One of the unpleasant and disturbing situations one can ever encounter in life is to have married for ten years without the gift of a child and that was exactly the situation of Elder Benjamin Ebenezer Asamoah and his wife, Mrs Esther Asamoah of Grace Assembly in the Yennyawoso District of The Church of Pentecost until God intervened by blessing them with a son.
Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS at the naming and dedication ceremony of the child, which was officiated by the District Minister, Pastor Charles Oduro, on Sunday, September 20, 2020, the couple revealed that the state of childlessness took them to many hospitals but to no avail.
Elder Asamoah said that “when all human efforts to conceive proved futile, we resorted to prayer and trusted God for a miracle. One day my wife and I went to the District Pastor, informed him of our plight and beseeched him for prayer support which he gladly obliged. He encouraged us to bank our hope on God and subsequently prayed fervently for us. With continuous prayers, the Lord has glorified Himself by gifting us with a son.”
Sharing their testimony, the elated couple expressed their gratitude to the Almighty God for His eventual blessings and encouraged all those who are in such situations to keep trusting God for His intervention at the appointed season.
Present at the ceremony was Pastor Anthony Kwesi Mensah, (Resident Minister, PIWC – New Tafo), among others.
