Isaiah 43:18-19, NIV
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Pray that you will rejoice this month as you intercede for the peoples of Ghana, and take God at His word that He will do a new thing in Africa!

Missionary biography, Adama

by Joel News

A leper first introduced Adama to Christ, and a blind man led him to salvation. “His reading braille captivated me,” says Adama. “I asked him where I will go when I die.” In response to the young man’s question, the blind man quoted from the Gospel of John. The power of God’s Word left a lasting imprint on Adama’s heart and propelled him to his future ministry. “I didn’t understand the cross or what my decision meant; but I went ahead and received Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior.”
Raised in a Muslim home and community in West Africa, Adama experienced hostility, but took it in stride. “Every true believer should experience opposition,” he maintains. “The important thing is the discovery of the life-given Spirit in Christ. I found a new life.” Two years after his life-changing conversion, he felt an overwhelming desire to share the good news. “I saw my people were living in darkness,” he says. Although he had little training, he began to travel from village to village for several weeks at a time. “Nobody told me to go. I didn’t know many of the scriptures,” he admits, “but I wanted to tell people that Jesus can give you eternal life.”

Pray for thousands of African Muslims to turn their lives to Jesus and face hostility in stride. Pray that Muslim antagonists will soon realize that they are fighting against the Lord Himself and repent.
