Some problems encountered:
1. Financial problems: We encountered financial problems due to the problem our satellites churches faced. we used to receive letter of request from them to support their brethren seriously in need of help.
-Assist them when a member is dead.
-Helping to send some of our youths to assist them every Sunday.
2. Lateness: From Wiamoase church to all the satellites Churches, lateness is a big problem. People are not time conscious, but we hope things will change this year.
3. Marital problems: A lot of the members in our satellites wanted to divorce their partners because marriage rites have not been performed. Through our interventions, three men went to perform it and later came to be baptized at Boaman church.
Our Forecast for 2017.
1. Focus on evangelism: Through public preaching, house to house, market places, in transport,etc. Public preaching will be done every quarterly: From wiamoase to all the satellites churches.
2. To increase our attendance through edification and benevolence among all our satellites churches.
3. Promote strong and healthy relationship among members and our visitors.
4. To increase our weekly attendance and giving.
5. To raise funds to support Boanim church to roof their building and start worshipping in by the close of this year.
Our theme for this year is : LET CHRIST BE KNOWN AMONG YOU!
We beginning 2017 with a joint fellowship with our satellites Churches at wiamoase. Our attendance was 257 and giving was Ghc 540.99p.
After the church service, we had our get together meals, which was very interested. The leaders at Wiamoase church agreed to distribute the giving to the satellites church to purchase some hymn books and communion materials.
We will continue to strive for Lord. “Let Christ Be Known Among You”
PEACE AND LOVE,
Daniel.
