In line with the ‘Possessing the Nations’ agenda, Pentecost International Worship Centre in the Takoradi Area of the church (PIWC-Takoradi) collaborated with the Aboade District to organise a medical outreach at Ayiem, a community in the Western Region of Ghana.
The event, which took place on Saturday, 28th August 2021, yielded 56 souls to the glory of God.
A team of health professionals from PIWC-Takoradi, consisting of medical doctors, dentists, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurses, midwives, opticians, laboratory scientists and pharmacy technicians, took part in the exercise. There was also a prayer team and Evangelism/Counselling team on-site to attend to the patrons.
During the exercise, patrons had their vitals checked by the nurses and midwives and also received medical advice and treatment on general medical concerns, eye conditions, ENT and antenatal issues as well as breast screening.
At the end of the event, a total of GH¢ 20,000.00 worth of drugs were dispensed to the 315 residents who received treatment for various ailments. The drugs were received through the benevolence of some pharmaceutical companies in the country.
Prayer and deliverance sessions were organised for the sick and people who had spiritually related issues. The 56 converts were handed over to Aboade District through the district minister, Pastor David A. Boadi-Mensah, to aid their spiritual development and growth in their newfound faith. The team of counsellors, on their part, took the personal details of the new converts to follow up on them, disciple them and get them baptised.
PIWC-Takoradi also donated 50 plastic chairs to the Ayiem Assembly of the Aboade District to be used for church services.
In an interview with PENTECOST NEWS after the event, Resident Minister of PIWC-Takoradi, Pastor Daniel Okyei Boakye, expressed satisfaction that the church had been able to reach out to the health needs of the people of Ayiem and also shared with them the gospel message of the Lord Jesus Christ. He also hinted at the church’s plan to reach out to similar communities in the Takoradi Area in the future.
