Ministry Description

With the arrival of the Asmah family in June 2003, Word of Life Ghana's ministry began. The director, John Asmah (a native of Ghana), his wife Marilyn, and their two sons Joshua and Jake are involved in public school ministry, Bible Clubs, and evangelistic outreaches. They have already seen hundreds accept Christ and have an extensive follow-up and discipleship program in place.

Country Description

Situated in Western Africa, Ghana borders the Gulf of Guinea, between Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) and Togo, and is home to the world's largest artificial lake, Lake Volta. Slightly smaller than the state of Oregon, the Republic of Ghana was formed from the merger of the British colony of the Gold Coast and the Togoland trust territory. In 1957 Ghana became the first sub-Saharan country in colonial Africa to gain its independence. A long series of coups resulted in the suspension of the constitution in 1981 and the banning of political parties. A new constitution, restoring multiparty politics, was approved in 1992. Well endowed with natural resources, Ghana has roughly twice the per capita output of the poorer countries in West Africa. Even so, Ghana remains heavily dependent on international financial and technical assistance. Gold, timber, and cocoa production are major sources of foreign exchange. Of Ghana?s 20,757,032 population 63% claim to be Christian, 16% Muslim, and 21% indigenous beliefs. Population estimates for this country explicitly take into account the effects of excess mortality due to AIDS. It continues to be a growing problem.
