Vol 1 Issue 2
Mayfia has not had an easy life. Her father died when she was four
years old, and then she was passed around between multiple Aunts.
For the past two years she has been with her Mother, but not going
to school. At 10 years old, she has only completed 1st grade.
When her single, unemployed mother became pregnant she decided to
send Mafia to her father’s family in a far away village. Mafia was
so scared, she ran away. Her mother refused to look for her.
Thankfully she was returned by an Aunt (from a distant city where
the girl had fled) who talked her mother out of sending Mafia away
to the village.
Mayfia is hopeless. Unwanted by her mother, yet too afraid to leave,
she is facing a life of illiteracy, child labor, and continued
neglect and malnutrition.
We are partnering with another organization looking for a Christian
family who can love and accept Mafia as she is, who will work to
give her hope and a future. In the mean time, we are feeding and
caring for Mafia, and helping her catch up on some of her missed
schooling during the days.

our friend Pastor Andrew, was thrown in jail, while doing his job
for another organization, God showed up!
The cell was cramped, and there was no place to lie down. The
port-a-potty was overflowing with sewage. The food brought in was
not edible. Known for worshiping Jesus, wherever he goes, Pastor
Andrew began praising the Lord in the cell with the 6 other inmates.
They prayed and praised God all night long. Two of the inmates had
been held for over 3 months in the cell. The next day, one of the
men was released, and the other was given a court date where he
could post bail. Pastor Andrew was released, and charges dismissed,
after two days of serving Jesus in the jail.
Pastor Andrew is enrolled at University of Ghana continuing his
education. If you would like to help us purchase a laptop for him to
use in class, please send a special gift, with a note “For Pastor
