RRC Assemblies of God supports new churches with motorbikes


Accra, June 13, GNA - The Revival Restoration Centre (RRC) Assemblies of God has presented six motorbikes to some churches it planted during its 2017 Missions Outreach.

The beneficiary churches are located in Apradan, Aweregya, Pra River and Dadieso all in the Kwahu West District of the Eastern Region.

The others are located in Salaga in the Northern Region and the other in the Volta region.

A statement signed by Mr Richard Kwasi Adjei Agyapong, the Media Relations Officer of the Church and copied to the Ghana News Agency, said a colourful ceremony was held on Sunday, June 11, to officially handover the motorbikes to the beneficiary pastors.

Lead Pastor of the RRC assembly, Apostle Dr Alex Kweku Nkrumah, noted that the church started embarking on missions outreach some 25 years ago and had given out 16 motorbikes so far.

He said the decision to donate the motorbikes to the churches was as a result of the very bad nature of roads in those areas coupled with distance between the residence of the pastors and the churches.

'Some of the pastors travel several kilometres culminating into hours before reaching the church. This makes life difficult for them and their families. Only the strong-willed will stay to continue the kingdom work,' he said.

Dr Kwabena Duffuor, the Chairman of the Welfare Committee of the RRC Assembly, said giving to support God's work had immeasurable rewards.

He charged Christians to give towards God's work irrespective of their income levels citing Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Susanna who were ardent supporters of Jesus' ministry and the widow who supported Elijah's ministry.

'You don't have to have enough in order to give towards God's work or support society. No matter what you have, it is enough for something somewhere,' he said.

Receiving the motorbikes on behalf of the pastors, Rev. Peter Abenneh, the General Secretary of Assemblies of God Church in the Eastern Region, expressed the gratitude of the pastors and the members for their benevolence and assured that the motorbikes would be used for the intended purposes as well as serviced regularly to ensure that they lasted.

He prayed God's blessings on the entire congregation for their support for the missions.

Some 5, 240 people benefitted from RRC Assemblies of God 2017 Missions Outreach held in the Kwahu West District of the Eastern Region. Of this number, 2,462 were saved.
