Descripton of the village & people: Mintakrom is a village situated on the highway from Accra to Koforidua. The people are mainly food crop farmers who produce cassava, maize, and cocoa. Their houses are built of mud bricks (adobe) and roofed with zinc sheets. There is no school in the village to serve the children, who must walk to the next village to attend classes.

Description of the well dedication & Salvations: Attendees were taken through a presentation of the Gospel and reminded of the coming of the Lord Jesus. They were advised to turn away from their old ways and surrender to the Lord. Those who made decisions to live for the Lord were prayed for and advised to fellowship with any Bible believing church of their choice. Over 90 people attended the ceremony. 16 people made decisions for the Lord.

Etse Negble, Assemblyman for the area: "It has been a long time that we have been waiting to see such an opportunity come to our village. I thank God for making this provision available for us. May the Good Lord bless you!"
