Church Plant in Tamale, Ghana
After graduation from the Bible School in Accra, one of our students asked to plant a church in the town of Tamale. This is a strategic town in the Muslim North of Ghana from which to reach out to the unreached villages. Aldous has been a junior pastor in the church in Accra and is a translator that we have used many times. Two graduates that are brothers, are going with him, Francis and David.
