Posted on March 26, 2019 Pray for Rovaughna Richardson helping women in Ghana who have been freed from slavery.

In partnership with the Ghana Baptist Convention, Rovaughna works at the Baptist Vocational Training Center in a ministry rescuing, rehabilitating and educating young women who had been victims of a cultural practice called Trokosi, which has elements of human trafficking. Rovaughna’s mental health and social work background have particularly equipped her for this work.


She writes – Dear Friends! Sometimes we think that we’re only supposed to “ask” once and that’s it. Fearing that continually asking will seem imposing, insensitive or ungrateful for what we’ve already received. So, then we’re left with a need unfulfilled, turning in our mind how to fix whatever’s lacking.

However, Scripture not only says “Pray continually,” 1 Thessalonians 5:17, but Keep on Asking! “…now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy may be full and complete,” John 16:24.

Thank you for believing in the work being done in Ghana through this ministry. Its presence has influenced and impacted more than this journal will allow me to share and probably for more than we’ll earthly ever know.

Many of you have supported through one-time gifts or even turned one-time gifts into ongoing support. Whichever the case I’m truly grateful for you supporting my passion to spread God’s loving care through the vocation of Mental Health Counseling and Rehabilitation. There are currently 60 students, 20 of which that were former Trokosi or disadvantaged that I see weekly in individual or group counseling and another 9 rescued from the Shrine which unfortunately I do not currently have the capacity to see. There is great need and great opportunity for the ministry to flourish!

However, We are underfunded! The ministry reflects full support pledged (100%), however, the funds that are coming in (88% received) are not meeting the pledged support. Therefore, I ASK:
