The Virtuous Ladies Wing of The Church of Pentecost’s Women’s Ministry at Akosombo New Combine District has visited the Akuse Female Prisons and donated various items to the facility.
Items such as bags of rice, toilet paper, and detergents were donated to the inmates during the visit, which took place recently. The gesture was intended to help with the inmates’ maintenance.
Chief Superintendent Joyce Annor Owusu, the prison Officer-in-Charge, who accepted the items on behalf of the inmates, thanked the church for forming a wonderful group called the ‘Virtuous Ladies,’ which is made up of young and professional women in the church who are equipped to support society. She was very pleased with the donation.
During a conversation with the inmates, one of them revealed that she used to be a very stubborn lady who refused to listen to her mother’s and loved ones’ advice. According to her, she was a member of a male gang of armed robbers who went on a robbery spree one night and was arrested as a result.
She stated that she has been incarcerated for the past nine years. She lamented the fact that her daughter was now in senior high school and wondered how the young lady was paying her bills. She advised young ladies to take good care of themselves in order to avoid ending up in such life-altering situations
In a related development, the Virtuous Ladies of Akosombo New Combine District again conducted a school evangelism campaign at Tortibo D/A Junior High School, where 36 students gave their lives to Christ. (Tortibo is a suburb of Akosombo). The ladies gave new mathematical sets to all forty (40) students.
The Headmaster, Mr. Morrison Edem Tawiah, who received the items on behalf of the school, thanked the group for their generosity. He invited the Virtuous Ladies to visit and engage their female students once a month in order to instill their good character in the female students so that they, too, could become virtuous ladies.
