The Beloved Cathedral of the Lighthouse Chapel International (LCI) on Tuesday, 24th December 2019, fed 850 prisoners at the Sunyani Central Prisons as part of its Christmas activities.
The project, which was entirely funded through church donations, delighted the prisoners with double servings of fufu and meat, as well as drinks.
Speaking in an interview after the donation, Lady Pastor, Maame Esi said the experience was a lovely one which placed smiles on the faces of the prisoners.
“By the grace of God and of our Father, Bishop Dag and Bishop Kevin, we decided that we would spend today with the prisoners. We thought of doing something that no one had done before. Something that would put a smile on their faces, so we actually made them fufu and light soup and then we brought some drinks. We have cooked for about 1,800 people and we had about 15 ladies and 3 gentlemen who helped us accomplish this.”
“…We want to thank everybody who gave to support. We are also encouraging that as we celebrate this season, let us not forget the Jesus that has come to set the captives free. Thank you so much and God bless you.”
The Church looks forward to making this a yearly activity and is still accepting donations from the general public to make this possible.
The Beloved Cathedral is situated in Sunyani behind the Wednesday Market and headed by Bishop Kevin Barnsley. It is part of the Greater Love Denomination of the LCI.
