The Ablekuma Agape District of The Church of Pentecost in Anyaa-Ablekuma Area, in partnership with Ablekuma Pentecost Prayer Centre, has donated assorted items worth about GHS12,000.00 to the Nsawam Female Prisons.
The gesture, which took place on Monday, April 18, 2022, was in line with the scriptures, where Jesus admonished His followers to show love to all persons, especially the vulnerable such as the sick, poor, destitute, prisoners, and the likes.
The assorted items included drugs of different kinds meant to cure different ailments, rice, sugar, assorted soap, toiletries, slippers, and many others.
Speaking to the Prisons Officers during the presentation, the Ablekuma Agape District Minister of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Frank Awuah Fordjour, explained that the gesture was a way of showing love to the female inmates.
“It is something the church does every year to show love to humanity, especially prisoners and other vulnerable ones. We are not only supporting them in prayers, but also in kind,” he said.
Pastor Awuah commended the officers and inmates of the facility for keeping the place tidy.
“The place is kept very neat, especially the compound and their place of worship. The only challenge was their kitchen; they need a new one. I’m, therefore, pleading that anyone who is blessed and can assist in putting the kitchen in good shape should kindly do so as urgently as possible, and the Lord will bless him/her,” he pleaded.
The Ablekuma Pentecost Prayer Camp Leader, Elder Thomas Ansong, on his part, said that the female inmates need a lot to make their stay over there a bit more comfortable.
“Getting the opportunity to visit some of the officers’ offices, we realised that they lack furniture, especially tables and chairs. I will therefore plead that we help them with new furniture to ease their work. Again, other items such as clothes, food items, soaps, and anything that can help their stay can be given to them,” he stressed.
The Church of Pentecost Prisons Ministry National Executive Member, Elder Albert Narh, on his part, commended the Ablekuma Prayer Centre and the Agape District for their kind gesture.
He also urged individuals and institutions who can afford to show their love to the inmates.
The Officers expressed their appreciation and gratitude to the church, especially Ablekuma Agape District and the Ablekuma Pentecost Prayer Centre for their consistent support for the Nsawam Prisons.
