Christ Family Congregation to build a school for Dzapatra

Accra- The Christ Family Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Asylum Down, Accra, will soon build a school at Dzapatra, a village located in the Adeiso District of the Eastern Region. The village with a population of about 500 people lack basic amenities such as school, potable water, clinic or a place of convenience (toilet).

The Reverend Ofosu Gyeabour Adarkwa, Pastor in charge of the Christ Family Congregation, who made the announcement at the one year anniversary of the Salvation Preaching point, the only church in the community, called on government and other benevolent organisations to come to the aid of the community.

The Christ Family Congregation last year embarked on an evangelism mission in the village of Dzapatra and established the Salvation Preaching point, which is the only church in the community.

The Dzapatra village which has been in existence for more than 100 years is dominated by idol worship.

Rev. Gyeabour Adarkwa said no church has been able to penetrate or send the gospel there.

As Presbyterians we believe in training the heart, the head and the hands, we train the mind to acquire knowledge, the heart to love God and the hands to work with, so we have also decided to build a clinic and a place of convenience for the people of Dzapatra in the near future.

Rev. Gyeabuor Adarkwa called on the government and the ‘good people of Ghana’ to join hands with the Christ Family Congregation to embark on these developmental programmes in the village.

The Dzapatra Salvation Preaching point currently has a membership of 150 comprising 60 adults and 90 children.
