A Man Called By God: Changing Lives Through Faith And Compassion

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven.” (Matt. 5:16)

In a world filled with darkness, pain, suffering and despair, there are individuals who shine a light of hope and inspiration. Pastor Emmanuel Okoh Lartey of Ashanti Bekwai District of The Church of Pentecost is one of such persons. He truly inspires confidence and encourages virtue, making difference in the lives of many. With unwavering faith and compassion, he had dedicated his life to serving members and non-members of The Church of Pentecost in need, leaving a lasting impact on countless individuals and communities.

This man’s spiritual journey started in Cape Coast with deep sense of purpose and conviction. Individuals have testified of how the young and the old were determined to not let him leave the town. The calling of God on this man was a great prophecy. The divine mandate ignited a fire within him, driving him to pursue a path of selflessness and service. Through his tireless effort, Pastor Emmanuel Okoh Lartey has touched the lives of countless number of people from all walks of life. His broad infectious smile can warm the hearts of a grieving man. He has provided comfort to the grieving, hope to the hopeless and support to those struggling. His unwavering commitment to his faith has inspired others including myself to embrace their own spiritual journeys, finding solace and strength in times of need.

One of the most remarkable qualities is his ability to connect with people from diverse backgrounds. Whenever and wherever his name is mentioned people from different walks of lives sing his praises, people tell how he has in different ways helped and supported them emotionally, spiritually and physically. What prompted me to script down this article was how different women of God sang his praises when his name was mentioned during a conversation at a Ministers and Wives’ Conference in Bolga. I was not surprised at all knowing how he has changed many lives at Asante Bekwai since he arrived there as the district pastor.

The mere mention of his name in his absence ignites a conversation of his selflessness, service and kindness. He is always smiling, easily approachable, and embraces everyone. When he mounts the podium to preach or pray, the power of God is felt, and you can be sure to see him sweating even with fans on. He pours himself out and serves the members selflessly; he is indeed a firebrand. He listens with empathy, offers guidance with humility and provides a shoulder to cry on when needed. His love for humanity is palpable in every interaction with him. His selflessness, compassion, love and care have created a ripple effect of love and kindness inspiring others to follow his footsteps.

In a world that often seems dark and divided, Pastor Emmanuel Okoh Lartey stands as a beacon of hope, a ray of sunshine, a breath of fresh air and a reminder that the world still has beautiful people. His life is a testament to the life of a great transformer reminding us that we all have the capacity to make a difference in the lives of others.

Finally, dear Christian brothers and sisters, it is possible to transform our spheres, make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities just as our Pastor Emmanuel Okoh Lartey  is doing. It is my prayer that this article would inspire others to learn from and emulate the character of this great man of God to transform their spheres.
