He was speaking at the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Ho’s 175th anniversary thanksgiving ceremony.
We must always share Christian love, especially now, when money dislikes disruption. Especially now, when we can all agree that times are tough.
This is the opportunity to demonstrate our Christian compassion by loving our neighbors as we love ourselves.
And so whatever little you have to share, you should share with your neighbour. I mean we could tell the hardship in the system from the appeal for funds.

And when it got to the silver collection, 1 Cedi, 2 Cedis, the place was full, it shows that the pocket was not too good”, he stated.
Mr. Mahama, therefore, appealed to Christians to pray for him and the National Democratic Congress to win the 2024 general elections.
This he said would enable him and the NDC rescue Ghana from the current economic hardship, rising inflation and sufferings.
“After we pray for Pakistan, Moderator should also say a special prayer for me and for the NDC so that in some year that is just coming, luck will smile on us, God will smile on us and give us the power to come and rescue this country from the suffering we are going through” he said.
Mr Mahama lauded the efforts of the E.P Church, Ghana, to the development of the country, especially in the education and health sectors.
The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana, Rt. Okay Rev Dr. Lt. Col. Bliss Divine Agbeko (Rtd), advised Christians to remain righteous followers of Christ and persevere to the very end.
He also implored persons in leadership positions to eschew corruption to earn a place in paradise adding the church would continue to shepherd its congregation for the common good of humanity.
