…As Anglican Church Honours Rivers NUJ Scribe, Others
Christians have been told to put their trust in God who will deliver them from the evil leadership making lives unbearable.
Speaking at a Thanksgiving Service to end the 2022 Women Conference of St. Michael’s Anglican Church, Imogu Parish, Omagwa in Ikwerre Local Government Area on Sunday, a lay preacher, Mrs. Ogechi Amadi reminded believers of God’s promise to destroy every ‘Pharaoh’ on their pursuit.
She however urged them not to relent in prayers, assuring that the present situation would compel God to replicate the drowning of ‘Pharoah and his armies’ in the country.
The preacher who spoke on the theme ‘When I see the Blood, I will pass over’, regretted that bad leadership has plunged the nation into its worse economic crisis.
“The good news is that we have a God that has never changed. He is a patient God, and once the patience is exhausted, He will pursue our stubborn pursuers'”, she said
The preacher went on: If the ‘Angels of Death’ could be moved by the blood of an animal, and bring such misery to the Egyptians, how terrible it would be for our Pharoahs in Nigeria when we apply the blood of Jesus”.
Mrs. Amadi who punctuated her message with worship songs, cautioned Nigerians from supporting or encouraging bad governance, warning that like God did to the Egyptians.
He would not spare any collaborator when He spews His wroth in Nigeria.
The women’s choir had earlier rendered two awe-inspiring songs namely, ‘Akwam Metunu Gi Nobi (let my cries touch your heart oh Lord)’ and ‘Na God I De Please, to usher in the preacher.
Highlight of the event was Award of Excellence for Untiring Zeal to the Service of God, bestowed on the Secretary of the Rivers State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ike Wigodo and 8 others.
In his speech after receiving the award plaque from the Vicar in charge of the church, Rev. Cannon Green Ndubuisi Emmanuel PhD, the Rivers NUJ scribe thanked the women for the recognition.
He described women as the pillars of the church as their place is indispensable in the development and sustainance of the house of God.
Also present at the occasion were members of the State Working Committee of the NUJ led by Chairman, Stanley Job Stanley.
