Helping the needy is what God has placed on my heart to do, this is according to Pastor Victor Larweh who is the District Pastor of the Christ Cornerstone International Church Ghana at Nkurakan in the Yilo Krobo municipality of the Eastern region.
His remarks followed donations worth Ghc 10,000 made by the church to some vulnerable individuals in some farming communities within the Yilo Krobo municipality in the Eastern region.
“Helping the needy is what God placed on my heart to do, especially orphans and the helpless children,” Pastor Larweh said. “Some children have parents but they do suffer. We do these to show them that God loves them and has not abandoned them.”
According to Pastor Larweh, helping the disadvantaged in society, especially orphans and the helpless children are God’s way of demonstrating to them that God loves them and has not abandoned them.
“It’s been my heart’s desire to help the needy and so my church members including my loved ones from different places have been helping me to achieve my goals. The work we are doing is not by our own will but by Gods will to help the poor and the needy,” he underscored.
Items donated to the needy included food items, drinks, boxes of soap, bales of clothes, bales of sandals, etc.
The donations by Pastor Victor Larweh, according to him was also aimed at supporting the living conditions of aged women and men, children, widows, etc. to earn a living.
To him, helping the destitute and not only the taking of offertory from his congregation remains his focus.
“My vision as a man of God is to support the impoverished in society but not only taking offerings from the poor to enrich myself. The church has established a school which is attended by children for free. Many people are suffering in our villages and are appealing to the rich and wealthy in society to support such people to survive,” he said.
Some of the farming communities which benefitted from the church’s benevolence are: Prepretifi, Amanga, Opesika Sukwenya and Worapong all in the Yilo Krobo Municipality.
Pastor Victor Larweh explained that the church undertakes this activity three times in a year.
He thus called on the general public, especially Christians to give especially to the poor because there is more blessing in giving than receiving.
