           Ministries New Life Church Supports

  • John Appiah: We received the following email from our brother John today: "Calvary greetings from Ghana. This is short and quick update about the Well your church gave me some money to dig. As I have told you earlier I had a sudden sickness that caused my blood pressure to rise very high. It started when I was in  CA. I went to see a medical doctor but it looked nothing was working. By the grace of God through the prayers of the saints I am getting better now. Through Prayer the Lord used another Medical Professor to bring a change. In short I have not been able to work on the WELL issue even though I have told the elders about the support. Will let you know when I get it started. Kindly send my thanks and appreciation to New Life for standing with me in time of need. Special thanks to Pastor Chris and wife. I am grateful!
