The Assakae District Women’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost has donated items worth over GHS 5,000.00 to the Catholic Special Vocational School at Fijai in the Western Region of Ghana as part of this year’s weeklong National Women’s Ministry celebration.
The items, which include mini bags of rice, toiletries, sanitary pads, bars of soap, bags of rice, sugar, Gari, loaves of bread, a mini bag of powdered pepper, crates of eggs, washing powder, Dettol, Fante kenkey, tissue papers, cooking oil, soft drinks, packs of bottled water, and a water closet seat, among others, were presented to the Headmistress of the school, Mrs Rose Kwofie, on Sunday, May 1, 2022, during a short presentation ceremony at the school premises.
Presenting the items on behalf of the ministry, the District Women’s Leader, Deaconess Lydia Acquah, indicated that as women in the church, they have been equipped to show love and care to the needy and less privileged.
“It is our responsibility as Christian women to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ by sharing what we have with the needy and less privileged to ignite hope and joy in them as our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ would have done if He were here,” she affirmed.
The Assakae District Minister, Pastor Ernest Perbi-Asare, took the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the students, parents and staff present and challenged them to rely on God to constantly meet their needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus.
Mr. Eric Adu, the Assistant Headmaster, commended the Women’s Ministry for the donation describing it as “very timely,” and appealed to other Christian organisations to emulate their gesture.
In attendance were Deaconess Gladys Yankey (District Assistant Women’s Leader), Deaconess Genevieve Tuckson (District Women’s Secretary), Deaconess Vivian Dora Koramah Marfo (District Women’s Finance Secretary), other ministry executive committee members, officers and members of the Church.
