He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers. (Psalm 1:3) Tree planting, Jesus style! Bolga Ministry in Action David and Ursula have been helping three young churches in and around Vea, in the Upper East Region. Many of Heather helped teach at a prayer meeting and Bible study that these people walked over ten miles to worship under meets two times a week behind the Akurugus house. the Baobab tree. It is was a privilege to worship with them and humbling to think that I would not have walked so far. David hopes to help them plant another church closer to the area where they live. God is opening doors and many are hungry for the truth they are finding in the living Pure God. At the Akurugus home they have youth meetings twice a week. Currently, they constantly have around fifty children and teens. They had to move out of their little home to the back of the house. On this particular night I was teaching a lesson on David and Jonathon. The children took on the different characters in the story. Learning the stories and truths of God through story telling or drama is loved by the kids. I had a hard time not laughing every time the little ones who were the sheep in the story had to go baabaa. Every time they heard the word sheep! Jaden, guess what is for supper?! Smoked donkey!
  • 3. V O L. 2 0 I S S U E . 0 1 PAGE 3 Jonathan Two Months Later This little ones mother died not long after his birth. His birth mother received prenatal care during a difficult pregnancy and he was born healthy and strong. However, shortly after his birth the mother began swelling. The father went to a juju man who said she was ill due to a spirit not medical reason. Sacrifices were given to the spirit and poured on a tree. She died shortly after the ceremony and this innocent little one began to be starved to drive away the evil. Romana was contacted by Christian women in the area inquiring if she could help. The Akurugus and myself had long discussions with the family before they released the eleven month old into our care. Unfortunately, their arguments were more focused around concern for the evil spirit than the childs welfare. To make matters worse it took four more months for Social Welfare to sign the documents to release him into Beacon Houses care. The head nurse at a clinic near the Akurugus house said that Jonathan was not a case of malnutrition but starvation. By the time he came to us he was just a bag of bones. We put him on a special high calorie diet just for starvation cases and in just a few months he is at the appropriate weight. Praise God he is doing wonderfully. Thank you for all your prayers Gracie Romana was working hard to get all the legal paperwork signed so Gracie could travel to the childrens home in Legon to receive the specialized medical needs. Ursula was caring for this sweet little Beacon House baby girl during this time. We had just celebrated her weight gain to 14lbs at 11 months old and looking forward to her first birthday. She became ill on a Thursday evening and on Friday saw medical care. In this particular area doctors are very few and do not work on weekends. She fought hard to hold on to life but slipped away. Ursula was correct in saying, This work we all do for Jesus is not an easy one! Gracie taking a bath in Bolga Lake
