Ex-Veep Worships With Toronto Ghanaian
The former Vice President of Ghana, His Excellency, Professor John Atta Mills on Saturday, November 29, 2003 took time off his busy schedule during a recent visit to Toronto to worship with the members of the Ghanaian Seventh-day Adventist Church at 285 Attwell Drive.
He was welcomed to the church by Elders Aboagye Gabby, Daniel Nyantakyi, Kennedy Asarfo-Adjei, Charles Osei, Dan Oteng, Tutu Akuoko and Mike Fokuo. Prof. Atta Mills was introduced to the congregation by Mr Kwame Aboagye-Agyeman who is the chairman of the Toronto Chapter of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In a brief message of greetings, Prof. Atta Mills encouraged the church members and Ghanaians to hold fast to their faith in God. He said, “there is no power anywhere greater than God. With God all things are possible.” Speaking in fluent Fante to the admiration of worshippers, the former Veep stressed the need to bring up our youth who are the future leaders of our country in the fear of God. He asked the church to continue to pray for all the leaders in the political realm of Ghana so that the Almighty God would guide and guard all the leaders in their lives and services to the nation so that Ghana would become a prosperous country for all.
The day’s sermon was preached by Dr. Ransford Danso. Dr. Danso reminded the worshippers of the importance of the choices we make in life and stressed the fact that such choices greatly influence what we do and what we become in future.
If we choose to listen to God in His Word we would be blessed by doing His biddings. We would then have part in God’s kingdom, which is not of this sinful, stressful and hopeless world of today. The sermon, which was titled, “The Anchor of the Christian Hope” was based on Philippians 3:20. Special prayers were offered for Prof. Atta Mills and his entourage as well as the government and people of Ghana. The visitors were also presented with book gifts by the church.
