Rev Yawson & The Tagoe Sisters    The presence of Rev Yawson and the Tagoe sisters was such a blessing to the church, beautiful and powerful voices coming from the Rev and the sisters didn’t only touch the heart of the congregation, but left many with a wonderful understanding of how to worship the Lord. With a house full on Saturday Oct 2nd 04 and Sunday Oct 3rd 04, our spirits were raised and the love of God deepened.

Seeing the Rev and sisters go brought tears to the eyes of many, they are so warm, so friendly and despite their tremendous success in life, they are exceptionally humble in all their ways. We hope to invite them again next year and definitely know those who unfortunately couldn’t make it to this program, will find time to come and enjoy such a wonderful blessing next year.

We would like to say a big thank you to God for his blessings over their ministry and that of Cornerstone Evangel Int’l Church. We would also like to thank Rev Yawson and the sisters for making this program one to be remembered in our lives for a very long time, may the Lord God almighty increase the anointing he has bestowed upon their ministry, and may they touch the soul of the sick, sad and destitute when they minister.

Our next thanks goes to the pastors of Jesus Power Assembly at Columbus Ohio, for helping make this program a success, may the blessings of God be upon them.

And finally, we would like to say a big thank you to Rev Bonsu, visitors, and members of Cornerstone Evangel Int’l Church for their patronage and support to the Church, may God be their guide and protector. Amen!
