(AIM) Adonai International Ministries started as an Evangelistic Ministry on the 18th of July 1980, under the name End-time Ministry Incorporated, in an uncompleted building of the Tema North Presby Church Community 4 –Tema (now Trinity Presby Church). Meetings days were on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Members of this ministry were mainly students from all the various second cycle schools in Ghana in those days. Since all members of the ministry were students, meetings were held during vacations and brought to a halt when schools reopened. This went on for some time until some students completed school and came home, either awaiting results or preparing to rewrite their exams, which was termed “Housing Corporation”. From this time on meetings were held throughout the year. The Ministry adopted Fridays as its day of fasting; we called every Friday an end time Friday. Every member fasted and prayed privately and then at 3:00pm we meet at the Assemblies of God church (community 4) for our prayer meetings. The Lord visited us greatly and these days cannot be forgotten in our history. In 1981, the ministry had its first major trial when two of our sisters and a brother had an accident. We lost one of the sisters, the brother suffered severe injuries and the other sister had one of her legs amputated. This was a very devastating experience for the ministry but the Lord was still on our side. The various activities of this ministry became a catalyst in motivating a lot of young Christians to love the Lord, know the Lord, study God’s word, evangelise and build strong prayer lives. The ministry was non-denominational so on Sunday’s members went to their various orthodox, Pentecostal and charismatic churches within the Tema and Accra Metropolis for church services.
