Today, we celebrate a truly remarkable milestone in the life of Scribes Global—the celebration of our six-year anniversary. Indeed, God has been so good to us. While reflecting on our journey thus far, I realized that this occasion holds profound significance for me, as it represents not just a mere anniversary but a testament to the miraculous journey I have witnessed. Against all odds, our organization stands strong today, defying the challenges that threaten to halt our progress. There were quite a number of times I wanted to end it all. I almost did, on several occasions but thankfully, I was strengthened by God. It is with heartfelt gratitude and overwhelming joy that I reflect on the remarkable impact we have achieved by God’s grace.
As we celebrate this feat, I want to share with you six reasons why I am immensely grateful to God for the remarkable journey we have embarked upon:
Grateful for the beginning
When we embarked on this journey six years ago, our mission was clear — to spread the gospel through creative arts. Along the way, we recognized the importance of holding meetings and events to achieve this goal. On numerous occasions, we found ourselves in need of capturing pictures, videos etc to document our works and activities but at that time, It was a challenge because none of our members owned a 'good phone' with a capable camera, let alone an iPhone. Although it may seem trivial, insignificant or not worth celebrating, I want to publicly thank God for that because I prayed continuously for a moment like this. Before I continue, I will like to say this is not our metric to measure growth.
Our growth lies not in the accumulation of material possessions but in our transformation into witnesses of a prayer-answering God. He has faithfully taken care of us, providing for our needs and sustaining us. I share this testimony to glorify God. Today, we are blessed with the support of several individuals who possess the necessary resources and willingly assist us in capturing these precious moments. God has been exceedingly good to us and continues to be so, and there are undoubtedly more blessings in store for us.
Grateful for growth
Secondly, we have also experienced remarkable growth in our faith and spirituality. Reflecting upon the journey, I am filled with immense joy when I consider the spiritual maturity that many of our members have attained. It is such a beautiful thing to see how people who may not have understood the importance of prayer, join our prayer meetings. People who were battling issues are in a far better place now. I can point to a number of members who can testify of God’s goodness because of Scribes Global. While there is still much work to be done, I am profoundly grateful for those who consistently prioritize attending our meetings and for those who, even when unable to participate, wholeheartedly share their support in various ways. We will only get better.
For the financial provision when we always need it.
Another remarkable area of growth for which I am deeply grateful is our financial stability. It brings me great joy to share that, for the first time in five years, we found ourselves in a position where we had surplus funds after our annual event, Scripts On Scrolls. When our treasurer conveyed this news to me, I was genuinely awestruck. In times past, it was uncommon for us to have leftover funds, as there were often expenses to settle even after the event. This was largely due to the fact that not all members fully grasped the importance of giving to the ministry, resulting in the burden falling on only a few individuals.
Today, however, I am filled with gratitude because God has blessed us with a growing understanding and a generous spirit among our members. We are now witnessing a shift in the mindset towards giving, and it is truly a testament to God's faithfulness. His provision has been evident as we experience financial stability and are no longer burdened by the constant struggle to cover expenses. Again, much work must be done, but God is faithful and will help us.
we've come from far
For a growing and strong Leadership team.
I would like to also express my heartfelt gratitude to our exceptional leadership team, both at the ministerial level and the campus level. I am truly blessed to have such a dedicated group of individuals working tirelessly for the ministry and it brings me immense joy to hear from friends and acquaintances who have expressed their admiration for our leadership team as well.
Truth is, many of them are engaged yet despite juggling multiple responsibilities and commitments, they prioritize their devotion to Jesus and their passion for spreading the gospel. They consistently go above and beyond, putting in extra effort to ensure that our goals are achieved and only God can fully reward them for their tremendous contributions.
For our partners
To all our dedicated partners who have generously provided resources, guidance, and financial assistance, together, we have created a Jesus-loving community that continues to inspire and empower individuals from all walks of life with the gospel. I would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who has supported us in any way. Your commitment to our cause has been instrumental in our growth and has allowed us to expand our reach and impact. This is specifically dedicated to my mentor- Abigail Okyere, Joanna Quaye and Nana Boakye Mensah-Bonsu. There are many more whom I have personally thanked and continue to do but I want to use this opportunity to say thank you. Your generosity and belief in our vision have made a lasting difference in the lives of those we serve.
For our global community
Finally, I am thankful to all the members of our global community. Our growth and accomplishments would not have been possible without the unwavering support of each and every one of you. Together, we have organized numerous events, workshops, fellowship meetings, and outreach programs, touching the lives of countless individuals in Ghana. As we celebrate this six-year anniversary, I want to express my deepest gratitude to each and every one of you. Your unwavering dedication, passion, and belief in our mission and vision have been the driving force behind our success. Thank you to all our passionate members who have tirelessly volunteered their time, gift and resources, you have all played an integral role in shaping Scribes Global into what it is today.
As we move forward into the next phase of our journey with God, I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. There is still much work to be done, souls to be won, many more lives to touch, and countless stories to be told. With your continued support and dedication, I am confident that we will achieve even greater heights and make an even more significant impact in the years to come.
we've really come from far!
Once again, thank you for your unwavering commitment to Scribes Global. Today, as we celebrate our six-year anniversary, let us reflect on how far we have come and thank God. Just as I mentioned earlier this year, I reiterate these words as we come to a close. God is giving us space, sound and sight. This is the season, Hallelujah.
Now, I humbly make a request to you. I kindly ask you to consider becoming a partner and supporting us in our great work. There is still much more to be accomplished as we aspire to extend our outreach to senior high schools through an initiative called MOVE (Missions, Outreach Via Events). This endeavour requires significant resources, and we firmly believe that, with your generous contribution and our unwavering trust in God, we will be able to achieve this mission. Additionally, we have numerous other projects that we are earnestly praying for, such as acquiring musical instruments for our worship team and obtaining technical equipment for evangelism purposes, among other needs. I invite you to prayerfully consider making a contribution to our ministry.
Your support, whether through financial giving or any other form of assistance, will play a crucial role in enabling us to fulfil our missions and help us share the gospel with the world. May God richly bless you for your consideration and generosity.
