In the most recent Ministerial eNews was this report about a newly initiated radio broadcasting effort by Stephen Kusi and a local deacon in Ghana. As most Atlanta and Buford brethren are aware, Stephen was a member of the Atlanta congregation until he was unfortunately sent back to his native Ghana in 2019 by the U.S. Immigration Service. He's also the husband of our very own Atlanta member TeShawna Derrico-Kusi.
Here's the report: (Note - a photo of their effort can be seen in the Download section to the right)
Paul Moody writes about Ghana:
“I have shared a video on my Facebook page of Stephen Kusi (former ABC student) and Peter Bondzie (deacon) preaching the Gospel in Winneba, Ghana, on the local radio station, ‘Radio Peace.’ It is presented in the Akan language, mixed with the English language. Stephen Kusi and Peter Bondzie broadcasting on Radio Peace in Winneba, Ghana. “Although it is not a high-powered station, this opportunity allows them to share the fundamental doctrines of the United Church of God with the public, and in a local tongue. “This particular program is titled, ‘The Facts About Easter Festivity.’ They formed the script from published material on the United Church of God website. “The program airs every Friday night from 8-9 p.m. in Winneba, Ghana. It began on April 1, 2022, with a three-month purchase of airtime by a UCG member there. It is gradually picking up momentum based on listener response. “I look forward to seeing what kind of response or feedback they receive over three months. The fact that we have a local congregation of 40 attendees in Winneba for interested individuals to follow up with is encouraging. “The first program was titled, ‘What is the Truth?’ based on Christ's words, ‘You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free’ (John 8:32). The second program was, ‘The Will of God’ based on Matthew 7:21-23. The Easter topic was their third program.”
