The Chronicler sees every event as important because an event leads to another event, making history to run endlessly as a waterfall. At Asamankese, the Holy Spirit in His wisdom turned African events into a Christian Church for Africans. That Christ the  healer, deliverer, peace- maker, friend of the poor and the marginalized is made relevant to the African context (a context which is characterized by poverty, injustice, disease, sicknesses, oppression, and marginalization of women). The Christ Apostolic Church International was born and nurtured out of the sequence of events and activities which started with Apostle Peter Newman Anim.
