A new manse for the Saint Paul  Methodist Church has been dedicated at Tinkong, near Koforidua, in the Eastern Region.

The construction of the manse, which started a year and half ago, was made possible through individual contributions and particularly support from the Emmanuel Methodist Society at East Airport in Accra.

In an address, the Methodist Bishop of Koforidua Diocese, Right Reverend Michael Bossman, paid glowing  tribute to Mr and Mrs Emmanuel  Botchway of Regimanuel Gray Company Limited, Mr Addo Ekrement of Accra and others for their contributions to the growth of the Methodist Church Ghana.

He urged members of the church to always look up to God, saying: "As long as you turn to God, good things will come to you."

He said God had plans for his people and urged Christians not to pre-judge people who asked them for favour.

Bishop Bossman was not happy that despite statistics which showed that about 71.2 per cent of Ghanaians were Christians, most of them were hypocritical when it came to issues of bribery and corruption, adding "how can we let God's plan work?”.

"Delays of God's plans are not denial but rather to try and test our faith since supplications are driven by perseverance," he said.

He urged members of the church to lead lifestyles worthy of emulation
