One hundred and eighty pupils of the Maase Brofoyedru R/C Primary School have accepted Jesus as their Lord and personal Saviour following an aggressive evangelism exercise embarked upon by the Women’s Ministry of Maase District in the Old Tafo Area of The Church of Pentecost on Thursday, November 3, 2022.
The women also presented gifts to the school worth GHC 2,500, including 70 pieces of Gideons International Bibles to enhance their spiritual growth in Christ Jesus.
As the Month of November has been designated for aggressive evangelism in The Church of Pentecost, with the various ministries mandated to boldly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to save the lost, the Maase Women’s Ministry was at the Maase Brofoyedru R/C Primary School.
Mrs. Theresa Owusuaa Anank, the wife of the district minister, preaching on the theme: “For God so love the World” based on John 3:16, expounded God’s affection towards humanity regardless of their sinful acts. She gave reasons why Jesus came to the world and the significance of believing in the Son of God as one’s Lord and personal Saviour – even as a child.
An altar call made after the sermonette saw 180 pupils surrendering their lives to Christ Jesus, including a boy named Christian, who lives with his grandfather, a fetish priest – he declared his disaffection for idol worship as the women prayed for him.
Mrs. Anank was grateful to God for directing them to the school to fulfil such a divine mandate and assured that schools at Maase and its surrounding communities would have a share of the evangelism month.
The Headmistress of the School, Miss Ruth Appiah Mensah, appreciated The Church of Pentecost for the visit and the gifts. She outlined a few challenges facing the school and called for support.
