Annual Ministry Report 2023

Annual Ministry Report 2023

 Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Isaiah 2:3

Astonishingly, the days have melted into weeks and the weeks almost into months, and we are in the second month of the new year. It may seem too late to reflect on 2023, but not to count God’s faithfulness through the year 2023. There is no doubt that 2023 will have its blessings and challenges as individuals, families, and ministries; nevertheless, God’s loyal love has sustained and shepherded us through all the glorious outreaches of 2023. The year 2023 was rolled out with the theme, Let the nations come to the mountain of the Lord (Isaiah 2:2-3).

At the top of the mountain, the early January missions leaders’ retreat and training significantly impacted outreaches. In the end, the FHI ministry undertook seven (7) outreaches: Go-North Missions among the Nanumbas, Kusasi Walas, Commission on Missions at two senior high schools,  Let’s Break Bread at the Orphanage Home in Dodowa, and Slums at Haasto. In all, the ministry called six thousand five hundred and fifty-five (6,555) people to the mountain of the Lord to hear the gospel. Out of the number of people who heard the gospel, eight hundred and twelve (812) gave their lives to Jesus Christ. The ministry, through the various outreach, had water baptism for forty-three (43) and Holy Spirit baptism for twenty-three (23) who had the initial evidence of speaking in tongues. In addition, fifteen (15) people received the Bible to help them grow in their walk with God. Moreover, FH had the privilege to embark on the Missions Awareness Campaign (MAC) at the University of Cape Coast and the University of Education, Winneba. All praise to God for enabling FHI to mobilise seventeen (17) new people to join the missions’ team through various means of mobilisation.

The God-glorifying moment of the year is the testimony of encounters of healing and deliverance. By God’s grace, FHI started many disciple-making groups of fifteen (15) new people among the unreached Nanumba group in northern Ghana. The in-person Praying Through Summit (PTS) yielded much participation and fervour in prayers for missions. The monthly online prayers dubbed “Let’s Pray” were an excellent wheel for our successful missions throughout the year.

Currently, we have only three (3) missionaries serving full-time under the Christian Voluntary Missions Service (CVMS) to help with the work, who are residents of Gimam, Kpayansi, and Pudua communities in the Wulensi district in the northern region of Ghana.

Bless the Lord for all the resources made available to the ministry for the year. The Ministry raised 61% of the target funds of 180,000 Ghana cedis for 2023. In the second quarter of 2024, our audited financial statement will be duly published. This annual report presents an account of our stewardship of God, our cherished partners, and the FHI family. I pray the report will enrich our relationship as a family that believes in missions. Thanks very much, and God richly bless you for your partnership and support. Remain Blessed.
