The New Tafo District of The Church of Pentecost has presented a deep freezer refrigerator to Madam Akosua Nyantakyiwaa, a Person with Disability (PWD) in the church to enable her to make ends meet.
The district has also granted two brilliant but needy students in the church scholarships to enable them to pursue their university education.
The package was presented to Madam Nyantakyiwaa on Sunday, December 6, 2020, at the M. K. Yeboah Temple.
According to the District Minister, Pastor Seth Dwamena Asante, Madam Akosua Nyantakyiwaa, a deaf-mute in the district, was given the support to empower her financially without inconveniences.
Elder David Kwadwo Amoako, the District Coordinator for the MPWD, said that the church seeks to reach out to all needy persons to raise them from destitution to be useful persons in the body of Christ.
“She is not the only one with disability, there are a few others. This is just the beginning of what we are doing. We want to extend our arms to all PWDs in the church to nurture them for Christ,” he said.
The eldest daughter of Madam Nyantakyiwaa, Akosua Akyiaa, expressed her sincere thanks to God and the church for coming to the aid of her mother with a life-transforming asset. She said the package will go a long way to expand her mother’s table-top trade.
“She used to have a small fridge for selling drinks to school children. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she is unable to sell again and she will really benefit from this asset,” she said, adding, “We are very grateful to The Church of Pentecost for this assistance. May the good Lord continue to bless this church to be able to reach out to others like my mother.”
Pastor Dwamena Asante revealed that sign languages will soon be employed in the church with disability-friendly facilities to make church service conducive for PWDs.
The Church of Pentecost’s commitment to possessing the nations as agents of transformation is not only about preaching the gospel message but assisting the underprivileged in society and extending the fellowship of Christ towards them.
The Ministry to Persons with Disabilities (MPWD) was established to build a strong ministry to PWDs through effective evangelism and discipleship, as well as create an enabling environment to promote their spiritual, emotional, and personal growth in order to impact the church, their communities, and the nations.
