Dear Friends of Come Alive & Creation Festivals,
We had an extraordinary time in Ghana, W. Africa. Thank you for all your prayers for GhanaFest 2012 and the outreaches throughout the week. We had 70 people come with us for everything from medical teams (treated 1,000 patients), school programs (BMX bikers, and Skate Boarding, women’s ministries, work projects and an evangelistic music festival called GhanaFest 2012.
Held at Independence Square in Accra, Ghanafest had great artists from Ghana (No Tribe, Soul Winners and Cecilia Marfo) and from the USA we had Dominc Balli Band and Nicole C. Mullen and her band. On top of that, we had extreme games with BMX bikers and skateboarding. Each night as I presented the gospel along with Reid Saunders we saw wonderful altar calls to the glory of God. All in all ,we saw over 3,000 people come to Christ. It was just amazing!
Reggae artist, Dominic Balli personally won 30 Ghana reggae musicians to the Lord and they were baptized in the Atlantic Ocean and a church plant took place in the market area in Accra. All kinds of miracles and a glorious move of God upon all
the ministry opportunities God presented to us. God is faithful! As director and co-founder of the Creation Festival I have seen how effective the festival format can be in translating the Gospel to young people. Since 1972, Come Alive Internatiional, Inc. has been committed to education, evangelism, and music festivals both here and globally.
We want to thank all those that have helped support Ghanafest this year. Your financial support has made this event and outreach a success. However there is still much to be done and we need continued help from you and others that see the importance and vision of taking the Gospel to the nations through Music and Education.
We currently need your help with closing the gap in funding for Ghanafest, constructing and repairing buildings at our campus in Medina, Ghana, which currently consists of 1700 students (K-12) and our recent building Boyer University. We are also praying and exploring where God would direct us for the next International festival. Hopefully in 2014!
Thank you for your prayers and support throughout the year. God Bless you!
Serving Jesus with Joy!
