Women’s Ministry Director Ends Wa Area Tour

Deaconess Philomina Mireku, Women’s Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, has ended her working visit to the Wa Area of the Church.

She was accompanied by Deaconess Vivian Amfo, Deputy Women’s Ministry Director, and Deaconess Evelyn Lang-na Mensah, Northern Representative on the National Executive Committee of the Women’s Ministry.

The meetings were zoned into five centres namely, Wa, Lassia, Nadowli, Lawra and Bulenga.

In a brief welcome address, Apostle Daniel Nii Tetteh Tackie, Wa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, stated: “Considering the number of administrative areas in Ghana, Wa Area of the church feels privileged to have been chosen by the Women’s Ministry Directorate for such a timely visit.” 

Speaking on the topic, “An Equipped Woman in Building a Healthy Family,” Deaconess Philomina Mireku, explained that Women’s Ministry meetings serve as equipping centres for the members.

Using Proverbs 14:1 and Proverbs 31:10ff as scripture references, she mentioned some of the factors for building a healthy family as the respect for their husbands and seeing them as the family heads; caring for their children and dependants; implementing morning devotions in the home, and being industrious women.

The Women’s Director admonished the women against indulging in quarrelsome conduct, laziness, and neglect of their children. She also advised them to eschew unhealthy comparisons in their families.

She added: “When women perform their roles adequately, the family becomes healthy and prosperous, members of the family relate better among themselves, the glory of God is exhibited in the home, and the Church grows.”

She encouraged the women to regularly undergo medical check-ups and pay attention to their health issues.

As part of the visit, district and local Women’s Ministry leaders were taken through training on squad formations, facilitated by Deaconesses Vivian Amfo, Deputy Women’s Ministry Director and Evelyn Lang-na Mensah.

A special award was presented to Deaconess Elizabeth Naaba, Presiding Deaconess of Bisikan Assembly, Bulenga District of The Church of Pentecost. She has served in the Women’s Ministry of the church since 2001 and has been instrumental in the establishment of the ministry in the district while training leaders.

Felicia Naah, Veronica Atta, Taanu Banye and Afia Saalifu, former Women’s Ministry Executives, were subsequently presented with awards for their contributions to the Women’s Ministry work in the Area.

The Wa Area Head of the church, Apostle Daniel Nii Tetteh Tackie, led the team to visit Deaconess Rose Kumah, a former Wa Area Women’s Leader, who is currently in her old age.

The Women’s Ministry Director and her team were also taken on tour for sight-seeing at the famous Royal Cosy Hills Safari at Jirapa, which is popularly known as ‘Jirapa Dubai’.
