Rev. Mark Machado's Missionary Trip 


This is Pastor Richard again who interpreted for me when I led the three young girls to Christ about two weeks Prior. We were scheduled to preach and minister at another church this morning but the Pastor bailed out at the last minute and called to cancel. 
To bad God had a message for them... So we called Pastor Richard who welcomes us. I taught on a message titled, "Part Alike:. In 1st Samuel 30:24. Many came for healing and some to be filled with the spirit....
Praise the Lord for the revival in Pastor Richard's Church! Brother Mark Machado, Mankessim Ghana West Africa  April 19th, 2015.


This is a Brother who needed help overcoming his obstacles in life. Sister Freda has been ministering with me for the past couple days and has grown greatly in the faith. Our Brother also received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and the gift of tongues to the glory of God. Brother Mark Machado, Mankessim Ghana West Africa  April 19th, 2015.


This is Pastor Richard's daughter. Many evil spirits were coming against her, we cast them all to hell. Then healed her of some physical problems. "...And gloried God which had given such power unto men!" Matt 9:8. Brother Mark Machado, Mankessim Ghana West Africa  April 19th, 2015.


We, my interpreter, Pastor Peter, and three new students are on our way on about a two hours drive, to a new city to start another two-week Gifts of The Spirit Course. The ocean looked inviting as it is very hot and humid here. Brother Mark Machado, Western Region Ghana West Africa  April 19th, 2015.


Today was day one of the two-week training in this area called Agona Ahanta West. It is near a larger city called Takoradi. I had been to Takoradi many times in the past preaching the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We now have about ten new students. Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West in the Western Region of Ghana West Africa. Monday April 20th, 2015



Today is day two of the teaching and training. We concluded today with the teaching on the gift of the interpretation of tongues. Two new students joined today and will need to listen to all of Monday's teaching to get caught up. Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West Ghana West Africa. Monday April 21st, 2015.


This is Sister Janet. She asked to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost and then healing for her body. Praise God Forever she spoke in another tongue and easily and took her healing by faith.  Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West Ghana West Africa. Monday April 21st, 2015.





This is a well (Pastor Ramsyer allows the village to use the well also ) where we get our water for bathing. Because of the extreme heat I need to bathe two to three times per day. Below is my bucket of water in the shower room. 


Thank God for cool water! "OH...WELL"  Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West Ghana West Africa. Monday April 23rd, 2015.

Bread anyone? This is how almost all items are carried here. "Now that's using your head?" 


After teaching class today I was given a fresh coconut. The liquid in the glass is from the coconut. Good stuff, mmmmm.


This was my dinner for the evening. It is called "Red Red". Black Eyed bean sauce over fried sweet bananas, one of my favorite Ghanaian dishes! 


Here in the roof of the church is a resident...a dove near her nest. We can hear her cooing daily as I am teaching class. Brother Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West, Ghana West Africa. Monday April 24th, 2015.


Tonight, Friday night, we are waiting for the people to come to the house of God. As it happens, regularly the power goes off, sometimes for up to 10 hours. But we have a portable generator to power the church and the home next to the church of Pastor Ramsyer, who is a gracious host. Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West, Ghana West Africa. Monday April 24th, 2015.


The students were prophesying tonight at service one by one in obedience to God's Holy Word. I taught a message from God's word in I Samuel 30:24. I titled it, Part Alike...after the service the parents brought this young child named Betty to me for healing.
She was born two months premature. The poor one had many problems and the parents believed by the mutual faith as I ministered. Here is precious Betty below.

The message the Lord gave me to deliver to the congregation was what I titled, Lord Lord! My text is Matthew 7:21-23. The message was received with thanksgiving. Brother

These are my friends from the area that come to practice their English with me. I asked them all if they have accepted Christ as their Savior? They all said yes (the girl on the far right 8th in the the photo is my interpreter for these young ones) and told me the name of the place where they attend church.

