Pentecost Social Services (PENTSOS), the social services wing of The Church of Pentecost, has constructed two boreholes for Kwesikrom in Ellobankata District and Essaman in Adum Banso District in the Takoradi Area of the church.
The facilities were constructed at a total cost of GH¢32,000.00, received from the Headquarters of the church through PENTSOS.
Commissioning the boreholes on behalf of the Area Head on March 26, 2020, at the two communities respectively, the Area Secretary, Pastor Charles Arthur indicated that, although the borehole will provide physical water to quench the thirst of people of the communities, he recommends Jesus Christ who is the living water that never runs out and that whoever receives Him will never thirst.
He emphasised that anyone who receives Jesus, receives hope, because without Jesus in the life of an individual no one has the hope of eternal life.
“The thirst of every person can be quenched by Jesus who is the living water,” he affirmed.
He used the opportunity to encourage both communities to accept and receive Jesus the Living Water who is far more valuable than the physical water which has been provided to them by The Church of Pentecost.
The Area Secretary informed the communities that the initiative forms part of the church’s community development efforts in line with Vision 2023.
The Chief of Essaman, Nana Kwesi Aboah II and the Chief of Kwesikrom Nana Kwesi Angrah took their turns and expressed gratitude to the church for the facilities and entreated the people in their communities to take good care facilities to ensure a longer lifespan.
Present at the ceremony were the Takoradi Area Deacon, Elder Daniel K. Quaye, Pastors Augustine Bacho (Adum Banso District), Ransford K. Baah (Ellobankata District) and some selected officers and members of the church.
