TRIBUTE TO REV. T. B. DANKWAH – BY REV. DR. AHMED ADJEI “For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.” (2 Corinthians 5:1-4). Rev. T. B. Dankwa lived in the hope of the above Scriptures. He is now asleep and waiting to be clothed gloriously in Heaven. I met with Rev. T. B. Dankwa around 1987, shortly after the birth of Converted Muslims Christian Ministry (C.M.C.M.). He came to love me as a son, as a friend, and as a young minister. He took such a close interest in me and in my ministry, CMCM. and the Straight-Way Chapel Int. He and his family prayed regularly for us, and also supported us financially. He occasionally visited and ministered in our church. Besides, he every now and again called to ask how far my ministerial work was going, especially my ministry to Muslims. He encouraged and motivated me always. At the inaugural ceremony of Muslim Background Believers Koinonia Movement (MBBKM) in October 2020, he was present to participate with his wife as a Board member. He also helped to sponsor the programme through an unknown personality who didn’t want to be mentioned. Through his instrumentality, Korle Bu Community Chapel became one of the churches that gave us so much support. Rev. Dankwa introduced and connected me to many international organizations, notably the Association of Evangelicals in Africa (A.E.A.), headquartered in Nairobi, which further broadened my network of friends and organizations. Whenever he was in Kumasi he called me so we could meet together for some conversation. The last time we met together was in November 2021, when he came to Kumasi for a wedding ceremony. Alas, I heard of the passing on of my dear father to eternity to be with his Heavenly Father who he loved very much and served very well. Without an iota of doubt, you are one of those rare gems that comes into a life – my life, as a destiny helper; as a dear father; as a dear counselor; as a motivator; and as a prayer support base. Sleep well in the Lord until we meet again in the Resurrection morning. Farewell Rev. T. B. Dankwah. May your soul rest in peace.
