This young boy was brought to me for healing a fever...
This older Sister had an Unclean disease beginning to eat away the skin of her right foot...
This young girl came on her own for healing in her stomach, and fever pains in her head. I asked her when she will be healed? She said right today. Amen!

The students in this course on the Gifts of The Spirit today spoke in tongues and interpreted the second time in the class, for most of them it was their second time.

This Sunday morning I was asked to preach in Brother Isaac Jedu's church, called Assembly of Christian's. He hosted the first Full Two Weeks Course on the Gifts of The Spirit that I presented here in Ghana in January 2002.
Below is Rev. Jedu in the White and purple robe.
The Christians who are lined up in a semi circle were at service today because a loved one is now asleep in Jesus. The funeral for our late Brother was yesterday, and I taught today from the word of God about what happens at death and when Christ returns for all His followers in the faith in the clouds in the air. I was thanked for the message by a Pastor of the Church. I then made a call for salvation.
This is Brother Blessing ministering healing with me on the same Sunday in Rev. Jedu's church. He, Brother Blessing is a graduate of our two weeks training course on the Gifts of The Spirit last year when I was here in July-August. The Sister was the last person we ministered to. She had pains in her head and then asked to and was filled with the spirit, evidence by speaking in other tongues. Praise God Forever for His loving grace and power!

Everyday on the way to class we pass by this sign. The sign is well painted and colorful. So what is it advertising? It is a place to go to the, "Ju Ju man". That is what we would call a witch or wizard. The items painted on the sign are the tools of witchcraft. I have preached Christ to several of them in this nation, and won many of their followers to Christ. Brother Mark Machado Ghana West Africa. April 14th, 2015.

The sellers here on the side of the road are selling their traditional food in the blue plastic. It is called fanti kinki. Fanti is one of the languages here in Ghana.
