The Teshie-Nungua Area (TNA) of The Church of Pentecost has promised to put up a new Mission House for the Najong District in the Walewale Area. The Area has also donated GH₵ 40,000 to the District to build a new place of worship for the Tomoni Assembly
This was revealed by the Teshie Nungua Area Head, Prophet James Osei Amaniampong, on Thursday, November 2, 2017, at a church service in Najong as part of a three-day visit of the Teshie-Nungua Area pastorate and wives to Walewale Area.
Prophet Amaniampong, who also doubles an Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, made these donations to help address an urgent need for a place of accommodation for the District Minister, Overseer Kojo Aboagye, and family as well as a decent place of worship for the Tomoni Assembly.
According to the history of the building, the main structure of the Najong District Mission House was constructed with sand and stones acquired locally within the community without cement blocks, concrete pillars and columns.
As a result, the state of the building has deteriorated over the years with portions near collapse and the roof badly leaking. Overseer Kojo Aboagye recounted the ordeal his family goes through whenever it rains in the community.
Prophet Amaniampong, touched by their plight, announced a donation of new District Manse to be funded by Teshie-Nungua Area to the excitement of the teeming members, officers and the Aboagye family.
The Tomoni Assembly, an assembly that fellowships under a tree, has received a donation of GH₵ 40,000 to put up a prototype Community-Based Church Building (CBCB).
The 65-member local assembly is currently presided over by Mrs Irene Aboagye, wife of the District Minister. Tomoni Assembly has been holding services under a tree for more than five years after their mud-church building was struck down by a heavy rainstorm.
They were full of appreciation to the Area Head and pastorate of Teshie-Nungua for the generous donation.
Immediately after the donation for the church building was announced, Mr Duut Konlanbik, a member of the Tomoni Assembly, voluntarily donated his parcel of land for the building.
