President Lt Gen Seretse Khama Ian Khama has bestowed a Christian ministry, World Community Counseling Centre (WCCC) with a certificate of appreciation.
The Tlokweng-based ministry, which has Pastor Justin Ngoma as its general overseer, was given the certificate for its humanitarian role throughout the country. The certificate, which was handed over to the church last week, was paraded at the church service on Sunday, October 28.
According to Pastor Ngoma, it was an honour for the ministry to receive recognition from the highest office in the country. “It is always a challenge to do God’s work in a foreign land, especially me because I did not come here to look for a job or start a ministry,” he said.
The Democratic Republic of Congo born pastor who came to the country as a refuge added that WCCC focused on providing care and support to vulnerable communities hence its vision of giving to the less privileged.
The former Dukwi refugee camp resident further encouraged community members to develop a habit of sharing with the less privileged members of the community, saying that the government alone would not accomplish everything on its own.
“Our President is doing that because it is God’s mission, we must help him fill the gap,” he added. He added that people must give and help others without considering what they would gain in return.
“Look at me, I am 50 years old, I do not have a house, I do not have a car but, I have children,” said the televangelist, whose pentecostal ministry owns Blessing TV, which is the country’s first free to air Christian television channel.
WCCC humanitarian engagements included wheelchair donations to various government institutions such as hospitals and individual members of the community. The ministry also reached out to widows annually through donating food and toiletry as well as caring for them and providing free counseling to all members of the society regardless of their religious association.
WCCC has also supplied and donated various prisons in the country with free television sets for inmates and has assisted several youths with scholarships. ENDS.
