Dear Chairman,

''For not from the east nor from the west nor from the south come promotion and lifting up. But God is the Judge! He puts down one and lifts up another" (Psa. 75:6,7 Amp)
Apostle Dr Opoku Onyinah, Chairman of The Church of Pentecost; President of Ghana Pentecostal Council; Member, National Peace Council

It was with great joy and exhilaration that I heard of your appointment and induction as member of the historic NATIONAL PEACE COUNCIL. We give glory to God Almighty who has caused His searchlight to fall on you for membership on this Council, a novelty in Ghana and even in Africa. Promotion, we are told, comes from God. To Him be the glory.

Your appointment to this Council is definitely a recognition of the role of The Church of Pentecost in national affairs, just as our Covenant-keeping God promised He would use us. Our impact as a church is no longer limited to our prayer-power and our ubiquitous presence in the nation, but also to salting the decadence, and lighting the darkness in our society; having a voice in national affairs and helping to shape the politics of our nation. As children of God, we are agents of peace, and your membership of this Council confirms what society thinks and requires of us.

Beloved Chairman, permit me to also point out that your appointment as member of this lofty Council is also an affirmation of your personality and leadership style. Promotion does not come to one who waits for him, but to one who prepares for him. Since you assumed office as Chairman of The Church of Pentecost about three years ago, you have distinguished yourself as a genuine servant of God and of the people. Promotion cannot skip over such. No wonder, within this calendar year, you were also elected President of the Ghana Pentecostal Council, the umbrella organization for over 220 Pentecostal and Charismatic churches in Ghana.

Therefore as we bless and praise the LORD for what He has done, I deem it appropriate to send you this message of CONGRATULATIONS. You have honored the LORD and honored our church.

 We assure you our continuous prayer and moral support as you serve Church and State in our generation. We pray that as you join with other members of the Council, your work will yield the needed national cohesion, cause the cessation of all war drums, extinguish all smoking guns, diffuse the potentially explosive political time-bomb in the nation and resolve the numerous tribal and internecine conflicts.

We wish you and the Council every success. Once again, receive my CONGRATULATIONS.

Together in Kingdom Business,
Apostle Dr. Michael Ntumy
The Church Of Pentecost
