Elder & Deaconess Mortoti Retire After 40 Years Of Meritorious Service

Elder Emmanuel Akakpo Mortoti and his wife, Deaconess Paulina Mortoti, were commended for their humility, giving spirit, affable nature, and sincere dedication to God and The Church of Pentecost during a retirement service organised in their honour by the Adamase District.

The commendation came in a sermon by Apostle Derek Mireku, the Agona Swedru Area Head.

Preaching on the topic ‘Well Done: God’s Marking Scheme,’ Apostle Mireku emphasised that God expects every Christian to be fruitful in handling some form of ministry, stressing the importance of every believer having something profitable to do for the Lord.

He assured that when our work is done, God, the righteous judge, will reward everyone.

Apostle Mireku used the occasion to praise Elder Mortoti and his wife for their dedication to their calling, encouraging them not to relent even after retirement.

Recalling the Mortoti family’s toils in the Lord’s vineyard during his six-year tenure as Area Head of Essam-Debiso, he commended them for advancing the kingdom of God.

In his remarks, the Area Head of Juaboso, Apostle Shadrach Asa-Otu, blessed the Lord for the lives of Elder and Deaconess Mortoti.

He highlighted their selfless giving to the church, humility in their interactions, and their accomplishment in ensuring their eleven children were well educated and trained in the Lord. Many of them have been ordained as officers of the church, serving in various Area and District Executive Committees.

He urged the gathering to emulate their example.

During a testimony, the Adamase District emphasised that the Mortotis served the Lord with their intellect, resources, and life. Elder Mortoti served as a District Executive Committee member for seventeen years, presiding from 1988 to 2005.

The couple donated two acres of cocoa farm to Agodzikrom Assembly, which they co-started. Elder Mortoti also opened nine Assemblies singlehandedly.

Deaconess Paulina Mortoti served as Assistant District Women’s Ministry Leader from 1990 to 1995 and has been a District Welfare Committee Member for over 20 years due to her benevolence in assisting the needy in the church.

The couple received over ten citations and an undisclosed amount of money from the District.

The ceremony was attended by a cross-section of pastors from the Juaboso Area and their wives, including Pastor George Osei-Asiedu of Dwenho District, who served with the Mortotis from 2015 to 2020 as the pioneer minister of the Adamase District.
