DANIEL NYARKO FROM GHANA
My name is Daniel Nyarko, a 32-year-old caring Husband. I am married to Deborah Nyarko, a nurse by profession in Ghana in the Eastern region, who has been very instrumental in my ministry. I am currently the Coordinator of the English Assembly of the Christ Apostolic Church International, Akim Oda – New Town Assembly.
Doing ministry in Ghana is awesome and fulfilling despite the economic challenge one may encounter. I was born into the Church of Pentecost, dedicated and brought up in the ministry. Having duly gone through the Bible outline ascribed to the children’s ministry, I was baptized and ushered into the Adult service. I acquainted myself with the Bible and personally believed in the inspirational word, prayer, fasting and the oneness of God.
I have always desired of serving the Lord in His divine vineyard as a Pastor. I have always felt the calling of God upon my life until one faithful day; I felt sick to the point of death; I clearly heard the voice of God trumpeting into my ears that I will not die unless I have fulfilled His calling upon my life. I surrendered all and answered to the calling. God blessed me a book that I wrote, entitled: Discovering your Purpose in life. The book was launched at the Christ Apostolic Church, Akim Oda – New Town. After a while, I had a revelation that I had joined the Christ Apostolic Church. I sought the Lord in prayers, and after I had received a confirmation, I joined the church.
Because of the economic downturn in Ghana, standard of living is very high in our geographical area; rendering the local church financially unsound. Again, members attend to their work early and return late, which affect attendance at church in the evening services. Just to mention a few.
Given the challenges stated, the Christian Leaders Institute Scholarship will be of help to me to be able to fulfill my dream calling.
My church had been of tremendous assistance to me regarding advice, motivation, prayers among others when I told them of my enrollment in the Christian Leaders Institute.
Your prayers for long life, dream calling guidance, understanding the Holy Spirit more and perseverance to finish the race will be of much assistance. God bless you for this opportunity to share my story.
