President John Mahama has described the Founder of Perez Chapel, Bishop Charles Agyin Asare and other men of God as pillars of Ghana.
“Bishop Agyin Asare and many other men of God have been pillars of this nation,” he told thousands of worshippers at the Church on the night of December 31, 2014 when he joined them to in a cross over service into the New Year. “I know and value their immeasurable contribution to where we have reached today as a people and the role that they will continue to play as we move progressively into a future of peace and prosperity,” the President said.
He said: “As President, I remind myself each day of my calling to serve and to help create a prosperous nation for ourselves and successive generations.”
Explaining his reason for joining the church service at Perez Chapel, the President said: “I’m here to worship with you tonight because I want to testify that I believe I’m nothing without God and I know and believe that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
President Mahama, who was at the church service with his wife and some Government officials also said he hoped a prophecy by Perez’s Founding Bishop, Charles Agyin Asare that 2015 will be a year of fruitfulness, comes to pass for the country.
“As President of Ghana, I claim it on behalf of the nation,” President Mahama said.
He added that he was excited to have joined the Church to worship God and cross over into 2015.
