The Revival Assembly of the Assemblies of God Church in Wa has expressed its deepest condolences to the family of the pastor who was stabbed to death last week Sunday in Tema.
Delivering his New Year message, Rev Robert Akolbugri, the Head Pastor of Revival Assemblies of God Church in Wa, described the death of Rev David Nabegmado as “tragic”, and asked God to keep his family safe.
“I also express my heartfelt condolence to the family of the late Revered Dr. David Nabegmado who passed due to tragic circumstances,” he said.
The deceased was the Senior Pastor of Tema Community Four Assemblies of God Church who was preparing to deliver a sermon that morning when his nephew stormed his office and stabbed him multiple times in between his head and neck, according to police report.
The sad incident threw the entire congregation into a state of mourning with several worshippers describing the late pastor as a “lovely and caring man” who impacted on several lives in the society and the Church.
The Church anticipates to do more to prosecute its mission, Rev Akolbugri said: “We would launch up to the deep area in the Upper West Region where the Gospel has not been heard.
“We would like to rescue souls that are perishing and also work on the spiritual growth of individual members of the Church”.
He said it was unfortunate that the country was still “riddled with corrupt practices in offices and homes” even though a majority of the people in Ghana remained Christians.
“It is very sad that honesty has been thrown to the dogs in our moral fabric,” he said.
Rev Robert Akolbugri urged members of the church to be honest in all their dealings, saying: “No shortcut or underhand dealings”.
“Let us make it a point not be worried about who would apprehend or catch me but instead look up to God who sees you at all places and do the right thing”.
The grace of God upon the church is stronger and mightier to do good works both in the physical and the spiritual.
The Head Pastor also urged members to be responsible citizens and keep the environment safe especially during this harmattan season and eschew bush burning.
“Keep our surroundings clean. Remember cleanliness is next to Godliness,” he added.
Members of the Church were encouraged to begin with something new and should not be deterred by what did not work for them in the previous year.
“Start afresh and God would crown every small beginning with good success,” he said.
After the message, the entire congregation was charged with intercessory prayers, praise and worship and testimonies that marked the crossover to 2019.
