Her Name is Rahamas

Rahamas lives at the orphan home in Ghana, West Africa. She is a bundle of joy for her caretakers. As you can see from the photo, she is in her native dress. What you can't see is that she was dancing all around the room, much to the delight of everyone present.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

The (Earthly) Fatherless at Anfaani

I just received word from my missionary friends in the Northern Region that some of the fatherless at Anfaani Orphan Home need help. Specifically, there are 4 children in dire need of support. Anfanni has requested a mere $12.00 per child per month to help with food and a few basic necessities.

Anfanni is run by an amazing Christian woman named Emelia. Her mother founded the orphan home many years ago. She died last year and now Emelia is dedicated to living out her legacy of taking in the motherless and fatherless children from the remote mud-hut villages. Some of these children have been rejected because they are a twin or triplet (seen as evil by some). Others were rejected because the mother died in childbirth. Still others are taken there because the family cannot afford to feed them.

Regardless of the reason, the need is there.

Can you help? Will you help?

If the answer is "YES!", click

100% of all donated funds will go directly to Anfanni Orphan Home.

On behalf of Emelia and the children, thank you.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27

Worship in Ghana

My dear friends and missionaries to Ghana, Rev. Pat and Peggy Ozment, recently visited a small village west of Tamale. The villagers had gathered to help raise funds to place a sheet metal roof on a mud-hut church. The video below is a glimpse into their way of worship. Click here to read more about these villagers.
