As a pastor in Ghana, it pains me to see how few people follow or even know about Jesus. You can see it in the traffic patterns. During the weekdays, there’s a lot of traffic in town whilst on weekends, there’s very little traffic. A lot of people take their work more seriously than God. But some others just haven’t heard the good news of Jesus. It struck me that only about 50% of the population of my region go to church regularly on Sundays. So I thought, how can we reach the other 50% to let them know how much God loves them and how much He yearns to fellowship with them? On 1st July, which was a public holiday in Ghana, my congregation hit the streets of Kaosa in what we called the Street Rhema. We shared the Word with everyone we met. We started in the township of Kasoa and went out to Kokrobite Beach. We were so surprised to find that some people had never heard the name of Jesus. We wore t-shirts and held placards with messages of hope. We played music along the streets of our town to draw people’s attention to what we were doing. We had over 100 souls won to Christ that day. Most of them now go to church on a regular basis. One very important thing I learned from my father—until a soul grows to the point where he desires to bring others into the house of God, that soul has not been won completely. I believe the word of God deserves such attention. We did it again on boxing day at the mall and we intend to do it as often as the Holy Spirit leads us. Every soul won is worth the time and resources invested into the Street Rhema.
