The Twifo Bimpong-Egya District Minister of The Church of Pentecost in Twifo Praso Area, Pastor Abraham Gyabaah, and his wife Evelyn have feted 46 widows in the district.
During the maiden event which took place on December 29, 2021, at the Twifo Bimpong-Egya Central Auditorium, Pastor Gyabaah said that the occasion was to enable the widows to experience the joy of Christmas.
He encouraged them to focus more on Christ by placing their trust in Him and relying solely on Him while reflecting on Matthew 6:25-33. He said it is not difficult for God to provide for His children.
Pastor Gyabaah emphasized that despite the various challenges in widowhood, God is always ready to supply and provide for the needs of His children as he shared the story of his mum, a widow to encourage them.
“I understand your challenges as widows, because my mother is also a widow. She lost her husband (my father) when I was a little boy. She went through a lot of challenges such as financial hardships, loneliness and psychological instability for some time, but thank God He has been able to sustain her and her children,” he said while encouraging them to engage in activities that will make them profitable and economically sound.
Deaconess Abigail Koi-Larbi, the Twifo Praso Area Women’s Ministry Leader, advising the widows, asked them to cast their burdens unto God through prayer, faithful service and believing in His Word.
As part of the event, the widows were given free medical screening and half pieces of clothes each, among other packages.
In a heartfelt appreciation, the widows expressed their gratitude to Pastor Abraham and Mrs. Evelyn Gyabaah, and Deaconess Abigail Koi-Larbi for the kind gesture.
Also, joining in the celebration were some District Executive Committee Members and District Women’s Ministry Executives.
