The Women’s Ministry of the Yennyawoso District in New Tafo Area of The Church of Pentecost, has appreciated the praiseworthy effort of its outgone Executive Committee Members in a grand style.
Deaconesses Dorothy Bediako (Leader), Annie Tanoh (Assistant Leader), Janet Appau (Secretary), and Monica Boakye (Treasurer) were honoured at a special service held on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, at the Central Assembly auditorium.
In acknowledgement of their great contribution towards the growth of the Women’s Ministry in the district, they were each presented a citation, a parcel, and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Speaking on the topic: “Opportunity,” Pastor Charles Oduro, the District Minister, who chaired the event, urged Christians to grab every opportunity that comes their way.
Some of the opportunities, according to him, made available to mankind by God are life and time; repentance and salvation; being good to people (Galatians 6:9-10); being a father and husband; being a mother and wife (Judges 5:7), and being a leader.
Supporting his sermon with scriptures from John 9:4 and Ecclesiastes 3:1ff, Pastor Oduro defined opportunity as a period when a particular situation makes it possible to do or achieve something. He, however, noted that opportunity will not always be there as it can be hindered by old age, sickness, death, distance, hardship, among others. He, therefore, advised the gathering to do something momentous at every given opportunity, saying, “There can be no better time to serve God than now because what you do today determines what you will be tomorrow.”
He also applauded the outgone executive members for availing themselves to be used mightily by God to advance the kingdom business.
Present at the event were Mrs. Gladys Oduro (wife of the District Minister), Area Women’s Ministry Executive Members, Women’s Ministry Leaders of the various districts in the Area, among others.
