The ministers and wives of the Home and Urban Missions (HUM) of The Church of Pentecost are embarking on a five-day outreach as part of its vision to make Christ known to all people.
The outreach is scheduled to take place in the Tarkwa and Asankragwa Areas from Tuesday, September 26, to Saturday, September 30, 2023.
During an orientation and prayer session held at the Dunkwa-on-Offin Central Assembly church auditorium, the National HUM Coordinator, Apostle Emmanuel Agyei Kwafo, expressed his profound appreciation to the HUM ministers and wives as well as some volunteers who have joined the team for accepting to be part of the outreach.
Apostle Kwafo, in explaining the purpose for the exercise, mentioned that those who have not accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour live in danger and must be snatched from hellfire.
He added that one does not rescue people who are in comfort but instead those in danger, and that every rescuer’s life is in danger in every mission, but the power of God is always available to lead them.
He emphasised that believers are there to save the lost because they have been saved by God.
Apostle Kwafo, therefore, encouraged participants to use this opportunity to explain the HUM vision to the church populace.
“Though HUM is known by many, some still find it difficult to understand the concept and its duties, therefore, this mission is a way to practically teach the people how to do it and inject the passion of HUM into the people at the grassroots who will be well-discipled for the ministry,” he said.
Using Mark 16:15-20 in his exhortation, he highlighted that all believers have been called to go into all nations to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, that is, the birth, life, ministry, death, resurrection, ascension, and the second coming of Christ.
He mentioned that all those who believe and are baptised will be saved.
He encouraged the participants to ensure that all those who believe the gospel must be baptised, adding that signs and wonders accompany all those who believe in the power of God.
The HUM Coordinator challenged the team members to activate their faith and lay their hands on the sick, and they will surely recover.
Concluding his message, Apostle Kwafo stressed that just as the Lord accompanied His message with signs and wonders when the disciples went into the world, in the same way, God will prove Himself when the Word is proclaimed to the lost.
The team then visited the Dunkwa Area Head, Apostle Dr. Onyinah Gyamfi, and his wife, Mrs. Martha Gyamfi, where he said a prayer for them and wished them well in the outreach.
