Paul Nyarko contacted the Village of Hope in the West African nation of Ghana recently about a.gif?Action=thumbnail&Width=460&algorithm=proportionalt he wanted to give to his brothers and sisters still living at the home.
Nyarko, who lives in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, is one of 12 children who “graduated” from the ministry, supported by Churches of Christ, in December, said Araba M. Amuasi, chief operations officer.
“The.gif?Action=thumbnail&Width=460&algorithm=proportionalt turned out to be 150 loaves of bread — enough to give one loaf to almost every residential child of the orphanage,” Amuasi said. “Paul plans to make this a quarterly affair, and this is such a blessing to the children.
“We hope that, in the long run, all our children will learn the importance of giving back without any prompting.”

Bobby Ross and I visited the Village of Hope in 2009 as part of a reporting trip to West Africa and Europe. Here’s a feature on the ministry from our ongoing Global South series. A related story features Francis Sosu, another graduate of the orphanage who recently completed law school in Ghana.

    It was great seeing the video of the kids. I spent a couple weeks there in 2009 and I recognized some of the kids 🙂 Praise the Lord!
