The Head Pastor of Grace Baptist Church, Amakom, Reverend Robert Kwadwo Asante has advised individuals and authorities placed in charge of the nation’s resources to manage them in a way that would benefit all.

According to him Ghana is awash with many resources but those who have been entrusted with assets used them for their personal comforts, sidelining the needy people in society.

The Reverend Minster made this clarion call when he and some members of the church presented a cash of GH5000.00 to the Children Ward of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) to cater for the medical bills of mothers who were unable to foot their bills.

Items such as biscuits, diapers, clothing, bread, assorted drinks, detergents, sugar were also  donated to the hospital.

“If you are a child of God you do not steal to become blessed. You do genuine work to become blessed and when you are blessed you do not keep the blessing but extend it to others because Abraham was blessed to bless people and the bible says Jesus came, and from Him all the blessings in the heavenly places have been given to Christians,” he opined, adding that any Christian who does not bless does not know the identity he has.

He was saddened by how individuals misuse the state funds, neglecting the poor in the society who cannot meet their meet their bills or even afford the basics of life.

The Minister of God disclosed that the gesture forms part of the church’s Golden Jubilee celebration and the church’s vision to do a holistic ministry to the body, soul and spirit of individuals

According to him, having attained 50 years, they considered it best to extend their help to show appreciation to God in the hospital, prison and the orphanage since very needy people are found at such place.

“Every church is to be a blessing to the community in which they live and Grace Baptist Church has been a blessing to people through the years since its inception,” he said.

He added that the gesture is in fulfilment of the mission of Jesus Christ that is to visit the needy and give them of their support.

“Many people are found at the hospital, prison and the orphanage and as a church we not only commissioned to seek for the spiritual needs of a person but also to seek for the soul and body as well,” he noted.

Items worth over GHS 30,000.00 were also presented to KATH, Manhyia local Prison and All Nations Charity Home at Afigya in Kumasi.

Among the Wards that Church paid the medical bills and other expenses are the Mother and babies Unit (MBU), Pediatric Energy Unit (PEU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).

A Senior Nursing Officer at one of the wards, Victoria Afrah commended the church for the gesture. She said that the cash donation would particularly help them in freeing some of the mothers who were unable to settle their bills.

“”The cash donation will help us ease congestion  and create new space for new admission, and also with the items  such as diapers would be given to the babies whose parents and relatives  cannot cater for them ” she said.

One of the beneficiaries, Eric Nsinbe  from Atebubu in the Brong Ahafo Region, whose son (Joseph Nsinbe) suffering from Jaw Burkitt (cancerous disease) thanked the church for catering for his son’s medical bills worth over hundreds of Ghana cedis.

Thomas Amankwa from Kumasi whose son is suffering from sickle cell had his medical bill of GHS 311.50 catered for.

At the Manhyia local prison, the church shared a brief but powerful word of God with the inmates after which they prayed and led some to Christ.

Chief Superintendent Patrick Thomas Seidu who is the Second in Command at the Manhyia local Prisons said the items brought to them would enhance their operation.

 

 The Proprietor of All Nations Charity Home, Pastor Philip Akwasi Nyamekye thanked the church for their benevolence and asked God’s blessings to the congregation.

 Items such as biscuits, diapers, clothing, bread, assorted drinks, detergents, sugar were also given donated to the hospital.
