After the special end of year divine service on 31st December, 2023, our Chief Editor and Reporter, Bishop Eric Ampadu (rtd) approached some members of the Osu congregation to share their expectations for the new year, 2024.
Sister Lillian Nachibi Mwambwa Muyunda and her son Ali, from Zambia, had been very regular at the divine services at Osu for the past six and a half years. It was announced that they were finally leaving for their country. Our reporter approached and asked them of their expectations for 2024.
Sister Lilian:We pray for life and also pray for the Church to grow. We hope to improve on what we couldn't do well, especially attending Wednesday divine services. We also pray for mercy and God's guidance in the year 2024.
Other members of the congregation also shared their expectations:
Sister Millicent Luthrodt: “I have asked the Lord to give me a lot of knowledge, wisdom, profession and strength to be able to carry out the new mantle ahead of me in 2024. Because He started it for me and I know He will never fail me. He will take me through because I cannot do it alone. He will be my Guide, Protector and my Shield. God bless us all.”
Brother Magnus Cofie, in a hearty moment after the divine service said: “I expect the year 2024 to be filled with God's blessings. To make our hearts’ desires come to pass to the glory of His name - for health and wealth, for our family, our parents, our siblings and all their family members and their in-laws in the mighty name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.”
Brother and Sister Anobaah, from Accra Central congregation, had earlier visited the reporter's residence at Osu to express their joy for what the Lord has done for their family: “God has been our source of help and has done many wonderful works for my entire family for which we are very grateful. He gave my daughter and her husband the opportunity to travel abroad to study. Another joy was that they were two when they left the shores of Ghana. Now they are four. Glory be to God.
Ending on a personal note, Sister Anobaah stole a moment to extend her greetings to our reporter, Bishop Eric Ampadu (rtd): “My husband and I are also here to specially wish you a very blessed and happy new year!.”
