Raise The Next Generation To Go Far In Life — Mrs Nyamekye Charges Christian Women

The wife of the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Mrs Mary Nyamekye, has charged Christian women, particularly leaders, to intentionally identify children in the church and care for their spiritual, physical and material wellbeing to secure them a brighter future.

Speaking on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, at the La Area Women’s Ministry Joint Service held at the Dr Wyatt Worship Centre, Accra Newtown, to kick-start the 2024 Women’s Week celebration, Mrs Nyamekye admonished women to take their rightful positions in the church as mothers and builders of the next generation.

Present at the well-attended service were Apostle Dr Dieudonne Komla Nuekpe (La Area Head and Executive Council Member of the church) and his wife, Mrs Juanita Toffa-Nuekpe, the Area Women’s Ministry Executive Committee members as well as the La Area pastorate and their wives.

Speaking on the theme, ‘Women of God unleashed to transform their world with values and principles of the Kingdom of God,’ Mrs Nyamekye stated that Jesus’ death has brought believers from darkness into the light as found in 1 Peter 2:9-10.

Using herself as an example, she mentioned how, at her second station, a teacher named Maame Manubea (now 74 years old) became her second mother by supporting her with prayers, advice and her children’s academics. She has since been visiting them even up until now.

Mrs Nyamekye urged women to take active part in the activities of the church and get closer to their pastors in order to receive blessings and also engage in intercessory prayers for signs and wonders to follow.

She recounted how at the inception of the church, women helped to carry the travelling boxes of pastors, supported the church financially and served in the local church.

Using the Proverbs 31 woman as a model, Mrs Nyamekye encouraged women in the church to respect their husbands, take good care of their children, have a gentle spirit, dress decently and be mindful of their speech, both in public and at home as is found in Proverbs 31:26.

She admonished women not to neglect the home by reading the Bible with their children, telling them stories of old, teaching them how to dress properly.

This year’s bi-annual Women’s Ministry Week celebration will run from 7-12 May 2024.
