The newly-assigned Tarkwa Area of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Daniel Okyere Walker, and his family, received a rousing reception during a welcome service held in their honour on Sunday, November 29, 2020.
The ceremony, which took place at the Rev. E. K. Kyei Memorial Temple, was officiated by the Takoradi Area Head, Apostle Joseph K. Assabil.
Delivering a sermon titled: “Be Alert To Recognise God’s Visitation,” with John 1:1-4, Hebrew 1:1-4 and Matthew 23:36-39, as scripture references, Apostle Assabil advised Christians to always be on the alert to discern the visitation of the Lord.
According to the Takoradi Area Head, Christians would only recognise the moments of God’s visitations when they are constantly sensitive to the leadings of the Holy Spirit in all their endeavours.
Apostle Assabil further stated that “blessed is the man who comes in the name of the Lord, so the men of God who have served in this Area were sent to the Area by God. Therefore, although each Area Head may have a different approach to work, all of them were sent by almighty God to fulfil His divine purpose in the Area.”
Apostle Dr. Walker, in his response, commended his predecessors, particularly his immediate-past Area Head, Apostle John Appiah Aidoo, for the good works done in the Area, adding that he was very confident that God will help him to build on the gains made so far.
“Tarkwa Area is going to be a Golden Area not because of its numerous mineral deposits but that the Area will be golden in souls winning, evangelism, finances and all the other indicators of the church. Tarkwa Area is going to be expensive and beautiful just as gold is and that the Lord will lead His church to become the ‘Number One Area,’” he said.
The event had in attendance Apostle Onyinah Gyamfi (Bogoso Area Head), Pastor Samuel Emery Yormesor (Tarkwa Area Secretary) and the entire area pastorate.
Also present were Elder John Arthur (the Tarkwa Area Deacon), representatives from Pentecost International Worship Centre, Kokomlemele (PIWC-Kokomlemle) and representatives from Management and Council of Pentecost University.
