Volume 13 - Number 42     

AKWAABA - Bro. Nana

Barima Sarpong Kumankuma II
(Chief of Adankrono, Ghana)

It is an honor to have brother “Nana” with us from Adankrono, Ghana. Nana is the chief of the town of Adankrono which located in Ghana’s Eastern Region (E/R). Nana was converted during our 96 Ghana Campaign. Since that time he has labored hard on behalf of the church and Lord’s work in the E/R.

He has also been working to encourage change in local customs and traditions that are found to be in conflict with New Testament Christianity. He will be in our area for a month or so - reporting to various congregations that have supported our work in the E/R. He will be speaking for us later in the month.

We can all see a lot of work has been accomplished recently. Most of the block work has been done on the new foyer. In the photo below you can see bro. Delbert standing in front of one of the forms for the columns that will support the driveway portico. The next step is to pour the columns along with the tie beam for the foyer. In addition David Spade has been helping us with some of the modifications on the inside of the building.
