A children’s home provides hope in Ghana.

By December 1, 2003

Ghana (MNN)–The spiritual fight over Ghana continues. Islamic influence is being countered by growing evangelistic groups.

Among them, Every Child Ministries. ECM shows the love of Jesus through mercy ministries to homeless street children, including Haven of Hope Home for the youngest and most vulnerable of them.

ECM’s Lorella Rouster says the atmosphere is ripe for their work at the “Haven of Hope” children’s home. Not only that, but they are looking at an exciting growth pattern.

“We have 25 children there, right now, and we are working on doubling the capacity within the next two years. I don’t know where we’ll stop. God will tell us that. It is right now celebrating its first anniversary.”

ECM emphasizes showing the love of Jesus to the neediest of African children in practical ways and using African nationals to train their own people. Rouster says they need a lot of support.

“We could really use help with providing solar power to the home. We have no electricity there at all. The children are using kerosene lanterns and I’m always afraid that when they get up in the night, they’re going to tip those things over and start a fire.”

ECM also works to liberate slave children and help them rebuild their broken lives through the power of Jesus.
