St Peter’s Church. Ghana, Africa. April 2020 – Present
St. Peter’s Church in Keniago, Ghana, Africa! The Catholic community in Keniago is vibrant and is growing fast, despite the extreme poverty, the poor road conditions and the environmental devastation from deforestation created by illegal mining. Construction of a church has already begun thanks to the availability of local resources. So far the foundation, framing and roof have been completed, but the church does not have the funding necessary to complete the project. That’s where we come in! Build the Faith has agreed to help with the completion of the church.
