The minister in-charge of one of the Church of Christ, COC, congregations in the United Kingdom, has said the Akwa Ibom state commissioner for information and strategy, Comrade Ini Ememobong, has completely re-defined his Christian life with his selfless humanitarian disposition.
Evangelist Usen Ekpo stated this recently in London, while interacting with directors and staff of Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Information and Strategy, who attended the Sunday worship service at the Church of Christ, London.
The minister, who was speaking after the morning worship church service disclosed that it was the state information helmsman, Comrade Ini Ememobong, who picked him up after his political debacle, stood by him in his preaching Ministry years back in the state, got him a vehicle and was even instrumental to his successful re-location to the United Kingdom.
“His visible selfless sacrifices toward the work of humanity and the persistent desire to help others and see them grow has completely re-redefined my Christianity.
“Comrade Ini Ememobong distinctively stands out among his contemporaries in humanitarian service. He has helped so many people to grow and find pastures even outside the shores of Nigeria.
“My message to all those who have benefitted from the commissioner of information is that they should go and see how to help other people as Comrade Ini Ememobong helped them.
“For me, having been brought here to UK by Comrade Ini Ememobong who provided me with the Visa to cross-over, I have also ensured that other people benefit from me too,” Ekpo emphasised.
Earlier in a sermon titled, “Beware lest you forget the Lord,”drawn from 2 Kings 17:7-18 and Deut 15, Brother Fortune Sampson urged Christians to always reverence and adore God as the sovereign Ruler of the universe and resist the temptation of seeing themselves as the force behind their successes and achievements in life.
He listed things that can make people to forget the Lord as the sovereign Ruler of the universe to include: acquisition of worldly things, pride and arrogance, successes and attainments of greater heights in life as well as idolatry,among others.
The edifying church service, moderated by Brother Daniel Danquah, was attended by brethren mostly from Nigeria and Ghana with the wife of the commissioner for information and strategy, Barr Sandra-Emejuiwe Ini Ememobong, as one of the regular worshippers.
Special features of the worship service were: Sunday Schoolclasses, singing of hymns and choruses as well as prayers of blessings for Comrade Ini Ememobong and a successful trip for the delegation from Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Information and Strategy, currently in United Kingdom for a workshop.
The Ministry’s delegation was later treated to a sumptuous lunch by the hierarchy of the Church.
