In an exhortation, the Resident Minister for PIWC -Sakumono, Mrs. Eunice Owusu Sekyere Kwarteng quoted 2 Timothy 3:15 and Luke 2:52 and asked the children to read their Bibles and pray every day as well as strengthen themselves in the word of God.
“The mother of all mothers who caters for children is the Lord Jesus Christ,” she said and added that “Society may forget about you but our Lord Jesus will remember you hence take the word of God seriously and grow in it.”
She prayed the favour of God upon them, and an excellent spirit for the kids to learn and be obedient to the mothers of the home.
Presenting the items on behalf of the Ministry, the Women’s Ministry Leader for PIWC Sakumono, Deaconess Isabella Orhin said the Ministry was touched by the plight of the children and wanted them to have a great Christmas.
“As Christians we strongly believe children are a gift from God and must have the right to live irrespective of the circumstances surrounding their gestation and birth,” she said.
Receiving the items on behalf of the home, Nii Afotey Botwe II, the head of the home, thanked the Women’s Ministry of PIWC for their kind gesture. He called on other churches to support them as support to the home has dwindled considerably during the era of the pandemic.
