“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”
Profile of MISSION Team members Emmanuel Klottey & Nathaniel Klottey
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.
Our current Profile of Mission Team Members highlights team members, Emmanuel (Ato) and Nathaniel Klottey. These young men have been a part of Ghana Initiative since 2014. They live in the Osu, district of Accra, Ghana. Ato and Nathaniel are the nephews of Seth Pobee, the director of Ghana Initiative MMM. These young men are full of energy and well loved by all they have served beside on Ghana Initiative MMM teams. We look forward to serving with them from one year to the next. The Ghana Initiative team wouldn't be the same without them.
Ato is the older brother. He has completed his education and civil service in Ghana and is currently looking for a meaningful job in his country. When serving with Ghana Initiative, he works most often with the children in Bible School. It isn't uncommon to see Ato walking around his classroom with a baby or young child in his arms as he works with the other students in his care. He is a fabulous teacher with a heart of gold. He is enthusiastic and has a gentleness about him. He is a great role model for those he serves in the Bible School classroom. Ato has also served as a translator, tour guide and mission team accountant in Ghana. He has made very close and lasting friendships with his US and Ghanaian missionary counterparts. It's been a joy watching relationships form between Ato and others on the team. His pleasant demeanor and positive attitude bring joy to our team!
Nathaniel, the younger brother, is still in high school. He joins us on his summer break. Nathaniel is the artist in his family. He too, serves the children in the Ghana Initiative Bible School. He always has a huge smile on his face and never shrinks from a challenge. The children love being around Nathaniel. He shows them that he cares and makes every moment count. It's impressive to see Nathaniel's joyful heart in action as he works with the children in the classroom, teaches them songs, or as he marches through the village with the children as they sing and play the instruments they made in their Bible school class. Nathaniel is a fun loving young man who makes those around him smile.
Ato and Nathaniel play a vital role on the mission soccer team. They represent us well during the annual Pokrom youth vs mission team soccer match.
We are blessed to have Ato and Nathaniel Klottey on the Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission team. We look forward to seeing the plan that God has for their lives develop as they serve with the team into the future. May their enthusiasm, courage, love for others and joy, be a blessing to others as they continue to serve. Thank you Ato and Nathaniel for being a blessing to many.

We are about building relationships as we spread the word of god!
Ghana Initiative MMM is a non-profit, Christian organization that provides 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. The 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. Our team members share the Word of God at a Bible school where children learn Bible stories and participate in 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!

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 500 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.
