Thanks and Appreciation
We thank God for His faithfulness. May His name be praised for ever and ever. Amen.

Burkina Faso Assemblies of God Pastors’ Training Program
As a result of my training of over three thousand Assemblies of God pastors’ wives in February, I had the opportunity of been invited once again to train over 500 key pastors from 6 regions in the second city of Bobodialaso. This church have chosen a new path, one which seeks not only to evangelized souls, plant churches and prepare them for Heaven, but also to undertake wholistic transformation and development, and be God’s hands and feet in their families and communities. Interestingly, while pastors had their training program in the mornings,  670 professionals, public, private and business people in the city went through ” Work is Worship” in the evenings. All domains including the market squares are all to be brought under the Lordship of Jesus Christ!
Upon my return to Ouagadougou, the capital city, the governor of the city invited me for a meeting where we discussed a future conference for professionals and key government officials. Kindly pray with us.

Ghana Vision Conference
As part of our annual leadership training programs, twenty-one key leaders were taken through a week of Vision Conferences. These leaders comprised of pastors, women leaders, youth and student leaders from 18 local churches in the regions of Ashanti, Volta, Brong Ahafo, Central and Greater Accra. Various seed projects and other activities were planned to give practical meaning and also impact their communities through the demonstration of God’s love.

Visit of Friends: Redeemer Lutheran Church, Spokane USA
We were priviledged to host a team of 46 from Redeemer Lutheran Church, Spokane, Washingston State. It was a profound experience for all of us when they visited interesting places in Ghana and also visited the Good Samaritan International School where they interacted, played, danced and worked with the children and townfolks. The experience was so impactful as some of the team left in tears.

Liberia: Graduation of Samaritan Strategy Trainning Team
 After two years of intensive training, (spanning across two Vision Conferences with over 230 leaders in Monrovia, Liberia), 25 were carefully selected and trained for two additional years in the Wholistic Transformational materials; equipping them through Training of Trainers, mentoring and empowering. I had the the honor to graduate and commission the Samaritan Strategy Monrovia team, who now have the baton to also train other leaders across this lovely but yet impoverished country. To God be the Glory.
