How it all Started

In September 2002, Pastor Kathleen gain admission to study International Hospitality Management at Manchester Metropolitan University.

That time, the family was 5 made up of Pastor Geoffrey, Pastor Kathleen, Nana Kyere 4yrs, Maame Konama Almost 2 years and Kwadwo Antwi just 3 Months.

Due to the ages of the children, besides not to fragment such a young family, we decided that all of us will move to Manchester from London- with the associated advantages as you could imagine.

Meanwhile, all along Pastor Kathleen had been working with Premier Christian radio in London as a Life liner. It was agreed, then that when we move, she was to continue with the radio counselling via call divert.

While in Manchester, in North Manchester in particular, we tried to look for a sound Pentecostal Church to attend but all to no avail. Pastor Kathleen went to Premier Christian radio data base of Churches yet couldn’t find one.

We eventually through a miracle in Yellow pages found Deeper life Church in Harpurhey-North Manchester. Prior to finding the Church we were speaking to Pastor Kathleen’s Snr. Pastor (Rev Fianko Wentumi) in Ghana who had been consistently encouraging us to start a Ministry because he could see what God has deposited in us and God’s calling on us. This was a confirmation of what other Ministers have told us before while in London, that they could see God’s hand on us especially on Pastor Kathleen and that He has plans for Ministry on us.

At this point, Pastor Kathleen was very convinced and ready though hesitant due to the fear of the unknown, but I was not ready and didn’t want to be convinced, though I was sure of God’s plan. More so after such a hard work and the ordeal and the sacrifices we went through before completing my Chartered Certified Accountants course, which I started in January 1995 and took me 7 solid years to complete. In fact, I didn’t want to be convinced and therefore resisted. I thought that was the reaping and a payback period to work and support the young family. Little did I know God had a different agenda for the family altogether.

Rev Fiako Wentumi (thank God for his life) encouraged me the more to accept the calling with great persistence and share his life testimony how he was in a similar situation as me before he accepted the calling. More so he narrated how brethren in US and Canada have also started Ministries that God has exalted Himself. As a result, I eventually gave in.

While fellowshipping at Deeper Life Church, we made our intentions known to the then Snr Pastor (Dr Kenny) about our calling and intention of starting a new Ministry. Therefore, when the time is ripe, we will move on.

Life was very hard

Life was very hard with three children and studying with no domestic assistant and just the two of us managing. Pastor Kathleen was still doing counselling on Saturdays, after putting the children to bed and staying over till midnight or sometimes after midnight.

Meanwhile, Pastor Geoffrey has still not found any reasonable work in the field. Financially, it was not easy at all. In fact, the Ford Mondeo car we were using could only open from the driver’s side. The other three doors won’t open so we use to pass through the boot by rolling the back seat down. Sometimes, people will be wondering if we were stealing something from the car or why could we not repair the fault and stop going through back of the car.

However, God was still adding to our number as a family making us six.

Pray Every Morning

Pastor Kathleen then deferred her programme to work full time to support the family. She ended up working at LBM Direct Marketing Middleton branch- Manchester. Before being aware she was turning the call centre to a worship centre, just to make the colleagues hit their target for the day. This came when the managers were asking what strategy she was using to get her sales so quickly. She said it was because she prays every morning and sings and so if they allow the team to do the same whether they believe in God or not they will hit their target. Every morning, she will print copies of songs they will sing such as ‘Oh happy day, as we come into your presence, He’s got the whole world in his hands’. The whole group will sing before actual work starts. This really brought a big impact at her work place and they eventually gave her a prayer room at her request.

Pray every morning

Revolution

We all want to change the world. But when you talk about destruction, don’t you know that you can count me out. Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright?

A good portfolio will get you an interview. A good attitude will get you a job.

We have a great opportunity for experienced photographers to join our team. Yes, we do need you to already own a camera. No, your iPhone camera won’t cut it. Go on, ‘Shoot’ us a message.

Surf's up!

There are 23 million estimated surfers around the world. The longest amount of time spent surfing one wave is 37 minutes. There are many other reasons you should get on board.

Your Journey

Desert Tiptoes Inc. is a company that set forth to boldly go where no other company has gone before, and to get as many individuals to walk barefoot across the Sahara desert, leaving beautiful and temporary foot marks behind. When we started, we had no clear vision as to why we wanted to get people to do that. Today, 20 years later, we are still kinda confused.

Do what I want, not what I say.

Writing, made simple.

Everyone can write, but not everyone is a writer. What makes the difference is the keen eye for detail and beauty.

If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
