Our Sixth Fruitful Trip to South Africa!
by Aaron Anthony 

The annual foreign missions trip with selected students and faculty is one of my greatest personal blessings.  To be able to take people from one third-world nation to another to tell them about the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is an amazing thing to consider.  It is amazing not only because they are from a third-world nation, but because we have them raise money for their own transportation—and God always finds the way for them!  With such blessing from God, we always anticipate much fruit, and we are never disappointed.

While we saw hundreds of salvations, healing miracles, and deliverances from addictions as in past years, the Lord was doing a “new thing” this year.  No matter where we ministered, a spirit of revival came in and remained.  Hours were spent following each service with the local residents praying for their church and their districts.  Even after we left a particular district or church, reports continued to come to us of the ways the people were touched, and how they were following through with renewed vigor evangelizing their own area.

Highlights

On a Personal Note:

SA Lisa singing with P&W Our daughter Lisa so enjoyed the missions trip last year to South Africa that she spent this past year raising money in Ghana to come again this year! Here she is joining the praise team.

Our son, Jeffrey also came. He became our camera man this year.  He and Lisa both had birthdays while in South Africa—Jeffrey turned 9 and Lisa 11.  These are birthdays they will never forget!

Salvations
This photSA DSC_0836o is from the district of Bottlebrush, where we have ministered for the past six years.  Bottlebrush is a notorious settlement which is ravaged by deep poverty, drug and alcohol addiction, sexual immorality, rape, and other sin-infested activities

  Homes are made out of anything, raw sewage runs down the roads, and there is only one standpipe for water out by the road. Crime and drugs are high…but… it’s changing!  Praise the Lord!

Revival! 

Here we prayed together for their community.  Such a spirit of revival broke out each night.  We still are hearing accounts of the people being touched by the Lord and going out and testifying to their neighbors

girl with lump

 

  Healings! 

The first night of our ministry in South Africa,  at Impact Global Ministries, a pretty little girl around 7 years old came up for prayer.  She was crying as she told me that she has a lump in her chest near her breast area.  I could hardly believe it, being she was so young.  I prayed for her, commanding the lump to dissolve and to be gone!  Jesus is the same, yesterday, today, and forever!  On the last night of the revival service, she and her mother came after the service had ended and testified that the lump has completely disappeared!  Hallelujah!

Prodigal Son Returns Home!  
Young man left home, handkerchiefs, came home, to church saved deliveredA mother from Global Impact Church came forward for prayer for her son who had left the house on drugs. Handkerchiefs were brought by the mother to be prayed over for the son to come back. On Sunday morning, the young man who came to church and received Christ as his Savior! Not only that… he received prayer for deliverance from the drugs! I have spoken by phone with the elated mother…he’s free indeed!  God continues to do mighty exploits!

Holy Spirit Changes a man’s “spirit”
One of our students remained outside the tent encouraging others to join us. One of the men spoken to was an Indian man who was actually in the street on his way to buy a bottle of alcohol.  After hearing a story about what happened 2 years ago, on this very spot, the man came into the tent and came forward to receive Christ as his Savior!

Children are not Left Out!

Look at these precious little hearts receiving Jesus!

Here’s What Some Students Are Saying

Here are two responses from new first-year students when asked, “What are their expectations here at ETHBC?”

Testimony Bright Whajah - 1st Yewar Testimony cropBright Whajah:  I expect to be equipped and ready for ministry by the time I complete the course of study.  I hope to gain a better understanding on how to do God’s work.  I know I’m shallow in the things of God, and I desire to gain more depth while studying at ETHBC.

 

Testimony Ebenezer Koranteng - 1st Year Testimony cropEbenezer Koranteng:  I am trusting the Lord that I will be transformed by what I will be taught.  I not only expect to be taught in the Bible, but I want to be transformed in my character, attitude, and behavior.  I want to practice the Bible in all areas of my life.

2nd Year Diploma students were asked:  “How is God’s Word changing them?”

Emmanuel Mensah:  My life has been transformed!  I know the Word so much better and have learned to stand on the Word of God  as I pray.  Also, I have learned how to be a better leader, and from my perspective, I have moved from being a zero to the top!

Testimony Isaac Anane - 2nd Year Testimony crop Isaac Anane:  First, I have seen a total change in my life.  Second, when I teach at my church, there is so much more improvement in both my study and delivery.  The practical outreaches have helped to develop my gifts and calling to do what God has called me to do.

 Bachelor Degree students were asked:  “How has attending the college encouraged and transformed them?”

