Dear Praying Partners and Friends,
The book of Proverbs has this to comfort us “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” Proverbs 3:5,6. I’m reminded of the power and sovereignty of God when challenged with a seemingly unsumantable giants. Jesus’s words reminds me that if one has a little faith like that of the mustard seed, he could say to the mountain to move and it will be done. Yes, God can and helps us move mountains.
I’m requesting an urgent prayer to help raise funds to pay for a 40 foot container that has arrived in Ghana from the USA with contents meant to be distributed for humanitarian and other social services. We’re being asked to pay approximately $8,000 dollars for duty and taxes besides transportation and labor from the Port to the storage. The items include used clothes and new clothes, shoes, piano, mattresses and beds, toys, chairs, tables, Holy Bibles, detergents, medical supplies, tools, books, luggages, school supplies, miscellaneous articles. Some of the items are meant for the Orphanages, School for the Blind, Street/ Orphan Children, Blind, Physically Challenged, Severly mentally challenged, Deprived School Children, selected Prisons and others.
The good Lord has provided some help of $2,000 from Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church as of now. However, the demurrage charges goes high each day and more funds will be needed. The truck is truck to haul the container’s charge is estimated to be between $600-$700 according to those who have rented such trucks to the area. The content in the container are valuable and are really needed especially the few study bibles for the Pastors in Training and the beds for the Women Vocational Training Institute for the Orphans and Street Children.
I want to thank each of you for your sacrificial giving and constant prayers. May the good Lord continue to grant you grace and replenish all that you do for the cause of Jesus Christ whose soon coming is eminent. God bless all of you.
Still praising the Lord,
Pastor Alex B
