2017 Third Quarter

For the third quarter of 2017, Advent Lutheran focused on supporting the rural village of Awaso located in Ghana, Africa as its mission project. Advent’s own parishioner, Jacqui Kanode made her fifth trip to Ghana this September and October where she will be helped open the new junior high school located in Awaso, as well as assisting with ongoing projects in the village.

Awaso Academy International is a private, independent school that provides high quality education to the children of Awaso. The school is directed by Father Paul Mensha, a Catholic priest. Most schools in Awaso have no running water or electricity, are unable to attract credentialed teachers and suffer from overcrowding with four to five children per desk. It is the goal of Awaso Academy to enable its students to pass Ghana government exams, continue their education, secure better paying jobs and build self-esteem. The academy opened in October 2010 and has added a grade each year. They have also recently built a junior high building and will be adding the seventh grade to their campus this fall.
