We are glad to see interest in missions to Ghana via Relevate Church. If you’ve ever watched some kittens you will have noticed that a kitten will be standing there one minute than all of a sudden leap straight into the air and take off. Yeah, Relevate Church missions is much like a kitten; therefore, we want you to be prepared.
If you are interested in missions to the Mamprusi people of Ghana West Africa, any planned trips will appear on this page along with other portions of the Relevate Church websites. I would encourage you to go ahead and download the PDF book "Ghana for Newbies" (at the bottom of this page).
After receiving many gray hairs from my preparation, I wanted to make this guide to assist others in preparing for their trip, and the trip itself. We will cover precautions of the trip along with step by step, detailed description of the process from start to finish. I hope this book will be helpful to you; and that it will keep ten years from instantly being gained to your life.
I am Wayne Smith and I’ve got experience in a variety of survival situations. “Survival?”, you ask. I want to look at it this way. EVERYTHING in life is survival. Maybe not like being alone in the desert but we work, take meds, exercise, etc.; this is survival. Ghana has a different level of survival. Your going to a foreign country with which you may stay if you don’t handle your paperwork correctly, they may keep some of your things, they have killer mosquito’s, killer bugs, killer water, killer food, killer temperatures. Don’t fool yourself. From the moment you step off the plane you are in a different survival mode than America. It’s not like being out in the desert without water or food but if you make the wrong moves, you can cause yourself great harm or even death. This makes this publication and your guide to Ghana very important.
