The Takoradi Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Yao Semenya Dogbe, has dedicated the Assakae District Mission House to the glory of God.
The building was dedicated on December 18, 2022. Present to assist the Area Head was District Minister, Pastor Ernest Perbi-Asare, and other ministers in the Area.
The District Secretary, Elder Saviour Obeng, in a brief history of the district, said the Assakae District was carved out of Apremdo District which was then headed by Pastor Pastor Philip K. Ackumey on August 16, 2019, with Pastor Ernest Perbi-Asare as the first District Minister.
He mentioned that an apartment was rented to accommodate the district minister and his family.
The then Area Head, Apostle Joseph Kwame Assabil (now retired), cut the sod for the project to commence on 10th October 2019, while the foundation stone was laid on December 23, 2020.
Speaking on the topic, “The Faithfulness of God,” Pastor Daniel Antwi-Adjei of Tanokrom District admonished Christians to always see God as faithful and trust Him with all their hearts.
With references from Lamentation 3:22-23, 2 Timothy 2:13, and Psalm 121, Pastor Antwi-Adjei said that God’s faithfulness will continue to be with all those who trust in Him.
“If you trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean on Him, He will surely accomplish all that concerns your life in due time,” he indicated.
He used the opportunity to challenge Christians to emulate faithfulness in their day-to-day affairs in advancing the ‘Possess the Nations’ agenda.
The Assakae District Minister, Pastor Ernest Perbi-Asare, commended the leadership of the Church for the financial, spiritual and moral support towards the successful completion of the project.
He specially thanked Elders Eric Obeng Agyemang (District Finance Chairman), Richard Osei Prempeh (District Executive Member), Samuel Afriyie Kumah (District Estate Chairman), Samuel Essoun Koomson (immediate past District Executive Member) as well as Deaconess Vivian Dora Koramah Marfo (District Assistant Women’s Leader) for their diverse financial support towards the project.
Present at the ceremony were Mrs Rosina Dogbe (wife of Takoradi Area Head), Nana Quasie Essem IV (Chief of Whindo), Mrs Sarah Perbi-Asare (wife of the district minister) as well as some ministers and their wives in the Takoradi Area.
