Updates as of July 7, 2021
We thank God for the tremendous growth of our Noble Ministry.
In line with our vision we were able to do our first presentation to transform the lives of some members. Three people received hair dryers. Four people also received hand sewing machines which was amounted to 3800 ghs all from the support of our partners.
In addition, the church from its cofers also donated 1000 ghs which was shared among five perty traders in the church.
Furthermore, six people had also applied to learn trades which include 2 people for dress making, 1000cedis each (2000) 3 people for hair dressing, 800 cedis each( 2400) and one person for tiling, 800cedis. These are yet to be paid as we are believing God for offerings to meet these needs.
All these is to equip members to at least put food on their table and hold on to their faith.
As we were all aware that by the special grace of God we were able to roof our chapel about two months ago from donations, loans and monies borrowed from other members. The church was able to made two months payment of the 10.000 Ghana cedis loan (1100cedis per month) this means that our previous debt of 16361cedis had been reduced by 2200cedis (16361-2200 =14161)
However, apart from the above debt, we are also left with putting doors and windows to make the place safe and secure from all intruders.
The increased rate of members had also placed high demand on chairs. The church tries in providing some but at a very little quantity.
As far as we want to promote the Kingdom of God, these are some few challenges and the tremendous achievements we have made within Six months of it operation. We say God bless you all for the generous support in divers ways which is giving Hope to the hopeless. The Founder, Management and the Entire Congregation of ODSM is very thankful to you all even as you continue to support us to do away with our challenges. Thanks Thanks Thanks.

Open Doors Salvation Ministries (Ghana)
Update as of February 28, 2021
Open Doors Salvation is continuing their building effort in Ghana and as the rain season approaches, the building priority is for the roof to protect the inside of the church. Due to the rain that will soon start an effort is been made to get the building roofed. We have received some donations from the members of the church and those from our partners, we were able to get the stone, 600 blocks ( 200 was donated and 400 credited) iron rods ( 23 was donated and 9 was credited including workmanship of 200 credits) carpentry work ( all the boards for the lentil work was donated but 200 credits) workmanship credited) the workmanship for the concrete work of the lentil and block work is also yet to be look at. As of yesterday, the steel bender started work and expected to finish soon. This will enable the carpenter to continue to work. We are assuming that in the coming week, concrete should be cast and in the subsequent weeks the block will be done in a day or two. Then we move on to the roofing project. April 2021 was the initial goal for the completion of the roof construction.
The church itself is thriving as God is bringing in new souls everyday through our soul winning effort. Our noble ministry (Open Door Salvation Ministry) is three months old and below lists the current state of happenings the within the period of time:
1. The church membership strength is about 60 adults and over 60 children
2. The establishment of a school with approximately 35 students.
3. The church financial strength is 1,450gh (about 250 dollars) but there are some debt to be paid out of it.
4. Within the same period the church building was moved from the lintel level to roofing level.
5. We were able to trained some members to assist in the delivery of Sunday sermons.
6. Within the same period, we have established committees such as financial, building and education committees which are all doing well in executing their tasks.
The ministry is working within its mandate with hopes that within the next three months, with increased membership ODSM will begin giving assistance to members especially in the area of employment.
ODSM aims to build a stronger church that provides transparent ministry to our community and the country at large. Therefore, we welcome all criticism as well encouragement throughput all phases of our endeavor to grow the ministry.
Lastly, the school is doing well and currently has 32 pupils enrolled. So God is on our side and we shall surely succeed. We thank Lord of the Harvest Ministries for your partnership, prayers, and financial support.
