The Kingdom Ministry International on Wednesday, 21st October, at the church headquarters, Tengbeh Town in Freetown, officially launched the Husband to the Widow Organisation, and as well provided food stuffs to members and community people- to mitigate hunger during the fight against the deadly Coronavirus in the country.
The General Overseer and Founder of Kingdom Ministry International, Prophetess Beatrice Penn-Timity, said when she established the organisation God showed her a vision to help the poor widows with food, clothing and other basic necessities that will sustain their lives.
She said the motto for the organisation is ‘widows sing for joy’ because they have been suffering for so long and that God wants to do something great in their lives, adding that they should know that God will never let them down.
“I want all widows to know that God has concerns for them and they must be closer to Him because He alone can provide for them. I notice that the widows are suffering more in the communities and that was the time I got the vision to support them. And I want to see more widows coming to the organisation no matter where they belong,” she said.
She promised to continue her support to the poor widows, adding that at the end of the month she will provide food and clothing for them because Jesus did it for his people.
She pleaded with the government and other humanitarian organisations to help her fulfil her dream.
“By that, they can understand that the church is not just about preaching of the gospel, but also about meeting the physical, social and spiritual needs of the people. I want to encourage other churches to reach out to the poor widows and other deprived people especially during this trying time,” she said.
Giving words of encouragement to the widows, Fatmata Turay, called on them to have trust in God, even though things are not easy and further encouraged them to have time with God because He will make things easier for them.
She noted that although the ministry is not big, but appreciated the fact that God is doing greater things for them, adding that God will surely bless them if they work for Him.
Speaking on behalf of the widows, Haja Marie Tarawallie thanked the church authorities for supporting them because after the death of their husbands, things were very difficult for them.
She said for her son to get admitted into a secondary school, she had to trade off her pot to raise money for him.
“I will like the church to continue to support us the poor widows in the community,” she said.
