(Ghana)–Funding is needed to help two programs that are leading the needy to Christ in Ghana, West Africa. African Enterprise is sponsoring two training programs. A-E’s Michael Cassidy says outreach to 200 street children is just one focus. “The girls are being trained in dressmaking and hair dressing and that sort of thing. That’s a three-year training. The boys we teach electrics, repairing of air conditioning systems, carpentry and so forth to bring them to Christ, disciple them and then to give them a qualification.” Former prostitutes are also coming to Christ as they learn a skilled trade. Cassidy says there’s a reason these programs are important. “We say that our aim is to evangelize the cities of Africa through word and deed, in partnership with the church, so there is a deeds side. We believe God is leading us now to be proactive about a much stronger teaching, discipling and kingdom ministry.” Cassidy says 210-dollars can support one person in each program.
