Apostle Noble-Atsu Bids Farewell To Late Wife

Apostle Daniel K. Noble-Atsu (Retired), a former Executive Council Member of The Church of Pentecost, paid a heartfelt tribute to his late wife, Mrs. Fidelia Noble-Atsu, during a memorial service held at the Nsakina School Park today, expressing, “Apart from my salvation, [my wife] was the best thing that ever happened to me!”

In a moving eulogy at the event, the retired minister highlighted his late wife’s admirable qualities, describing her as kindhearted, sincere, honest, forthright, diligent, and industrious.

He commended her for taking a chance on him by accepting to be his wife when he had not yet gained recognition or significance.

“I got married to this beautiful, thoughtful, industrious, very focused, and strong-willed lady when I was a nobody. It was just by pure grace that she agreed to marry a nonentity,” he said.

He also acknowledged his late wife’s financial acumen and how her industrious nature proved to be very beneficial during their 29-year ministerial service.

Apostle Noble-Atsu also praised his late wife’s pivotal role in providing godly training for their children.

Flanked by relatives and loved ones, Apostle Atsu (Rtd.) was overwhelmed with sadness as he sorrowfully filed past his dear wife’s lifeless remains to bid her a final farewell.

He expressed deep grief at her loss but expressed belief that he will one day meet her again at the glorious heavenly reunion.

The event, chaired by the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, received high patronage, with the attendance of numerous dignitaries within and outside the country.

They included some Executive Council Members, namely, Apostle Emmanuel Agyemang Bekoe (International Missions Director), Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, Apostle Yaw Adjei-Kwarteng, Apostle Samuel Osei Asante, Apostle Isaac Nii Kotei Djani, Apostle Mike Etrue, Apostle Dr. Dela Quampah, Apostle Sylvester Arhin, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, Apostle Vincent Anane Denteh, and Apostle Dieudonne Nuekpe.

Apostle Professor Opoku Onyinah Rtd. (Immediate-Past Chairman), Apostle Rigwell Ato Addison Rtd. (Former General Secretary), Apostle Dr. Alfred Koduah Rtd. (Former General Secretary), Apostle Lawson Samuel (President of The Church of Pentecost-Togo International) were also present to support and mourn with the bereaved family.

The Kasoa Area Head, Apostle James Kwabena Asare, delivered a sermon on “The Importance of Salvation,” emphasising the eternal significance of salvation for the soul. He urged those present to prioritise salvation, as the soul’s eternal fate transcends the transient nature of the body.

In his sermon, Apostle James Asare explained that just as Mrs. Fidelia Noble-Atsu has gone to be with the Lord, everyone is bound to suffer the same fate.

He, however, noted that the most important thing one must do before this eventuality is to ensure the salvation of the soul.

“We can have all, but we should never fail to save our soul,” he emphasised.

He explained that salvation for the soul is the permanent deliverance from sin and its consequences by faith through Christ.

He said that the salvation of the soul is very important not only to mankind but to God Himself, as it is His will that everyone enjoys an eternal life of bliss.

He said that this is so important to God that He personally had to pay the price for sin to ensure its facilitation.

The Kasoa Area Head further noted that the salvation of the soul is important because the soul is priceless. According to him, nothing else in this world is as valuable as the soul because it is eternal.

Another reason why salvation of the soul is important, he mentioned, is because it is the soul, not the body, that will face eternal judgment.

He cautioned all present who are yet to save their soul by surrendering their life to Christ to do so before the day of reckoning when there shall be a separation between the soul and body.

“No matter how beautiful the body is, one day the soul will be separated from the body, and the soul will be left to travel alone,” he said.

During the event, children of the late Mrs. Fidelia Noble-Atsu paid tribute to her praising her motherly virtues. The General Council of The Church of Pentecost also paid tribute to the late minister’s wife, acknowledging her significant impact during their time in full-time ministry of the Church.

Among the mammoth gathering of National Heads, Ministry Directors, Area Heads, Church members, relatives, friends, and other sympathisers were Mrs. Juliana Korkor Obuobi (Wife of the General Secretary), Mrs. Deborah Agyemang Bekoe (Wife of the IMD) and Mrs. Grace Opoku Onyinah (Wife of the immediate-past Chairman).

Mrs. Fidelia Noble-Atsu, aged 75, is survived by a husband, three biological children, one adopted child, and 11 grandchildren.

May her soul rest in peace.
