The Lassia Tuolu District in Wa Area of The Church of Pentecost has organised an end-year-year dinner for 90 members in the district who are orphans and widows, and others who are not members of the church.
The event, an initiative of the District Minister, Overseer Samuel Yeboah Asare, and his wife Eunice, took place on December 27, 2016, and drew participants from 18 assemblies in the district.
Gifts such as clothes, footwear and church souvenirs were also presented to the orphans and widows by Mrs. Eunice Yeboah Asare, who was touched by their plight.
According to the District Minister, he and his wife took inspiration from what the Bible teaches about the vulnerable in society, and also a book authored by the Chairman, Apostle Prof Opoku Onyinah, on Worship to put together the programme.
Quoting from 1 Timothy, Overseer Asare said Christ mandates believers to care for the needy, especially widows and orphans, saying, “It is our social responsibility to properly care for children who have lost their parents and help direct them in the way of the Lord so they do not go wayward.”
The occasion was used to encourage and motivate the participants to continue to depend on the Lord and never look back.
The widows shared their experiences with one another and their specific needs which were attended to. They were appreciative of the kind gesture shown to them by the wife of the District Minister.
Present at the occasion were Overseer Anaclax Myango (a Ministerial Student at the Pentecost Theological Seminary from Uganda), and members of the District Executive Committee.
