Profile of a MISSION Team member Brothers Samuel & EmManuel Afful
Several times per month we will highlight a member of the 2018 Ghana Initiative mission team. We ask that you would pray for this team member and those that they serve. We are blessed with a loving, committed and skillful team, and look forward to the team God brings together for 2019.

For this Profile of a Mission Team Member, we are highlighting the service of brothers, Samuel and Emmanuel Afful. Both Samuel and Emmanuel joined the Ghana Initiative mission team in 2015. They have served in several different areas of the ministry. Samuel started serving with the team as a single young man. He worked closely with the children as a Bible school teacher. He has a strong heart for children that becomes evident when he is in front of a classroom. He's very talented at teaching, singing, praying and sharing events from the Bible. The children love him and flock to his classroom whenever he serves a Bible school teacher. Samuel also shares morning devotions with the team and yearns to lead souls to the Lord. He is a true man of God.
In 2017 the Ghana Initiative mission team had the honor of attending the wedding of Samuel and Gina Afful. It was a blessed occasion and one that none of us will ever forget. We are privileged to have Samuel on the team and look forward to the day when Samuel and his wife serve in a much broader capacity for the Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission organization.
Emmanuel Afful, Samuel's younger brother, has been serving on the mission team since he was 18 years old. He is beloved by the children and serves wherever he is needed. He is most comfortable in the Bible school classroom and on the soccer field where is a real STAR! Emmanuel started serving on the mission team with Administrative Director, Troy Pfoutz. He and Troy met through Compassion International in 2013. At that time, Emmanuel was too young to serve on the team. As soon as he turned 18, it was obvious to Troy that he would be a huge asset to the ministry.
Emmanuel enjoys teaching children aged 10-14. He serves along side a US team member. He is a gentle, caring, sensitive young man with a heart for the Lord and an understanding that his life is guided by the Holy Spirit. Emmanuel is a fabulous soccer player. He has held positions on several local and regional soccer teams in Ghana including the "Heart Babies" Team, which feeds the Ghanaian professional team called "Hearts of Oak". We look forward to what God has in store for his future. Emmanuel is certain to become a mighty man of God who will bring encouragement, love and comfort to the people of his nation. We thank Samuel and Emmanuel for serving selflessly on the Ghana Initiative team. They have brought joy into the lives of hundreds of children, been friends to their American team members and have led souls to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are about building relationships as we spread the word of god!

Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission is a non-profit organization. We provide FREE medical care to needy men, women and children in Ghana, West Africa. Ghana Initiative MMM reaches the poor and needy by way of a mobile medical clinic. This clinic is managed and operated by a team of qualified doctors and nurses from the USA and Ghana. Ghana Initiative MMM also works with children. We teach them about Jesus through Bible stories and exciting arts and crafts projects. The goal of our mission work is to reach tens of thousands of people in need of physical healing and spiritual salvation. The ministry of Ghana Initiative MMM is supported by donations and prayers from people just like you!
Missionary Training Center Building Project Update
Recently, Ghana Initiative Director, Seth Pobee and mission team member Harold Zeiset traveled to Ghana for 10 days to oversee a portion of the missionary training center construction project. While in Pokrom Nsabaa they joined the construction crew on site. They and the builders dug out and prepared to lay the final footers for the buildings. They planned, dug out and laid the pipes in preparation for the compound plumbing and poured concrete floors over more than one third of the building site. The next step is to construct walls and attach roofs to the areas that will become the Warehouse, Ghana Initiative Office and Dormitory Block #1. In order to move this project forward and see the ministry of Ghana Initiative open its Missionary Training Center, we are in great need of financial support. We ask that you would pray and ask the Lord if He would have you sew into the ministry of Ghana Initiative financially. Please contact Troy Pfoutz at email@example.com if you have any questions about investing in this ministry. The photos below show some of the work that was completed at the site. They also depict the completed well that was drilled and made ready for the community to have fresh clean water. Several other photos show Harold repairing the roof of the Ghana Initiative Mobile Clinic. We thank God for His faithfulness, our supporters for their prayers and financial support and everyone involved in the missionary training center project in Ghana and in the USA.

