Effiduase Area Womens

Effiduase Area Women’s Ministry Honours Past Leaders

A special service has been held by the Effiduase Area Women’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost to appreciate the immediate past Area Executive Committee Members of the ministry.

The service, which took place at Ebenezer Assembly, Effiduase on Tuesday, May 25, drew women from all the 15 districts of the Area.

The former women leaders were Deaconesses Elizabeth Adoboah (Area Leader), Martha Adobea (Assistant Area Leader), Christiana Obenewaah (Area Secretary), Grace Mbir (Treasurer) and Cecilia Aboagye (Financial Secretary). The rest were Mrs. Dora Oppong Kyeremah (Pastors’ Wives Representative), and Deaconess Contance Ofosua – Co-opted member.

In his exhortation titled, “Be Sure To Complete The Work You Received From The Lord,” the Area Head, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful, admonished Christians not to avoid God’s calling and work, but rather accept it wholeheartedly and do it well.

Quoting Philippians 1:2; Colossians 4:17 and Matthew 25:14-23, Apostle Nsaful said that the reason why some Christians abandon God’s work is that they grow weary, become fed-up, go after things of the world, or simply allow the work to slip through their hands.

On how to complete God’s work well, the Effiduase Area Head said: “You need to be diligent, steadfast and immovable.”

Concluding his exhortation, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful paid glowing tribute to the past leaders for laying a good foundation as pioneers of the Area Women’s Ministry and asked for God’s blessings upon them.

In a testimony, the current Area Women’s Leader, Deaconess Christiana Obenewaa, said that her predecessors achieved a lot for the newly created Effiduase Area. Notable among their achievements, she said, was the construction and furnishing of an ultra-modern kitchen at the Area Mission House.

She also praised them for the many talk shows they organised for the women in the Area, their visits to the various districts, and their collaboration with PEMEM and other ministries of the church, among others.

Citations and an unspecified amount of money were presented to the outgone executives for their services to the church.

In attendance was the wife of the Area Head, Mrs. Mary Nsaful; the Area pastorate, family members of the outgone executives, among others.

Savings, A Necessary Tool To Wealth Creation – Deaconess Belinda Beatrice Asare

The La Area Virtuous Ladies Coordinator of The Church of Pentecost, Deaconess Belinda Beatrice Asamoah Asare, has charged Christian ladies to intentionally and consciously save and invest to secure their future in this changing world.

She made the call during the La Area Virtuous Ladies meeting held at Dr. Thomas Wyatt Temple, on Saturday, April 24, 2021, on the theme: “The Virtuous Lady in a Changing World – A study on Financial and Wealth Creation.”

In her presentation, and with scriptural references to Matthew 6:33; and Jeremiah 9:12-15; Deaconess Belinda Beatrice Asamoah Asare said that for women to succeed in their financial and wealth creation, they must be prepared to follow certain principles, first of which is to put God first in all that they do, by daily communing with Him.

Reading from Proverbs Chapter 31, she underscored the need for ladies to consciously save, invest, and be financially independent to secure their future in times of crises. Like the virtuous woman in the Bible, virtuous ladies must be hardworking, reliable, problem solvers, result-oriented, and achievers, she added.

Deaconess Belinda Beatrice Asare noted that savings is the basic root of wealth creation. According to her, at least 10 to 20 percent of one’s total monthly income must be saved for future purposes.

“The current state of the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic is a sign of unpredictable future occurrences, and that calls for proper planning,” she indicated.

She advised women to stop impulse buying, and learn to say “No,” to external pressures and extended families, saying, “Have a budget for yourself and your family.”

She further admonished them to invest in themselves. “Seek knowledge; empower yourself in education, trade, and or apprenticeship programmes to help sustain you in future,” she said.

In attendance were the La Area Head and his wife, Apostle John and Mrs. Mary Osei Amaniampong; the Area Women’s Ministry Executives led by Deaconess Georgina Zekpa, and some wives of ministers in the Area.

Be Committed To The Things Of God 01

“Be Committed To The Things Of God” – Mrs. Felicia Broohm Urges Women Leaders

The Teshie-Nungua Area Women’s Ministry has held a prayer meeting at the Agnes Boahemaa Gyimah Memorial Temple at Nungua, Accra, on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

The participants, mainly executives of the ministry from the local, district, and Area levels, as well as all deaconesses and wives of officers, were drawn from the 26 districts of the Area.

