When I met Wisdom his warmth and passion stood out immediately. He is such a caring and hard working individual. He has done a great job of communicating with Mary and I about our up coming trip to Asikuma, Ghana. I take great comfort in the fact that Wisdom will be working side by side with us to help improve the education experience and the lives of the children in Asikuma. He is a great person to have on our journey and I know we, both Mary and I, look forward to working with such an extraordinary man.
As I am sure you can tell Mary and I have already developed strong bonds with the individuals in Ghana who we will be working with, but we want you to get to know some of them too! We are going to be blogging about some of the incredible people that we have the pleasure of working with!
Wisdom Kojo Agbana has been a part of the Kingdom Cares International team for over 2 years and serves as our Operations Coordinator in Ghana. He was born in Asikuma and after finishing high school, pursued training in graphic design. Wisdom’s passion for his work allowed for many years of success in this industry.
A mutual friend in Ghana connected Kingdom Cares International (KCI) with Wisdom, which lead to relationships being built and them working with him on various projects. Simultaneously, God began a great work in his heart. “As I heard Kingdom Cares International’s mission of Isaiah 1:17, tears dropped down my face”, said Wisdom. He began by caring for the medical needs of adults and children with HIV in Asikuma and would spend hours at the hospital making sure they had all the right medication. Wisdom has a special passion for the children; he loves when they are around him and feels like he can be a voice that advocates for them.
KCIs relationship with Wisdom grew and so did their vision for what God was calling them to do in Asikuma. As the vision for building a mission center developed, Wisdom simply asked what he could do to support this great vision. Thereafter, he began taking courses on NGO operations and project management. Wisdom worked to sell KCIs vision to chiefs and other stakeholders in Asikuma, manage the construction of the mission center all the way to its completion, and ensure that the orphans they were already caring for had everything they needed. According to Wisdom, “It brings me great joy when people come to me and I am able to meet their physical needs and share the gospel with them.
