The villagers were encouraged to give their lives to Jesus Christ, who died for us all. 15 people made decisions for the Lord. They were prayed for and also advised to attend a Bible believing church.|
Expressions of appreciation:
Hon. Stephen Baokyeyiadom: Assemblyman : "I would like to say Thank You to the donors for helping us in our time of need. On behalf of my community, I say a very big thanks to CBN for this relief. We have suffered, in need of clean drinking water. I wrote to the assembly requesting that they intervene in our situation, but to no avail. I heard of CBN and wrote to them. They followed up with another letter, and by the grace of God this is the end result. My appreciation to CBN. May God richly bless you."
Mavis Amanor, Student, Age 8: "I thank you very much for giving us this well. Now, I do not have to walk far to fetch water for my mother. I will have more time to rest and do my studies."
Nana Brewaa, Villager: "All I can say is you have brought hope to our community. We thank you very much."
