Tarkwa Presbyterian Church gives to prisoners
Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Trinity Congregation, Tarkwa, has donated items worth GH¢ 500 to Tarkwa prisons.
The items included five mini-bags of rice, a mini-bag of sugar to the prisons and some pastries.
Rev Isaac Asare, the minister in charge of the church, said it was the duty of Christians to give to the needy and appealed to the inmates not to revisit the crime or the process which led them to the prison.
Comparing the life of Biblical Joseph who was once imprisoned but later became a minister, Rev Asare said it was not impossible for the Lord to raise some of the inmates to a pedestal where some people will question, “Was he not a prisoner?”
Rev Asare said going to prison was a punishment but it was a means to reform and to repent and therefore called on the inmates to lead exemplary lives after serving their prison terms.
