Ada-Foah District Receives New Outboard Motor Boat

The Tema Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Ofei Ankra-Badu, dedicated a new boat with an outboard motor for the Ada-Foah District in a ceremony held on March 17, 2023.

The 30-seater capacity fiber boat was purchased for GHC73,000.00 to improve accessibility to Assemblies and communities on the 36 islands in the Black Volta estuary.

The former Presiding Elder of Alorkpem Assembly, Elder Thomas Shiamatey, explained that the District had planned to purchase a boat in 2007 to ease movement, but they had to rely on public boat transport with challenges such as overloading and delays in movement.

Due to the movement of people from Ada-Foah because of the sea taking over some communities, the Church’s attempt to purchase a boat ended in a fiasco.

However, Elder Thomas Shiamatey engaged his primary schoolmate, Sister Paulina Abayateye, who now resides in the United States. With the help of her District Minister, Pastor Frank Agyemang, she organised her friends in Annandale Assembly to contribute $5,000 to support the acquisition of the boat, which amounted to GHC 73,000.00 when converted.

Construction of the boat began and was completed on March 6, 2023.

The boat, which is equipped with an outboard machine, life jackets, and a shed for shelter from the rain, was commissioned by Apostle Emmanuel Ofei Ankra-Badu and Pastor Raymond Dzanado, the Ada-Foah District Minister.

The boat’s dedication was attended by all ministers in the Tema Area and some officers and members in Ada-Foah District.

Pastor Raymond Dzanado expressed his appreciation to Apostle Amoako, the National Head of the USA, his National Executive Committee members, and the members of Annandale Assembly for their generosity.

With the boat, the District will be able to increase their evangelism activities on the islands in their catchment areas.

After the dedication of the boat, Apostle Ankra-Badu and the pastors in the Area went on a short excursion to Treasure Island, one of the popular beach resorts on the other side of the River Volta, cruising on the new boat.
