September 30, 2015 By Ibrahim Tarawallie
General Overseer and Senior Pastor of Christ Revival Evangelistic Ministries (Sanctuary Praise Church) has offered prayer and consoled flood victims currently residing at the National Stadium in Freetown.
Accompanied by his wife and other senior members of the church late on Monday, 28 September, Evangelist Victor Ajisafe also used the opportunity to donate food and non-food items worth millions of Leones to the flood victims.
He prayed for the nation, and victims that are sleeping at the national stadium, as well as a speedy restoration of those that have lost their properties during the flood.
The man of God described the crisis as one that occurred through natural means, adding that it was the responsibility of everyone to help those who are affected as a result of the disaster and prayed that such does not befall the nation again.
“We do believe that these items we have donated and the prayer I have offered will help to console you all,” he said. “No condition is permanent and no matter what you are going through God will help you. God cares for you and I want you to know that the Church loves you. No matter what you have lost very soon you will get it back in Jesus name.”
According to Evangelist Ajisafe, the church’s intervention is to compliment the effort of the government at this crucial period to restore the dignity of the victims so that they can return to their normal lives.
He extended the church’s appreciation to the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs and other organisations and workers that are working relentlessly to address the needs of the victims.
Receiving the items on behalf of the government, Director of Children’s Affairs in the Ministry of Social Welfare, Kadie Buya-Kamara thanked Evangelist Ajisafe and Sanctuary Praise Church for their timely donation, adding that what they have done was a clear demonstration that the church encourages people and also seeks their welfare.
“You are not only a church where people go and pray but you also reaching out to the needy. This is a clear demonstration of your leadership that cares for others,” she said.
Ms. Kamara promised the leadership of the church that the items would serve their right purpose and warned all those that do not have business at the stadium and yet pretend to be victims to desist from doing such act.
The victims were full of praise for Evangelist Ajisafe and his church for their magnanimous support and encouraged others to emulate him.
The items donated include, 30 bags of rice, bales of used clothes and shoes for men, women and children, 100 pairs of plastic slippers for adults, 96 plastic sandals for children, 4 cartoons of corn-milk baby food, five cartoons of Nutrillion baby food and five cartoons of Saba foam, among others.
