Josiah Abedu-Kennedy is vice president of the Association of Fundamental Baptist Churches in Accra, Ghana. He has been constructing Crossroads Baptist Church in Dodowa, the greater Accra region of Ghana. A financial grant from Regular Baptist International has funded portions of the construction. Josiah sends the following update.
Let me first share with you the joy of the month. One person was baptized and was added to the church last month. We have three more persons getting ready to follow the Lord in water baptism. Many have accepted Christ from our soul winning and outreach evangelism program. Continue to pray with us as we preach and teach the gospel of our Lord against the many churches in our area that are preaching the prosperity gospel.
Another joy is we have all our floors done—both church auditorium and office. We had it all done with broken floor tiles. We also have the final painting in the church auditorium done. We are still working on the outer wall; we are adding additional blocks to the foundation because of the continuous downpour of the rains. And because of the heavy rainy season, outside work is slow.
Another joy is that we were able to pay and submit our documents for permanent electricity from the electricity company of Ghana. Just one week left of the three weeks given us for the waiting period. So by the end of next week we hope to be connected to the national power.
The sad news is that a week after we worked on our metal doors, thieves broke into our church and made away with all our sound system gadgets. They were able to break part of the wall, climb and pass under the roof, get into the church building, and break the locks from inside.
So over the weeks we have been working hard to reinforce the doors and locks, closing every gap under the roof. We are working on putting more lights on the church property too.
Please continue to pray with us.
Let me use this opportunity to say a big thank-you for all your assistance and a special thanks to donors.
