How We Started
It all began back in 2015!
There was a young gentleman who had injured his spine at work, ruptured L4 and L5 and he was declared ‘permanently partially disabled’. Even though surgical intervention was the only way to reduce his pain and suffering, he was doomed to live with mild chronic pain for the rest of his life. He had no hope but to seek a divine intervention. By committing his soul faithfully to the Almighty, by praying and crying out to the Lord, he was miraculously healed by the Resurrection power of Jesus Christ! Since then, his life transformed as he developed a connection with GOD through FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE.
It was 2019, Sunday morning!
His heart filled with devotion for Christ, he woke up and started getting ready for the Sunday church service; when his wife returned from work where she took care of the physically challenged in a care facility. She started preparing to attend the service as well. To their astonishment, they could hear their two-year old son, whose speech was not well-developed, uttering “JESUS” and that’s when they could sense the room, filled with a strong presence of Lord. His wife marked that it was the same room where her husband was touched by the Resurrection power of Jesus!
The next day, at around 5:30 am, he left for work. After a few hours at around 10:30 am, his wife called to inform him that she was buying a ticket for him to GHANA, Accra. This was when he realized that it was the Lord’s presence which moved her to buy a ticket! When he was home, she had already bought the ticket. Our GOD is a GOD of order so he decided to pray about the journey and the LORD put this bible verse; the whole chapter of James 1 particularly verse 27 which states Religion that is pure and undefiled before GOD ,the FATHER, is this to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
On his arrival to Ghana, with the support of his Pastor and his wife, in coalition with two Presbyterian churches they showed acts of love to the widows and the less privileged in the neighborhood, by offering them food and clothing. Later, they went to a village close by and visited both the elderly and widows and benefited distributed food and clothes with other volunteers.
This gentleman is none other than myself, who by the grace of God has found this organization “Father of Lights” where I join hands with my team to perform acts of LOVE all over the world for the needy! Each day, I pray to the good Lord to shower his blessings and confer his abundant Grace upon each one of us.
JAMES 1:17″ Every good gift and Every perfect gift is from Above , coming down from the Father of Lights, with whom there is no variation or shadows due to change.”
How we differ
The term “Father of (heavenly) Lights” is mentioned in the scripture in James 1:17 which refers to God, who is the Creator of all things! He purposed to illuminate our spiritual understanding through His written word, so that it would be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path – with the help of His Holy Spirit, who would guide us and lead us into the Truth!
The incarnate of God, Jesus Christ is our core in everything! Our organization solely rests upon the fruits of love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness and faithfulness. We work to make this world a better place to live in for each living creation of God. Some of our works include rebuilding nations after massive disasters, providing employment opportunities; thus, empowering people and promoting education for everyone.
We recognize that building and improving people’s lives takes place on a local level and so we set our goals to start from the smallest of villages and show our acts of love to them.
“Father of Lights” is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization. We are governed by our Bylaws exclusively for charitable purposes, to strengthen the nonprofit sector in Utah. For additional information on IRS form 990 and other related documents can contact us personally.
