Bishop Dr Chris Parsram and his team of believers from Rohi Global Ministries spent their Christmas reaching out a generous hand to the more than 300 slum dwellers behind the Accra Mall.
The beneficiaries, including drug addicts, alcoholics, among others, gathered in the premises of the Spectrum International school. Clothes, shoes and food were distributed to them.
The message of God’s love and the gift of Jesus Christ was shared, after which around 200 people gave their lives to Christ.
Bibles have been distributed to all who have received Christ as their Lord and Savior.
One beneficiary, Comfort, was grateful for the benevolence.
“No one has done such a good thing for us before. We are very grateful. I come home with so many clothes on. All my children came too. God bless the bishop, ”she said.
Mr. Ngago, a drug addict for 3 years, said: “It is the best Christmas of my life. My life will never be the same. I have Jesus alive in me now. I am very happy.”
Rohi Global Ministries has been undertaking this exercise for 8 years now.
The initiative that was originally known as the “Feed the Community Kids Project” is now called the “Ministry of the Less Privileged”.
Visionary, Bishop Dr Parsram noted that the gesture exemplifies Christ’s love for humanity.
“Christmas is a time when we remember the greatest gift of all time, Jesus Christ. It is a season when humanity has experienced great love through the act of giving.
“For God so loved the world that he gave. This is what we can also do to show love to others. We bring people together and offer physical gifts as well as the everlasting gift of Christ, ”he said.
Rohi Global Ministries hints at more community outreach in the coming years.
