“The Church Of Pentecost Never Turned Her Back On Me” – A Scholarship Beneficiary Shares

I am Seth Kwame Baidoo from Dixcove in the Western Region of Ghana. I am the fourth of my parent’s six children.

I completed Senior High School in 2017 at Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS) by the grace of God, despite my parents separating when I was in my first year, and my mother suffering an accident that resulted in a fractured waist bone.

Due to the financial challenges my family faced, a teacher named Mr. Ghartey at GSTS paid the rest of my school fees, with additional support from my friend, Patrick Tabiri Ameyaw.

After school, I moved to Kumasi to hawk pure water on the streets of Adum Kumasi. Life became extremely difficult, but I still had my education in mind. I returned home to seek help to further my education but found none.

One day, while helping my mother cook, the then Dixcove District Minister, Pastor Isaac Ayiku Quarshie, paid us a visit. During our interaction he invited me to fellowship with The Church of Pentecost. I quickly obliged and shared my educational aspirations with him. He introduced me to the Pentecost Educational Scholarship Scheme (PESS) funded by The Church of Pentecost Headquarters. Unfortunately, he was transferred after a few months, even before the scholarship process could go through.

When Pastor Christian Asiedu Budu took over as the District Minister, he continued where Pastor Ayiku left off, and through him, my scholarship was granted in 2019. I started school at Pentecost University as a theology student, making me the only one out of six siblings to pursue higher education.

In 2020, the then Area Secretary, Pastor Charles Arthur, advised me to change my program to a more career-oriented one to better position me in the job market after school. Taking his advice, I decided to study nursing, although I still aspire to lecture someday.

Today, I am in my final year as a nursing student at Pentecost University. The Church has never turned her back on me from 2019 to 2024. I can not thank God and the Church enough for who I am today.

May the Good Lord continue to bless and uplift The Church of Pentecost