To god be the glory!
Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission is joyful, following another exciting, successful and miraculous mission experience in Ghana, from August 1-12, 2018. We thank God for guiding, protecting, healing and saving. Each member of our team is blessed with testimonials of how the Lord was working in them and through them. We saw souls saved, hearts changed, bodies healed and joy unspeakable as we were obedient to the Holy Spirit working through us.
The photos below, show the faces of just a few of the many individuals who experienced the awesome power of God's love shining into or through their hearts and lives. We are truly blessed to have served the beautiful and welcoming people of Ghana, West Africa. Most of our time was spent in the Eastern Region towns of Adamorobe, Adjena and Pokrom Nsabaa. Thanks go out to all who support the ministry of Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission through prayer, financial donations and material contributions. Your support makes it possible for Ghana Initiative MMM to touch the lives of thousands. Most importantly, we thank God and remember to say: "TO GOD BE THE GLORY!"
Each day God opens doors in our lives. He gives us chances to share His love with those around us. Too often however, we miss out on the blessings that go along with walking through these open doors. Are you aware of the doors that God is opening in your life? Are you missing out on the blessings? Ghana Initiative teams encounter open doors every day of a mission experience. Wouldn't you like to be a part of our next mission team? Check out the NEW 2019 mission team application at the bottom of this page.
May the Holy Spirit serve as your bridge today! If you count on the Holy Spirit to guide you and walk with you each day, you should never find it necessary to stand at one end of a bridge in your life and ask, Is it safe; Is it Strong; or Will it hold me? The Holy Spirit has designed a path for your life that is PERFECT and STRONG! Follow your path and cross every Bridge with confidence!
Cross with confidence
Look at what god is doing!
God is doing beautiful things in Ghana. He is working in and through our missionaries to change lives and hearts! May God receive all of the Glory for what He is doing in Ghana, West Africa through Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission!
Salvation belongs to a young man following his interaction with Bible School teacher Wendy Shonk. "Prince" accepts Jesus as his savior, and becomes the first of 38 salvations identified during the Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission experience. Imagine the celebration in heaven as hearts were changed an souls were saved!
Miracles do happen!! Young "Ama Dzigbor" came to the medical clinic in Pokrom in a state of unresponsiveness. She was very ill. Several team members laid hands on her and began to pray for God to heal her. Within minutes she opened her eyes, cried to be nursed by her mother and interacted with her parents and team members. A CAT scan and check up at the hospital, confirmed that she had been healed! Our God is a MIRACLE WORKING GOD!!
A mustard seed of Faith and a moment of Prayer can move a mountain. (Matthew 17:20) Faith and Prayer brought healing to Ghana Initiative team members, volunteers and patients alike. Our missionary team members put Faith into action by praying for those in need, as they served the lovely people of Ghana. For each life that was touched, God received the Glory!!
Children met their sponsors. Ghana Initiative team members allow the love of Christ to shine through them by sponsoring children in need in the towns where Ghana Initiative serves. On this mission experience Jerry Emmanuel of Pokrom Nsaaba met his sponsor, Judy Poglitsch and David, of Accra found a new sponsor in Ghana Initiative team member Val Weaver. Sponsorship opens the door for children to go to school, expand their knowledge and skills and develop into productive citizens of Ghana.
Generous donations from supporters of the Ghana Initiative ministry enabled us to distribute more than 800 mosquito bed nets in three communities. The nets were given free of charge to those who demonstrated the need for the bed nets and to those who came to our clinic having already contracted malaria. We have already seen a reduction in the number of cases of malaria in the community where we gave out bed nets last year. Praise God for making this work possible.
PRAISE THE LORD!! On Sunday, the team attended church at Jesus Camp located in Dansoman, Accra. The service was lead by Pastor Charles Otchere-Baffour and his wife Lawrencia. This was a Holy Spirit lead experience filled with Joy and Bible based teaching. We were with our spiritual family and enjoyed every moment of it! We thank God for giving us the freedom to praise and worship Him with all that was within us!
"BOOTS, BOOTS & more BOOTS" This summer, we gave away more than 400 pair of new and gently used soccer cleats, or Football Boots as they are called in Ghana. Ghana Initiative team members and many generous sponsors donated hundreds of pairs of Boots for the children and youth in rural communities in Ghana. The Boots were a blessing to so many. They are sure to be put to good use by the boys and girls who received them. We thank everyone who donated Boots!
Joy was spread through bountiful hugs! Team members were challenged to spread the love of Christ through a hug and a smile. Both the hug giver and hug receiver were blessed by the joy that welled up inside. The children yearned for hugs and often didn't want to let go as they were hugged by Ghana Initiative team members.
God made it possible for Ghanaian professionals to join the Ghana Initiative team in greater numbers than ever before. This year we welcomed Dr. Richard, Pharmacist Diamond, Nurse Sandra, Nurse Mavis, Biological Scientist Daniel, and a number of selfless volunteers. We look forward to what God has in store for 2019.
