2015 World Hope Day: Ghanaians urged to be Ambassadors of Hope


The World Hope Day 2015 has been marked in Accra on Monday at the Mission of Hope Ministries, Dzorwulu, with a call on Ghanaians to be ambassadors of hope to the nation rather than being agents of darkness.

Rev. Dr. Ebenezer Alabi, host pastor of the Mission of Hope Ministries, initiator of the World Hope Day made the call at the evening inaugural ceremony to mark the day. He urged patrons tokeep hopes alive no matter the situation in life, adding, “Without hope there’s no life and where there is life there is hope”.

He said: “One of the most important things in life is hope, that’s why we need to set up a day like this to give hope to people. Hope is what you need to be what you want to be in life, so when there is hope we can face life…knowing that where there is no hope, certainly there’s no life”.

The message of hope preached by the ”Apostle of Hope” himself, as he is also known in the Christian faith, was clear and straight to the point “don’t give up; there is hope for you!” he charged the patrons.

Whilst speaking on the topic “The Power of Hope” Rev. Dr. Alabi, noted “every problem we are facing in this world is the problem of hope” adding “when we have hope we will be able to face life”.

He remarked: “Our behavioural pattern depends on the level of our hope, blaming the root cause of every crime on lack of hope.

The Apostle of hope disclosed his decision to initiate the World Hope Day was due to the absence of a mark of such an important day in life when other days are observed across the world yearly. According to him, just a little is being said or done about the word ‘hope’ whilst the word ‘faith’ is being talked about extensively on daily basis across the world, especially among various religious beliefs.

Rev. Dr. Alabi revealed he is desirous to be the happiest man in life and after death to have an inscription on his tomb that says “founder of the World Hope Day”. This, he described as the ‘mark of a successful man’ who has lived, gone, and will be forever remembered by generations for years to come in blessed memory.

Various ministers who preached at the event re-echoed the word hope in their delivery, stressing the need for the world to experience hope and urging patrons to be ambassadors of hope. An intense prayer session was held for God to restore hope in the entire nation.

Dignitaries who graced the occasion included the Executive President of all Nigerian Community in Ghana, Moses Owharo, Mr. Charles Sam, a motivational speaker, Rev. Dr. Bishop Peters Rev. Joseph Shaka from South Africa, and Pastor Mrs. Demay Alabi.
