Popular Ghanaian gospel musician, Celestine Donkor is currently on a pilgrimage to one of the most sacred places in the Christian religion, the River Jordan.

The River Jordan or the Jordan River as it is so called is the place, Jesus Christ was reportedly baptized by John The Baptist when he was all set to start his ministry at age 30.

For Celestine, this journey is to get her close to her maker and possibly get an encounter with the holy spirit once more.

Sharing a little testimony online after she came out of the Jordan River, she revealed that the experience is one she cannot just use words to express.

The ‘Agbelolo’ hitmaker went further to pray for people who are going through all sorts of issues in life and asked others to also leave their prayer requests for the divine intervention of God.

She wrote as the caption of the video she shared: ‘MY JORDAN ENCOUNTER IN ISREAL: Words fail me to describe how I felt on the Jordan River. (Where Jesus was baptized and the Spirit came on him like a dove) In Jesus name I send you all this joy, love healing and freedom I am feeling right now. DROP YOUR PRAYER REGUESTS IN COMMENT SESSION.’

ATWAG unveils new logo as it introduces new policies

WhatsApp Image 2022-07-28 at 7.58.31 AM

The Arts and Tourism Writers Association of Ghana (ATWAG) is embarking on a revival.

The association held a programme dubbed ATWAG BRAND REFRESH on Friday, July 21, 2022 at the Alisa Hotel to outline strategies to make it more vibrant and attractive.

In his speech, the President of ATWAG, George Quaye, noted that he was dedicated to making the group more impactful to the arts, tourism and culture space.

As part of his plans, he announced that ATWAG will be having a group welfare policy with Star Assurance.

“We cannot continue to rely on friends and fellow group members when the unexpected happens. We must take charge of our own fortunes and mitigate whatever negative effects an unexpected event may plunge us into.”

“This is what inspired us to broker a new insurance policy with the STAR ASSURANCE GROUP. They will share the policy with us and I do hope we all sign on because starting tonight, ATWAG will no longer contribute monies to support members especially in the case of death,” George Quaye noted.

 

The policy has four (4) slots for each ATWAG member, spouse (if any), two (2) parents or in-laws. One can nominate a parent as well.

He also announced the group’s readiness to collaborate with institutions within the creative industry including the Ministry of Information and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.

 

Mr. Quaye intends to introduce games as means of recreation, socialisation and networking.

“Additionally, we will also launch “THE ATWAG GAMES” to help curb the problems of writers block, a lack of creativity, inspiration, drive and most importantly to bring our members together in fun activities while sharing ideas, nurturing relationships and growing stronger for Mother Ghana,” he added.

 

After that a new logo for ATWAG was unveiled at the programme.

There were performances from singer Awura-Ama and poet Nana Asaase.

Also present at the ATWAG Brand Refresh event were Nanabenyin Dadson (Former Editor of Graphic Showbiz and Head of Journalism AUCC), Engineer Dr Ken Ashigbe ( the CEO of Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications), Mark Okraku Mantey (Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture) and Socrate Safo (the Board Chairman of the Film Classification Committee).

 

Others were Kwadwo Antwi (the CEO of the Ghana Tourism Development Company), Akwasi Agyemang (CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority) and Palgrave Aboagye Danquah (Government Spokesperson for Governance and Security) who represented the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah.

“Following my announcement last year of changes in our operational architecture to reflect current realities and demands of our church, I have accepted the new role of Archbishop of the Perez Chapel International.”

“Upon my elevation as Archbishop, please be informed that I am relinquishing the position of Presiding Bishop. As Archbishop of Perez Chapel International, I shall continue as the Prelate of the Dzorwulu Branch, (Perez Dome), and would continue to take charge of regular Sunday Church Services and all other activities as I have always done,” he noted.

He added that he will devote more attention to visiting other branches across the nation to ensure greater presence in “our national network of branches while ensuring that I am sufficiently present at the Dome.”

I ask all of you to cooperate with him to lead us on our development and growth trajectory over the period and what God has purposed for us as a church,” he said.
