Joe’s Podcast Episode #022

We have been working very hard to learn the Fante language and culture.  It is our hearts’ desire to communicate the Gospel to the people here in the Western Region of Ghana in a way that will speak to their hearts.

For a couple hundred years, missionaries have been coming to this part of the world and just used their mother tongue and a translator.  “What did he say?” is a common question that the missionary will ask.  The national language in Ghana is English, but it is only understood by about 30% of the people.  The Gospel is best understood in the heart language!

This week our question comes from Mark.  Mark and Mike have a podcast called Solomon’s Porch Radio.  Mark asks about how we apply I Corinthians 9:19-23 to our ministry here in Ghana.
