PCG Ga Mission Field shows love to prisons, police cells.
The Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Ga Mission Field, backed their words of love with action when they donated assorted items to inmates of the Nsawam (Male) prison in the Eastern Region, police cells at Pokuase and Sarpeiman in the Ga West Municipality of the Greater Accra Region.
Rev. Joseph Oman Ocquaye, Coordinator-In-Charge of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Ga Mission Field said, it was not enough to verbally declare the love, sacrifice and forgiveness, Jesus Christ made for mankind without an action of love.
He said, on the occasion of Easter, the gesture was to “express the concern of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana towards the inmates and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ which reveals God’s love to humanity culminating in the death of Christ on the cross of Calvary for the salvation of all.”
Together with his team, he donated assorted items comprising, bars of soaps, detergents, toiletries, food stuffs, bags and boxes of drinking water, bottles of soft drinks among others amounting to GH4,603.00 to the prisons.
DSP Abdul Latif, Eastern Regional Public Relations Officer of the Prison Service, was happy at the gesture of the church and assured that the items would be used for the intended purpose.
He said that “there was no other way to express love to the inmates than the support and donation by the PCG Ga Mission Field especially on the occasion of Easter’.
He said the expression of love was the significance of Easter and expressed gratitude to all organisations and well-meaning individuals who often supported the inmates.
Rev. Joseph Oman Ocquaye, said the gesture to the inmates which was part of the Special Mission of the PCG would be a regular project, as it sought to win more souls for Christ.
The Mission Field he said, would embark on regular community-based activities which would involve traditional leaders, other organisations and well-meaning individuals with the aim of developing the areas both physically and spiritually.
The Ga Mission Field is one of the oldest mission fields in the Presbyterian of Ghana and currently comprises 23 churches.
