BIBLE WORKER SUPPORT PROGRAM
In 2006 Temple Restored Ministry made a commitment to begin to support some of the dedicated men who work 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 three 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 4 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. Our ultimate goal is a local educational facility where the skills of these workers can be developed and refined. 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 --most of whom are married with children-- are currently being paid $200 per month; which is $100.00- $150.00 below what they need to feed, house, clothe, and pay for school fees. We are currently attempting to raise more funds for these faithful workers. One worker is in need of speakers for his public evangelism, another needs a lap-top computer, another is need of a LCD Projector, and another is in need of a motor bike. 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 but often fall short. If you would like to partner with us to help with additional needs it would warm our hearts and theirs and will be very welcomed.