Speaking on the topic, “Commitment” the wife of the Coco Beach District Minister of the church, Mrs. Felicia Broohm, encouraged the women to develop a deep love and commitment towards the work of the ministry and the church at large.

Using the story of Ruth in the book of Ruth 1:16-17, she urged women leaders to develop the commitment that Ruth had towards her mother-in-law Naomi which made her follow her irrespective of what the outcome may be.

“We should be ready to be committed to the Lord in all circumstances whether we get our problems solved or not,” she said, adding, “Ruth was ready to follow Naomi even if it meant she would not marry again.”

She observed that sometimes when ministry leaders are changed, people get hurt and change their attitude; “Outgoing women leaders should not attempt to sabotage the work of incoming executives or sit aloof as if they are not concerned about what is happening in the ministry,” she said.

She urged deaconesses, officers’ wives, and ministry leaders to adopt a serving spirit and not to relegate service at the house of God to the background. As women leaders, it is our duty to clean the churches and make sure that people are comfortable in the house of God, she stated.

“These days, our deaconesses appear tired and are not participating in the cleaning services,” Mrs. Broohm said, adding, “Let’s try as much as possible to play our role. We must work if we want our rewards.

“When we were new on the job, we worked with all our hearts but now it appears our love has grown cold. Let us wake up to our responsibilities as women leaders and support the church for greater growth.”

Mrs. Broohm further admonished them to desist from showing church members the way to prayer centres where they believe they can get quick solutions to their physical and spiritual problems, but rather lead them to the church.

“How can you leave our great God and pursue others for solutions? God is in our churches and is ready to solve our problems, we only have to keep on fasting and praying,” she said.

The prayer meeting was organised by the leadership of the Area Women’s Ministry.

The Area Women’s Leader, Deaconess Sophia Nana Arthur, was grateful to the women for participating in the prayers in their numbers.

La Area Women’s Ministry Holds Thanksgiving Service

The La Area Women’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost has held an annual thanksgiving service to celebrate the goodness and faithfulness of God over their lives and families.

The event which took place at the Dr Thomas Wyatt Auditorium in Accra on January 14, 2021, had the wife of the General Secretary of the church, Mrs. Rose Dansoa Kumi-Larbi, as the main speaker.

In a presentation, Mrs. Kumi-Larbi advised Christians to be thankful to God at all times and celebrate His goodness, both in season and out of season.

She noted that showing gratitude to God is supposed to be a lifestyle of every Christian. “It should not be a one-day show-off or only at church meetings. Rather, it should be a regular practice where members are grateful at any point in time of their lives; for that is the true and acceptable worship to God,” she stated.

Reading from Ephesians 5: 20, she charged Christian women to thank God because He has the bigger picture of each individual’s lives. “It is God alone who knows who should live, and who should die,” she revealed.

The General Secretary’s wife noted that when Christians thank God, especially in difficult moments, it shows how much faith they have in God.

Also quoting from Psalm 138: 1-8, she indicated that David was in great distress at the time he wrote the psalm. She said that although things were not working in his favour, he still deemed it fit to thank God, saying, “David remembered and considered all the love, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness God had shown him in the past, with the hope that He can and would take care of his present, as well as his future troubles and fears.”

Mrs. Rose Kumi-Larbi reiterated that when believers cry out to God in praise in their distress moments, God gives them courage and strength to sail through to victory. “You don’t praise and thank God only when all is well with you. We must also praise God in tough times, and even for the fact that He has preserved your life throughout the period,” she noted.

According to her, just as David was thankful to God at all times, believers should equally thank God in the market, home, office, church, etc. “Let’s also thank God for His love, forgiveness of sins, and His word which guides our steps each day,” she stressed.

Concluding her message, Mrs. Rose Kumi-Larbi advised believers to always thank God for His promises and assurances of eternal life and glory in His word.

In attendance were the La Area Head, Apostle John Osei Amaniampong, the Area Women’s Leader, Deaconess Georgina Zepah, and her team, among others.
