Fourteen Ex-convicts Complete School of Restoration

The Royalhouse Chapel International has held its third graduation for fourteen students of the School of Restoration in a colourful ceremony in Accra.
The students made up of ex-convicts, drug addicts, alcoholics and prostitutes graduated after a year’s training on how to re-integrate into society after going wayward.
The students were thought topics such as forgiveness, anger management, how to handle depression, dealing with fear, holiness, positive self image, temperament, the love of God and Information Communication Technology in the one year course.
Rev. Mrs. Rita Korankye Ankrah, Director of the school who was proud of the transformation the students have gone through during their stay at the school noted that the school has been the avenue for people who have been described as outcasts to regain hope.
“they are not only thought this but also have a practical session where successful people come and share their life experience with them to encourage them and give them optimism that they can also make it,” she said.
She said the school over the years has been recording increasing numbers of students from seven in 2013 to fourteen in 2015.
She was thankful to all who volunteered their professionalism to help their brothers and sister have a better life.
Sharing his experience, Lord, who was a Police Officer till he was wrongfully accused and sentenced to prison said he was filled with bitterness but had a change of mind when the Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah visited the prison to minister to inmates.
He said after he was released after serving his ten year prison term, he decided to join the school to help him rebuild his life.
“Through the support of the school I am now employed as a security officer,” he said.
Another student, Ebenezer before being introduced to the school had left the University of Ghana because of drugs.
He said he did so much drugs that he ended up owing which forced him to run away from the University of Ghana in his third year.
After joining the school he has been able to quit drugs and has gone back to the University of Ghana and is now in his final year reading biochemistry.
“I realized through the teaching in the school of restoration that I had so much gift in me that if I do make good use of it, God will question me,” he said.
Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah on his part encouraged the public to show care and support to such people as they can change for the better.
