Improvements made in Takoradi

OPERATING REPORT FOR JUNE 2019

Dear Brethren,

We thank God for another successful month of operation and I am glad to present to you our operating report for the month of June, 2019.

CLASSROOM WORK

Again, we thank God for successful month of teaching and learning. Students for both the regular and part-time were regular and present in class activities which helped enhance our classroom work.

EVANGELISM / BAPTISMS

We are currently in the rainy season and as such not much evangelism work took place. However, bits of efforts by instructors, students and some past students resulted in the baptism of five (5) souls. These, in addition to the 10 from last month.

SCHOOL COMPUTERS

We are grateful to inform you that we were able to buy five (5) computers for the students to use in their computer class. Ten (10) were needed, and we are happy to get some of them to manage with the eleven students.

REPAIRS / MAINTENANCE

Occasional strong winds accompanying the rains ripped some sheets off the roof of our building and also caused damage to the school’s television set and other electrical connections. This also caused some black-out for some days to the school. A new generator was purchased to enable us have lights until we were re-connected. (We are yet to obtain a new TV set for the students). Termites have also eaten up a door flame and trap door whose repair, maintenance and cleaning raised our expenditure.

We still need to undertake some repairs and maintenance work to the classroom block. We have desired an estimate so we could know how to resolve them as well.

Thank you and may God bless us all.

Joshua Aidoo.

Youth Forum in Takoradi

Dear Brethren,

We send greetings from West Coast School of Preaching, Takoradi, Ghana, West Africa. Thank God we are also doing well and by His grace we continue to see progress in our work here at West Coast School of Preaching.  I am glad to send to you report on our operations and finances for the month of April, 2019.

CLASSROOM WORK

Regular classes were held until 18th of April, 2019 when we had a break. The part-time classes continued throughout the period.

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

Two of our immediate past students organized campaigns during the period in their respective congregations. There were three (3) baptisms in the first campaign while five (5) backsliders were spotted in the second one. Efforts are continuing to restore them.

PERSONAL EVANGELISM

The congregation at Fijai where brother Francis Ayillah preaches organized house to house evangelism. Two of our part-time students also worship here. Two baptisms were recorded during the period. There were other reports from two of our part-time students in the Central Region and in the Eastern Region where evangelism campaigns were held. A total of four (4) baptisms were recorded in those two campaigns.

YOUTH FORUM

Brother Joshua Aidoo organized a one-day motivational youth forum for churches of Christ in and around the Sekondi-Takoradi area. As first of its kind, observations were that the program be adopted and held twice every year. There were about two hundred and sixty (260) youth in attendance including some preachers in the area. These members were drawn from various congregations that uphold what is taught by the Bible and for that matter, West Coast School of Preaching. Brother Joshua has a vision of raising the image of the West Coast School of Preaching so high among the churches of Christ Bible institutions in both the Central and Western Regions, and so, coming up with this youth forum is one of the means to achieve his goal. The theme of the program was : “Preparing a Purposeful Youth For The Future.” And the topics discussed were: (1) “Never Give Up On Your Hopes And Aspirations—By Joshua Aidoo; (2) “Innovation And Entrepreneurship: The Solution To Youth Unemployment”—brother Emamanuel Justice Ofori (a part-time student); (3) “Persistence: The Key To Climb The Success Ladder”—Joshua Aidoo.

POULTRY PROJECT

We have just completed sales of our birds. We will try to include a comprehensive report in our next report.

Thank you and may God bless us all.

Continued progress in Takoradi, Ghana

Dear Brethren,

I send sincere greetings to you all our beloved brethren and thank the most High God for keeping us all safe throughout the month of March, 2019. Our success on this end has largely been the strength the Lord has bestowed on you for you to continue to give us the backing to be able to go through these years of operation. We are sincerely grateful to you all. May He continue to bless us all.

CLASSROOM WORK

We had an intensive and successful classroom work with both instructors and students (regular and part-time) being punctual to class enhancing teaching and learning period. All eleven (11) regular and twenty-two (22) part-time students co-operated for the success we achieved during the period.

