I wish to submit a report on activities going on at the Bear Valley Bible Institute, Tamale-Ghana.
In line with the decision of the Board of Director, there was the need to make a followup to the various congregations our graduates are working with. In implementing this directive, the board was divided into teams. The first team was made of Brother Francis Ayine,(Coordinator), Brother Adjei Mensah, (Dean of Students), and Brother Jacob Adjei Yeboah, (Administrator).
They were able to visit seven congregations all situated in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
The preachers working with these congregations are:
1. Preacher Rockson Akugri - Tongo Central Church
2. Preacher Isaac Ayamga - Seregu Church
3. Preacher Jacob Awintoya- Sunburungu Church
4. Preacher Roger Ayilah - Bolgatanga Church
5. Preacher Stephen Abugbilla -Atuba Church
6. Preacher Jacob Ninchema - Kuka Church
7. Preacher Joseph Molsak - Bawku Central Church
The team has since returned and the feedback from the various congregations where they visited is very encouraging. The team also discussed with the congregations how best they could seek the financial welfare of their preachers. This is because reports reaching the Institute state that most of the preachers are not offered any support, and the fear is that this might discourage the preachers and probably make them seek jobs which can offer them some financial support to care for their families.
It is hoped that by this visits members of the various congregations will be edified.
The second team is also preparing to take up visits to congregations situated in the eastern corridor - Yendi, Salaga, Saboba and Zabzugu-Tamale.
Once again we greet all in his vineyard and also express our profound thanks to all those who in diverse ways make these activities possible.
