The Women and Children ministries of A-Lang Worship Centre (ALWC) in the Odorkor Area of The Church of Pentecost have donated some items worth GH₵5,145.50 to the Nyame Dua Christian Home, an orphanage located at Madina, Accra.
The items, which included 15 bags of rice, detergents, diapers, baby food and wipes, drinks, cooking oil, sachet and bottled water, towels, tinned tomatoes, among others were donated during a visit to the orphanage on Monday, May 3, 2021.
The church delegation was led by Elder Ernest Asinor, the Presiding Elder of the Local Assembly; Mrs. Olivia Tsekpoe, wife of the Resident Minister; and Deaconess Theresah Boampong, the District Women’s Ministry Leader.
Other members of the team were the Assistant District Children’s Ministry Leader, Ruth Quainoo, and Deaconess Nora Amaning, the Local Assembly Women’s Ministry Leader.
The team was warmly received on arrival by the founder of the Home, Mr. Paul Anaba, and the 39 children of the Home, including two three-month-old babies.
Addressing the gathering, Mrs Tsekpoe quoted James 1:27 (Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world) to stress the need for Christians to reach out to orphans and other destitute groups in society. She said that the visit was in line with the church’s “Possessing the Nations” agenda and is also in fulfilment of the aforementioned scripture.
Elder Asinor, on his part, encouraged the children to pray at all times and never give up for God has a purpose for their individual lives. He advised them not to forget their humble roots when the Lord blesses them in their adult life, saying, “You should always remember your home, where you come from.”
Deaconess Nora Amaning advised the children not to look down on themselves, while Ruth Quainoo urged them to be obedient, humble, and respectful.
Receiving the items on behalf of the children, Mr Anaba said that he has always prayed to the Lord for the Home to attract the attention and benevolence of The Church of Pentecost, and was, therefore, very grateful to the Lord for an answered prayer.
He thanked the church for the kind and timely gesture.
The team also refreshed the children with “Sobolo” drinks and pastries.
