EPCG Mempeasem donates to Nsawam Prisons
The donation was led by the Women’s Fellowship of the church. They presented assorted detergents, toiletries, clothing, and food items which were received by Rev. ASP Stella Katso of the Ghana Prisons Service.
To live the practical Christian life of caring for the needy, the imprisoned, the hungry as required of Christians in Matthew 25:31-45, the church deemed it important to offer its support by giving its widows might.
The Bible admonishes Christians to feed the hungry, take care of those who thirst, meet the needs of strangers, clothe the naked, and visit those in prison. In doing these, the bible reminds Christians that whatever they do for one of the least of these persons; they should see it as doing it for God and not mankind.
The initiative of the EPCG Mempeasem Congregation in Accra was aimed at showing love and concern for the needs of inmates.

Officers of the Ghana Prisons Service thanked the church and its leadership for the kind gesture and prayed the church makes the event a frequent one.
Speaking to Ghana24.org after the donation, the Acting Catechist and leader of the Women’s Fellowship delegation to Nsawam Prisons Mrs. Adelaid Oteng indicated that “It is a duty and the calling on the church to support, show love and care for the vulnerable. It is our stewardship responsibility in Mathhew 25 : 35 – 45”
She furthered that the congregation sees the gesture of love and care as a duty that the Christian faith has neglected and that it needs to be demonstrated through such kind acts.
“We have seen it to be a duty we have neglected for so long. We have realized that we are called to build mankind and improve society” She added.
She called on churches to support the government in taking care of the needs of inmates in Ghana’s prisons to improve their lives. “It is time the churches adopted and supported the prisons,” she stated.
The delegation that did the donation on behalf of the Church and the Women’s Fellowship were from right to left, Mrs. Adelaide Oteng. Mad. Esther Tedeku, Mad. Emelia Kulafe and Mad. Francisca Tettey.
Such gestures create an opportunity for the church to get closer to individuals who have been imprisoned, some of who may never exit again hence “there are lives and souls to win through the showing of love and care. Mrs. Oteng added.
Rev. DSP Stella Katso received the items on behalf of the Prisons Service and thanked the church for coming to their aid. She prayed that their visit and donations will become a routine event.
