Kasim Sumaina in Abuja
In a bid to provide succour to the less-privileged and relieve them of their pain and suffering, Haggai International Nigeria, Abuja chapter, on Tuesday donated cash and toiletries to 50 patients at Maitama General Hospital.
The Chairman, Haggai International Nigeria, Abuja chapter, Dr. Oluwole Aina, noted that the move was part of activities marking Haggai International’s Day of evangelism.
Aina, while donating the items, informed that “Haggai International, marks its day of evangelism on every February 27 in which this year the Abuja Chapter has decided to visit hospitals to pray with the patients and share the healing power of Jesus Christ who died for man’s salvation.”
He revealed that the choice of the hospital was to provide succour to the less-privileged and share the word of God with them.
He said: “Every year, we celebrate Haggai International Day of evangelism and this year, we decided to visit patients in the hospital and share the healing power of our lord Jesus Christ and we shared gifts with them.”
He noted that they were able to reach out to over 50 patients in Maitama.
He, however, observed that “no man living in Maitama will bring his/her ward to this hospital; the patients are in need of support. We are happy for doing God’s work.”
Similarly, Venerable Obioma Onwuzurumba, a priest with the Anglican church and a member of Haggai International expressed joy with the outreach.
According to him, “Haggai International is an institute where religious leaders are trained which explains why I am part of the group to support the less privileged while sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
“Today is our day of evangelism and we go round sharing the gospel with all and sundry.”
Also, the Compound Officer, Maitama General Hospital, Binta Ayodele, thanked the group for their donations, adding that the donations came with prayers, which the patients also needed.
She, however, revealed that many patients wee in great need and called on other organisations to join the group in providing succour to them.
