On Tuesday we leave for Ghana - thank you for all of your help and support over the past months leading up to our trip! (It's finally here!)
We've had a lot of donations come in directly to CCC, and are happy to say that we are fully funded!
Please pray over the next two weeks as we travel and work alongside our brothers and sisters in Ghana's Upper East. We will be preaching 3 villages as well as at our sister church, and will be teaching a seminar on Community Health Evangelism as a strategy of helping communities to "rise up!" by recongizing and engaging their own God-given resources as the stewards He created us to be. We also will be participating in the baptism of over 50 new believers before we leave.
General prayer requests:
For the advancement of God's Kingdom and the movement of the Holy Spirit.
For the ongoing development of healthy relationships with our Ghanaian brothers and sisters.
Good health, humble attitudes, good communication and good team dynamics.
For the health and protection of our families back home.

Although only a few of us go each year, our mission in Ghana is a Community endeavor. Each year that we have sent a team, the church body as a whole has risen up to gather a blessing and be blessed through our partnership. In the past, we have made dresses to bless the girls at Word International School, and have held a yard sale that blessed our local community while enabling us to encourage our partners in Ghana.
This year we are reaching out to our local community and asking the greater church body around Delmarva to join us in a night of worship as we sing hymns and songs in meditation on the Lord's Prayer, believing that if we seek first the Kingdom of God, He will provide for all that we need.
As part of this evening, we will be sharing about our partnership as well as providing information about local opportunities that we can engage in to build the Kingdom.
Please pray for this event and all of that the Holy Spirit is calling us to, and, if you're in the area, please join us!
