When writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

With all the bad stuff going on in the world, I wanted to give you an update from our ministry partner in Ghana, William Agbeti. He writes, "Last year, with the help of caring hearts and helping hands, our ministry in Ghana was able to step into the lives, homes and communities of children suffering from extreme poverty. Hundreds of meals were placed in the hands of malnourished children. We clothed, supplied drinkable water, helped build a place of worship and gave them gifts that brought about unbelievable miracles in their lives and communities. Many hearts were touched and lives transformed with the little help we could give--all in the name of the Most High Father. May His Name be forever glorified.
"Significant among our various humbling experiences were the stories of a ten year old girl who attended church service every week in the same dress. We sewed a new dress for her which enabled her to join the choir, singing and praising God with a cymbal. There was this other story of a football (soccer ball) we bought for the children of a village, which became the rallying point bringing many other children from far and near, giving us opportunity to minister to them. Of course, we also had to deal with relentless Islamic extremists bent on stopping the Christian work we were doing and destroying the local church we support. In all of their machinations, the Almighty Father saw us through, as we tried to return love for hatred.
"Another year has began, and already we are set to go, with the little that comes into our hands. Ours is a ministry that believes in the miracles that little things, given in the name of Yeshua (blessed be His Holy Name), can bring about in the lives of poor children and their families. We are also guided by signs the Almighty Father gives or shows us to follow. Already, one such sign has been given. An eleven year old boy came to fetch free water from our Ministry faucet this morning. He came when time was long gone for him to be in school. We asked him why he had not gone to school. He said he had no shoes to wear to school, so the mother asked him to stay at home!
"Clearly, this was a sign as to what to do - buy the poor lad a pair of inexpensive shoes and he would be back to school. As a result, his future would look bright and he would not become a challenge to society! Of course, there may be others like him out there, so we have a new job on our hands. Lives would be saved, the nation stands to gain and families are going to rejoice. All because of very little investment with a miracle touch! Already, very early in the year, we have sewn more clothing for children. We are going to cook and serve children with meals, and those footballs-they are an extremely effective evangelical tool!

"The needs of the poor here are many, and we don't pretend to find answers to them all. God uses the little things that are available in our hands, homes, pockets and compounds. To u
s, a donated dress, a used p
air of shoes, a pack of meals, clean water, a bag o
f cement or a football, that we give
out in His Name, means much!"

gbeti summed it up well. And as Christ said
hew 25:40, "Inasmuch
as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me." The Daily Jot's humanitarian efforts in Ghana may be small, but as you can see, they achieve powerful results. Please accept this invitation to partner with us.
