Our Missions Trip
In 1995 Rev Calhoun was about to be voted into a Church of God community church of Fisk Missouri. Making plans to go to Ghana Accura Africa to visit Rev Kofi Akutuah Obeng and his LeBm church and preach and maybe help with plans with Church plant and a Hospital and Orphanage vision. Tragedy happened at his job in Dexter Missouri while working for Hudson Foods was stuck in a ice auger in the plant on December 19th 1995. Losing his right leg below the knee and a crushed left foot this Tragedy blew everything out of the water. Rev Calhoun had to give up his ministry temporary until this hoarded injury would be healed. Rev Calhoun ahead and sent a box of books to Kofi for his LEBM library and some over the counter medical type supply's and some financial support. He frothed the ministry over to a good friend who became the head pastor of the Church of God he had been trying out for.
Everything from 1995 has been correspondence by mail or email and now social networking. Rev Calhoun was sold out by his attorney who he had trusted by convincing him closing his workman's comp case. His settlement was small and lasted two years what he had left of the settlement is still in a retirement IRA but with the stock crash after 2001 he has struggled to get back to the original Amount. That's why we are asking for donations to complete this vision to bring revival to Ghana Africa and to help amputees like Pozo who was featured on the Oprah Winphery show. It has taken 15 years or more to get everything fixed and proper fitting of his Artificial leg. Rev Calhoun has personally put over 18000 dollars into financing his own recovery and paying off loans just to survive in these economic times. With very little help from his industrialist family who he had put a lot of money into his trips to visit his late step-mother in Washington State. Including living back in his home town for five years, moving back to Montana where he resides in his own home to this day. He has trusted God with a whole hearted belief that the Spirit of God would guide him. (Come back for updates of this story.With Pictures and Sound bytes from Rev Kofi)
