'Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.' Colossians 1:28
Portia is based in Accra as the women’s worker for Relite Africa Ministries - a Ghanaian-led training scheme that was started in 2009 by Rev Yaw Boamah. Relite aims to teach university students at one of Ghana’s top universities to ‘correctly handle the word of truth’ (2 Timothy 2:15).
Around 74% of Ghanaians describe themselves as Christians, with a fairly large proportion of these attending church every Sunday. However, the majority are not clear about the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and the centrality of Jesus’ death on the cross. Most are nominal in their faith or focused on their own prosperity now in this world.
There is real spiritual hunger among many Ghanaians, so there is a great need for the Bible to be clearly taught and future leaders equipped with bible handling skills. Relite aims to provide this training to godly and able students who, God-willing, may go into full time bible teaching ministry in the future.
Portia’s role at Relite includes 1-2-1s with female students, teaching bible handling skills and training students for evangelism. Portia also serves at her local church by teaching the Bible to women, youth and children and leading studies for bible study leaders.
'For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as you servants for Jesus’ sake.' 2 Corinthians 4:5

Good evening to you and your family! It has been a while and trust you’re well. Thank you so much for your faithful commitment to pray and support the gospel work here so that I can equip and train women, students and youth and children leaders. The last few months have been busy with visiting family, Christian apologetics events on campus, on-going discipleship with students and Relite bible handling.
