Missions Sunday

We’ve been working for 15 years now in Ghana with an NGO Rescue Aid Mission. Pastor Osmond Asensoh is the Chief Executive of the charity. Established in 1985, Rescue Aid Mission has grown to include more and more projects meeting social, physical, educational and spiritual needs of children, families and communities in Ghana.  This includes schools, churches, health clinics and poverty relief to villages. 

We started our involvement with the building of FAYEF School and supporting the children living in Home of Hope. Most of these children are now adults, and have achieved a full education. There are still ten kids living at Home of Hope and they are all happy and loved and appreciative of everyone who has contributed to their lives. The older children still come home at weekends, and Ernestina is now a teacher at the school. We visit two villages in the bush with food supplies, and have contributed towards building work in Kokroshwe and Honi.
Over the years with problems with rental of buildings in Jamestown, the ghetto area of Accra, we have realised the value of having your own facilities. So in 2010 we bought land to build a church in Ghana. It is situated on top of a hill, looking down to the Atlantic Ocean.
A church in Africa is the hub and the heart of the community. It becomes a place of worship, obviously. But an effective church offers so much more. A foodbank. A clothing bank. A place of social and emotional support. And a base for Medical Clinics. 
We buy supplies and hire people to build when we have raised funds for each stage. For about four years now, the Sunday School room has been complete and has electricity, and so Mossvale Community Sanctuary hold services, and the Sunday School is held under an awning outside. The church meets every Sunday morning and has services on Tuesdays and Fridays. Once a month they hold an all night prayer meetings. 
The life expectancy in Ghana is still early 60s. You’re 15 times more likely to die as an infant in Ghana than in the UK. We don’t want to be overly morbid, and there are still nations far worse off.  The needs of the people in the surrounding area are: Housing, jobs, water, security and electricity. Many members of the church are squatters who stay in half built homes on the hill. Health care is very poor in the area as well. So on our trips we hold medical outreaches, bringing in nurses and doctors to treat people in the bush villages. We treat them, feed them, pray with them, and when necessary refer them to hospital and provide the fees for treatment.
Mossvale is run by honest, Godly people who will literally and spiritually save lives and bring hope to men, women and children. It will become a self sufficient resource by hiring it out to other organisations and individuals for conferences, weddings and naming ceremonies, allowing us to continue to reach out to more in need.
The senior pastor is Gladstone, who many of you met last November. He is a young man who has overcome the loss of his parents, and has excelled at University, and even more so in his desire to serve the Lord. He has a full team of volunteers working under him in many ministries. Currently they have an average of 100 people attending Sunday Service. Over a quarter of these are children also attending the Sunday School. The security man Kwame and family lives in the building. Unfortunately although the church has an outside toilet, it has no water supply yet! We have made amazing progress and now are working on the interior of the sanctuary. Handrails are being installed on the staircases. We will be buying sand and cement to start screeding walls in preparation for painting.
There are several ways how you can help:
  • Pray! Missions trip is 5th-13th November
  • Contribute regularly on a Sunday with your spare change into the missions box
  • Give in to our annual offering
  • Eat at the Mossy Cafe – a percentage of our profits goes with us to Ghana
  • Come along to our events – the concerts, quiz nights and cake auctions! 
  • Follow our progress on the Facebook page or website…
Hillsong United - Look to You
2gether (Paisley & District Evangelical Alliance) have become increasingly exercised to encourage the churches to pray together for Paisley and Renfrewshire. 

We are aware that many Christians across the church community in Renfrewshire pray regularly, but we sense a call from The Lord to come together and seek His Face, and pray for God to revive His Church and move among the people of Renfrewshire as He has done in other Scottish communities in times past.

Next year in August 2020 we are prayerfully considering an evangelistic initiative called The Turning and believe The Lord is going to use this to begin to move powerfully in our region. 

In preparation for this, following the Biblical principle of "preparing the way of The Lord" as John The Baptist did, we are calling on all Christians with a heart for Renfrewshire to meet together regularly to pray.
Notice of construction work in Mossvale Hall
The flooring in the corridor, all toilets and corridor cupboards in the Mossvale Hall will be replaced from Monday 4th November for approximately one week. All property in cupboards must be removed by Saturday 2nd November. Because of the potential for noise and dust, to ensure minimal disruption to groups that normally use the Mossvale Hall, we suggest that the church sanctuary is used that week, and the bathroom outside the creche.

Notice of closure of the Mossy Cafe
The Mossy Cafe will be closed to the general public on Tuesday 5th, Wednesday 6th, Friday 8th, Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th November. Normal service will resume on Friday 15th November at 10am.
