The Jungle Warfare School (JWS) of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has organized its 3rd quarterly religious and induction church parade for the newly appointed Commanding Officer, Lt Col Peter Amoah on Sunday, 30 August 2020 at the Tiger Garden of the school in the Eastern region.
Preaching the sermon on the theme ‘Fear Not’, Imam Musah Abubakari said one of God’s key to fearlessness is believing in Him.
He added that churches have the duty to promote spiritual virtues that would help propel the nation’s development, adding that, the acquisition of intellectual knowledge without the virtue of the fear of God would be meaningless.
Pastor Emmanuel Osei Bonsu advised the Officers, Men and Civilian employese of JWS to put themselves together and work hard in order to ensure self-sufficiency and nation building. He said the Jungle Warfare School and the entire Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) had an onerous responsibility to display the qualities of maturity, so as not to be branded as agents of destruction.
Pastor EO Bonsu further called on soldiers of JWS to desist from engaging in illegal and violent activities and stressed the need to involve the military in programmes of the church to harness their potentials for nation development, and not for conflict and political activities.
Giving his remark, Lt Col Peter Amoah thanked God, Higher Command, past and current Junglers, and the entire Jungle Warfare School for their support.
He noted that, with the collective efforts of all “junglers” he would be able to achieve his aim as the CO and pledged his maximum support for the school since the school was faced with infrastructural problems. Lt Col Peter Amoah also disclosed that Sunday, 25 October 2020 would mark the first homecoming of all Junglers.
