Mama Dorcas & Papa John Abedu-Kennedy
We praise God for making us part of the Mount Abarim Missions family. We thank God for wisdom and a mission-minded vision given to Dr. Mike Patterson and others to start such a unique ministry which is open to assist called men of all races in reaching souls around the globe with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I was approved as an affiliate missionary in 2001, having served for seventeen years in Liberia from 1975-1989 and from 1990-2000 as pastor of Christianborg Baptist Church in Osu, Accra.
Along with my mission responsibilities as business coordinator, liaising between missionaries of our mission and the government, we have been laboring in church planting with four church plants besides another three we planted when I was pastor at Chnstianborg Baptist Church. We started a Bible School to train men for our church plants in 2009. By July of 2013, we are expecting to see four men graduate with a Diploma in Pastoral studies and two ladies with Certificates in Teaching and Vocational skills.

|We are also doing Free Bible Correspondence Courses with ROGMA int. reaching several thousand people across Ghana and beyond. PRAYER REQUEST: I believe, one of our greatest challenges in the ministry here in Ghana has been a lack of MINISTRY FUNDS to assist us in putting up church buildings.We do however truly praise God for our personal support from faithful friends and churches. As long as God continues to bless us personally, we plan to use a greater part of it to teach our people through our own tithes, love offerings, and Faith Promise giving for missions to live for His kingdom. We pray that as we preach and teach our churches they will also learn to give God’s way and equally enjoy God’s blessings.
Meeting on the building lot of the Mumford church Please pray with us for funds to start building soon

Looking back over 2012, we can see God’s faithfulness and the blessings He has given us for remaining faithful to our calling. We also stand and look ahead at 2013 with a precious hope of our Lord’s soon return with a sure determination that we will stay the course, preaching Christ until He comes again. Thank you for allowing us to represent you here in Africa as your missionaries.
