It was a beautiful trip to Kwahu on Saturday 9th September 2018 in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
I and my team, F.I. owusu (General Overseer and Senior Pastor, Fruitful Christians Church) and Prince Nana,(team member, Head of State Awards, HOSA) met with the newly installed King of Kwahu, HE Okwahuman, the traditional ruler of the area, Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong 11. (Picture Of I and him will be taken upon our next visit in his royal attire as he is not permitted to take pictures without being properly dressed. However, during the meeting, he was there)
We were warmly welcomed by the King himself & his council members, & the chiefs of surrounding towns & villages (see pics attached)
The purpose of our visit was to introduce Balm of Joy Foundation ( which basically sends children back to school) and Funmi Tayo-Ajimoko Ministry (FTAM- an evangelical outreach) so as to engage the King & his chiefs to understand the ways we can help them in line with our 2018 program of reaching out to selected regions, towns & villages.
After a lengthy discussion, we came to the conclusion of building them a library (or repaint one of their schools) to help increase the literacy level of the children & increase their interest in education.
We also agreed to convene a Love Feast to bring the children together & encourage the talented ones amongst them with scholarship awards for the most outstanding academic records or less privileged but desirous to be educated.
It was also agreed that FUNMI TAYO-AJIMOKO (Evangelism) MINISTRY will reach out to the people of the land by evangelising the Word Of God through Jesus Christ by offering bibles and Tshirts in two of their popular local language, Twi and Ewe.
We also visited the Kwahu Presbyterian Church Of Ghana (the 1st Presbyterian Church in Ghana) which is situated at the mountain top of Kwahu.The church is over a 100 years old. It is called Ramseyer Memorial Church, Abetifi, Mpraeso (video attached)
We hereby solicit donations from well-meaning individuals and men & women of goodwill with a charitable heart for their token of support towards our cause.
Your labour Of Love will not be in vain, amen
Peace and Love
Your Sister in Christ Jesus FTA
