The Home and Urban Missions’ (HUM) Restoration Assembly in the Old Tafo-Akim District under Koforidua Effiduase Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised an Easter convention. The convention which took place from 6th to 7th April, 2021, at Maranatha Assembly, Akyem Osiem, was on the theme, “Jesus Christ: Atonement for Our Sins” (1 John 2:2).
The afternoon sessions were used for evangelism in the ghettos at Osiem and its environs. The outreach activities yielded three new souls to join the assembly.
The Restoration Assembly, which currently has more than 40 active members, was inaugurated in February 2020, and it has since brought a great transformation in the lives of the members. Eleven members have so far received vocational training at the Pentecost Vocational Institute, Gbawe in mobile phone repairs, yogurt, ice cream and liquid soap preparations. Others were trained on fascinating and capping. Currently, two transformed ladies are being sponsored by the church for training in cosmetology and fashion design.
In an interview with PENTECOST NEWS, the District Minister, Pastor Prince Odoom, revealed that the district launched what he termed as ‘Operation Rescue Street Youth Project’ in February 2021 and has since won 35 souls.
Pastor Odoom further disclosed that the District’s Community Children’s Club that was opened and managed by himself and his wife in February 2020 with the purpose of winning street children for Christ, had 19 children transformed by the gospel message and integrated into their families, and have subsequently been enrolled in schools.
The slogan that has been carved for the HUM activities in the Old Tafo-Akim district is: “HUM, Jesus Christ is Interested in the Virgin Souls!”
