School Supplies for Ghana

Royal Seed School Ghana

Don Moen with children of Royal Seed School.

When our children were young, Laura and I strongly believed in the importance of education. We wanted our kids to be in a school where they succeeded academically, had appropriate school supplies to learn, and where they grew in the Lord. I still believe in Christian education today, especially for kids born into a cycle of poverty. Without a Christ-centered education, many kids around the world face a lifetime of hardship and limitations.

Royal Seed is a ministry in Ghana that Worship In Action partners have supported for several years. This ministry provides food, clothing, shelter and an education to approximately 200 orphan children. Royal Seed also provides a free Christian education to 300+ additional children who live in communities near the home, and who travel to/from school every day. These children come from impoverished families who can’t afford to pay school fees. Without Royal Seed, it is unlikely many of these children would ever go to school.

We are excited to announce that over the summer months Worship In Action is sponsoring a new School Supply program to provide backpacks, school supplies, uniforms and teacher assistance for the kids of Royal Seed School in Ghana. Donations given to this new school program will meet very practical and life-long needs for hundreds of children.

A donation of $25 will purchase a backpack, pencils, erasers, and writing notebooks for one student. A gift of $50 will provide a backpack, supplies and a new school uniform. To make a donation, please click here or on the donate button below. And, watch our Facebook page for updates on this exciting program. Thank you for joining us.

God bless,

Happy Easter! Jesus is risen!

With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them that there were no needy persons among them. Acts 4:33-34

The early church served Jesus wholeheartedly by testifying of all they had experienced. They heard Jesus’ words, felt his miracles, saw him hanging on the cross, watched his body go into a tomb, AND most importantly, they witnessed his resurrection. Acts Christians were full of the resurrection life of Jesus, and by his grace there were no needy ones among them.

My dream for Worship In Action is people of all ages will come to know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and there will be fewer and fewer needs among the family of God because of his grace at work in us. This vision comes to pass every month as our partners generously give where there are great needs.

For example…

This Christmas we asked our partners to give a children’s Bible to each child at Royal Seed Home in Ghana. I believe in the power of the word of God to transform lives, and that children need to grow up hearing Bible stories as a foundation of faith. I’m thrilled to report the Bibles our partners purchased are now in the hands of the children who use them as a part of their daily education. Thank you for making this possible.

WIA Christmas Bible Outreach

WIA recently established a Baby Rescue Fund to assist with the needs of abandoned babies who come to Royal Seed Home in Ghana.  Since establishing the fund, we have received requests to provide three desperately needed surgeries for babies. One baby boy named Kobby, whose esophagus does not connect to his stomach, eats through an external tube inserted into his stomach. WIA partners funded Kobby’s surgery, as well as surgeries for six other children. What a life-saving and life-giving gift these surgeries are for the children! Thank you!

Below is a link to our Baby Rescue Fund. Please consider giving a monthly donation to support the needs of rescued babies. These monthly donations allow us to send regular support for medicine, diapers, food and other needs. Your donations also contribute to life-saving surgeries like Kobby’s. Together, we are doing our part to eliminate needs among the family of God. Thank you for joining us.

May God bless you and your family. May the power of the resurrection fill your heart with joy and meet all your needs.

Baby Rescue

Babies are a gift from heaven.

Worship In Action Baby Rescue Fund

For many years of our marriage, Laura and I struggled to have children. Then one day Laura became pregnant, and the Lord miraculously gave us five children. Our kids are now adults, and bring Laura and me such great joy. We also have three grandchildren and the fourth one is on the way.  When I say, “babies are a gift from heaven” I mean it with all my heart.

On one of our first trips to Ghana, our good friends, Daniel and Veronica Mensah, took us to a home for children they support. The experience opened our eyes to a very great need. At the home lived a half dozen or so tiny rescued babies. Authorities discovered these newborns abandoned in garage bags, in ditches of secluded roads, behind buildings and even partially buried alive in a cemetery. Each child was the offspring of a woman in a desperate situation. Perhaps she was one who walked the streets of Accra selling peanuts and packages of gum. Or, maybe a teenage girl who hid her pregnancy and gave birth in a restroom. No one will ever know. Every story was tragic, but each child still a gift from heaven.

I have met many famous people during my lifetime. Naomi, founder and mother of Royal Seed Home, may never be famous on earth but her work will be famous in heaven. Naomi has dedicated her life to rescuing babies. She protects, nurtures, educates and eventually releases these once abandoned children into adulthood with purpose and hope. Her work is very close to the heart of God, and Laura and I are committed to supporting it.

Last week, Naomi received three separate calls to pick up babies found by authorities. The babies were all very ill and in desperate need of medical attention (their pictures are below). They require hospital stays, ongoing medical treatment and around-the-clock care. But one day soon, we will see them sit up, crawl, walk and begin to grow as healthy children…because Naomi willingly received them.

Worship In Action has created a new fund dedicated to the rescue and care of abandoned babies. This is a unique fund that will be available to Naomi as needed. The costs associated with caring for a sick newborn surpass the daily food, clothing and shelter needs of the children at the home. Medical bills of newborns often drain home resources, and we want to help.

Please consider joining us as a monthly benefactor of Worship In Action’s Baby Rescue Fund. A gift of any amount will literally save a newborn baby’s life. To join us, please click the donation button below.
