Ovr. Akorli stressed that it is expected of widows to remain committed in the LORD and play exemplary roles in nurturing the younger generation. He added that Christian widows should be careful of cultural widowhood practices that is contrary to the Christian faith. He concluded by saying that “Let us be careful of how we treat widows and widowers in the society; for anyone at all can be in that state at any moment in life. No one chooses to be a widow or a widower; it is one of the inevitable stages of the married”.

The 57 widows in attendance each received a cloth, a takeaway pack, sobolo and zomkom drinks. The pieces of cloths were donations received from Offinso Area of the Church of Pentecost, Mr. Kwabena Ikeson and the district minister and wife.
