The Tema Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Emmanuel Ofei Ankra-Badu, has visited a family in Great Ningo District whose house was recently razed down by fire, and lost all their property.
According to the Area Head, who was accompanied by the Area Secretary, Pastor Alex Nana Kwame Oppong, the visit was to commiserate with the affected family, pray with them, and have first-hand information about the unfortunate incident.
Narrating the unfortunate incident, Deaconess Doris Narh, who is the District Women’s Leader of Great Ningo District, said she left home for Old Ningo to attend to some family business. She received calls at about 1:00 pm that there was a fire outbreak in her home, so she rushed home. Upon reaching the scene, she found a big crowd had gathered around the house, all making frantic efforts to help control the raging fire.
By the grace of God, personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service managed to bring the fire under control, but almost everything in the house got burnt.
Deaconess Doris Narh was very appreciative to God that no life was lost in the inferno although all their possessions in the house got burned. Surprisingly, she said, none of the 12-member occupants, comprising her husband and children, was at home when the incident took place.
Apostle Ankra-Badu thanked God for their lives and encouraged the family to keep on serving God faithfully just as Job did.
The Area Head, on behalf of the Tema Area, presented a bag full of clothing and an unspecified amount of money to the family.
Pastor Alex Nana Kwame Oppong who happened to be a former District Pastor of Great Ningo, led the team to pray intensively for the family that the Lord shall restore their fortunes.
