The Schools Outreach Ministry (SOM) of the Kwadaso Area of The Church of Pentecost has donated 240 mathematical sets worth GHC 13,000.00 to final-year students in the area who are preparing to sit for 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) this month.
The church also donated 400 copies of the Holy Bible, devotional books to the candidates.
The donation was made at an orientation programme dubbed “Area Head’s Time With BECE Candidates” organised by the Kwadaso Area’s SOM leadership, headed by Deaconess Grace Ayensu. The event drew 764 candidates from the various districts in the area.
In his address, the Area Head, Apostle J. B. K. Tawiah, used the story of Daniel and his colleagues in Babylon (Daniel 2) as a case study to inspire the students to pursue excellence.
He advised the students to emulate Daniel and his friends by not defiling themselves through unacceptable means in an attempt to pass their exams, but rather be studious and work hard to achieve success.
According to Apostle Tawiah, Daniel and his colleagues succeeded because they were bold, disciplined, God-fearing, wise, and pursued excellence, among others.
“God’s favour was also upon them and that made a difference,” he said.
He, therefore, urged the students to put their trust in God and work hard so as to succeed in any endeavour.
The Kwadaso Area Head assured the students that God is with them and that He will continue to be with them even during the examination.
He also advised the candidates to always acknowledge God’s presence in their lives so that He gives them a better future.
The memorable event had in attendance five Examiners from the Santa Maria R/C School who engaged the students on how to prepare for exams in ICT, Mathematics, English, Social Studies and Twi.
Pastor Fred Appiah Baah, the Kwadaso Agric District Minister of The Church of Pentecost, also interacted with the students on how to answer French questions.
To the glory of God, six candidates surrender their lives to Christ at the event.
