Ghana is on the south-western coast of the Gulf of Guinea in Africa. 79% of the population earns less than $2 per day. Yet, Ghana enjoys a rich Christian tradition. With over 100 ethnic groups, there were only 5 Bible translations available in 1965. Since then, the majority of Ghanaians have at least a New Testament translation and there is work in progress on every language in Ghana! Hundreds of churches have been planted as a result of the newly translated scriptures in their languages.
May God bless the people and organizations that have faithfully worked on Bible translations over the years in Ghana. But where God’s truth is being successfully told, there is often strong opposition. Islam has set out to conquer Ghana. Almost half of the population is under the age of 15 and very impressionable. Pray for the Christian workers and churches there, that they may reach the young people for the truth and light and hope of Jesus Christ.
