…Condoles With Late Chief Jonah Tamuno Family
The Amanyanabo of ancient Ele Kingdom, King Felix Tamunoseipiriala Okuru, Ahas stressed the need for Christians to invest in the house of God.
King Felix Tamunoseipiriala Okuru made the call while speaking as royal father of the day during the Harvest Thanksgiving of Logos Ministries, Ogu Chuku sandfield, Centre of Explosion in Ogu/Bolo Local Government Area on Sunday.
The Ele Monarch noted that when Christians praise God and reverence him as their Lord and personal Saviour, he would honour them, and enjoined all to learn how to invest in the house of God which is scriptural.
According to him, notwithstanding his schedule of activities, and for his passion for the work of God, he had to attend the harvest personally, and promised a donation of N200,000 to assist the church building as well as tile the church auditorium.
The traditional ruler commended the Pastor of the church, Pastor Godwill Dere Fiabema for building an edifice for people to worship God, and prayed God to continue to bless him, give him the courage to continue in his service to God and mankind, and assured of his assistance at all times.
Earlier in his sermon, the guest preacher, Bishop Tubman Fiabema who is the Presiding Bishop and General Overseer of El-Shaddi Ministries International admonished Christians to honour God as he will also honour them.
Bishop Fiabema noted that when people honour their Father in heaven and also honour their fathers on earth they have their blessings, stressing that it is scriptural to respect fathers for their blessings.
The man of God further said for God to bless his children, they must honour him with good substances as God's blessing brings peace, riches and added no sorrow, pointing out that the table of the Lord is contemptable, hence the importance to give for God to bless them.
Meanwhile, the Amanyanabo of Ele Kingdom, King Felix Tamunoseipiriala Okuru, Apina VII, after the service, paid a condolence visit to the wife of late Chief Jonah Tamuno of Furubowarifamama War Canoe House, Mrs. Belema Jonah Tamuno at their country home, Tende Ama, Ogu.
Speaking during the visit, King Okuru described her late husband as a lively person, a dependable ally, a man of the people, a straight forward man and astute politician whose antecedents would not be easily forgotten.
The Amanyanabo of Ele Kingdom prayed God to repose his soul and give the family fortitude to bear the irreparable loss as they will miss his fatherly, brotherly and friendly advice and care.
Responding on behalf of the family, Nicholas Omieibi thanked the Royal Father for condoling with the family at this moment of grief and prayed that God will give the family grace to bear the loss.
