Ghana: Working together with our Japanese Sisters
By Marthe Whyte, WFWP Ghana
Five Japanese sisters led by Mrs Nomura, the wife of the late Reverend K. Nomura, Ghana’s former national Messiah from Japan, visited Ghana and members.
Since their mission in Ghana many years ago, Mrs. Nomura has developed great love for Ghana and has put up a local scholarship scheme to support the education of some children in Ghana. She was able to get Japanese foster parents for many Ghanaian school children. In her absence, the scheme is supervised by the local members of WFWP Ghana. To be able to support WFWP Ghana, our Japanese sisters from WFWP Japan visited Ghana and join the local team of WFWP Ghana to carry out activities.
This year, our sisters arrived on Wednesday June 6th, 2018 and departed from Ghana on June 14th 2018. During their week stay in Accra, they joined WFWP activities in Ghana few days.
On Friday 8th and Monday 11th, they visited the pupils and students under the scholarships scheme to be able to convey the greetings from their various foster parents. The students are in the communities of Opah, Odumase and Amamoley in Ghana.
On Saturday They joined our team in the community of Danchira in Accra on Saturday,9th June 2018. We gathered more than 80 people to give them education based on family values.
WFWP Ghana team also organized a talk on the danger of HIV/Aids and the future of our youth in Ghanaian Child, a school located at Barrier, a suburb of Accra. More than 100 students assembled that day. The activity took place on Wednesday, 13th June 2018.
Beside these major activities, our Japanese sisters had fellowship with the local members at the Mile 7 Temple in Accra where they rewarded second generations who took part in a drawing competition last year.
They also gave the opportunity to few children from the Accra church to join the scholarship scheme for the next Academic year.
Finally, before going back to Japan, our sisters joined the members to celebrate the 56th Day of all True Things on Thursday, 14th June, 2018.
FFWPU Ghana and WFWP Ghana are forever grateful for their support and assistance.
