Andoe District Retires 10 Gallant Officers

The Andoe District in the Assin Foso Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised a retirement service for 10 officers who have served the church meritoriously for various years.

The service took place recently at the  Andoe Central Assembly auditorium under the leadership of the District Minister, Pastor Daniel Kwame Darko.

The retired officers and their number of years of service are as follows: Elder Williams A. Baragbor, 43 years; Elder John Gyasi, 41 years; Elder Emmanuel Tetteh Kwaw, 38 years, and Elder George Sarpong Amoah, 36 years.

The rest were Deaconess Mary Antobam, 52 years; Deaconess Grace Afedzie, 46 years; Deaconess Paulina Dede, 36 years; Deaconess Comfort Sackey, 36 years; Deaconess Georgina  Ofori, 35 years, and Deaconess Victoria Dede, 34 years.

Speaking on the topic, “Faith to Possess the Nations,”  with Bible texts from Romans 10:17; 10:9 and 1 Corinthians 13:13, the Assin Nsuta District Minister, Pastor Freeman K. Ofori-Siaw, noted that faith is something man has not seen yet believes that it exists.

He added that it is through faith that believers are saved, because faith is the purchasing power for buying spiritual things. Through faith, he said, believers overcome all challenges that come their way.

“Whoever comes to the Lord to serve Him must believe that He exists and He is the ultimate and master rewarder. Without faith, no servant can go far with the Lord and serve Him wholeheartedly,” he stressed.

Pastor Daniel Kwame Darko applauded the retirees for their selfless and dedicated services to God and humanity. He challenged the youth to follow in the footsteps of the retirees to enable them also serve their generations without grumbling.

“Today, you are celebrating your leaders for their hard work which has brought the church to this level. What are you doing to help expand the Kingdom of God to enable others celebrate you when you also retire from active service when your time comes?” he quizzed.

Each of the retirees was given a certificate of service signed by the Assin Foso Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Frederick Kwaku Andoh. They also received some handsome packages.
