AE Ghana is about to commence a mission to Accra South. In anticipation, we share a story about the ongoing impacts of the mission to Kumasi in 2016.
As one of 11 children, Precious’ family of 13 was constantly fighting to stay out of poverty. She couldn’t go to school, and was instead sent away to a faraway city to earn money for the family. Any money she made was sent back to her family in the village. It was hard to be just the house-help, and so lonely.
She fell prey to a man who made her pregnant, but refused to have anything to do with the baby. Back in the village, her family didn’t know what to do.
A young woman, with a tiny baby to care for, alone.
Precious became increasingly desperate, especially after her father had a stroke. She returned to the village and left her baby with her mother in the village. She travelled to Kumasi where she’d heard she could make money as a prostitute.
She hated the work and felt trapped.
But God had a plan for Precious.
African Enterprise conducted a mission to Kumasi, Ghana in October 2016. Precious stumbled on one of the rallies and heard the Gospel being preached! She gave her life to Jesus and since then has been growing in her faith, through AE’s Vocational Training Programme in Accra, Ghana.
Precious has learnt how to run a small business and is now making and selling soap. She also sends some soap to her village for her siblings to sell and is training up two assistants.
“AE helped me to become a Christian and through Bible studies my life has been impacted positively. I have understood God’s love and His forgiveness.
Today, I am able to pray with my family before I start work every day. Thank you African Enterprise for making this possible. I pray for God’s blessings on all the donors.”
