Father Accepts Christ At Daughter's Wedding

Date: August 17, 2017

The Lord Jesus Christ is really in the saving business as He continuous to snatch the perishing from hell fire.

His saving power was once again manifested in an amazing twist of events at the Mt Olive Assembly in the Juaso District of The Church of Pentecost during a wedding feast on Saturday, June 10, 2017.

The father of the bride, Mr. Ernest Kwadwo Ntiri, who was overwhelmed by the love exhibited by the Church throughout the marriage rites of his daughter who is a member of The Church of Pentecost, decided to give his life to Christ and also worship with the Church for the rest of his life. Although his wife, Mrs Esther Owusua, is a deaconess at the Formeso Assembly of the Church, Mr. Ntiri had never joined them to church.

When he was called upon to present his daughter to the groom to formally seal off the marriage rite, Mr. Ntiri agreed to be led to Christ by the minister who was conducting the service, Pastor Paul Asante of Asankare District before undertaking that responsibility. He demonstrated his eagerness to join the Church by agreeing to be baptised the following day and further worship with the Formeso District of the Church.

The wedding ceremony happened between his daughter, Ms Mercy Somuah Ntiri, and the first son of the Juaso District Pastor, Deacon Corporal Solomon Akomeah, of the Special Weapons and Tactics Unit of the Ghana Police Service, Upper West Regional Command.

In a sermon, the District Minister for Kabanye in the Wa Area, where the groom worships, Pastor Joseph Yaw Ntiamoah, advised the couple to eschew doubts and other petty issues that can mar the beauty of their marriage.

Pastor Ntiamoah who was speaking on the theme, “Catch The Little Foxes” based on Songs of Songs 2:15, explained that little foxes in marriages include all the minor issues that couples refuse to address which eventually become problems that could lead to divorce.

He urged them to build their marriage on trust, love, prayer and constant communication, whilst avoiding misunderstanding, unforgiving, secrecy and dictatorship.

Although the bride, Mrs Mercy Akomeah was elated about the wedding, she was more grateful to Jesus for finally revealing His salvation to her father.

The marriage ceremony chaired by the Konongo Area Head, Apostle F. K. Andoh, was witnessed by a number of ministers in the Church.
