understood and was convinced about my role in fulfilling the Great Commission in my generation. After that meeting, I believed God had called me in such a time to be a missionary.
Since then my adventure with Jesus as a missionary has been a blessing and life transforming. Currently, my team and I work among Muslims in the Savelugu – Nanton districts of the northern region of Ghana.
Even though we reach out to everyone in the communities we work in, my key interest is with the children and setting up Sunday schools because the children in these communities are the next generation who can change the face of the northern region for Christ.
It is a challenge working in Muslim communities where Christ is considered another prophet or messenger. It is also rewarding to be the ones Christ is using to proclaim the truth and shine His light among Muslims who genuinely have questions and are seeking the true path to eternal life. Our team continues to witness to the growing number of Christ followers from Islamic backgrounds. To Him be the glory!
