Rev. Ntreh charged them not to be afraid “for God knows everything and knows how to equip them with His Grace to go through all challenges.”
“Let your lifestyle be an example to the younger generation to follow. You are called by God to lead. God gave the congregation the wisdom to elect you for this cause; read the Bible and apply the word,” he concluded.
