Team members at the opening of the borehole

The Bosome Freho District in Ghana’s Ashanti Region is home to the Anuromso Community. There are roughly five hundred (500) individuals living there, of which more than 70% are women and children. For years, the residents of this community have been using unwholesome water sources for both home and industrial uses.  Children, particularly females, frequently had to spend hours gathering water, which prevented them from routinely attending school and limited their future chances. This circumstance had negative effects on the people of the community.


In honor of Joanne Spycher, a borehole was dug for this village by Meaningful Life International in collaboration with the Hartley Spycher family.

The Meaningful Life International Team, under the direction of Dr. Godwin Ahlijah (PhD), launched this significant project on September 12, 2023, for the benefit of the public. The Chief and elders of the community, the District Chief Executive, the Member of Parliament {senator}, and other dignitaries were present at the celebration.  The community was ecstatic about everything that had been given to them.

The Member of Parliament (Senator) also expressed his appreciation for what had been done. He also recounted the number of petitions he had sent to colleagues, companies, associations, and humanitarian organizations asking for their support in providing the community with a clean source of water until our team finally showed up.


Meaningful Life International would like to thank and appreciate the Hartley Spycher Family for this partnership. The community of Anuromso would have never gotten access to a clean and safe water source at this time if the family had not stepped in. Words cannot describe how happy and appreciative we are.

God richly bless you.

There are still many more ministry opportunities and such communities that are waiting to have a taste of fresh water for the first time in their lives.


We want to invite you, our cherished friend and ministry partner, to continue to partner with us to bring relief to the less privileged.

An invite to the Special Annual Christmas Outreach



As the holiday season approaches, the spirit of generosity and goodwill envelops communities around the world. It’s a time when people come together to celebrate, share, and make a positive impact on the lives of others.


In the heart of this tradition lies the Special Annual Christmas Outreach, a heartwarming initiative birthed by Meaningful Life International that exemplifies the true meaning of Christmas.

This year’s outreach has been scheduled to take place on December 25th, 2023, in Medavunu, a deprived community in the Greater Accra region of Ghana. Our activities during this outreach will include the donation of items (clothing and shoes, toys, educational materials, etc.) to the community members, a gift package for about 70 widows, and a Christmas party for the children on Christmas day.


You may donate a Christmas gift to a child or give your widow’s mite to one of the 70 widows by buying a piece of cloth and other food items.


We are counting on your usual partnership and trusting that together we can bring the joy of Christmas to the people of the Medavunu community. We know that God is going to use your gifts to draw many souls to Himself this Christmas.

The Special Annual Christmas Outreaches


The spirit of kindness and generosity permeates communities everywhere as the holiday season draws near. It’s a time when people come together to celebrate, share, and make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Access to clean and reliable sources of water is a fundamental human right, essential for sustenance, health, and development. Unfortunately, the people of Nornyikpo have had to leave without this essentail basic need for many years. Nestled between rolling hills and lush forests, Nornyikpo was a picturesque community that had been grappling with water scarcity for generations. Its only water source, a small and heavily polluted stream, was even inadequate to meet the needs of its growing population.

The people of this community had to travel long distances to access water, often carrying heavy loads back to their homes. The lack of clean water led to health issues, particularly among children, women and the elderly, who are more susceptible to waterborne diseases. The absence of a reliable source of clean water had far-reaching consequences for daily life in Nornyikpo. Basic activities such as cooking, cleaning, and hygiene became arduous tasks.

A beacon of hope emerged in early 2023 when the Mission Church, USA through Meaningful Life International donated a borehole that would provide fresh water for the over 500 population in the community. The joy and excitement that greeted the commencement of the project clearly demonstrates how so dear this gesture is to the hearts of the people.  

By providing clean water for Nornyikpo community, we have not only addressed a basic necessity but also ignited a ripple effect of health, empowerment, and prosperity. Above all, the grounds are now fertile for the penetration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The legacy of the partnership between MLI and the Mission Church stands as a testament to the enduring power of human compassion and innovation in addressing some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

Your contribution and all you do, supporting us in prayers helps us to fulfill our mission of creating a brighter and safer future for all and above all bringing them the gospel of Christ.

Excited to see the next life-changing and community-impacting mandate we will embark on?

We just wraped up a life transforming missions trip with the Friends of Africa Organisation this August, bringing hope to the hopeless and helping all who are in need. We spent close to a month doing missions in the Akatsi South district of the Volta region. We organized free medical outrreachs in 2 deprived communities, organized leadership seminars for the pastors, church leaders, women and the youth. We also organized marriage seminars, donated to the prisons, orphanages and the widows/aged.

