About Ghana

Ghana is located on the west coast of Africa. In the north, the terrain is grassland and in the south the terrain is forest and farmland. In the Sahara region, the climate is hot and dry and warm and humid in the South Atlantic region. Although relatively small in area and population, Ghana is one of the leading countries of Africa, partly because of its natural wealth and partly because it was the first black African country south of the Sahara to achieve independence from... colonial rule. Ghana is known for its lush forests, diverse animal life, and miles of sandy beaches along the coast. Lake Volta is in Ghana and is the largest reservoir in the world, with a surface area of 3,282 square miles. The main occupation within Ghana agriculture and fishing. About two-thirds of Ghanaians are under age 30, which ensures that the country’s high growth rate will continue for some time. Major health problems in Ghana include communicable diseases, poor sanitation, and poor nutrition. There are many of the epidemic diseases in Ghana including malaria, pneumonia, and gastric diseases. Most villages and communities still have inadequate sanitation and water-supply facilities, which hinders efforts to improve public health. Out of 111 people groups in Ghana, there are 17 unreached people groups.

What's Happening in Ghana

One would think that Ghana is a largely Christian nation. However, when you get out of the big cities, you find much fewer churches, and many of the people are steeped in animism. Islam is also taking steps to infiltrate Ghana. Aside from finishing the job to reach the remaining least reached from border to border in Ghana, we desire to see each high school in Ghana have a Christian club with Live School in it. We believe it is time to pass the baton to the next generation.  Although Ghana is "evangelized" in the major cities, we have found that there are... areas within Ghana that are closed to the Gospel due to Islamism.  We have focused our attention to these areas and are seeing great results.  God is connecting us with the major denominations and we are finding great favor in Ghana, which is bringing growth!  We are excited to see the passion that these leaders have for their nation.  They are desiring to use Live School as a tool to train their people.  We are believing for mighty things to take place in HIS NAME throughout Ghana!
