ROYAL LADIES Ministry, the women’s wing of Royalhouse Chapel International, is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a series of events and activities aimed at empowering more women for the betterment of their livelihood and careers.
The ministry, which has over the years helped to empower women by being a link for woman-to-woman support and encouragement, would hold national and international conferences, the first of which is today at the University of Ghana, Legon.
Speaking at the launch of the 20 th anniversary in Accra, Rev Mrs Rita Korankye Ankrah, president of the ministry and First Lady of Royalhouse Chapel, said the ministry is moving further in its quest to strengthen the agency of women with the commencement of plans to build an ultra-modern conference centre on the ministry’s land at Oyibi in the Greater Accra Region.
The facility would comprise of hostels, conference halls, dining or cafeteria and other amenities for the women of the church and other groups.
She said it would be a place for abused women and a centre for vocational training as well as a camp site to teach teenagers how to cook, take care of themselves and take care of their homes.
‘It will be a place to wait upon the Lord, we will train young brides on homecare and management and provide a home for female ex-convicts who have no place to go to,’ she said.
Through her leadership, the atmosphere for women to build personal relationship with Jesus Christ and have an encounter with God has been created.
The ministry provides group Bible studies where women develop good prayer habits and gives access to resource persons giving talks on legal matters, marriage and relationships, health issues, and other tools important for success in all endeavours and spheres of life.
The ministry has also undertaken various social programmes of giving scholarships to needy but brilliant children, soft loans to traders and donations to less privileged homes and facilities across the country.
Women have indeed been blessed as many receive Christ as their Lord and Saviour and their lives are transformed, have renewed hope, and joy that there is a God who loves, cares for and will never forsake them.
