Children Are A Blessing; Treat Them Well – Professor Ellis

The Children’s Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Prof. William Otoo Ellis, has advised Christian parents to take proper care of their children in order to appropriate the blessings of God that come with parenting.

“Children are like arrows; if you treat them well, you become a powerful warrior. So, we (parents) can only become powerful if we appropriate the blessings of God the children carry by helping them serve God right from their infancy,” he said.

The Children’s Director said this at the dedication ceremony for the newly-constructed Children’s Auditorium of the Toflokpo Central Assembly last Sunday. 

Speaking on the topic Children: Our Heritage from the Lord, based on Psalm 127: 3-4 and Matthew 18:1-6, Pastor Ellis asserted that children carry the blessing of God.

He, therefore, implored parents, the community and Church to count themselves blessed to have them and accept the responsibility of taking good care of them.

Professor Ellis bemoaned the unpleasant situation where some mature members and church leaders reject or ignore the call to become Children Ministry teachers.

“Let us not leave the children alone to do their own things. Parents should help the Sunday School teachers to take proper care of the Children Ministry,” he charged.

Professor Ellis also advised church leaders to do well to provide suitable places of worship for the children and not to take them for granted.

The children’s auditorium was singlehandedly constructed by the Toflokpo District Minister, Pastor Dickson Baidoo and his wife, Dora, who in obedience to a divine directive put up the facility for the children.

The beautiful edifice, which was constructed at a total cost of GHS 125,000.00, was dedicated by Apostle Emmanuel O. Ankra-Badu (Tema Area Head), with assistance from Evangelist Ohene-Asa Otu (Sefwi-Juaboso Area Head) and the Children’s Ministry Director.

Also present at the colourful event were ministers and wives in the Tema Area, traditional leaders, as well as the officers and members of the Toflokpo District and other nearby districts.
