Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi in an interview on Joy News’ News Desk on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, stated that the church has always worked earnestly to support its members.

“We have not failed humanity and Ghanaians. History will bear us out that various educational institutions that we have in this country were put up by Christian institutions.

“When somebody finds himself or herself on the wrong side of the law and is incarcerated, Jesus will ask us ‘When I went there [to prison], what did you do?’ So, it is based on this that we are doing what we have done. It is just awakening that has come to us that we can’t continue to neglect these people,” he stated.
