PIWC-Sakumono Women’s Ministry Visits New Life Orphanage

The Women’s Ministry of Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC), Sakumono, as part of the activities marking the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, has visited the New Life Orphanage at Nungua, Accra to put smiles on the faces of the inmates.

Items worth about GHS 12,000.00 and a cash donation of GHS 2,000.00 were donated to the Home during the visit which took place on Saturday, December 18, 2021.

The items donated included bags of rice, breakfast cereals, buckets, assorted drinks, biscuits, bottled water, cooking oil, clothes, and shoes. Others were toilet rolls, sanitary pads, baby diapers, among others.

As part of the visit, members of the ministry fellowshipped with the inmates. In an exhortation, the wife of the Resident Minister for PIWC-Sakumono, Mrs. Eunice Owusu Sekyere Kwarteng, quoted 2 Timothy 3:15 and Luke 2:52 and asked the children to read their Bibles and pray every day and strengthen themselves in the word of God.

“The mother of all mothers who caters for children is the Lord Jesus Christ,” she said and added: “Society may forget about you but our Lord Jesus Christ will remember you. Therefore, take the word of God seriously and grow in it.” 

She prayed the favour of God upon their lives, and an excellent spirit for them to learn and be obedient to the mothers of the Home.

Presenting the items on behalf of the ministry, the Women’s Ministry Leader for PIWC-Sakumono, Deaconess Isabella Orhin, said the ministry was touched by the plight of the children and wanted them to have a great Christmas.

“As Christians, we strongly believe that children are a gift from God and must have the right to live irrespective of the circumstances surrounding their gestation and birth,” she said.

Receiving the items, Nii Afotey Botwe II, the head of the Home, thanked the church for the kind gesture. He called on other churches to also come to their aid.

Currently, the orphanage houses 92 inmates, made up of teenagers and toddlers.
