Ministry provides palliative during COVID-19 lockdown
The group gave out such items as, Semovita, tomato puree, salt, rice, spaghetti, maggi, Indomie noodles, garri and onions, among others. Speaking at the event, Senior Pastor of the ministry, Revd. Esther Ozuah, said it became necessary to empathise with fellow brethren. She explained that it was part of the ministry’s contribution to ameliorate people’s sufferings during the lockdown.
She said: “We are not going to stop here. It is going to be a continuous exercise, as we seek to assist our members, so that they won’t feel abandoned. We will also make them financially and economically independent. So, the ministry will continue to assist members in the areas of finance, business, education, career, as well as spiritually and materially.”
The ministry’s General Overseer, Evang. Edison Ozuah, said the package was to assist members cushion the impact of the pandemic. While urging members to pray to God to heal the world of the plague, he said: “We are aware that many of our members need our assistance at this trying period, and so, we have made provision in our own little way that would support them to reduce their suffering.”
A recipient and also a member of the ministry, Mrs. Esther Okeke, described the gesture as a good one that will always encourage members in keeping faith with God.
“It is very good for the ministry to remember people at this time. Presently, we do not have much to eat at home. So, I was happy, when I heard that the ministry was going to give members foodstuff. Everyone is happy and eager to go home and give something to the family. I want to thank God for this gesture. It will be nice, if other ministries can emulate this to let people know that after all, hope is not lost,” she said.
