Effiduase Area Undertakes Tree-Planting Exercise

The Effiduase Area of The Church of Pentecost, on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, embarked on a tree-planting exercise aimed at planting over 14,000 trees in the Area.

The event, which was in line with the 1 million tree-planting project of the church, was held at the forecourt of the Ebenezer Assembly church auditorium.

Speaking at a short ceremony to launch the exercise, the Effiduase Area Head, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful, said that tree-planting is part of the environmental care campaign of the church as enshrined in the five-year strategic vision, dubbed: “Vision 2023: Possessing the Nations.”

“In possessing the nations, there is the need to protect the natural resources God has endowed us with,” he said.

He noted that in previous environmental care campaigns, the church undertook clean up exercises across the nation, but has decided to support the efforts of the government to improve the depleting forest cover of the country.

Touching on the benefits of trees, Apostle Nsaful said trees serve as windbreaks, give shade from the scorching sun, and make the environment beautiful. 

He noted that, as part of the exercise, trees would be planted in all mission houses, church premises, residences of members, as well as other parts of the community with the approval of the District Assembly.

He disclosed that some members have been supplied with seedlings at their request to plant in their homes. He urged them to also take good care of them by watering and protecting them from animals till they attain maturity.

The event ended with Apostle Nsaful planting a tree to kickstart the exercise in the Area. The wife of the Area Head, Mrs. Mary Nsaful, and some ministers and officers of the church present at the event, also took their turn.
