Mr. Frank Awuah, a member of the Manso Akwasiso District in the Ashanti Bekwai Area of The Church of Pentecost, has donated a 23-seater Mercedes-Benz Sprinter minibus and a generator, worth GHS 205,500.00, to the District.
The vehicle (GHS 200,000.00) and the generator (GHS 5,500.00) were both handed over to the Church on Friday, March 17, 2023 at a colourful ceremony held at the forecourt of the Akwasiso Central Assembly.
Making the presentation, Mr. Frank Awuah, who is known for his philanthropic acts, said he thanked the Almighty God for counting him worthy to serve His church in the ministry of giving.
He noted that the bus would enable the District to convey her members to and from Church events such as outreaches, conventions, Zonal prayer meetings, and other special ceremonies including funerals, weddings, naming ceremonies, etc.
The generator, on the other hand, would help provide electricity for Church programmes, especially during periods of power outages. Apostle Fred Tiakor, the Ashanti Bekwai Area Head, who received the documents and the car keys on behalf of the Church, expressed delight and profound gratitude to the Lord for touching the hearts of members to give sacrificially to support the Kingdom business. He further thanked Mr. Awuah for the kind gesture.
Reading from 1Chronicles 13:14, Apostle Tiakor said the Ark of God represents the presence of God, hence Obed-Edom elicited the blessings of God when, in obedience to Him, he made his home its resting place. The Area Head further noted that the sacrificial service of Obed-Edom resulted in the favour of God resting in his household.
“The obedience of Obed-Edom caused the Lord to bless him and his household,” he stressed. Apostle Fred Tiakor prayed for divine blessings for Mr. Awuah and his family and encouraged other Church members to emulate his good example.
He also advised the District to adopt a good maintenance culture to keep the vehicle in good shape and prolong its lifespan. In attendance were Pastor Emmanuel Okoh Lartey (Bekwai District), Pastor Samuel Kusi (Akwasiso District), Pastor Seth Ansah (Nampansa District), Pastor Jonah Sei (Keniago District), Pastor Gordon Asare (Dawusaso District), as well as officers and members of the Manso Akwasiso District.
