The Reverend Mrs Francisca Duncan-Williams, Wife of the Presiding Bishop of Action Chapel International, has urged women to use their entrepreneurial skills to impact society and pray for the economic well-being of the nation.
She said women were endowed with gifts such as cooking and craftsmanship and could make a difference in society if they started doing business with them.
Rev. Mrs Duncan-Williams said this at the second anniversary celebration of the Awaken Women’s Professional Fellowship at Baatsonaa, near Tema, on the theme: “God’s Purpose for A Woman’’.
The Fellowship aims at helping women to nurture their talents to impact society.
Rev. Mrs Duncan-Williams said although prayer was a necessity for survival as a Christian, it was also important to skilfully equip oneself to become an asset to the family and the nation as a whole.
She described a woman of purpose as a hardworking woman who supported the family and contributed to the upkeep of the home.
“A woman of purpose is a woman of prayer, a woman who bears the can do spirit, who gives her time and treasure without counting the cost. A woman of purpose is a woman who loves the Lord with all her heart, her time, treasure and talents,” Rev. Mrs Duncan-Williams said.
Dr Mary Offei-Agyeman, the Medical Director of the Ropheka Herbal Hospital, called on Ghanaians to adhere to the Covid-19 safety protocols by washing hands with soap and using alcohol-based hand sanitizers, as well as observing social distancing.
She urged Ghanaians to eat healthy foods and more vegetables to keep their immune system strong.
Lady Apostle Victoria Sarpong, Founder of the Fellowship, said it was established in 2019 to offer support for young women by providing them with vocational training.
She urged women to aspire to greater heights and take leadership positions by improving on their educational achievements.
