We live in a world today where many things happening around us seem to take away our hope of a better society. The gospel has been narrowed to save our souls but cannot change our communities. Many of us pray for God’s Kingdom to come on earth every day yet are not concerned what God has shaped us to do. I have come to understand that God’s Kingdom is justice and righteousness for the orphan, the fatherless and the helpless babies that are aborted daily. “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? (Mic.6:8)
All through my life, God has awakened in me the passion to step up and do something not for myself. Examining my spiritual gifts, heartfelt passions, abilities, personality and experiences, (SHAPE), it had become obvious that I have been shaped to speak for the least and keep Hope Alive. I have received a mandate to be a voice for the voiceless. This is the story behind the ministry, Hope Alive!
I was born and raised in Ghana, west of Africa and have deep appreciation of the sacrifices made on my behalf to be where I am today. I had a shameful story as a bastard growing up which I did not share with strangers. Growing up in my context, which is favored by honor and shame values, certain stories remained only in close knit families. Over the years I travelled around West Africa to know that my story or God’s story in my life has the power to help several people to hope for a better life and society. I have seen God touch lives of younger women to have hope in their despair. I have appeared in dreams to people warning them to keep their babies. I have come to the conclusion that God can use anyone, and even a bastard like me for his glory because of the image of God in me!
