The external branch of The Church of Pentecost (CoP) in Trinidad & Tobago, under the leadership of Pastor Dr. E. Otu-Nyarko, recently organised a three-day evangelism crusade and medical outreach in San Juan Barataria, Trinidad.
The event was held in collaboration with the Youth & PENSA Ministry of CoP-USA.
The CoP-USA delegation, led by Apostle Dr. Michael Portuphy, Director for Youth and Pensa Ministry, included 15 medical professionals, his wife, Dr. Mrs. Cynthia Portuphy, and Pastor Fidelis Mensah of Kansas District.
Medical screenings were performed by doctors and nurses from the Pensa Ministry before the evangelism crusades, which were held in the evenings.
All services were offered free of charge, and donations of glucose monitors, blood pressure machines, eyeglasses, and other medical monitoring equipment were distributed to participants.
The Pensa Ministry also donated NIV Bibles and Tracts to aid in the evangelistic outreaches of the local church.
The presence of the Holy Spirit was felt throughout the event as musical performances and powerful gospel messages were delivered by Pastor Mensah and Apostle Dr. Mike Portuphy.
The sick were healed, demons were cast out, and 19 souls were won to Christ.
In another historic moment, six officers were ordained as Elders, Deacons, and Deaconesses of the Church by Apostle Dr. Michael Portuphy, assisted by the National Head, Pastor Dr. Ebenezer Otu-Nyarko.
The ordination was the first of its kind in the Church.
