Christmas : Church feeds 4,739 needy people in Ogun


Over 4,739 needy residents of Abeokuta, the Ogun State  capital, thronged the Treasure House of God on Christmas Day for the church’s annual “Jesus Feast,” meant to cater for them.
The church located on Quarry road, beside Agbeloba area of the town,  distributed liberally, raw beef and rice to each of the 4,739 less – privileged  – comprising widows, widowers, youths, students and physically challenged to make the Yuletide a worthwhile one for them.
The exercise which was made seamless through efficient crowd control and use of  tags as gate passes  for the beneficiaries, was preceded by a short service presided over by the Church’s Associate Pastor, Lenus Taylor.
Taylor told journalists  that the gesture was part  of the church’s ways of sharing the love of God in Christ with the indigents during the Christmas as initiated by the General Overseer, Seye Senfuye.
“The programme is necessitated by the love of God and the love for humanity that the founder of this ministry, Pastor Adeseye Senfuye have for the people and the Christ.
“It is scriptural that we should extend our hand of fellowship to the less-privileged. We have 4,700 gifts for people and the content of a package is meat and rice. We don’t discriminate whether you are a Christian or Muslim.
“No political undertone. This is why we are distributing it in the church.  We have been doing it for some time now and it increases yearly. Last year, 1, 000 people benefited. This year, it is about 5,000. By the grace of God next year, it will get to 50, 000.
“My advice for the people is to continue to pray for those in government so that they will do what is right. Once they do what is right, everyone of us will definitely enjoy it,” Lenus said.
A beneficiary identified as Mrs Olutoyin Adeyemi lauded the church for the gesture.
Olutoyin urged the government, other churches and well-meaning Nigerians to remember the needy members in their midst and assist them.
 “Nigerians should be their brothers’ keeper. Those that have should give to those who don’t have. People should stop accumulating wealth for themselves because it would be useless when they die,” she said.
