Apostle Newton O Nyarko
Ap. Nyarko, self, Ps Odei and Mrs Ntumy

The Ntumy Family continues to be blessed and refreshed by the love and camaraderie shown us by the entire church membership and Christian friends across the globe. These are expressed through their fervent prayer support, phone-calls, emails, and visits to us. To you all we are eternally grateful.

Last week-end and in the middle of this week, we were blessed to play host to two apostles. On Saturday 19th January 2013, Apostle Newton Ofosuhene Nyarko, National Head of The Church of Pentecost, U.K, paid us a one-day visit with Pastor Raymond Odei, his National Secretary.

We had wonderful moments of prayer, conversations over a wide range of topics, and reminiscences of our last year's vacation in UK. The fellowship was so great that their moment of departure was like a virtual tearing apart.

Following in their heels from 22nd-24th January were Apostle Samuel Obeng, COP National Head, Austria, and his wife, Patience who was seeing me for the first time since I got into this new condition. The emotions oscillated between tearful and joyful moments, and sometimes just plain silence.

Apostle Sammy Obeng
Their three-day visit was a delightful one. It was a pleasure listening to this youngest COP Apostle in Europe sharing about the progress of the church in Austria and their vision for the future. We had much to be thankful to the LORD. Like all others, their prayer was for my early recovery, to the glory of God.

 Such visits, coupled with the massive prayer support and other aspects by which you express your love to us, lighten the weight we bear and brighten the path we travel during this phase of our life. As you remain resolute with us in prayer, it would not be long before we see the miracle we are awaiting. BLESSINGS.

Ap. S. Yiadom, National Head, Germany  
For us in Germany 2012 ended in a grand style. The last to visit us were Apostle Godwin Osei Bonsu, the COP Head of Nkawkaw Area in Ghana, Pastor Emmanuel Quaye, National Head, Ukraine and his wife, Matilda, and Pastor Samuel Nana Yaw Agyei, National Head, Cape Verde and his wife Nora. Coinciding with their visit was our National Prayer Conference, in which they were greatly used by the LORD to bless the church.

The LORD, by His grace, has ushered us into another brand new year 2013. All of us really do understand that our lives are "kept by the power of God."

Drawing from King David who said as he faced Goliath, "The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine"(1 Sam. 17:37 NIV), our confidence is that the same LORD who saw us throughout 2012 will also see us throughout 2013.

For the Ntumy family in particular and COP, Germany in general, we were privileged to have the CHAIRMAN of our church, Apostle Dr Opoku Onyinah, paying us a visit on the 3rd and 4th January. "Apostle, it has been a while since I last visited you. I miss you and would like to squeeze some time to visit you at the beginning of the year." That was the Chairman to me in December last year.

True to his promise, he came. His visit was a refreshing to us. He brought us greetings from the church, from certain individuals and from many others outside the COP fraternity. We conversed for hours, with the Chairman defying the somnolence from his overnight flight. We were blessed. We were encouraged. We were inspired.
A thought flashed my mind and I said to him: "During incapacitation one of the greatest things that friends can give is the assurance that all is not over yet; that one is still needed and cherished. And that is what the entire church and thousands of others continue to demonstrate to me,"

May the LORD lead us every step along the way throughout 2013, even when we do not see our guiding STAR;
May HE, the Great Shepherd of our souls, bear us up in His arms all along the way;
May He provide our every need, or trust Him as we go through times of need;
May He cause all our dreams to be fulfilled, or grant us the grace to gather the pieces of our shattered dreams and the determination to start all over again until we succeed;
May this year see the end of your trials, testings, and tribulations or may He increase your dose of endurance to the appointed time;
May your miracle, in whatever form or shape, come in overflowing measure.
