Apostle Raymond Odei Ends Missionary Visit To Oman

The National Head of The Church of Pentecost (CoP) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), who also serves as the Regional Coordinating Committee (RCC) Coordinator for the Middle East and Gulf Regions of the Church, Apostle Raymond Odei, has concluded a five-day working visit to Oman.

Apostle Raymond Odei, accompanied by his wife, Mrs. Martha Odei, arrived in Oman, Muscat, on January 14, 2024, to assess the progress of the church, which was planted over a year ago with only four souls won from the evangelistic efforts of Apostle Samuel Appiah (Of blessed memory).

As part of their historic visit, Apostle Raymond Odei shared the word of God on Wednesday during the midweek prayer session.

Speaking on the topic, “A People of God Transforming their World Through Prayer,” based on scriptures such as 1 Peter 2:9, Jeremiah 29:12, and 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Apostle Raymond Odei emphasised the significance of prayer in the life of a believer, urging believers to make prayer not just an occasional activity but a lifestyle, a daily affair and based on the word of God.

“Prayer releases anointing, prayer opens heaven, so we must make prayer a priority and our daily sustenance,” he advised, highlighting that prayer lies at the heart of every vibrant and fruitful ministry.

On the last day of their visit, the couple joined the Church for the climax of its officers’ retreat, known as “Apostolisation.”

Preaching on the 2024 Theme of the Church, “A People of God Unleashed to Transform their World,” with 1 Peter 2:9, Acts 1:8, and Ephesians 3:10 as scripture references, Apostle Odei elaborated on the theme, which marks the first of the second phase of the “Possessing the Nations” agenda.

He stated that the theme serves as the foundation for mobilising and unleashing the whole Church to transform their world.

According to him, the theme is a call to challenge every member to see themselves as a channel through which God’s grace will flow in blessing to humanity.

He urged the church to be intentional in sending out members to every sphere of society to transform it.

During their visit, the couple also shared fellowship with some members, allowing them to connect beyond the pulpit.

They interacted with members to understand their general well-being and encouraged them to remain firm in their Christian faith while also advising them to take their work seriously.

Concluding the visit, Apostle and Mrs. Odei, along with the Resident Missionary, Overseer Stephen Akorabo, and his wife, Mrs. Adelaide Akorabo, undertook an evangelism outreach at the City Centre and shopping mall in Oman on Wednesday, January 17, 2024.

Apostle and Mrs. Odei left the shores of Oman on January 19, 2024, following the Friday morning service.
