Ministry in Ghana
Ministry in Ghana – I am Leslie Armah a Ghanaian, and I do ministry in Ghana, West Africa and a holder of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
I always have the desire to worship and most of all work for our Lord and Master Jesus Christ, but yet I always desired the flesh (i.e. the sinful nature). As a matter of fact in those days before I go to sleep I always pray to Jesus Christ to have mercy on me and change me before I die, and should not be when I am aged as my father but rather in my youthful age as I am.
On the 6th June, 2010, I went for a youth program in my local church at about 7pm and on that day we listen to a revelation about Heaven and Hell by an Ecuadorian girl named Angelica Zambrano.
At dawn on the 7th June, 2010 at about 2am the Holy Spirit woke me up and He was reminding me of all that I heard from the lady’s revelation and I was asked do I know that if I should have died my place would have been in hell.
I cried all dawn to 5am asking for forgiveness of my sins and disobedience. On the following Sunday, I confessed Jesus Christ before the church, and I was prayed for. Since then I have been working for the Lord.
Since I was not working for Jesus Christ, I was working for Satan, so till the day I was visited by the Holy Spirit and was forgiven I promised Him that I would work ten times for Him.
Ministry in Ghana is difficult. People in my locality are hard ears to the truth, and Muslims and traditionalist are also invoking and deceiving others these are the challenges that I face.
I am recognized as the head of the evangelism team in my local church, and now I am known as an Evangelist and I like it because that is the work that I do most. In some few years to come, I will be made the youth pastor in my local church. I am also a Sunday school teacher for some adults and the youth in my church.
My family including my sweet wife helps me in prayers and encourages me in my calling. My dedication to Jesus Christ has empowered one out of three of my siblings to be zealous for Christ.
Since my graduation from my University in 2012, I decided not to work for any organization which will take most of my time from working for Jesus Christ but rather do my own business so I can have time for the work of Jesus Christ. As at now I am helping in a family business and I do have some time to work as will for Jesus Christ, I hope the Lord will open way for me to own my own business some few time to come.
The fact is that I do not have enough money now which I would use to pay for a Bible school in my country. CLI has helped me to receive a Christian Basic Certificate in studying the Bible free of charge that I never dreamt of. I am so excited about ministry in Ghana now. CLI has also increased my knowledge about the word of God and given me understanding of the Holy Scripture which I use for teaching in church and on the field when I go out with my team to proclaim the Gospel.
I will plead with CLI to help me by praying to God over my lost neighbors in my locality to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and inheritance in the Kingdom of God.
I am grateful for being a student in CLI. The Godhead richly bless you in all that you are doing for us all, not forgetting those who are giving donations to the Institute for such a wonderful and beneficial program to be kept running for the growth of the living church.
