The Church Of Pentecost Women’s Ministry Shows Love To Muslims

The Akosombo New Combine District Women’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost presented hampers containing assorted soft drinks to all Imams in the Akosombo municipality during the celebration of this year’s Eid-Ul-Fitr.

All nine Imams in charge of the various mosques in the municipality, including the Chief Imam of Akosombo, Alhaji Is Ma, who is also the Deputy Chief Imam for Asuogyaman District, benefited from the gesture.

During the presentation, the wife of the district minister, Mrs Esther Kesse, who led the team, gave a short Gospel message based on ‘Jesus Christ as the true Messiah.’

She said that Quran Chapter 3 verse 45 presents Jesus Christ as The Messiah, who was honoured in this world and the next world to come, whilst the Bible in Mark 14:61-62 declares Jesus Christ as the Messiah, making Christ the Messiah accepted by both Christian and Muslim religions.

According to her, it is only Jesus Christ who has been accredited by God to save humanity from the dark world to God’s kingdom of light, and that if someone is looking for a saviour then Jesus is the right source.

Mrs Esther Kesse advised the gathering to think about how they can join hands to embark on strategic societal impactful projects in the area. She noted that projects like entrepreneurship, environmental awareness and educational programmes can be jointly organised to positively impact society.

In response, the Chief Imam of Akosombo, Alhaji Is Ma, thanked The Church of Pentecost, New Combine District for the wonderful love shown to the Imams.

He observed that the strong relationship that has been established between The Church of Pentecost and Muslims in Akosombo will surely impact positively.

‘For a women’s fellowship of a church to show us this kindness is first in history in Akosombo since 1974,’ he said.

Alhaji Is Ma assured the church that they are ever ready to partner with the church to undertake projects that are geared towards the development of the community.

The imams also commended the church for the weekly Gospel messages they share on the local information centres every Tuesday and Wednesday. They encouraged Muslims in the community to continue to follow and listen to the sermons to guard their lives.
