Children Ministry of the EP Church Ghana, Mempeasem Congregation visits Teshie Children’s Home

The Children Ministry of the EP Church Ghana, Mempeasem Congregation has visited the Teshie Children’s Home here in Accra to mark the 2019 Children’s Day Celebration of the Church.

The Children’s day celebration is an annual celebration for children of the E.P.C.G throughout the country which is celebrated in March every year. This year, the reverend Minister of the congregation Rev. Jean-Paul Agidi called for the need to visit the children’s home as part of activities to mark the celebration and with the support of the church; this event has seen the light of day.

The visit to the home provided children of the church a rare opportunity to interact with their friends, brothers, and sisters at the home and to extend love in the form of donations.

At the home, the EPCG children and those at the Teshie Childrens Home had a short interaction. Mrs. Alfreda Ekua Anteh the manager of the home was happy about the visit and thanked the leadership of the Church and the children ministry for choosing to visit them out of the numerous homes in town. Madam Alfreda informed the children and teachers from the EPCG that, at the home, they inculcate good moral values into the children under their care, pray with them and also help them with school and their home works.

She said they are a lot of bad habits and attitudes within the community and through the home; they do their best to meet the needs of the children. She added that one of their kids now works with one of the banks in Ghana and he is also contributing immensely to the home to help meet the needs of the children at the home.

During the interaction, Mrs. Anteh informed the children that the home caters for both orphans and needy children as required by the Social Welfare. She added that some of the children only come to the home during the day and that, the children live a normal life in the home just like any other child at home. In the area of education, she said, the children are in School, and the older kids help the little ones to do their homes works as well.

Mrs. Adelaide Oteng the leader of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church Mempeasem Children ministry praised the effort of those managing the home for the excellent work they are doing for humanity.

The children lead by their teachers made a donation of assaulted groceries and clothing to the home. The items donated were from the church, parents as well as Sunday school children. Donating the items, Mrs. Adelaide Oteng based it on

“I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me. They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you? He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”
Matthew 25:43-45

The leadership of the children ministry looks forward to the visit being an annual event on the calendar of the EPCG Mempeasem and the children service of the church to bridge the gap, build bridges and help nature cordial and stronger ties between the children ministry and the children at the home. It is worth noting that, Newsghan24 noticed that, the Teshie Children’s Home was so neat and well kept. We give thumbs up to all the staff and volunteers. We would also use this opportunity to call on corporate Ghana , Churches and other human rights advocacy groups like the Human Rights Reporters Ghana to extend a helping hand to the home so they can continue to touch lives and give hope and a brighter future to all the children under their care.
