…govt to emulate the Church of God
By Kolawole Olayinka, Abeokuta
Not fewer than 12,000 needy residents of Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, thronged the Treasure House of God, Agbeloba on Christmas Day for the church’s 4th annual “Jesus Feast”.
The church located at Quarry Road, beside Agbeloba area of the town, distributed liberally, raw beef and rice to each of the 12, 000 less privileged, comprising widows, widowers, youths, students, both Muslims and Christians and physically challenged to make the Yuletide a worthwhile celebration.
The chairman of the feast committee, Deacon Kayode Ogunjimi said that the Treasure House of God has been feeding the less privileged every Christmas for over 4years uninterrupted.
Deacon Ogunjimi maintained that the gesture was part of the church’s ways of sharing the love of God in Christ with the indigene and none indigence during Christmas.
His words, “We are looking between 10,000 to 12,000 people to give our gifts to because this is the 4th edition and we believe by his mercy, God has been doing wonders through the hand of the pastoral council at large.
“As the 4th edition, last year we did 7000 plus and we believe this year we will get double of that figure in between 10,000 and 12,000 people, we want to believe God will take care of the less privileged.
He, therefore, urged the government, other churches, and well-meaning Nigerians to remember the needy members in their midst and assist them.
One of the beneficiaries, identified as Bolaji Adebesin lauded the church for the gesture saying that all the beneficiaries head will continue to pray for the organizers.
