The Accra New Town District in La Area of The Church of Pentecost has donated assorted items worth several millions of cedis to the Missions Office to support the missions enterprise of the Church.
The items included two brand new 2018-model Nissan NP300 Pickup trucks, 10 Royal model tricycles and two Indian made Piaggio ape tricycles, all donated by Elder Samuel Amo Tobbin (Chairman of Tobinco Group of Companies), who is also the Presiding Elder of Dr. Thomas Wyatt Memorial Temple Assembly; a brand new Royal RYGY 150 Motor Bike jointly donated by four members of the same assembly (Brothers Ebenezer Bekoe, Samuel Agyapong, Francis Abayateye and George Boafo).
Others were 224 pieces of clothes and Benadryl which is used to treat sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, hives, skin rash, itching, and other cold or allergy symptoms.
The donation was presented to the International Missions Director (IMD), Apostle Emmanuel Gyesi-Addo, on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, by the La Area Head, Apostle John Appiah Aidoo, on behalf of the Accra New Town District.
Present to witness the short ceremony were Pastors George Ankomah (Accra New Town District), Solomon Nii Asharley Djani (La District), Emmanuel Dominic Annor (Trade Fair), Peter Mensah Yanney (Alajo District who also doubles as Area Missions Committee Chairman) and some officers of the Accra New Town District. Also present was the Personal Assistant to the IMD, Pastor Anthony Owusu Sekyere Kwarteng.
According to Apostle John Appiah Aidoo, the items were procured as part of this year’s Missions Week observed in March 2018.
Receiving the keys and documents to the vehicles and the tricycles, the IMD on behalf of the Missions Board thanked the Lord for touching the hearts of the persons behind the donation to support the mission work. He also expressed the Board’s heartfelt appreciation to the Area Head, the Area Missions Committee, the Accra New Town District Pastor, the donors and the rest of the members for the massive support.
Describing the donation as very rare, Apostle Gyesi-Addo prayed for God’s continuous blessing upon the donors and all those who contributed to it.
He indicated that it will go a long way to benefit both internal and external missions areas of the Church.
