What an honor to have these two amazing children’s ministers from Bogatanga, Ghana join the growing number of international SSCM graduates.
On the left is Paul Forderer, a great help and support to Pastor Francis Opoku (right) who had been up to his eyebrows ministering to the children of his nation through his own group called Action Children Mobilization. He had formed dozens of groups ministering to children called Royal Cadets, but had dreamed for a long time of joining his ministry to PowerClubs. As of 2012 there were 47 Royal Cadet PowerClubs serving 10,000 children.
This happened just a few short years ago, and his groups are now called Royal Cadets PowerClubs. Our premiere PowerClub trainer and KIMI Ambassador at Large, Pamela Ayres, went to train his existing leaders on how to bring children into the supernatural lifestyle of God. The leaders began teaching their 5,000+ children how to hear the voice of God, pray for the sick, and just take them into the deeper truths of God’s word. Some of our most intriguing testimonies come from his PowerClubs.
Francis has told us that while not all of his leaders have fully caught the vision, others are doing remarkably well. Several are teaching on Spirit Gifts and experiencing spiritual encounters. Word of wisdom and Word of Knowledge are paramount among them. Others are walking in a higher level of Discernment than myself.
“One of the leaders, Felix, operates in the deliverance ministry and especially against witchcraft spirits,” Francis continued. “He is teaching his children to exercise their power over evil spirits.
The result (and this happens in almost all our cadet Communities) is that, our children no more fear those objects their parents called gods. They now walk everywhere in the communities without fear. In the past, there were told/warned never to walk some parts of their villages. They were told they would meet gods/ghosts of their ancestors if they walked there. But our children have defied all those by Faith.”
Pastor Francis has one of the biggest heart and visions of anyone we have met in Africa that go so far beyond his work in PowerClubs alone. He is active in feeding the hungry, and obtaining Bibles and books for the children of Ghana. He is a leader in the Right to Play program in Ghana, and for years housed as many as twenty street children in his home with his own six children.
For anyone who feels led, we highly recommend supporting Francis and his huge ministry:
