Spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, during his appreciation to God since the church was founded, says he has no apology to those who are envious of his prosperity and the miracles God has used him to perform.
The cleric during a special mass organized to celebrate his 24th anniversary of priesthood, on Sunday, offered prayers to God for Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, admonished members and all others who support his ministry both spiritually and financially, asking God to protect.
“I am praying for Gov Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Bishop CIC Onaga, Adoration members and anybody that contributed to the success of Adoration ministry Enugu. I pray that God will protect everybody so that enemies will not destroy them.
“I thank God who is doing all these miracles in Adoration ministry and also who made me prosperous to help the poor. Some people are saying that Fr Mbaka is using charm to perform a miracle and I accepted because the Eucharistic celebration and chaplet is my charm. If Eucharistic celebration and chaplet is a charm, then I have a big charm that protects me and members of Adoration ministry Enugu. I told them that it’s divine, Eucharistic gift. I started the work as a poor priest but today God has made me prosperous.
“Money is envy. I have no apology to those who are envying me because of my prosperity. At the time I had one shoe, one trouser, one sultan. All the people I begged for help didn’t help me. Now that I work had to make money to help the poor, they say Mbaka is doing business. Is it better to be lazy? I can’t be lazy. I have to do things to help the poor”, he said.
“This is my 24 years of active spiritual and dynamic priesthood, 24 years of good health; 24 years of miracles from God; 24 years of hard apostolic work; 24 years in the hand of God. Adoration ministry is now in America and another part of the world. Adoration has remained in the hand of God,” he said.
