Eight Apostles, two Bishops, community leaders, ministers, members of Accra West district and Nkawkaw Apostle Area joined the Taifa congregation on Saturday 5th December to witness the Holy Matrimony of Deacon Prince Okyere Boakye and Sister Emma Dedaa Ansong, both members of the Taifa congregation. The ceremony was officiated by Lead Apostle Benjamin Ohene-Saffo.
The Lead Apostle based his sermon on the text word Ephesians 5:31-33, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband’.
Lead Apostle Ohene-Saffo opened the sermon and likened it to a tree as the man and the branch as the woman. He admonished that when the branch is cut off, the tree cannot bear fruit, and likewise the branch cannot grow without the main tree. He advised that both partners should accept each other’s background. He mentioned that loving on the groom’s side is a must whereas humbleness on the part of the wife is also a must. With Christ in their marriage, they shall receive the blessings of God always. He therefore encouraged the bride to revere her husband. This in turn will make her husband grow in love for her.
In his conclusion, he encouraged the groom to have a big heart to contain the bride and vice-versa. Both should learn to forgive each other at all times. He wished them blessings from the Father in Heaven.
The occasion was supported by the Lead Apostle Samuel Oppong-Brenya, Apostles Nortey, Ashie-Kotei, Asampong, Boakye, Osei and Kuada. Bishops Asare and Ampofo were also present.
Deacon Boakye is a Lieutenant in the Ghana Army and the son of Apostle Boakye (Nkawkaw Apostle area). Sister Emma is a born member of the New Apostolic Church and a strong support to the University of Cape Coast congregation.
