Royal House Chapel donates to prisoners

Listen to article

Accra, April 12, GNA-- The Royal House Chapel International (RHCI) has donated assorted foodstuffs and used clothes valued at two million cedis to inmates of the James Fort Prison as part of activities marking the Easter celebrations.

In addition, the church organized a feast for the aged from outside and within the church to extend good tidings of the period to them. Preaching at a church service to round off activities of the Easter, Rev Sam Korankye Ankra, General Overseer, challenged Christians not to be listeners of the word alone, but strive to be doers of what they hear from the pulpit.

He stated that Christians could encounter God face to face if they were patient enough to rely on the promises, which had been given through the word of God.

Rev. Ankra noted that most Christians would not be able to withstand temptations since they were impatient to wait on the Lord through the study of the Bible, adding, "they are thus blown away when they encounter the storms of life."

He added, "it is during the dark hours of our lives when there is chaos and confusion that we should turn to the Lord and seek refuge in Him".

Rev. Ankra called on Ghanaians to use the Easter period to mend the broken relationships with one another, to ensure peaceful co-existence in the country.

At the Kaneshie Assembly of the Apostolic Church, Rev. John Adottey, District Minister who preached at a service to climax a four-day Easter Convention, asked Ghanaians to use the period to reconcile with one another to reciprocate God's love for mankind.

He said through the resurrection of Christ, God had reconciled men unto Him, and charged Christians not to allow the pleasures of the world to drift them away from the mercy of God.

Rev. Ohenese Gyan Agyei of the Living Faith Chapel at Asoredanho, in a sermon to round off a four-day Easter Convention, asked Ghanaians to trust God to ensure peaceful and successful elections in December. He noted that God had guided the nation through turbulent times, and called on Christians not to relent in their prayers to help destroy the evil intentions of the devil.

At Madina where the Divine Healers Church held a four-day convention, Rev Emmanuel Kwabena Koranteng said if the country's democracy would grow, then politicians need to tolerate the views of their opponents.

He therefore asked them not to consider their opponents as enemies but as colleagues who had the common vision to win power to seek the welfare of the electorate.
