Kumasi, Dec. 1, GNA - The Youth Ministry of the El-Shaddai Baptist Temple at the weekend presented items worth about one million cedis to the Kumasi Children's Home.
The items included a bag of gari, half bag of rice, bars of soap, a gallon of cooking oil and second hand clothes.
Making the presentation, Pastor Israel Gbaffah, General Secretary of the African Rural Evangelistic Association, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), urged youth ministries to live up to expectation and not to engage in vices that would bring Christianity into disrepute. He was not happy that even though there were many youth ministries springing up in the country, indiscipline among the youth in the church had not gone down.
Mr Gbaffah charged church leaders to monitor these ministries properly so that they served their intended purpose. Mrs Veronica Aggrey, Senior Child Caretaker of the Home, who received the items, expressed gratitude to the ministry and asked them to pray for the staff and children.
