Shownotes

My guest this week is Reverend Rita Koranteng (Mama Rita) who currently lives in Kumasi, Ghana. She started her career as a secretary working for the Ghana Denmark Association. In 2001, she attended Central University College and earned her degree in Theology. She was ordained as a minister in 2014. She got married and was blessed with a ministry in Accra, Ghana.

In 2018, she run an online radio program dubbed "Restoration Hour" for two years and in 2019, she she moved from Accra to Kumasi and established a new church. She also continued her entrepreneurship by opening new businesses including a bakery, processing cereals and baby foods to meet the needs of her community.

Her husband served her with divorce papers after 16 years of marriage on the grounds that they did not have children together even though she has a biological daughter and an adopted son.

Mama Rita is currently the general overseer of Glory Bound Ministry, founder of women in ministry evangelism group, executive member of "Feast of Esther" women's group and CEO of Mama's Food.

Our conversation covered, some painful realities women face in Ghana, and we focused on women's empowerment, and the benefits of:

  • Educating women
  • Being a channel of blessings to others
  • Using the gift of 24-hours
  • Being industrious, knowledgeable and bringing our unique gifts out to the world to serve our respective communities.

As always, your thoughts and comments are welcome.
