PENSA-PU Acquires New Bus

In an impressive display of faith and determination, the Pentecost University (PU) branch of Pentecost Students and Associates (PENSA) has successfully acquired a new bus.

The long-awaited bus, which was purchased at the cost of GHS 1.9 million cedis, will play a vital role in the group’s mission to proclaim the gospel and reach out to souls for Christ.

An unfortunate accident during a fun trip to Koklobite Beach in November 2019 had left PENSA-PU’s old bus completely broken down. Since then, finding reliable transportation for evangelism outreaches had been a hurdle.

For this reason, the quest for a new bus had been a pressing issue for both members and leaders of PENSA-PU.

Speaking at a special ceremony held on Sunday, July 30, 2023, to dedicate the bus, Elder Richard Mbelembote, the PENSA-PU President, mentioned that the journey to secure the new bus was not without its challenges.

According to him, the efforts to acquire the new bus started in 2020 during the tenure of Elder Prince Oppong as the group’s president. The Elder Andrews Awuku-led team also pushed the agenda when they took over in 2022.

Elder Mbelembote further stated that when the current leadership took over the mantle of leadership, they also assured the members of their commitment to pursuing the vision. They, therefore, set up the Financial Empowerment Committee to explore various means of raising funds for the project.

The committee’s efforts yielded positive results, leading to generous contributions from the members and various donors, including Elder Ing Felix Astrim of FeDems Limited, who supported the project with GHS 100.000.00.

Elder Mbelembote also expressed gratitude to Pastor Nelson Adu and his wife, Mrs. Celestine Adu, for their tremendous support in making the vision a reality.

Dedicating the bus, the Vice Chancellor of Pentecost University, Apostle Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua, emphasised the significance of dedicating everything used for the work of God to Him.

He remarked that, while the bus is a mechanical device, through prayers and the grace of God, it becomes a tool for the greater mission.

On his part, the Campus Minister, Pastor Nelson Adu, expressed appreciation to God and all those who contributed to the purchase of the bus.

He also thanked the Vice Chancellor for his support and presence during the fundraising process.

Following this significant milestone, the leadership and members of PENSA-PU have been advised to care for the bus and instill a maintenance culture in order to benefit many generations to come.