There are many more of ministry opportunities and such communities who are waiting to have a taste of fresh water for the first time in their lives.

Would you be part of this history making?

We would be glad to partner with you.

Ministry Updates



Meaningful Life International trains, mentors, and equips tomorrow’s leaders today. We have been working to teach young people, particularly those in high schools, fundamental leadership skills and biblical principles that will improve their lives and improve the communities in which they live. We believe that every individual is endowed with the capacity to be successful when given the right opportunities, direction, and support.


During the period under review, we organized a career guidance and counseling session for the students of Okuapemman Senior High School in Akropong, in the Eastern Region of Ghana. A total of about 1,000 students were in attendance.


These students received guidance from our facilitator team, who also assisted them in creating a future vision. The group allayed the concerns, apprehensions, and anxieties common to young people in this age range. The students were spoken to on the importance of venturing into a career that does not become a burden to them but a source of joy. They were also advised to brandish their talents and skills as secondary support for the career they have in mind.


It was a beautiful experience to be a voice of hope and encouragement for these young ones.  Most of the questions the students asked had to do with parental consent to their career choices and the bridge between education and skills like sewing, hairdressing, and soccer, among others.  The students were thrilled and cannot wait for yet another opportunity of this kind.


As we express our gratitude to the partners who supported us financially and in any other way, we  want to encourage you, our faithful partners, to continue to help us reach out to many more of these young generations to help shape their lives for a better future.


A very high percentage of Ghana’s population still remains unevangelized and unreached, and the Great Commission lies largely unfulfilled. According to statistics from the Ghana Evangelism Committee, only in Ghana are there 14,000 towns and villages without churches. The heart desire of Meaningful Life International, therefore, is to see churches planted in these areas that have been neglected for so long and have services and film shows with some already established churches to strengthen them.

In line with our vision, we partnered with the Shiloh Christ Life Church in Afienya in the Greater Accra Region to show the film “War Room”, a compelling drama with humor and heart that explores the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives. At the end of the movie, we had a discussion session, and the impact was amazing.


These types of programs are necessary for strengthening rural churches and evangelizing more people for the kingdom of God. Rural communities and churches are numerous and need them. Please partner with us to spread the gospel through our film show project.


Meaningful Life International has taken up the challenge to provide safe drinking water for deprived communities by drilling boreholes in such communities. Currently, Meaningful Life International has drilled over fifty (50) boreholes for deprived communities across the country. The latest community to benefit from our borehole projects is Afatsagbleve in the Volta region of Ghana. This community now have access to clean drinking water after more than 100 years of drinking from unwholesome water sources. Today, the women and children do not have to travel long distances to fetch water from ponds and rivers for household usage. This is a huge relief! The joy and excitements on the faces of the people tells it all.

There are many more of such communities who are waiting to have a taste of fresh water for the first time in their lives. Would you be part of this history making? We would be glad to partner with you.



Meaningful Life International, in partnership with Rev. Steve Madsen, the founder of Cornerstone Fellowship USA, successfully organized a leadership conference dubbed RESTORE CONFERENCE 2023. The main goal of the conference was to empower and reenergize church and community leaders for efficient service.


The conference, which had over a hundred (100) people drawn from different churches and organizations attending, was organized in two parts.  The first one was held at the Eli Beach Resort in Keta, in the Volta region of Ghana, from April 20 through April 22, 2023. About 50 participants were present at this conference. The second part of the conference took place from April 24th through April 26th, 2023, at the Noda Hotel in Kumasi, in the Ashanti Region. Over 50 people also attended this event. Rev. Steve Madsen and his associates fully underwrote the cost of lodging and food for the six [6] day conference.


Rev. Madsen, who was the main conference speaker, taught participants using Bible characters like Moses, David, and the Three Marys. Participants were grouped into smaller numbers of five [5] people during focus group discussions after each presentation.


The conference provided participants with the chance to mingle, unwind, recharge, and revitalize for effective ministry.

All participants were left wanting more after this conference because of its impact. Every participant left the conference with maximum satisfaction. It is not surprising that they are already looking forward to the next Restore conference!

Meaningful Life International would like to thank Rev. Madsen and his faithful partners and friends for facilitating this important Restore conference 2023. On behalf of the over 100 participants who turned up for this conference, we say God richly bless you. 

Partner with us today to bring meaning to the lives of people especially the less privileged in society.
