We started the year with a seven day prayer and fasting program under the theme “CHANGE” to prepare ourselves for the task ahead.

The staff of Meaningful Life International met every day to fellowship and seek the face of God.  Our anchor scripture text was Romans12: 2.

As a people of faith, we were very optimistic of a successful year despite the glaring challenges of global economic meltdown resulting in dwindling donor support for our organization.  As organization that relies heavily on donor support to implement our activities, we continued to experience setbacks in our cash inflows which adversely affected our projections for the year under review.

We could not implement many of the activities as planned. However, the Lord has been faithful to us. We made some giant gains to the glory of God.  

We are eternally grateful to God and to our faithful partners who stood firmly with us in the mist of the tough times.


Access to clean water still remains a huge challenge in most of the rural communities in Ghana.

Many of these communities drink from unclean sources and in most cases, competing with animals from the same source. The situation becomes even dire when some of these water sources dry up during the drought season.


We have the calling and passion to respond to these challenges by providing them with clean and reliable source of water but are often constraint by limited financial resources.

During the year under review, we constructed five (5) boreholes in the following communities; Afatsagbleve, Alavanyo , Adetsewui, Noanyikpo  and Anuromso. These projects have impacted the lives of about 5,500 people.

In partnership with the Doron Medical Center and our summer teams, we were able to embark on two (2) major medical outreaches in some deprived communities.  


The beneficiary communities are; Adetsewui and Weme. Approximately more than 800 people benefited from the medical outreaches.

Meaningful Life International continues to reach out to many Communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ; preaching salvation and preparing souls for the second Coming of our Lord Jesus. Our Jesus Film Show outreaches have laid the foundation for Church planting in some of these communities. 


During the year under review, we organized a film show in Adetsewui through the partnership of Friends of Africa.

In partnership with Shiloh Christ life and Hill Top Church international, we also did film shows at Afienya and Newland respectively. About 35 souls were won out of our film show outreaches during the year under review.


Meaningful Life International in partnership with Harvest Missions Chapel and the Assemblies of God Campus Ministry (AGCM), KNUST campus embarked on evangelism and missions activities across the communities in Tema. About 55 souls were won to the glory of God.

By the grace of God, we were able to undertake high school outreaches in Okuapemman S.H.S and Mawuli Senior High School.

In partnership with the Harvest Missions Chapel A/G, we undertook an outreach at the Mawuli School. We organized a gospel rock show and by the grace of God, a number of the students gave their lives to Christ.

The other outreach at Okuapemman S.H.S was a leadership seminar.

Church planting is very crucial to the vision of MLI.

We appreciate the important role a decent place of worship does in the growth process of new believers.  

In partnership with the Friends of Africa organization, we planted a new church at Adetsewui community. We also donated a set of musical instruments to a newly planted church at Weme.

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 idea of the conference was to rejuvenate, revive and empower church and cooperate leaders for effective service.


The conference, which had over hundred {100} people drawn from different churches and organizations attended

MLI works hard to combine our humanitarian aid-driven projects (the Legacy Wells etc) with an empowerment component that seeks to stifle dependency and promote pure development.

Aside going into the communities to drill boreholes, the organization also makes sure the community members are well trained on how to properly care for and maintain the boreholes which includes the importance of community ownership, basic hygiene and accountability.

We embarked on community education programs in five (5) communities; Afatsagbleve, Alavanyo , Adetsewui, Noanyikpo  and Anuromso this year.

The impact of summer teams to the Missions field over the years has been life transforming. During the year under review, we received some powerful summer teams who came to do missions with us. We hosted two teams during the year under review;

  1. Ps. Steve Madsen, the founder of Cornerstone Fellowship came to partner with us to organize the RESTORE conference in Keta in the Volta region and Kumasi in the Ashanti region. A total of about fifty {50} couples attended the 2 conferences which lasted for 3 days at each venue.

    The team arrived on August 7th and departed on August 29th 2022. In partnership with the Akatsi local council of churches, the team had an impactful 15 days of ministry.  The team made donations and spent time with the orphans and the mentally challenged people, embarked on door to door evangelism, planted a church, organized medical outreaches, visited the prisons, organized pastors/church leaders seminars, youth conferences, courtesy calls among others.

This year’s special Annual Christmas outreach (SACO) was held in Madavunu, a deprived community in the Ada West District of the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.

On 25th of December, a Christmas party was organized for the entire community. We served food, drinks and water to about 700 people. We also distributed used clothing and foot wear to the people.

The widows and pastors were not left out. About 35 widows received gift packs. We also gave out gift packages to 5 pastors on the field.

The peak of the event was a bible quiz which was keenly contested by five {5} churches. At the end of the contest, the church of Pentecost emerged winners.

Each of the ten {10} participants received certificate of participation and the top three {3} churches received trophies in the order of 1st 2nd and 3rd positions respectively.

To the glory of God, Meaningful Life International established the northern sector operations office about 3 years ago to help coordinate evangelism and outreach activities in the 5 regions of the northern part of Ghana.


Through our hard working and dedicated officer of the sector, Evangelist Joshua Ziblim, who himself is a native of the area and a former Muslim, there has been tremendous effort to evangelize especially the Muslim dominated communities in these areas and the results are amazing.

During the year under review, we have successfully organized market place evangelism outreaches, Jesus Film shows and Crusades. A total of 289 people, by the grace of God got converted and gave their lives to Christ Jesus. The following were the communities where the crusades were held;

Northern Region

✓ Bagliga Dakpemyili, Koo Tingli, Woribogu Kukoo, Woribogu, Nyerizee, Bagliga, Gangberi Kukoo and Nyankpala (around the Chief palace)


Savannah Region

✓ Kulipi, Dojirago, Dalogyili, Loloto, Darivayili, Dakpaimyili, Jantong and Wulanyili

  • Unwillingness by some communities to accept us to preach Christ in their communities

  • Inadequate resources to support community entry and exits (a token to seek permission from the chiefs).

  • Inability to do effective follow up on especially new converts due to logistical constraints {motorbike}. Most of these communities are scattered across the region with bad roads.

  • Difficulty to power appliance as a result of constant failure of generator. { the current generator is old}  Inadequate resources and logistics (used clothing, finances to support school dropouts and the sick) to support the congregations within the communities of the evangelism catchment area.


  1. We pray for the Lord to bless us with a new strong motorbike and a generator for effective follow ups in communities where programmes were held.

  2. We would intensify gospel crusades and Market place evangelism in bigger communities.

  3. Distribution of used clothing to the many deprived communities

  4. Organize medical outreaches in these communities

  5. We are targeting to reach out and convert about 1000 souls to Christ by the glory of God.

  6. We are praying for a strong pickup vehicle to enable us embark on effective ministry in the northern sector of Ghana.


It is our great desire and prayer that through the grace of God, many who have heard, saw and felt the love of Christ through our ministry will enjoy perpetual goodness and soundness in their endeavors as Christ shows Himself more and more to them and their generations. We would like to specially appeal to you to support our northern sector operations office to reach out to even more souls.
