I am happy to write to tell you about some of the happenings here. We thank you for your support of our work here in Takoradi and pray God's blessing on you all.
In this report there will be many pictures which will update you on four recent events --our sister's funeral, the 11th graduation, the sixth Men's Forum at Ituma and the Master's classes
with brother Gary Fallis. Here are pictures of the event.
The funeral of our late sister Augustina Appiah Dadzie has been reported previously without pictures and we attach some pictures. The pictures attached include her grieving husband.
On Saturday, October 29 the Ituma church on campus of West Coast organized the sixth of the series of Men's Forum. Sixteen congregations were represented. We discussed the 5 decades of restoration preaching in Ghana and current issues in the church. A paper was presented on 50 years of the church of Christ in Ghana and the celebration of the 50th anniversary this year. This
was followed by the discussion of matters and issues arising in three groups.
The 11th Graduation was held on Saturday, November 5 2011, for 11 men who completed their studies in 2009. They were issued with Bear Valley certificates (the first time at West Coast), and the
certificates were presented to them by brother Gary Fallis who represented Bear Valley Bible Institute of
Denver at the ceremony. Ten of the graduates were in attendance. The eleventh, Musah Alhassan, could not make it to the graduation. Please, see attached pictures.
It is customary for the graduates to worship with the Ituma Church on Campus. They do all officiating, and are given some money by the church for their transportation back home. Click here to pictures of this event.
Brother Gary was here for both the graduation and the Master's classes as well. For the Week
of November 7-11, he taught Christian Education, and for this week, November 14-18, he is teaching Church Planting (Missions-1). See pictures of the staff and students here.
Regular classes have ended for the first quarter of school. Our students are this week engaged in
daily evangelism in the communities around the campus.
Please continue to pray for us at West Coast for these are trying times for us -- school, teacher and taught.
Thank you for enabling us to serve the Master this side of the Atlantic.
Your servant for Jesus' sake,
Daniel K Ampadu-Asiamah
