The representative of the Chief of Asankrangwa, Nana Kwesi Addae, expressed his appreciation to the pastors and the chiefs who accompanied the Evangelism Ministry team. He commended The Church of Pentecost for its contribution to the development of the town and the country at large.
He said that the church is well-known for its soul-winning and social service activities. He also praised the leadership of the church for supporting local churches to build their own structures.

The sub-chiefs also spoke highly of The Church of Pentecost and its leadership. They said that the church has grown rapidly because of its adherence to the fear of God and truth.
The chiefs believe that the crusade would bring blessings to the town and its people and help reduce social vices such as prostitution, gambling, and road accidents, which are prevalent in the area.
Apostle Dr Jimmy Markin thanked the Chief and his elders for their warm reception and hospitality. He said that the team was sent by God to spread the good news of salvation to the people.
