The past Sunday, 9th February 2014,was very memorable for the thousands of people who visited Apostle Dr Kwadwo Safo’s 111 acre stretched site where the Apostle Safo Suaye Technology Research Centre is domiciled.
The venue was filled to capacity and lighted up by the cheerful faces and jolly hearts as more folks from different parts of the nation and the continent poured in their numbers, for the 43rd Anniversary Party of Kristo Asafo Mission, Apostle Dr Safo’s established Church.
Members of the church’s international branches were all present. Hon. Adwoa Safo, Member of Parliament for the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency and other dignitaries were also present at the occasion.
Forty three years later, this is one of the biggest success stories being told. The Star of Africa and his Kristo Asafo mission have come a long way. Right from the on-set, the church pioneered in indigenous agriculture, charity and most obviously, technology. The church has carried out the largest philanthropic activity in Ghana and its widely famous for its high rocketing technological powers that has hit the surface of the earth. This has not distracted the core gospel mission but has strengthened it the more.
Memories and appreciation culminated in smiles as various members took to the dancing grounds at the occasion. Live Band music swayed the relaxing background temperature to set the tone for the event.
As with all programs rooted in our black heritage, the occasion had a healthy variety of cultural dance performances. The prestigious drums of indigenous Ghanaian rhythm history were present in style. Audiences cheered particularly for the renowned “Fontomfrom” as it dished royal tunes unto the place. The first dance was an artistic account of Ghana’s migration routes.
Other fantabulous performances followed, in the rich pattern of beat and response. The dancers were adorned in various cloths of tradition; red, white etc… with traditional symbols embedded. One could almost feel the hype of passion running through the muscles of these performers. Nothing seemed to hold them back. Soon, audiences had been treated to local masterpieces such as the “Kete” and Apatampa dances.
Local praise songs marvelled the people in attendance too. More worthy performances followed as well as testimonies. When Apostle Dr Kwadwo Safo Kantanka finally had the stage, he spoke widely on the relevance of 3rd February 1971 (the day the Church was first established) and the history of the church.
Looking to the future, the Star of Africa urged members of the Church and the myriad personalities present to work hard and uphold the nation and Africa in high esteem.
Work is still on-going at the assembly plant and the workers are more than ready to make history.
Africa Redemption Magazine wishes them a fruitful and prosperous 43rd anniversary.
