Bible Worker Support Program
In 2006 Temple Restored Ministry made a commitment to begin to support some of the dedicated men who minister as Bible Workers for their Churches, if they in turn would forward to us some written and photo documentation of their work. While in Ghana we noticed how these poorly paid brethren were faithfully shouldering the heavy responsibilities that a Pastor or Evangelist would normally bear. In an average week, these brothers would often lead out in Church services, spend 15-20 hours per week visiting people in the community or conducting Bible Studies. We learned that they spent part of their busy week visiting and praying with church members, praying with the sick and conducting four prayer meetings on weeknights for their local church. Most of the Bible Workers serve multiple congregations, which requires time on public transport. All this, on a woefully inadequate wage.
So starting with two worker's and slowly expanding as we could find financial partners, Temple Restored Ministry launched the Ghana Bible Worker Program of which we are currently assisting six full-time workers there. We will continue to support workers as long as the funds are coming in for them. We not only provide financial support but study materials, training seminars, and various expenses they occur from doing the work. All of the Bible workers have received training at the school of BetheSDA. In the last several years we have seen a great improvement in the morale of the Bible Workers and as well as the quality of work where they labor.
These Bible Workers --half of whom are married with children-- are currently being paid $100.00- $150.00 below what they need to feed, house, clothe their family, and pay for their children's school fees. We are currently attempting to raise more funds for these faithful workers. To be more efficient with their outreach and evangelism they need a Public Address system (speakers) for public evangelism, a cell phone, lap-top computer, an LCD Projector, and to save time getting around a motor bike opposed to public transportation (taxi). Almost every month the Bible workers are in need of something for the ministry or their own needs that their salary does not cover. We strive to send them what we can above and beyond their wage so that they are properly equipped. If you would like to partner with us to help with additional needs it would warm our hearts and they would greatly appreciate it.
