The entire pastorate of the Teshie-Nungua Area of The Church of Pentecost and their spouses have paid a 3-day visit to the Walewale Area as part of their weeklong road trip to the northern part of Ghana.
The visit, which is a brainchild of the Teshie-Nungua Area Head, Prophet James Osei Amaniampong, aimed at relieving ministers from the daily pressures in ministry work as well as enhancing fellowship among ministers and wives in both areas. Among other things, it was also an opportunity for the group to visit eminent traditional leaders, personalities and the various tourism sites within the Walewale Area.
The team, numbering 55 in all, arrived on Wednesday evening (November 1, 2017) and were warmly received by the Walewale Area Head, Evangelist Francis Yaw Adu, together with the pastorate, officers and members in the Walewale Zone.
Prophet Amaniampong, who doubles as an Executive Council Member of the Church, shared a brief word of exhortation with the teeming and expectant members, some of whom had waited for several hours in anticipation of their arrival.
The team officially began their visit by paying a courtesy call on the Overlord of the Mamprugu Traditional Area, Naa Bohagu Mahamin Abdulai Sheriga, at the “Nayiri” Palace in Nalerigu. The Mamprugu Chief was full of praise for The Church of Pentecost for the great impact it continues to make in his traditional area. He also wished them well and thanked them for making time to visit the palace.
From the palace, the group proceeded to the Mystical Wall of Nalerigu and the Nalerigu Dam site for sightseeing.
They later called on the Chief of Gambaga, Naaba Wuni Yahaya, at his palace in Gambaga, before heading to the Gambaga Witch Camp.
At the witch camp, Prophet Amaniampong assured the inmates that Jesus loves them and urged them to accept Him as their Lord and saviour.
As part of the trip, the team visited the Najon District Mission House and the Tomoni Assembly, which is one of the several churches in the Area serving under trees. They also held brief interactions with ministers and members of the Nakpanduri District at Nakpanduri to round up their visit on Friday, November 3. 2017.
