The annual fasting and prayer programme of the Mpasaso District of The Church of Pentecost in the Tepa Area has resulted in 57 adults and seven children receiving the Holy Ghost baptism, 22 being healed from various ailments, and 23 souls won for Christ.
The event, dubbed “Ahintabea 2,” also recorded several testimonies and deliverance.
The District Minister, Overseer Emmanuel Owusu, and his executive committee went on several days of prayer retreat before the programme.
Ahintabea 2 is the annual prayer conference organised to deepen the spiritual relationship of the members with the Lord as they fast and pray to be set on the fire of the Holy Ghost to possess their spheres for the Lord.
The 2023 Ahintabea prayer was the second edition, which was held from 9th to 15th October 2023, on the theme: “Repositioned into His Presence for Maximum Impact” (Ezekial 48:35 and Revelation 21:3). Among the speakers were Apostle David Nii-Addo Pappoe (Tepa Area Head), Overseer Emmanuel Owusu (Mpasaso District), Pastor Samuel Amoako Agyarko (Achaise District), Pastor Eric K. Gyabare (Hwidiem District), Pastor Stephen Larbi (Tepa District), Overseer Henseley Agyare Darfour (Abonsuaso District) and Elder Samuel Coffie (Sokoban District).
The programme led to over 400 adult participants and 250 children, members and over 50 non-members from the Mpasaso and its environs.
The event featured seasoned musicians such as Elder Carlos Coffie, Minister Kofi Addo, Brother Godfred Boateng, Sister Ekuah Gyamfuah, Minister Ampong and the district choir.
During the climax session, the Area Head, Apostle David Nii Addo Pappoe, speaking on the topic: “The Pattern for the Church” (Acts 2:44-47), urged members to stoke the Holy Ghost’s fire to provoke God’s presence in the local church.
He explained that when the fire is burning in the church, God’s presence is inevitable, signs and wonders shall be seen, and many souls shall be won for Christ.
He encouraged presiding elders to pray with the members to make the local church a prayer centre.
This year’s event was unprecedented as it featured continuous nights of prayer, days of fasting, Holy Ghost empowerment, fellowship, and other entertaining activities.