One of the boys said he goes to the Mosque, but has accepted Christ as his personal Savior. I told them to come back tomorrow evening and we will have bible school. They were all excited with great anticipation! Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West, Ghana West Africa. Monday April 28th, 2015.

Tonight I was asked for the next three evenings to do a campaign in an area where, as I was told after the service, it is hard to lead souls to Christ. It was my kind of place preaching on the streets! After teaching out of Mark chapter nine, I made a call for salvation...


Mostly children and the young accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour. I could not count the number who came to Christ as I looked around at the crowd. Praise God as Pastor Matthew had recently came to this particular part of the area to reach others with The Gospel of Jesus Christ. Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West, Ghana West Africa. Monday April 28th, 2015.


After leading so many to Christ I gave them the oppotunity to be filled with the spirit, baptized with the Holy Ghost...here I am helping them to receive!

This Brother, after service, was brought to me as it was revealed that death was not far away.

Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West, Ghana West Africa. Monday April 28th, 2015.



Tonight I taught the children about how Adam sinned in the garden and that we are all born with sin the nature. After showing them their need for Jesus Christ. I Showed them that Jesus shed his blood and died to pay the price for our sins and for everyone's sins. Then how God raised Jesus Christ from the dead the third day. They all raised their hand and accepted Christ as their Saviour! Amen! Luke 15:7. Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West, Ghana West Africa. Monday April 29th, 2015.


After delivering the Holy Word of God, a message I tittled, "The Blood of Jesus Christ", this Sister came forward for healing. I had led some of the students into ministering today.

Tonight during  open service I delivered a message of faith, then made a call to salvation and healing. It was a tough battle as the powers of hell fought us and lost. I was led to bring a young girl out of the crowd for healing and deliverance. I declared a revelation about her not sleeping at night because devil's were tormenting her. Then I gave her to two of my students and they set her free from many devils as tears of thankfulness came down her eyes...see below.



This is Pastor Matthew to the left and Brother Clements on the right as our precious Sister in the center is being delivered. (She has powder on her face to keep her face dry). Two other students are also ministering on the right side of the photo. Then a man is being set free from alcohol addiction. Thank the Lord God in the name of Jesus Christ!

I warned the students a couple days ago, as I began to teach them on the gift of the discerning of spirits, that satan will try some tricks on us. Well, this chair broke under me as I was waiting for some of the students to go to the evening service. Praise God we have the victory in Christ, not a scratch or pain on me! Thank you Lord! Brother Mark Machado, Agona Ahanta West, Ghana West Africa. Monday April 30th, 2015


Graduation day! I prophesied over each student one by one... This is Pastor Matthew who was very instrumental in arranging this particular course on The Gifts of The Spirit.

Praise God the powers of hell were sent back to hell in the name of Jesus Christ. Brother Mark Machado, Mepe Volta Region, Ghana West Africa. Monday May 2nd, 2015.


This is my interpreter for the service, Brother Ernest. In this part of Ghana they speak a different dialect, the name of the language sounds like the word, "Airway". I delivered a message I call, "Can two walk together except they agree!" Amos 3:3 is the verse I use as the basis for the sermon. The church was full. Brother Mark Machado, Mepe Volta Region, Ghana West Africa. Monday May 3rd, 2015.


This is Pastor Huddy, he invited me the night before to preach and minister healing at his church. It is in a tough area I call, "Mars hill". He also was ministered to. Praise God!

Monday May 3rd, 2015.


This Sister came forward for healing, and also had some family problems. She had visited an occult wizard many years prior. I declared the revelation about that fact and she confirmed it. I told her the family problems were because of the visit to the occult wizard. Then, by the power of God we broke the curse and sent the devils to hell. Amen! Brother Mark Machado, Mepe Volta Region, Ghana West Africa. Monday May 3rd, 2015.


These all came forward to receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. Brother Mark Machado, Mepe Volta Region, Ghana West Africa. Monday May 3rd, 2015.



This man came for healing. I led him to Christ then he received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and the gify of tongues. Then he was ministered to because of a stroke caused by an evil doer.
