Awomberew Mission Report
by Ed Arcton
Date: 03th – 05th May 2019
We arrive safety at Awomberew village for our evangelism outreach activities. We began with prayers for the community same day and at evening we were at the Church Service for worship with the local Church. Rev. Ed Acton mounted the pulpit with teachings that brought our mind and spirit to the light. The Scriptural Text was from the book of Genesis and the gospel of John. The Topic was Light of God. In the book of Genesis 1:1-4 & 14 and 1 John 1:1-14 there were two different lights. What are these Lights? “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. Again in Genesis 1:14 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years”: Rev. Ed Arcton taught about the spiritual light in genesis 1:3 and the natural light we see in the sky in Genesis 1:14. We were enlightened after the teaching Service. Rev. Ed Acton further explains the spiritual light from the book of John 1. This was an uncovering of the truth as to know Jesus Christ, the Son of God to be the light of the world. He was the One the apostles gave an account and testified that he is the Light of the world. They saw and bone witness to the Light that all may believe. John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of “GRACE and TRUTH”. Click here to view the sermon.
Early hours the following day morning we were in the Church for morning devotion with members of the local Church. Pastor Obed led the morning devotion. He encourages the members of the local Church to cultivate the habit of prayer, He talked about the “Christian and Prayer”. The scriptural text was from the gospel of Luke 11:1. “And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples”.
He said that, the disciples always saw Jesus healing the sick and doing many other miracles by Himself. They also walked together, ate together and did a lot of things together with the Messiah. More so the bible records that Jesus woke up early hours to pray and obviously they saw him when he was returning from his prayer time. Jesus life of Prayer should be an example for us all to pray without ceasing. Pastor Obed said a prayerless Christian is a powerless Christian; He explained that the disciples of Jesus saw the power of prayer in the life of Jesus and desire to pray as he did. They said to him “teach us to pray”. He then led the Church into serous prayer time that morning. Everybody prayed earnestly and with great passion. It was a blessing and precious time in the presence of God for a renewal of strength. Click here to view the full message
At the evening Church Service Rev Ed Arcton talked about why the Church must pray before God intervene in the affairs of men and world. God will not go against His word. In Genesis1:26. God gave man the dominion over the earth. He also said it was very important for every individual to be prayerful. Matthew 26:40  And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? When Jesus return to them he didn’t say to them, don’t worry, I will pray for you but asked the disciples to pray too themselves so that they will not fall into temptation. Pastor Isaac took over and led the Church into prayer session. The full sermon is here
On Sunday morning at Church Service Pastor Obed Richards led the Church unto prayers before the Sunday school teachings by Rev Ed Arcton. He taught about the benefit of the Word of God. The Word of God is God according to Scriptures “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men”. (John 1:1-3) When we are full of the Word of God, the life of God fills our hearts and overflows. If we have the power of the word of God dwells richly inside us, we also have the power of God in us. The Word of God is Good news because it brings light and life to man. The Word of God must be supreme in our life as a Christian, and our life must reflect the life of Christ who is in us for other to see and believe. When the Word of God is grounded and rooted in us, springs of living water overflows out of us. The Word of God strengthens us to be an overcomer and to live a holy life. We were all challenge and inspire to study the Bible every day. Our passion and love for God should drive us to study the Bible and live it wherever we are. He also talk about the daily trails, temptation and testing we face everyday as christian who love God and want to obey Him with all our heart. Click here to view the full sermon.
Pastor Isaac Fiifi Takyi preached that day at Church. His topic was “The plan and purpose of God”. It was a blessing that Sunday morning as the church hearing the good news preached in their own mother tongue powerfully. Pastor Isaac said, the mind of someone reveals his plan and purpose, he said the mind of God reveals His purpose to mankind. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Our relationship with God is a unique, the moment we find out His plan and purpose for our life, things begins to change for the better for us. God thought for you and me is the thought of peace not evil, and to bring us to an expected end. Proverbs 19:21 says “[There are] many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand”. Its only God’s plan that will stand forever in our life, Again in Isaiah 14:24 puts it this way; The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand. Today’s sermon at Church touches the hearts of everyone. Everybody begin to understand and appreciate God’s love, how deep and wide is the Love of God toward all who believes. The book of Romans 8:28 concludes y saying “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Click here to view the full message.