PERSONAL EVANGELISM

After taking the regular students through a course in Personal Evangelism during the period, there has been some encouraging reports from the regular students who have demonstrated their skills around the school area and while at home with their various congregations resulting in some baptisms.

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

The congregation at Mpintsin where brother Joshua preaches organized a 5-day night street preaching. Speakers were brother Joshua Aidoo and Douglas Armah, also an instructor at West Coast School of Preaching. The program was streamed live on Facebook. Also the congregation at Kwesimintsim where brother Charles King Arthur preaches organized a 6-day house to house evangelism and night street preaching. This program was also hooked to one of the radio stations in Takoradi. Some of our past students and brother Joshua’s evangelism team joined the congregation in this program. Ten (10) souls were baptized here.

POULTRY PROJECT

Our latest birds are growing well and are due to be sold next month.

 Again I want to express sincere appreciation to you all and appeal for your continuous prayer for us as we do same for you.

New beginnings in Takoradi

We greet you all our dear sponsors and thank you most sincerely for keeping faith with us all through these years. We pray that all of you are doing well.

I am grateful and thankful to God for the opportunity to be sending reports on behalf of the West Coast School of preaching, Takoradi, Ghana, West Africa for the month of January and February, 2019. It has become necessary at this point for me to send the reports due to the absence of Brother Ebenezer Amable who was responsible for sending them.

Due to the administrative changes that took place in the school from the beginning of September 2018 followed by the long break in school work, the school re-opened on the 7th of January, 2019 with eight (8) new students. On re-opening, we needed to do general thorough cleaning in the school.

ORIENTATION FOR NEW STUDENTS

From the 8th to the 11th of January, 2019, the new students were taken through orientation for them to be conversant with what they are required to go through while in the school.

CLASSROOM WORK

Classes for both regular and part-time students began immediately the school re-opened.

EVANGELISM / BAPTISMS

The orientation for the new students included the need to continue evangelizing the area around the school. There was one  (1) baptism during the period. On re-opening, we agreed to revive the five (5) out of six (6 ) congregations which were established by the school. We were able to go to Sofokrom for which we now send some of the students to visit with the congregation.

OPERATING  REPORT FOR FEBRUARY 2019

CLASSROOM WORK

Classroom work for both regular and part-time students went on successfully. All students and instructors were on hand which resulted in a successful teaching and learning

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

Students from the West Coast School of Preaching joined in a campaign for Christ at Ankaful near Cape Coast which was organized by the congregation at Ankaful. The campaign took the form of night-street preaching and personal evangelism during the day. By God’s grace we were blessed with seven (7) souls. Also, one of the students went to his village on one weekend, had personal studies with his prospects, and God rewarded his labor with one soul. 

POULTRY PROJECT

During the month of February, 2019, we took delivery of five hundred (500) day old birds on the 14th of the month. This is the 5th week and we thank God they are growing well. Attached are photos of them

Hope this brief information about the school’s activities from January to February will encourage the brethren, God bless you for your wonderful contribution.

Thank you.

Campaigns in Takoradi, Ghana

Dear Brethren,

We greet you all, fellow workers in the Lord’s vineyard. By God’s grace another month has ended and we are very thankful to the Lord for His guidance and direction and grateful to you all our brethren for your continuous prayer and support to us at West Coast School of Preaching here in Takoradi, Ghana. This month under review also is the last in the year, 2018. Very thanked again to our Maker.

We give below, the report of activities by the school during the month of December, 2018.

PART-TIME CLASSES

The part time classes continued till the third Saturday of the month. Twenty two continually reported for classes all through the period. It continued to be the tur of Joshua Aidoo who took them through the classes.

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

As part of the School’s evangelism campaign, we collaborated with both Mpintsin and Kojokrom congregations to assist them in a major campaign for Christ. All the immediate past students and the current students who had been offered admission were invited to join in. In all about thirty men participated in the campaign. The church at Mpintsin paid for the cost of a live broadcast on a particular radio station here in Takoradi which made it possible for most residents in both the Western and Central Regions to be able to listen into the program. At the end of each day's presentation, time was allotted to the listeners to ask questions and also give directions as to their locations for a possible follow-up. This lasted for five (5) days.

