Powerful Women’s Ministry in Ghana
The women’s ministry that Ester started in 1981 is based on Acts 4:32, “All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own,but they shared everything they had.”
An Angel Appeared to Me
During my recent trip to Ghana I met a truly remarkable woman, Ester. She is confident and humble. She had peace, hope and compassion in her eyes. I met a true angel today.
She wanted to know if I would take the time to speak to her women’s group. They are just a group of women who are taking care of those who are suffering: the old, the sick, the poor, widows and single parents with small children. They support these people financially, physically and emotionally.
Ester and her group of women do not live a life of luxury and abundance. They use the little that they do have to help others.
I struggle to erase the moment when I met Ester from my thoughts.
One Bible Only
Ester and her women’s group currently travel from home to home in their community every Sunday. They share the Gospel and build God’s Kingdom in the rural areas of Ghana. Their heart’s desire is to not only share the Gospel from home to home but to share the Gospel from town to town. Ester is the only member of their group who owns a Bible.
Ester and her group of women cannot expand their ministry without your help. What do these women need to reach poverty-stricken people in Ghana? The answer is simple: Bibles.
Acts 8: 30 – 31 “Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?”Philip asked. “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.”
