Habakkuk 2:3 says: “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at
the end, it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it;
because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
This is the story of “September to Remember.” Rev. Dr. Patrick E Quainoo about 2 decades ago received divine mandate from God in the U.S.A to gather his people for a
month long prayer and fasting with the expectation that when everything is over, people will have tangible testimonies to the Glory of God. The Lord further expanded
the idea of the 9th month, bearing in mind that women conceive and carry pregnancy for that period. If therefore the pregnant woman expects delivery in the ninth month,
then every child of God must give birth to a miracle, (an answer to prayer in the ninth month.) In other words, this month is seen as a prophetic month according to the revelation the Lord gave him.
The vision became progressive and held its first of such gathering at Christian Faith Ministries Church in Philadelphia, and had Bishop Nicholas
and Francisca Duncan Williams as the first speakers. This yearly conference has been held in Accra Ghana, and has featured key note preachers like Bishop James K. Saah,
Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, Rev. Clive Mould, Rev. Ebenezer Markwei, Ms. Joyce Aryee and many others.
Each year, September to Remember births many outstanding testimonies to the Glory of God.
However, the Man of God feels a greater burden for God’s people who go to church everyday but really have no tangible evidence to show.
He also sees that because people lack knowledge, they have been dragged back in their spiritual life, and that affected their socio-economic life-style. Unproductivity is seen in
many circles of life. Resolutions are made at the beginning of each year but not followed with practicality. Therefore, the Conference seeks to address not only the
spiritual needs of people but also their Health (how to eat right), Marriage (choosing a partner and making marriages work), Financial empowerment, Civic responsibilities,
how to establish and manage one’s own business, informing the youth about the ICT world, etc. Institutions, Organizations and Personalities have been invited to share and
impact knowledge to the benefit of the participants; ie: Legacy & Legacy, Ghana Education Service, Food and Drug Board, KOSMOS Energy, Chieftaincy & Culture, and several others in the Business world and private sector.