 Testimony Emmanuel Worlanyo - Degree Testimony cropEmmanuel Worlanyo:  The courses at the college are so thorough and intense,  they have helped me to know the Bible well.  The focus on holiness has transformed my life to developed a godly character.  I have a love for the ministry and for the work of God, and the leadership courses  have helped me in the area of leadership and training of people.

Testimony Comfort Dugan - Degree Testimony cropComfort Dougan:  Attending the school has stirred up the gifts in my life and encouraged me to know the place where God would have me to be in His kingdom.  It has made my focus to be  completely on God.

More Signs of Growth—Include Completing the Fourth Building of God’s Vision
of Five Buildings in the Shape of a Cross

You have all been following the construction of this fourth building.  We have completed all the lintels of the first floor.  We are ready to continue onward and upward.  We really need a concerted effort to complete this building, as we are holding classes in dormitory space, limiting our dormitory offering.  We have had to place offices for our outreach staff in part of our prayer towers, which we had to partition off.   Our student body is increasing, our staff never has had office space, our library is suffering, as we had to partition off part of it for our new Chief Administrative Officer to have a private office, and our praise and worship curriculum is confined to the one large room of the round building, which doesn’t allow practice rooms or multiple course offerings.

Signs of Growth–A New Satellite School
by the End of 2014

By Pastor Aaron Anthony

By the next academic year, End Time Harvest Bible College will experience EXPANSION as we open an extension campus in the township of Tarkwa.  Tarkwa is nearly 2 1/2 hours northwest of Takoradi.  The people of Tarkwa know us through our crusades and street ministry there over the past few years, and they have always received us and the ministry well.  For years, we have made several attempts through advertisements for men and women there to attend ETHBC. However, despite offering dormitory facilities, we have had only three students from Tarkwa attend and graduate from ETHBC.

This past October, we held one of our Storming the Gates Crusades in this township, and great things took place during that week.  During that week, I was impressed that God wants us to open our first extension campus in this township, to raise up more flaming arrows that will be trained and equipped in the Word of God, sent out into this dry world to cause revival fire to burn ablaze wherever they would minister!

There is only one Bible school in Tarkwa, and it is only part-time.  That school also has a branch in Takoradi, but all recognize that our curriculum is far superior to theirs.  Once we get a few students enrolled in Tarkwa, and people start seeing the resulting fruit, we will have a thriving school and greater outreach, which will extend to the northern and western borders of Ghana, and undoubtedly spill over into the nations of Burkina Faso and the Ivory Coast.

Partners, I believe a great door of expansion lays in front of us.  I do not see the Tarkwa school costing as much as our current campus site, as it is not our intention to build, but rather. rent adequate space.  I also believe the school fees will pay most of the bills and salaries there.

It is imperative that from January to the month of September, we must raise the following items to launch this new school.

·    Most importantly: The funds to rent a building large enough to house an office, three classrooms, and include a place of housing for the new Principal of this extension campus.

·    The donation of a 4×4 truck for the new Principal to assist him with all the outreaches he will be expected to oversee, which will extend to both the northern and western borders of Ghana!

·    The donation of books, Bibles, and resource materials to install in the new library.

·    Finances to purchase tables and chairs for the classrooms.  Finances to furnish the apartment

Secondly, because it is a new work in a new area, we need to be able to share the vision with the pastors in the area, like I did a long time ago in Takoradi.  Peter Quayson, the valedictorian of the 2013 Bachelor’s Degree Program is now on our staff.  He will be sent soon to Tarkwa to start all the advance work of sharing the vision with the local pastors, as I did so many years ago in Takoradi

I am really excited to see what God is about to do with this new extension campus.  Please prayerfully consider how you can partner with us to launch this new campus.

Signs of Growth
by Aaron Anthony

WE are bursting with excitement!  We have so much to share with you as we begin the year 2014.  It’s all about God’s faithfulness to the vision he gave me 21 years ago.  The Bible College is growing and growing.  The number of people we reach in a year is growing and growing!  The geographic territory we minister in is  growing and growing!   This article will tell you all about the signs of growth!  As you read, join us in giving praise and thanks to our God, who is bringing it to pass.

Growth—the Addition of New Staff Positions

We have grown so much as a ministry that, at the beginning the fall semester in October, I stepped into the new role of Chancellor of End Time Harvest Bible College.  I will now transition myself from the office of President and doing the majority of the administration, to that of being a mentor and overseer of the work.

Long-time teacher at the College, Rev. Ben Agbakli, has been appointed to the position of President.  For the past year and a half, he has added to his teaching role that of Dean of Students in partial preparation for his appointment as President.
