“For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you took me in, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came for me, then the righteous will answer Him saying, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or thirsty and gave you drink? When did we see you a stranger and take you in, or naked and cloth you? Or when did we see you sick, or in prison and did we come to you? And the king will answer and say to them, Assuredly, I say to you in as much did it to one of these my brethren, you did it to Me”. (Matt. 25:35-36,40).
Inspired by the bible verse above, the choristers of Ho Central congregation (Volta Central Apostle Area) extended their hearts and kindness to the sick and aged who could no longer come to church due to their ill health and physical challenges.
On Thursday 13th May and Sunday, 23rd May, 2021, the Choir visited Sisters Hellen Avedzi and Evelyn Anku respectively. The two sisters, were very active and dedicated in the kingdom work prior to their current situations.
For the past 15 years, Sister Avedzi has been afflicted with a stroke. On the other hand, Sister Anku has been suffering from the effects of a motor accident. The choristers visited these faithful women in their homes at Sokode-Gbogame and Hofedo respectively. They spent about two hours each with them where they performed several hymns to encourage and inspire them.
The Choir also donated food stuffs, toiletries, detergents and an undisclosed amount of cash to both sisters. Deacon Patrick Kafui Klutse, the Choir leader, assured the sisters that, the church remembers all their hard work and sacrifice and they are not alone in their predicament; the choir shares in their present state of health and it is our fervent hope, prayer and believe that God will continue to sustain and uplift their spirits.
District Elder Avedzi, on behalf of his wife, and sister Evelyn thanked the choir for the visit and also inspired them to continue with the good work they have started, since this will encourage the souls of those who cannot physically come to the altar of grace due to ill health.
