The Evangelism Director of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, today, led a delegation of ministers of the Church to pay a courtesy call on the Chief of Sawla (Sawlawura), Abdullai Iddrisu, at his palace.
The visit was to formally greet the Sawla Chief and to invite him and his elders to the upcoming mega crusade, dubbed: “Sawla For Christ,” set to take place at the Modern Ghana Park, Sawla later in the evening.
Among the delegation were Apostle James Asare (Kasoa Area Head), Pastor David Amankwaa (Sawla Area Head), Elder Dr. Ubor Tossan Konja VI (Paramount Chief, Kpassa Traditional Area), and some National Executive Committee members of the Evangelism Ministry.
They were warmly received by the Sawlawura, who also had in his company other chiefs, namely; John Kipo (Chief of Bandodi), Albert Iddisah (Chief of Bojibito), Afitiri (Chief of Fashi), Awudu Jebuni (Chief of Guruyiri) and Dramani (Chief of Bodi).
Addressing the Chief and his entourage, the Evangelism Ministry Director said that it is a common practice of The Church of Pentecost to move from nation to nation, as well as community to community, heralding the gospel message of Jesus Christ.
He said that wherever the gospel message is received, the blessing of the Lord rests on the land and transforms the lives of its inhabitants.
He, therefore, assured the Chief of a special visitation of the Lord in the land during and after the mega crusade.
“This event will be historic and it shall be said that after this crusade, the communities within the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district have been transformed for the better,” he said.
Elder Dr. Ubor Tossan Konja VI also took the opportunity to share a testimony of his encounter with Christ and how He saved him from the terror of death that was hanging around the Kpassa paramountcy stool at the time of his enstoolment.
According to him, all his predecessors, including his own biological father, were unable to last more than five years on the throne.
“My father was a very powerful sorcerer, yet with all his powers, he could only last four years on the throne. However, because I gave my life to Jesus, He has preserved my kingship since my enstoolment in 2011,” he said.
The Kpassa Paramount Chief said that, as a result of this, he had made it his lifelong duty to encourage all other Chiefs to surrender their lives to Christ because in Him is life, glory and honour.
“If I was not sure of this, I would not have left my throne and travelled all the way to this place to share this with you as colleague chiefs,” he added.
In response, the Chief was very grateful for the visit and the message they had shared with him.
“Indeed, I consider myself blessed today, because some people have served many years as chiefs and have never had the privilege of hearing such a message,” he said.
He also wished the team well and expressed his optimism that the lives of all his subjects in Sawla and its environs would be positively impacted by the event.
To climax the visit, the Sawla Area Head, on behalf of the team, presented a box of Bible, three boxes of drinks, seven packs of bottled water and a cash donation to the Chief.
The meeting, which was held under a pleasant atmosphere, came to a close after Apostle Dr Jimmy Markin had said a word of prayer for the Chief and his elders.
The “Sawla For Christ” crusade, which is under the theme: “In The Name Of Jesus” (Acts 3:6), is scheduled to take place from Tuesday, March 15 to Friday, March 18, 2022, with Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, Apostle James Asare and Pastor David Amankwaa as the main speakers for the event.
Other speakers include Elder Evans Ayim (Deputy Director, Evangelism Ministry), Elder Dr. Ken. Aboah (NEC Member, Evangelism Ministry), Elder Seth Peasah (NEC Member, Evangelism Ministry), and Elder Dr. Ubor Tossan Konja VI.
