Ã¢â‚¬Å“So we are donating the foodstuff to be of help to both the Christians and the people of other religions, to give the victims helping hand.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The church is the light of the world that is delivering the world out of poverty, lack, sickness, and diseases, and from all oppressions of the devil.Ã¢â‚¬Â He added.
He also noted that a welfare package had also been put in place for the church members affected by the flood across the state, saying no one should be permitted to suffer.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are all children of God, we should be of a helping hand to each other, and that is what we are doing which we shall continue to do.
Ã‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“The mandate of this great commission is to liberate the world from all oppression of the devil through the preaching of the word of faith. Poverty is part of the oppression of the devil.Ã¢â‚¬Â
