A well-attended service has been organised in Assin Breku in the Assin Foso Area of The Church of Pentecost to dedicate the Assin Breku District Mission house.
The dedication service, which was held on Sunday, July 23, 2017, was officiated by the Assin Foso Area Head, Prophet E. K Appiah, and assisted by Pastor Ernest Ohene Adu, the District Minister for Assin Breku. Also present at the service were the area pastorate, Mrs. Janet Appiah (wife of the Area Head) and the queen mother of Assin Breku.
The Assin Breku District was carved out of Assin Akonfudi District in 2013, with Pastor Ernest Ohene Adu as the first District Minister. The building, which sits on four plots of land, took approximately three and a half years to complete. A brief historical background of the project revealed that the owners of the land, Mr. And Mrs. Asare, donated one additional plot after the District had bought three from them.
The total cost of the project is estimated to be GH¢182,025.98. Funds were drawn mainly from Headquarters grants, Area Infrastructural Development Fund (AIDF), Area Development Fund (ADF), District Offerings and donations from benevolent individuals.
Notable individual contributors towards the building include Deacon Charles Opoku of Tarkwa, who provided 50 bags of cement and also paid for all sliding windows on the building including its installation. Elder Fred Ohene Nyanko of Madina District donated a water-pumping machine to supply water to the house for domestic use. Elder Daniel Ankomah Mends of Foso Station District also bought two electricity poles to extend electricity from the main grid to the mission house.
In a sermon preached on the topic, “Things That Matter In Our Walk With God”, Pastor Brown Boakye Yiadom of Assin Nyankomase read from 2Timothy 1: 3-5 and pointed out intercession, serving God, and having a clear conscience as necessary for believers.
According to Pastor Brown, the early fathers committed themselves to intercession, not only for themselves but also for the church and its leadership. He admonished the gathering that instead of complaining about happenings or occurrences in the church they should rather intercede for the church for the Lord’s glory to be seen.
He also indicated that “since every authority is given to men by God, we need to serve under them with all respect and obedience”. He explained that having a clear conscience is a sign of having a pure heart and practicing one’s faith without any hypocrisy.
Giving his concluding remarks at the end of the service, Prophet E. K Appiah Appiah admonished the gathering to keep praying for the leadership of the church since by so doing they become part of the decision making of the Church.
