In fulfilment of its Christian Social Responsibility (CSR), the Zion Community Church International in collaboration with Frontiers Missions Network has donated a borehole to Kpirinji community in the Kunfugsi Electoral Area of the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District.
Pastor-in-charge of the church and the Executive Director of Frontiers Missions Network, Rev. Apostle Dr. Moses Sansah Konjon, who led church members to commission the project on Monday, June 7, 2021, said the intervention was in line with the church’s vision to positively impact communities.
He explained that the gesture was sequel to realisation of the community’s need, which had long suffered access to potable water, adding that the church will continue to partner with communities on other areas of need.
An elated women and men of the community who witnessed the commissioning, thanked the church for coming to the community’s aid.
A member of the community, who also expressed gratitude to the church, said: “I am filled with so much joy. I am happy and delighted that we have a free borehole here. May God continue to bless Zion Community Church International for this great initiative.”
The General Overseer of the Church, Rev. Sansa told Yagbon News that the newly drilled borehole fitted with hand pump was valued at GH¢ 20,000.00.
According to him, the church was interested in developing both the social and spiritual welfare of its members as well as their immediate community within which it found itself.
With funding from Frontiers Missions Network Rev. Sansah explained that the borehole would ensure that residents were not stranded at the only existing borehole at a nearby community, thus; Bakaayiri.
According to him “the gospel is not only about the spiritual welfare, it also concerns itself with the physical dimension of its adherents, to meet their most felt social needs.”
Apostle Sansah, intimated that partnering government to provide the needs of the people was another way of preaching the gospel and showing people how to be benevolent and merciful towards the needs of others.
The church and its network have drilled over 40 boreholes in the Savannah Region.
