The Sawla Area Head, Pastor David Amankwaa of The Church of Pentecost, Sawla Area in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District on Tuesday 26th April, 2022 launched the 2022 Environmental Care Campaign of the church at Sawla Central church auditorium.
The campaign is one of the focal areas of the Vision 2023 of The Church of Pentecost, nationwide dubbed “Possessing the Nations (Equipping the church to transforming every sphere of society with values and principles of the Kingdom of God).
The Sawla Area in partnership with the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District Assembly and other stakeholders in the district launched the campaign coupled with presentations concerning the deteriorating state of the environment in Sawla community and its environs.
Mr. Lawerence Naalubetuore, the District Environmental Health Assistant for Sawla-Tuna-Kalba lamented on the undue influence of some opinion leaders whenever sanctions are to be meted to culpable offenders for their negative actions on the environment.
He therefore advised participants to respect the environment by keeping it clean for habitation.
He again entreated participants to be each other’s keeper on the cleanliness of the environment because any outbreak of disease due to bad environmental practices will affect each and every one.
In his address, the Area Head admonished participants especially believers of Christ to be responsible of the environment which was created by God for humanity.
He emphasized based on Genesis 1:30, that the environment created by God was good; hence must be protected by God’s people because “we are stewards of the environment”.
Pastor Benjamin Addo-Boateng, the Area Coordinator of Discipleship and Leadership Development Committee outlined the action plan for the 2022 Environmental Care Campaign with a climax of clean up exercises in the various zones in the Area.
In attendance were Ministers, District Environmental Health officers, officers of the church and members of the church in the area.
