Dan Wells is a deacon at First Baptist Church, Oxford, Mich. He and his wife, Anita, are missionaries with Open Door Baptist Mission and spend their summers in Ghana, West Africa, doing multiple VBS programs using Regular Baptist Press materials supplied by Gospel Literature Services. The Wellses send the following letter:
After our youth ministries in Apam and Mumford, we moved on to Cape Coast for a three-day program and preached on Sunday both morning and evening.
God reaped many souls during this ministry. Our first night God reaped nine souls, as these individuals confessed Jesus Christ as Lord. The second night of ministry, God doubled our attendance; 19 souls God called unto Himself. Our third night God continued to work and draw those unto Himself; over 40 responded to the gospel and 11 confessed Christ as Lord and Savior.
God gave us further encouragement on Sunday when nine of those saved at VBS walked over two hours to be in church Sunday morning and then returned again Sunday night. Was great to see them in church. Our VBS
location was at a school quite some distance from the current church location. We evangelized the area for VBS because that is where the church is relocating to and in the process of constructing their building. The church will also be using the same local school where VBS was to continue a Bible club with the children every Saturday beginning Aug. 2.
We then moved on to Makesimm for a two-day VBS. A wonderful time here with the children. Some of the most obedient that we have experienced in our ministry. So thankful for them. God saved 19 souls the first night, then attendance increased from 71 to over 240. The church was packed Ghana style. God reaped 15 souls the second night.
Today we just wrapped up a two-day ministry at Budaburim (Liberian refuge camp). The first day’s attendance was 141 with 27 souls saved. Today God blessed us with 324 in attendance, and 20 confessed Jesus Christ as Lord
Friday we begin a two-day ministry in Ashaiman (Gospel Light Baptist Church). Ministry on Friday and Saturday and preaching there on Sunday. Then to Accra for a workshop for all the Accra ministries (five total), then to Apam and Mumford Aug. 5–10.
