Hi Friends!

As many of you know, for the past three years I’ve taken mission trips to Ghana and have worked with Nyame Bekyere Christian School. Nyame Bekyere is a rural village outside of Accra - the capital of Ghana. Each year I visited the school I was able to meet a specific need with your help and support. In 2015 we were able to supply textbooks for the entire school. In 2016 we were able to purchase desks and chairs for the school. In 2017 we were able to purchase school supplies, additional textbooks, and provide computer training for the school staff.

August 16th I’ll be headed back to Ghana for my 4th mission trip. And this year I have a challenging project that I really need your help to accomplish. Last year a company in Accra Ghana donated two computers to the school. That opened a window to a new level of education and training for the school. But there’s still a barrier. The school has no internet access. But, with your help, we can change that.

I’m launching a 2-part campaign. The first part is an Internet Service Campaign. Only $1500 will not only get internet service installed at the school but will also cover internet service for a full year. Friends, we can make that happen. The 2nd part of the campaign is an iPad Drive. Many people have upgraded their iPads over the past 5 years. I’m looking for your old iPads that are sitting somewhere collecting dust. I’m looking for iPad 2’s, iPad 3’s, iPad Air 1’s and any other older iPads that you aren’t using anymore. If you work with a school system or a business that has old iPads, I want them. I want to collect 6-7 iPads that I can take with me to donate to the school so that the instructors can have access to technology inside of their classrooms. 

Just imagine!! With internet access and wifi throughout the school and iPads in each classroom we will kick open the doorway to a whole new level of education for the school and really prepare those kids to thrive when they get to high school. That’s what I want!! I want the kids in that village to be able to thrive in high school and graduate to live full, successful lives. 

Friends, I really need your help. The total cost of this trip with the internet campaign included is going to be $4,300. But every year, you all have been so supportive and have helped me tremendously. I trust that you will, once again, help me accomplish this vision. Please make your donations online at www.GiveSendGo.com/NBCSMission or send your check/money order to Michael M. Smith Ministries, 1409 Oak Knoll Court, Virginia Beach VA 23464. If you’d like to donate an iPad, please contact me at MichaelMSmithMinistries@gmail.com for details.

Folks, if you’re like me, you don’t mind giving when you know the what you give will make a real difference - and there is a person who is being accountable for what you give. Well, together we are making a real difference. And, as always, I’m going to keep you updated on what we accomplish together on this trip through your gifts.

Thank you so much for being a part of this mission. Let’s make the future brighter for Nyame Bekyere Christian School. I’ll go - you give and pray - and together we will see great things happen!!

Update #1

In July we announced that I would be taking my 4th mission trip to Ghana in as many years. I want to thank you, my friends, family and supporters for your incredible support of this mission journey. Over $2000 has been donated to assist me with this mission trip. However, much more help is needed.

There are two goals I’ve set for this trip. Firstly, I’d like to have internet installed at the school so that the school can be connected to the abundance of online resources available for the teachers and students. The cost for the internet installation and service for one year totals $1500. Secondly, I’d like to collect 6-7 older iPads that can be taken to the school for the teachers to use in their classroom. This will provide them access to a new world of technology and resources right in their classrooms. 

Friends, I need your help to accomplish these goals. Please allow the Lord to touch your heart to be a blessing to this school. Make a donation today and help me with this mission trip. If you’d like details and instructions for donating an iPad to the school, contact me at MichaelMSmithMinistries@gmail.com.

During my preparation for this trip I found myself connected to some wonderful people, such as Rachel Watson, who had a vision to do a fundraiser to sponsor the tuition for the students of the school for the upcoming school term and has nearly accomplished that goal already. I’ve met physicians, attorneys and pastors who have a great interest in the work that we’re doing. There are wonderful new things on the horizon.

Please pray for me. I need God’s grace and wisdom as I work to accomplish these goals and be a blessing. Education is a field where I have no training nor experience. However, I know God pre-pares the called… and I’m simply answering the call.
