Members of the Foso Town District in the Assin Foso Area of The Church of Pentecost were in a joyous mood as they witnessed the christening and dedication of a set of twins of
Elder Ebenezer Takyi Danquah and his wife, Esther, who had been childless after 14 years of marriage.
The well-patronised and colourful service took place at the Foso Town Assembly church auditorium on March 6, 2023.
Sharing their testimony at the event, the couple said they had resigned to their fate, having exhausted all medical alternatives, only for God to surprise them with the set of twins.
“We have endured taunting and name calling from people from all walks of life. Some saw us as a reproach, but we continued to trust the Lord for a miracle, ” Elder Takyi Danquah recounted.
Exhorting the gathering on the topic “Repositioning our Perception about Children to Maximise their Potentials,” the Assin Foso Area Head, Apostle Frederick Kwaku Andoh, said that often times parents see children as a burden and a nuisance.
Using the story of Moses in Exodus 2:1-10, he said the parents of Moses tried all their possible best to hide him in order not to face the same fate the other Jewish children in Egypt.
He explained that Moses’ mother went to this extreme length to save her son because she saw him as a special child.
“How we treat our children is highly dependent on our perception of them. We should understand that God sees all children as his treasures and heritage (Psalm 127:3) and so we must see them as such too.
“For this reason, be diligent in bringing them up your children in the fear of God for them to attain their full potentials,” he charged.
The children were christened Ekow Nyametease and Ekow Nyamedome Takyi Danquah.
The programme had in attendance the Assin Foso Area pastorate and their wives as well as some past ministers of the Foso Town District and their spouses.