This was continued with another five (5) day campaign at Kojokrom. For lack of funds this last one could not be aired live on the radio. It also streamed live on both Facebook and YouTube. All these were followed with house to house evangelism during the day.

LECTURESHIP

Two lectureships were held at Aiyinase and Kojokrom during the period. In all these brother Joshua Aidoo was part of the speakers.

RECRUITMENT

Recruitment for the regular classes also continued and all prospective students were contacted and interviewed.

His servant,

Ebenezer

Positive transitions in Takoradi

Dear Brethren,

Thank God another opportunity has come for us to report on the school’s activities for the months of October and November, 2018. Sincerely, the recent changes in the school’s administration has been a great challenge to some of us as we would have to quickly learn and adapt to certain situations. This coupled with new recruitment, and continuous classroom work for the part time students, etc. have compelled us to rise to face these challenges in order to succeed and we are grateful and thankful to announce to you that our Lord has given us victory in these situations.

CLASSROOM WORK

We are happy to inform you that classroom work for the part time students have continued successfully. We also have included in our recent campaigns for Christ to fulfill the practical aspect of the their studies.

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

The school undertook a campaign for Christ at Abott from 23rd to 26th of October, 2018 to assist in their evangelism. This campaign took the form of evening night street preaching and day time house to house personal evangelism. All our immediate past students and newly recruits were re-called to join in the campaign. Another campaign for Christ was held in Accra to establish a new congregation for one of the immediate past students to preach there.

As stated above the part time students were used in practical evangelism at Mpintsin where brother Joshua preaches. There was another campaign at Essikadu, near Sekondi and Ntranoa, near Elmina and Ensuekyir in Cape Coast. These campaigns and efforts by the instructors resulted in the baptism of twenty six (26) souls.

POULTRY PROJECT

Three hundred day old chicks (broilers) were ordered and delivered on the 18th of October, 2018. Sales of the birds began early part of this week. We pray we can make good sale out of it to enable us to continue the project. Also the school has eleven (11) local goats which we are rearing.

RECRUITMENT

We continue with the efforts to recruit more of the full time students to begin class when we resume in the first week of January, 2019. We thank you all and continue to ask for your prayers as we also do for you. May God richly bless you al our sponsors to enable us continue with Christ assigned duties.

Dear Brethren,

We greet you all our beloved brethren. Your support, and prayers have seen us through another successful month of operation and we are glad to report to you our operations for the month of June, 2018.

CLASSROOM WORK

Thankfully we have had a month of successful classroom work for both the regular and part time students. Even though we are in the raining season, both instructors and students have been regular in class attendance, thus enhancing teaching and learning. As has been reported to you earlier, our next graduation is scheduled for Saturday August 25, 2018 to be followed immediately by the annual Seminar for Preachers and church Leaders which is organized by this school. The students have been able to combine their preparations towards these two major events on our calendar with classes

POULTRY PROJECT

Our suppliers of the day old chicks had problems in their hatchery, thus losing thousands of chicks from which we were going to have our next supply on July 19, 2018. We have been assured of supply on August 10, 2018.

EVANGELISM

The students continue with their evangelism efforts in the villages around the school. Both instructors and students’ effort resulted in the baptism of five souls in the month of June, 2018.

Classes, campaigns, and chickens in Takoradi

Dear Brethren,

We greet you all once again from the WCSOP, Takoradi – Ghana. Once again we are grateful to be reporting to you our activities.

CLASSROOM WORK

Thank God our classroom work for both the regular and part-time students went on successfully. Both teachers and students were on hand and on time which resulted in effective teaching and learning. There was an end of term examination for the regular students which was also taken by all the students.

EVANGELISM/BAPTISMS

Again, both instructors/students’ efforts resulted in the baptism of 10 souls. We ask for your prayers for the new converts to grow in faith and knowledge of God.

