Imagine yourself living in a remote area of Ghana as a part of a little, easily-overlooked people group. Only 150,000 people world-wide speak your language and understand your values and way of life.
Some new people move in to the community, but there is a giant gap between your world and theirs. Yet you experience them slowly learning your language, intentionally participating in your way of life, and building relationships. These people, now your friends, share a new way to think about life. They explain you don’t have to try to please people or spirits, rather God Himself came to earth to set you free and to trust in Him. Along with a few members of your community, you decide to follow this God and put your faith in Jesus!
Now, where do you go from there?
There are no leaders in the tiny churches to disciple and teach you, no online resources in your language, and no Bible Colleges to enrol in.
This is the point in the story where Robbie & Heather get to join in!
What does this new-found faith look like within your own culture?
How can you share your faith with your family and community?
What does Christ teach about the issues you face daily, but have never been considered by those from other cultures?
These and other questions are why we are leaving our life here to live in Northern Ghana. Until recently the Sissala people were completely unreached for Christ, but now that there are believers, they need people who understand their language and culture to walk with them in their faith journey and discover with them what it is to follow Christ in their context.
