To support the spiritual growth of the children, the ministry also gave out 250 copies of Bibles and 900 copiesofDevotional Guide.
According to the Director, Apostle Fred Tiakor, the donation, which is an annual ritual of the ministry, was also meant to celebrate the thriving relationship between the ministry and the SOS organisation.
The items and amount of donation worth GH¢68,512.31, was received by a representative of SOS Villages Ghana.
Speaking at the brief ceremony held for the donation, National Director for SOS Ghana, Alexander Mark Kekula expressed heartfelt appreciation to The Church of Pentecost for her continued support over the years.
He said that since 2014 when the relationship between both parties was first established, the Children’s Ministry annually donates to all four branches of SOS Villages across Ghana to aid the welfare of children and help run their activities.
The church’s support is, however, not limited to financial aid but also extends to meet the spiritual needs of the children.
The ministry has also adopted houses in all the SOS Villages and periodically runs services at the premise for children in the house and for all who are willing to attend.
Speaking to PENTECOST NEWS in an interview after the event, Apostle Fred Tiakor said these initiatives undertaken by the ministry are inspired by the vision of the church to evangelise, mentor and groom children holistically. He also disclosed that the Church has plans of establishing a Local Assembly in the SOS villages to enhance fellowship.
The Director took the opportunity to visit the church’s adopted house at the SOS Children’s Village in Tema. He was accompanied by some of the Tema Area Children’s Ministry Executive Members.
