A 5-day special outreach organised by the Home and Urban Missions (HUM) Ministers and their wives have won 697 souls for Christ.
The outreach, held in two administrative Areas of The Church of Pentecost in the Western Region – Tarkwa and Asankrangwa, led to 189 water baptisms and 17 Holy Spirit baptisms.
Other ministers of the church and members of the Nation Possessors in the two Areas supported the event.
The outreach was aimed at reaching out to HUM-targeted groups such as Expatriates, African Migrants, Urban Poor and Marginalised such as street dwellers, drug addicts, sex workers, head potters, hawkers and Northerners living in the South as well as Unreached People Groups such as Mossi, Fulanis, Kotokoli, Zarma, Walla, Hausa, amongst others.
The activities took place in communities under Wassa Benso, Waasa Nkran, Wassa Huniso, Wassa Simpa, Wassa Dunkwa, Aboi Nkwanta, Asankrangwa, Asankrangwa Newtown, Samreboi, Aboi Fie and Nyamebekyere districts. The activities embarked on during the outreach included house-to-house evangelism, dawn broadcasting, market evangelism, ghetto and film evangelism. The team also used the opportunity to visit some ‘galamsey’ sites to proclaim the gospel to the miners, which included some Chinese.
At the end of the five-day outreach, a cell meeting was opened for commercial sex workers with 25 members, a Restoration Centre was opened at Asankrangwa, a HUM Dagaati Assembly was opened at Benso-Subriso in the Tarkwa Area, while a Kusasi Assembly is earmarked to be opened at Wassa Dunkwa in Asankrangwa Area, HUM Assembly at Oforikrom and HUM Cell at Benda Nsuoakyi in Aboifie District.
Others include opening a Restoration Centre and Children’s Club at Tigarikrom and HUM Cell at Tigari Zongo in Nyamebekyere District.
Apostle Emmanuel Agyei Kwafo, the National HUM Coordinator, appreciated the Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, and the Executive Council Members for their tremendous support of the ministry. He also expressed his profound gratitude to the Area Heads of Tarkwa and Asankrangwa, Apostles Dr Daniel Okyere Walker and Daniel Dekpor, respectively, and the host pastors and their wives for accepting and supporting the team.
