Word Alive Mission
Located on the Atlantic shore of Ghana, Word Alive Missions Association serves numerous villages and towns in Western, Ghana. The Rev. Charles Nyane leads the mission. Founded in 1996, by January of 2000 the mission expanded to ten churches, two schools and an orphanage. Living Stone Christian School offers elementary education to the children of the area and is considered the best in the region. Word Alive Bible College offers courses in New and Old Testament studies, Biblical Interpretation, Greek, Hebrew and Theology. It is a training ground for those entering ministry and a resource for area pastors. Word Alive Orphanage houses foundling children. Myth and superstition of the polygamous Nzema tribe teach that a tenth child will curse a family. In remote areas the tenth child is abandoned in the jungle or put to death at birth. The orphanage takes in such children, raises and educates them, making what was once cursed a blessing. (A mission of the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches)
