PIWC donates to Sowutoum Prisons

Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC), Ablekuma Area, has donated assorted items to the Sowutuom Prisons as part of the church’s social responsibility.

The church led by the Resident Minister, Pastor Abraham Nimako Boateng, and the Prison’s Ministry Committeepresented items such as drinks, water, toiletries, cooking oil, detergents and bibles.

As part of the donation, the church also shared the word of God with the inmates and encouraged them to put their hope in Christ and see their current situation as an opportunity to build a better relationship with God.

Presenting the items, the Chairman of the Prison’s Ministry Committee, Mr Daniel Walker, said the gesture was in line with the church’s Vision 2023 of ‘Possessing the Nations’ which sought to, among other things, extend ministry to neglected mission fields.

He said it was also in fulfilment of Jesus’ command to Christians to extend love and care to the vulnerable in society, including prison inmates (Matthew 25:26).

“This is an annual ritual and as a church we owe it as a responsibility to show love to the needy as the bible stated in Matthew 25:36that “I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”

“The Church is the salt of the earth and light of the world. Thus, the Church has the responsibility to reflect the love of Christ to the world in which it operates,” he added.

Mr Walker entreated the inmates to accept Jesus Christ into their lives as He was their only Lord and Saviour.

The Station Officer, Chief Inspector Phillip Jackson, commended the church and expressed gratitude for its generosity and continued support to the inmates. 

He urged other organisations to emulate the kind gesture and promised to put the items to good use to benefit the inmates.
