Sunday school children welcoming the Apostle at Ifaka Ube
4 March 2020

It was an amazing and awesome experience for members from Afaha Ube District in South Central Area as Apostle Effiong Ekpenyong visited them on Sunday 23rd February 2020. The Apostle, who was visiting them for the first time this year, was joyfully received by the children's choir and ministers.

In his exhortation from Matthew 5: 44-45, “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Apostle Ekpenyong urged the congregants not to allow the evil they suffer to prevent them from faithfully following the Lord.

He further charged all to pray for those who are not well disposed towards us and desire to contribute to their salvation.

He concluded that God grants grace and salvation to those who do the will of God warning that on no account should we pay evil for evil.

District Elder Armstrong Inyang and District Evangelist Ini Akpan assisted at the altar, twelve souls were sealed, two deacons ordained.