HHI SUPPORTED POULTRY PROJECT

The school’s poultry project is also going well. We have completed selling the last batch of birds and have placed another order of 300 birds to be delivered within this month. Out of the 300 birds, 16 died out of it. These usually die when there are lights out and in their struggle to seek for the feed, they trample upon themselves. This lights out has been our greatest challenge. Also during the period, the prices for their feed went up on the market.

We have just return to the classroom after a month break. Classes have started for both regular and the part-time.

GIFT OF FURNITURE

A Christian brother returning from a trip to London brought us eleven tables and chairs to be used in the classroom. The school spent 235 Cedis to transport these from Accra to Takoradi 

GRADUATION DATE

The date for our next graduation has been scheduled for August 25, 2018. Thirteen regular students are graduating after the two years course of study. Since brother Toby would be in Ghana for this year’s Seminar for Preachers and church Leaders around that time with another elder from the Howe church, we would be sending them the program soon for them to know which part they would play on the day.

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

Also, we plan to have a Campaign for Christ before this last batch of regular students leave after Seminar. This is also scheduled for August 27–30, 2018.

God bless you all.

Eleven (11) souls were baptized during the one week program. Again, we followed the usual partern of night preaching and house to house personal evangelism during the day.

More progress in Takoradi

Dear Brethren,

Again, we are very much thankful to the Almighty God for leading us safely into another year, 2018. It is our prayer that as He did to us in the recent year past, He will continue to grant us peace, wisdom, strength and desire to be able to go through this new year successfully. We also trust that just as He granted our supporters all they needed to assist this school, He would continue to grant them His will and enable all our supporters receive double portion of His blessing. Very thankful to Him again.

CLASSROOM WORK

We returned into session after the end of year break in the middle of the month (January). As has been our usual practice classes for both the regular and part-time students commenced immediately. We are glad to say that teaching and learning have continued successfully as both instructors and students have been present and on time to go though the time table.

PART-TIME SCHEDULE

Before we went on break, brother Steven Ashcraft had made us aware that this program must conform to the schedule of the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver, which the school in Accra is also following. Instead of all the instructors reporting to teach a class this day, (Saturday), one instructor must complete his course and another continues in that order. The Director, Matthew Ackah has begun to take the first schedule, continuing for twenty Saturdays. While fulfilling the schedule of Bear Valley, we also have observed that this has also given our students better concentration on the course

EVANGELISM/BAPTISM

Both instructors and students’ effort contributed in the conversion of twelve (12) souls during the break. The students, upon their return to school are continuing with their evangelism in the villages around the school. They continue to preach also in the village’s information Center. We stated this in our last report.

HHI SUPPORTED POULTRY PROJECT

We are glad to report to you that this project is going on successfully. As we send this report, about a hundred of the two hundred and seventy one birds have been sold. We continue to search for market to sell the remainder. We remain committed with our plans to keep the project running. We have booked another three hundred (300) day old chicks to be delivered in the third week of March, 2018. We pray plans for our suppliers do not change.

MOTORCYCLE

The donation of the motor bike had helped our course tremendously. While providing transportation for our evangelism in the areas around the school, it has also supported some urgent needed errands of the women in the kitchen. It also has helped the school carry sick students to the nearby hospital even at odd times. We once again wish to thank the donors. It has been a wonderful assistance to the school.

Finally, we again thank you all, especially our most cherished sponsors for your readiness and willingness to you all and pray the Father to grant you all your heart desire to be able to see us all through another successful year. Once again we say “THANK YOU” and our special greetings to the entire brethren.

Classes, evangelism, and poultry in Takoradi

Dear Brethren,

We are happy to report to our operation for the month of November, 2017

CLASSROOM WORK

Classroom work was successful for both the full time and part time classes. All full time students (13) and (16) part time students were in attendance. Also, all five instructors were present making us have a successful teaching and learning period    

PERSONAL EVANGELISM

The students continued their personal evangelism and visitation in the villages around the school. Both students and instructors’ efforts resulted in the baptism of seventeen (17) souls. The provision of the motor cycle has greatly enhanced the evangelism and visitation schedules of the school

POULTRY

Again, we are happy to report to you that we had a very successful operation of the poultry project. All two hundred and forty-three (243) have been sold. We already have placed an order for three hundred day-old chicks to be delivered  on Monday, 11th December, 2017. We also have placed an initial order for twenty (20) bags of broiler starter feed.

