Five Districts in the Takoradi Area of The Church of Pentecost have raised an amount of GHS 16, 346.90 to support the work of missions.
The amount was presented to the Missions Office on Wednesday, December 15, on behalf of the Area by the New Takoradi District Minister, Pastor Solomon Nii Ashaley Djani, during a short presentation ceremony at the General Headquarters at La in Accra.
In addition to the amount, the Area donated a motor bicycle, a 32-channel mixer, a Behringer 6-channel mixer, 73 half-piece clothes, 10 pairs of men trousers, eight pairs of ladies’ shoes, six pairs of men’s shirts, three ladies’ suits and 12 men’s suits.
The donation was realised during the weeklong ‘Missions Promotion’ exercise undertaken by the National Head, Apostle Semenya Dogbe, and his wife, Rosina, in some districts of the area.
Apostle and Mrs. Dogbe arrived in the Takoradi Area on Monday, December 6, and were received and hosted by the Area Head, Apostle Joseph Assabil, and the Area Missions Committee.
The couple ended their promotion exercise on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, after paying separate visits to the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC-Takoradi), Adientem District, New Takoradi District, New Site District and Takoradi District.
Once every three years, missionaries of the Church are granted a furlough (leave of absence) to return to their home country for a period not exceeding three months. As part of their stay, they are encouraged to undertake ‘Mission Promotion’ exercises, where they educate the church public about missions work and promote missions activities to raise funds and mobilise the needed support for missions.
Among other things, the furlough allows missionaries to relax, undergo medical checkups, and reconnect with their families and friends.
