Amakom District joined several districts of the Seventh-day Adventist fraternity to draw the curtain down on its 2017 Annual Camp Meeting at Ntonso in the Kwabre East District of the Ashanti Regional.
It was held at the campus of the Ntonso Adventist Girls Senior High School (SHS), an all female second-cycle institution.
The district is made of four churches, namely, Amakom, Oforikrom, Anloga-Sobolo and Mizpah.
Speaking at a sermon to climax the camp, the President of the South-Central Ghana Conference (SCGC), Pastor Dr. Kwame Annor Boafo stressed on the need for Church members and Christians in general, to remain faithful to Lord’s word.
Quoting from Psalms 55:22, he said in attempt for Christians to be faithful to the Lord’s word it was incumbent on them to cast their burden upon the Lord.
“In other words, casting your burden upon the Lord means throwing your wait to Him. By remaining faithful to His word, you need to leave your wait for the Lord because He remains the only one to give you eternal rest and relief”, he stated.
Before sermon hour, it was announced that the congregation become conscious of keeping an eye on their personal belongings at where they were seated.
This was because it was reported to camp officials that a thief had broken into the camp site, at the assembly hall where the congregation was seated, and made away with mobile phone and pulse containing money.
The announcement made everyone therein gathered to be alert and camp officials beefed up security.
The district presented a gift to the Headmistress of the Ntonso Adventist Girls SHS, Madam Paulina Agyekum.
This was for the special role she played for maintaining conducive and camp friendly environment.
Elder Maxwell Danso presented the gift to Mrs. Margaret Adade Boateng, wife of the Amakom District Pastor, Adade Boateng and subsequently, presented to the headmistress.
The headmistress, expressed gratitude to the district for the honour done her.
