'Hands On' Ghana
Font Size

Five young Salvationists from the USA Eastern Territory—Andrew Garcia, Nealson Munn, Sandra Pierre, Erika Lynn Stuart, and Jana Walter—spent last summer ministering in Africa as members of the Hands On Mission Team assigned to Ghana. The team served in urban ministry at the Mamobi Urban Aid Clinic and the Anidasofie ['House of Hope'] Street Girls Training Center, and in rural areas such as Duakwa and the West Akim Division.

Munn reported that the Salvationists in Ghana were "unfailingly friendly and gracious" and "buoyed by a contagious energy. " "I hope to bring some of the joy of the Ghana Territory home with me to the USA, " said Munn, "and I hope that Ghana itself benefited from the brief ministry of the Hands On Team."

Look for more of the team's story— their moving experiences in the aid clinics, their memories of worshiping with the Ghanaian Salvationists, their battles with health issues—in the January 2006 edition of Good News! That issue will also feature stories from the 2005 Hands On Spain mission team and information about upcoming opportunities for young people to serve in Hands On ministries.
