The Sawla District of The Church of Pentecost has donated 197 Bibles and other Christian literature to the staff and pupils of the Pentecost Preparatory School (PPS), Sawla.
The donation was made on behalf of the District by the District Minister, Pastor Samuel Awuah, during a presentation ceremony at the school premises on Friday, May 19, 2023.
Speaking at the event, Pastor Awuah stated that the donation, which is in fulfillment of the Area’s “One Student, One Bible” initiative, was done in collaboration with the Sawla Area Children’s Ministry.
According to him, the project aims to provide every student in the Sawla Area with a Bible and, in doing so, help inculcate the habit of Bible reading among the young students who are the future leaders.
Pastor Awuah noted that the Church, through this project, has donated Bibles to all students from Basic 3 to JHS 3, with all teachers and other non-teaching staff also receiving a Bible each.
“So far, 35 students have made a decision for Christ to the glory of God,” he further noted.
The donation coincided with a visit by officials of the Samaritan’s Purse initiative to the school. The team also donated 150 gift boxes to the students.
Receiving the items on behalf of the students, the headteacher of the school thanked the Church and the Samaritan’s Purse team for their kind donation and support.
He also assured them that the donated items would be put to good use as intended.
Present at the presentation ceremony were Pastor Alex Nsiah, the Nakwabi District Minister and the Sawla Area Youth Ministry Leader, and Pastor Prince Kwesi Mensah, the Gbongbondouri District and the Area Coordinator for Ministry to Persons with Disabilities (MPWDs).
