In 2020, ORH was hindered from conducting major clinics. We were able to conduct one clinic in Liberia in January 2020. However, in September 2020, we began to plan a clinic for January of 2021 to Ghana, West Africa.
God blessed and the country’s international airport opened for international passengers with a negative Covid 19 report. The team was able to fly into Kotoka International Airport with a 72 hour negative Covid 19 report and a negative Covid 19 report from a test taken immediately upon arrival.
Just before the team left the United States, President Biden ordered that a 72 hour negative Covid 19 report be provided to reenter the United States. This was difficult to obtain, but God was good, and we were able to accomplish this.
ORH’s partner in Ghana was national pastor, Emmanuel Ameyaw and missionary Seth Acree. Emmanuel and his people provided themselves as translators, preachers, and workers for the clinic. Brother Seth provided himself and a lady to provide food for the team.
Pastor Emmanuel chose two villages among a tribal group in the Wenchi area. The first village, Asuofiri, was 1.5 hours from Wenchi in the bush. The second village, Nkyeraa, was 1 hour from Wenchi. The villages allowed us to use school buildings and clinic buildings for the actual clinic sites.
In four days of clinic, ORH was able to provide health care for almost 1000 patients. During the preaching times, approximately 85 people received Christ. The days were very full of work, and the weather was hot. Our team did a great job and persevered through all the hardships of this unusual trip during the Covid 19 time.
Some have already asked about when we can return. There was a great victory in the hearts of the people of Asuofiri. They are very enthusiastic about another clinic in their village.
Pray for the young national preacher in our group that he will be able to hold preaching services in the two villages over the coming months.
