APPARENTLY sharing the grief of the Ondo State Government and the Agagu’s Family in particular, for the recent double tragedy, General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye led a mam-moth crowd of worshippers at the Redemption Camp to pray against any further tragedies in the country.
October Holy Ghost Service which was dedicated to Youths and titled; ‘The wonders of exploits’, Pastor Adeboye prayed God to wipe away tears from all those who are currently in sorrow.
He urged all participants to rise and pray to God to have mercy on the nation. “Have mercy on Nigeria. Put an end to tragedies in this nation and in all the nations of the world,” he urged. ”In all our families in the country and all the nations represented here and indeed all countries of the world, let there be no more tragedies.
Please God, let there be calm in all the families of the world,” Adeboye stated. ”Put an end to tragedies in the world and in all the nations of the world,” he urged and the congregation echoed the prayer points fervently.
Continuing, Pastor Adeboye hailed the youth for devoting quality time to profitable Kingdom ventures by engaging themselves in soul winning through their various ministrations across the country, stressing that soul winning is a cardinal ingredient of doing exploits.
He was particularly excited by the choir ministrations of the night as well as those preached, saying that there is tremendous hope for the future of the church in particular and the nation as a whole.
Adeboye, however, picked holes in some aspects of the ministrations, noting “as a coach it is extremely difficult to satisfy your coach who will always want the best out of his students.”
Activities marking this year’s youth convention which ended yesterday included a variety of sporting programmes such as chess, scrabble, squash, volley-ball et al, and trophies were presented to regions that excelled during the programme tagged Exploits competition.
Highlight of the night was the presentation of trophies to the wife of the General Over-seer, Pastor (Mrs.) Folu Adebo-ye who bagged the award of Commander of Exploits while her husband, Pastor Adeboye was presented with an award of the Grand Commander of Exploits.
