Accra, July 3, GNA –
Captain Paul Forjoe, the Ebusuapanyin of Mfantsipim Old Boys Association
(MOBA), has called on alumni associations to renew their commitment and support
their schools to propel development.

He said alumni had a
major role to play in the sustenance of their school’s legacy since all citadel
of learning had their progressive development undertaken and sustained by their
own products.

He said: “We all take
a lot of pride in the schools we attended. We can give our time, funds or
influence to help so let us be forceful and proactive towards our schools”.

Capt. Forjoe made the
call when he addressed a gathering of worshippers at the MOBA Praise and
Thanksgiving at the Covenant Family Community Church in Accra, on the theme: “A
Charge to Keep I have”.

The annual event aims
to celebrate colleagues in Christian ministry and provide a platform where they
could evangelise to alumni, their families, friends of Mfanstipim and the
public at large.

He said the MOBA Praise
2017 was a family religious event to showcase Christian beliefs, worship, give
thanks, and commune with God through songs and verses.

Capt. Forjoe said: “It
is our fervent prayer that other schools alumni will take a cue from MOBA
Praise 2017 and use their associations as vehicles to promote the Christian
faith.”

Worshippers were
thrilled with gospel songs from past students of Mfantsipim School including
Alfred P. Addaquay, Kay Kwansah, Jasher Taylor, Reverend Nana Folson, Calvis
Hammond and Yaw Antwi Dadzie.

The Joyful Way
Incorporated and the Mfantsipim School Choir also ministered to the audience
amidst exhortation and prayers by Very Reverend Kingsley Offe-Amoyaw and
Reverend Ogbarmey Tetteh.

Prophet Kakra Baiden,
a Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Chapel International, and an Old Boy of
Mfantsipim School (1987 year group), urged Christians to have faith and stand
firm in the Lord irrespective of trials that may come their way.

He said a “Charge to
Keep I have” was for Christians not to lose hope in God but be resolute and
believe in Him.

He, therefore,
entreated Christians to trust in God’s faithfulness and remain committed to His
word.

An amount of GH¢ 2,000
was donated to the Covenant Family Community Church’s Educational Endowment
Fund.
