Pastors End Service In Liberia
…Pray For Violence Free Elections
Two pastors from the Community of Christ Church Incorporated, Nigeria mission have completed a 70-day intensive evangelism mission across Liberia with a call for peaceful and violence free elections in the country.
Pastors I.I. Umanah, head pastor of the Utu Ikpe Congregation in Akwa Ibom State and Rev. Stephen Ukiwe Oleka of the Family Miracle Center in Obon Town, Akwa Abom State, Nigeria said peace in Liberia means peace in the West African sub-region.
Speaking in separate interview in Monrovia recently, the two Nigerian prelates said during their stay in the country, they held talks with key government officials, including legislators and other local authorities in Montserrado, Sinoe, Bong and Margibi counties.
During their meeting with officials of government, they highlighted the work of the Community of Christ Church in the country and the need for Liberians to pray for peaceful and violence free elections.
The pastors said their trip to Liberia was part of the ‘World Service Corps’ of the Community of Christ Church worldwide, which is aimed at proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in all parts of the world and promote communities of joy, hope, love and peace.
The prelates said while in Liberia, they were also involved in spiritual cleansing and other community works.
