PIWC Ablekuma supports Nsawam Prisons
The Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC) Ablekuma on Saturday presented assorted items worth thousands of Cedis to the Nsawam Medium Security Prison in the Eastern Region.
The items included bags of rice, cooking oil, liquid soaps, mackerels, tin tomatoes, drinks, toiletries, bags of water among others.
Presenting the items on behalf of the Residence Minister, Pastor Abraham Nimako Boateng, the District Prisons Ministry Committee Chairman, Elder Daniel Waka said the donation formed part of the Church’s coporate social responsibility to support less privileged in society.
He said it was also in line with the five-year strategic vision of the Church of Pentecost (Vision 2023: Possessing the Nations), which, among other objectives, seeks to partner the government of Ghana in ensuring the practical reformation of prisoners.
Elder Waka used the opportunity to share the word of God with the inmates and admonished them to put their trust in Him for He is the saviour of the universe.
He entreated them not to worry that they had been neglected but remember that they were loved and cherished by God.
He quoted the bible saying in Hebrews 13:3, the bible states that: “continue to remember those in prison, as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated, as if you yourselves were suffering.”
“Do not be deter by your sins but rather trust in Him and continue to worship Him in truth and faith for He is capable of everything,” he added.
The Chaplain of the Prison, Pastor ASP Thomas Brefo, who received the items on behalf of the inmates, expressed gratitude to the Church for its continuous support to the Prisons Service over the years.
He promised to put the items to good use and ensure it was used for it intended purpose.
Present at the short presentation ceremony were Elder Alex Frimpong (District Executive member, PIWC Ablekuma) and Mr Isaac Amoah- Owusu (Team member of the PIWC Ablekuma Prisons).
