It was a joyful moment for the members of Itukho congregation in Ikot Udom District as Apostle Effiong Ekpenyong of the South Central Area of Nigeria, accompanied by District Elder Armstrong Inyang, dedicated a new church building on Sunday 29th December 2019.
For some time now, the members had been worshipping in an open space after their erstwhile church building was destroyed by a heavy windstorm.
Apostle Ekpenyong while thanking God for His exceeding grace, expressed his gratitude to our District Apostle and Lead Apostle for their support. He equally thanked all the members for their sacrifices and labour of love towards the completion of the project.
He exhorted the congregants with a text from Psalm 40:5, “Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.”
The Apostle called on all to always glorify God who has made us rich in love, peace, faith, hope and grace.
He further talked about the wonderful works of God, His thoughts and favour towards mankind which are beyond human comprehension.
In his conclusion, the Apostle said that we can only glorify God if we trust Him implicitly.
District Elder Armstrong Inyang, District Evangelist Donatus Akpan and Community Evangelist Ime Ekanem were called to serve.
