As part of the Easter celebrations, the women’s wing of the Evangelical Church of Ghana (ECG) has donated what it describes as its “widow’s mite” to inmates at the Navrongo Prison in the Upper East region.
The Leader of the Women’s Ministry Mrs. Sakina Baffoe explained that the gesture is a way of showing love and affection to the inmates just as Jesus did for the world by using himself as a sacrifice to cleanse the sins of the world.
She mentioned that being women makes them mothers and therefore it will only be right that they came to donate the items as a show of their motherly instincts.
Mrs. Baffoe stated that “this is the Easter time and we want to show our love as mothers and also in fulfilment of what the Bible says”.
“Today we are here and we have about two bags of corn, two bags of rice, BF soap, 10gallons of liquid soap, 5 gallons of bleach, 200 pieces of bibles and we have clothing among other items,” she added.
For his part, Reverend Simon Adongo, the Regional Overseer of the Evangelical Church of Ghana believed the donation will go a long way to help the inmates in their upkeep and also show how unconditional the love of God is and by so doing they may repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and personal saviour.
