Tarkwa Area Dedicates Baptistery For Ghana Prisons Service

The Tarkwa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Daniel Okyere Walker, on Thursday, January 28, 2021, dedicated a baptistery worth more than GH¢ 10,000.00 at the Tarkwa Prisons.

The project, financed by the Tarkwa Area Deacon of the church, Elder John Arthur, and his wife Jane, also saw the painting of the entire prison’s facility.

In an interview with Pentecost News, the Tarkwa Area Prisons Committee Chairman, Pastor Charles Owusu Mpiani, indicated that the baptistery was a needed tool for promoting the church’s evangelistic activities in the prisons since it will provide a readily available place to baptise inmates who give their lives to Jesus Christ.

Apostle Dr. Walker assured the authorities of the church’s continued support towards the upkeep of the inmates and the Ghana Prisons Service.

The Officer-In-Charge (OIC) of the Tarkwa Prisons, Kwaku Ababio Ali, on behalf of the Ghana Prisons Service and the inmates, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the leadership of The Church of Pentecost and the financiers, Elder John and Mrs. Jane Arthur for the gesture.

As part of the commissioning ceremony, the Area also presented assorted items worth over GH¢ 2,000.00 to the Prisons.

The items included tissue papers, liquid soaps, toiletries, cartoons of bottled water, detergents, among several others.

The dedication of the baptistry and the donation were done at the sidelines of the 2021 Western Regional Ministers and Wives’ Conference which took place at the E. K. Kyei Memorial Temple, Tarkwa.

Present to assist Apostle Dr. Walker, who is an Executive Council Member and Chairman of the Western Regional Coordinating Committee, were the Area Heads from the Western and Western North regions.

They are Apostle Joseph Kwame Assabil (Takoradi Area Head), Apostle Daniel Kodjoe Sey (Sekondi Area Head), Apostle Emmanuel Kwasi Osei Ofosu (Sefwi Bekwai Area Head), Apostle Philip Osei Korsah (Axim Area Head), Apostle Robert Kwabena Andoh (Essam-Debiso Area) and their wives.