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

Our intended campaign for Christ which was fixed for the second week of December has again been re-scheduled. The brethren at Axim where we intend to have the campaign have reported to us that there have been a severe water shortage in the area. Taps are not flowing and the brethren believe until the problem is over, it would be difficult for us to have the campaign as planned. We are in talks with Shama congregation and would go there if our discussions are concluded successfully.

Thank you and God bless you all.

The Director goes to Ghana

From Nov. 10-18 it was my pleasure and privilege to visit all 3 Bear Valley extensions in the country of Ghana. I was accompanied by West Africa Regional Director, Steven Ashcraft, who also planned everything. We had originally planned to visit the graduation in Kpalime, Togo, but political unrest made it too dangerous. 

We began in Accra, the largest city in Ghana, and visited the school in Nsawam/Doboro, which is on the outskirts of the city. This school has 12 full time students (who will soon graduate) and 30 in the extended program.

From there we went across to the city of Takoradi to visit the West Coast School of Preaching. I taught in this school in 2011 but have not been able to go back since then, so this was enjoyable for me. It was good to see some brethren that I had not seen in a long time and to visit with the current student body.

From there we made the long drive (12+ hours) to Tamale in northern Ghana. Tamale is a city of nearly a half million people and is 95% ethnic Muslim. While converting Muslims to Jesus remains a difficult challenge, the men trained in the Bear Valley extension there are doing an outstanding job withstanding against error. We were privileged to be able to attend the graduation and to witness the matriculation of the new class of 18 students!

We were blessed with safe travel and the fellowship of likeminded brethren. Counting those in the extended programs in Accra and Takoradi, there are nearly 100 students in Ghana. Please pray for them.

Brotherly,

Keith

The students continued their personal eangelism and visitation to the villages around the school. Both the efforts of students and instructors resulted in the baptism of fifteen (15) souls.

MOTOR CYCLE

Agriculture Seminar in Takoradi

CLASSROOM WORK

The school went on a two-week break after the seminar in August and returned on the 18th of September. Classes began immediately for both the regular and part-time students. Three more students have joined in the part-time class bringing the number to sixteen.  

HEALING HANDS INTERNATIONAL POULTRY PROJECT

Earlier discussion had gone on between healing hands international and the school on setting up a poultry project. The main purpose for this project is for both students and instructors to learn about keeping poultry that would help sustain them in the preaching work.

Funds ($3000) had been provided by HHI to put up a structure, buy two hundred and fifty day-old chicks, provide their feed, till maturity, among others. Brother Ebenezer Udofia from Healing Hands International arrived in Ghana on the 20th of September to the 22nd to organize a one-day workshop on poultry keeping for fifty-four brethren, including students who were in attendance. The birds are in their third week and are growing well.

PROVISION OF A MOTOR-BIKE

The school made an appeal to brother Steven Ashcraft to help provide the school with a motor bicycle to enable the students use it in evangelism and visitation in the villages around the school. By God’s grace an anonymous donor has provided us with $1200 which has enabled the school to purchase a brand new motorcycle. 

CAMPAIGN FOR CHRIST

The Howe church has provided the school with $800 to undertake the second major campaign for Christ this year. Unfortunately what we know to be the minor rainy season has turned out to be a major rainfall.

Arrangement with a congregation at Foso in the central region had been done to assist in their campaign in the middle of November. Full report on this campaign will be sent to you after we have it.

Thank you and God bless you all.

Before we went on vacation the students were instructed to attach themselves to congregation in their area and do some evangelism. They were instructed to bring back upon reopening their reports, including pictures of studies and baptisms. All instructors also did same. A total number of twenty-nine (29) souls were baptized in these exercises. 

OBITUARY

During the month of June, one of our regular students’ father passed on. We delegated some instructors and students to represent the school at the funeral. A donation of GHC 200 was made to the student, Solomon Essah.

We thank you all for your prayer and great concerned for the work here. May the good Lord richly bless you all.
