The Old Tafo Area Women’s Ministry led 150 female students of the School for the Deaf at Jamasi, Ashanti Region, to accept Jesus as their Lord and personal Saviour during a visit to the school on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.
The ministry observed this year’s International Day for the Girl-Child by donating items such as books, underwear, detergents, food items, toiletries and sanitary pads worth GHC 5,000.00 to support the school.
Led by the Area Women’s Ministry Leader, Mrs. Mavis Addai, and Mrs Theresa Owusua Anank (Women’s Ministry Area Executive Committee Member), the church delegation was received by the Headmistress of the school, Madam Vida Aidoo.
Deaconess Mavis Addai spoke to the students through an interpreter on their importance to the nation, the society and home. She introduced the students to Christ Jesus and the need for them to abide in Him as youth to lead purposeful lives.
Using biblical Esther as case study, the Women’s Ministry Leader encouraged the students not to look down on themselves due to their disability but trust that God has a purpose for them.
An altar call by Mrs. Theresa Anank after the sermonette saw 150 of them surrendering their lives to Christ Jesus.
The Headmistress of the School, Madam Vida Aidoo, on behalf of staff and students of the school, expressed gratitude to The Church of Pentecost, the leadership of the Old Tafo Area and Area Women’s Ministry for the kind gesture.
She outlined a few challenges facing the school and revealed that their buildings have become dilapidated after 42 years of its existence. She called on the public for support in renovating the building as well as food items to aid school’s operations.
