Twenty persons, including the Chief of Sefwi Anwhiaso, surrendered their lives to Christ during a medical outreach held last Saturday at the Nkwanta Central Assembly church auditorium.
The exercise was held to climax the “Sefwi Nkwanta for Christ” crusade jointly organised by the Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost and the Nkwanta District in the Sefwi Bekwai Area of the Church.
Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS on the sidelines of the event, Elder Dr. Ken Aboah, a member of the Evangelism Ministry National Executive Committee of The Church of Pentecost and head of the ministry’s medical team, said that the ministry always climaxes its crusades with a medical outreach because healing is part of the gift of salvation.
According to him, the exercise is modelled after the ministry of Jesus, who preached the gospel and also healed his hearers of their diseases.
“We strongly believe that Jesus healed more diseases than any medical doctor on earth,” he said.
Dr. Aboah further explained that, unlike other medical outreaches, the evangelism team adopts a holistic approach to organising such exercises.
“The human being is made up of the body, soul and spirit, but most medical outreaches focus on the body and the soul and leave out the spirit. However, with our approach, we move beyond the two and always administer the message of salvation to the spirit. In this way, all the components of the human being benefit from the exercise,” he said.
The medical outreach, which was organised in partnership with the Jubilee Hospital at Anhwiaso, was patronised by over 300 residents of Sefwi Nkwanta and other surrounding communities.
The medical screening and medication covered various diseases and conditions, including malaria, blood pressure, blood sugar, typhoid, and hepatitis.
