Date: December 24, 2016
24th December comes with a special sense of excitement because it is the day that ushers us into Christmas. However, for members of The Church of Pentecost, we have one more reason to be excited about this day, because it is also the day we celebrate the life of the indefatigable General Secretary of our great Church, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi.
“GS”, as we affectionately like to call him, is an outstanding minister of the Gospel and a passionate soul winner who remains untiring, determined, persistent, unrelenting, and unfaltering in his pursuit of excellence in ministry and family life.
For Staff of the Headquarters who are privileged to observe him more closely, he is a model of humility not only in the exhortations and counsel he offers during Staff Morning Devotions, but also in practice.
As the Chief Scribe of a Church spread across 91 countries around the globe, it is quite predictable that he would always have a lot on his plate on a daily basis, but that has never stopped him from making time for those around him; even to the extent of responding to individual and group WhatsApp messages of church members.
Papa, your love for the Lord and passion for His work is very admirable. We are therefore grateful to God Almighty for His gift to the Church, the Christian fraternity, the country and the world at large.
On this day of your 52nd birthday, it is our prayer that God would continue to sustain the life in you and grant you the grace, strength and wisdom to excel in your stewardship.
On behalf of all members of The Church of Pentecost across the world, we wish you a memorable birthday.
Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi
