A Creative Literary Social Action initiative (Not for Profit Charity) mobilising the Body of Christ to encourage and teach hearts one nation at a time ((Matt24:14/28:19-20)
Subsidiary of Bearwitness-Forerunner Ministries Int.
We aim to use scripturally inspired and formulated Spoken Word Prose/Poetry to exhort, evangelise or engage in community outreach in personal homes, residential care homes, youth/learning disability Homes/Centres, Prisons and Home/cell groups for the purpose of spreading the gospel, encouraging & strengthening the faith of believers and bringing healing & deliverance to multitudes.
In May this year, the LORD put on my heart to get my poetry books Our God Reigns- Inspirational Prophetic Christian Poetry Volume 1 & 2 (Volume 3 is underway) into Residential Homes for the elderly.
There is a niche among the aforementioned; This is a creative way to evangelise or share the Good News of the Kingdom of God.
I later felt led to include Youth/Learning difficulties Recreational Centres, Church cell or home groups and Prison ministries as well.
Link to my poetry books on Amazon (Amazon allows you to see table of contents and a couple of pages as well) https://www.amazon.co.uk (Search in Amazon Books)
The books are sent free to those who want to partake of this charity, the link is just to show you what they look like. When I had this idea, I felt that I was to start this initiative and then encourage other believers in Christ to do the same.
3. How exactly can the poetry books “Our God Reigns” be used for evangelism, outreach or encouragement?
My poetry in these books covers a variety of topics, some are straight forward evangelistic, others express the nature and might of God/Jesus Christ giving thanks and glory to him for all things.
Others are an expression of the believers hope in, love for, dependence on, expectations of (etc) God and Christ.
I believe each poem is inspired by God. The poems are written with scriptures in mind and some are formulated from specific scriptures. At times there are bible quotes within the poems. 99% have scriptural references at the end of the poems.
(For more on Deborah E. Nyamekye’s books click here)
The person who decides to use a poem can do any of the following:
-simply read the poem out (or perform it – some are spoken word /story telling prose) and welcome comments and questions.
-start of or end with reading of the scriptures referenced within or under the poem in question before reading it.
-do the aforementioned but also prepare a short exhortation or teaching around the subject of the poem.
-before starting of course one has to pray and also ask the LORD to use them to ask questions or say things related to the poems or the poems themselves would result in discussions intended to plant redemptive seeds, cause people to make a decision for Christ or rededicated their lives to Christ.
My hope is that the person will use this as an opportunity to also ask if anyone wants prayer or would like to attend a Church if these readings are outside the church setting e.g. Residential Homes & Youth Homes/Centres.
A list of local churches that one has researched should be on hand and one or two suggested if the answer is yes.
4. Who can get a free copy?
Anyone who agrees to pursue a similar Ministry in Residential Care Homes or Youth/Learning Disabilities Recreational Centres, Prison ministries or use it for their cell or home groups will get a free copy of one of my poetry books to start with.
When in future I have connected with management in centres who would welcome such a Ministry, I will also let those who connect with Maranatha SocialCare know of them. My vision is to have a database of such centres.
They will decide which one of the volumes they will start with first by having a look at the table of contents which I can email or forward via Facebook. I can also meet with them to show them the books if possible.
Any one from any nation can request for a free book (or more) by sending
-Explain how you intend to use the Poetry book “Our God Reigns” to be a blessing in your community or through a Ministry at your church:
How many copies are needed (note the Volume 1 or 2):
Contact: Deborah Esther Nyamekye
5. What is the Author’s request?
The author requests for quarterly reports as to how those who have copies of her books are getting on in terms of pursuing the vision statement (point 1) or goals of this Social Action for the glory of God.
The reporting is informal and can be verbal, by email or handwritten.
A willingness to pray with others doing the same thing locally or through a conference call across nations would be great.
6. Can anyone give a donation?
As this is a Not for Profit charity, we welcome donations which includes postage costs.
Please contact me personally if you would like to donate. We will supply account details on our website.
We ask for your prayers as we take this Ministry forward, trusting God that He will fulfil this mission as He birthed it.
This is part of us doing our part in spreading the Word of God in all the earth before the end of the age so that as many people would hear it, make a decision for Christ or be strengthen in their faith.
God bless you Deborah E. Nyamekye
