The Church’s humanitarian structure positively provides support in diverse ways in ensuring the well-being of its ministers, members and non-members. It is upon this background that Apostle Sam together with Bishop Ampofo and Deputy District Rector Asuah Boadi (Takoradi) visited Community Evangelist Kojo Essien (Bogoso), at his residence on August 21, 2022, to extend support and encouragement.

The Apostle and accompanying ministers, on behalf of the Church, presented a cheque from the Church’s humanitarian fund to support the payment of the medical bills of the ailing Community Evangelist. The minister has been battling cancer and the loss of sight in his left eye for over a year, making it difficult for him to discharge his duties in his district at Bogoso.

Community Evangelist Kojo Essien was very grateful for the support given to him by the church and was also happy to see the active care and thoughtfulness of both Apostle and Bishop in his battling moments. The Community Evangelist, who has been in the ministry for the past 32 years, was serving the Koranteng congregation at the Bogoso district until June 23, 2021 when he fell sick.

On this occasion of the visit by the Apostle, the minister looked better than on previous days and dutifully remarked: “The healthier I am, the longer I can serve as a minister”.
