Due to time factors the missionary was only able to meet with Pastor Gideon one day at Accra as well as with some other interested parties. It appears that the congregation in Denu may be disbanding as Pastor Gideon is trying to get work in Tema/Accra area.

Since it appears that Gideon is located for the time being in Denu, Ghana (across the border from Togo), our work is now in Ghana also. During this visit the studies continued and there was discussion on outreach. Pastor Gideon holds services at the humble school with attendance at about 15. He also goes to his home village, Atidzive, to hold a Bible study for three people. He was given transport money to go there until the missionary returns to visit. The Easter service had 17. On April 3rd the missionary baptized Pastor and Mrs. Gideon’s baby son, Samuel, and another member’s 16 month old child, Godwin. A business loan was given to Pastor Gideon to help him provide for his family.
