Babile-Laura church of Christ is located in the Laura District of the Upper West Region of Ghana.
The church was established by some missionaries from the United State of America and Tema, Accra in the year 1999.
The church started with a membership of five (5) people.
Currently, the church has an average membership of around fifty (50) of which eight (8) are men, seventeen (17) are women, fifteen (15) are children.
The church does not have a permanent place of worship. We worship in the classroom.
The weekly giving of the church on Sundays is around GHC30.00
Most of the youth have left for the cities to seek green pastures. This phenomenon of continuous migration of the youth to the cities is affecting the growth of the church.
My name is Zivan Anthony, aged forty-two (42), and married with two (2) children. I am the preacher for Babile-Laura church of Christ since 1999.
The financial position of the church is very weak and therefore they are unable to support the preacher financially. This is why I applied for support from RGM.
I have been on Rescue Ghana Mission (RGM) support for about four (4) years and I have been receiving monthly top-up allowance which supports me as I lead the church in such a poor and deprived community.
I appreciate the support I receive from the RGM monthly, without it things would have been very difficult for me and my family.
I will like to thank the managers of Rescue Ghana Mission for such this initiative and more especially to those who donate in cash and kind to support rural preachers like me.
God bless you.
