By Ifeanyi ifedi, Onitsha


No fewer than 13 indigent   members of Fountain of Life Anglican Church (Over comers Assembly)  New Haven Estate Nkwelle-Ezunaka, Oyi LGA, Anambra State have benefited from the food items distributed by their Church.

The food items according to Chief Sir. Chinedu Ezeora the well-fare Committee Chairman was estimated to over ₦500,000 and was distributed to the Church indigent members shortly after Church service at the Church premises.

Distributing the food items, the Priest in charge of the Church Rev. Ossy Oguaka revealed that what they are doing has scriptural back ground. He cited the books of proverb chapter 19vs 17, saying that when you give to the poor, you are lending  to God and God will reward you for what you have done.

He disclosed that there are some people in their Church who don't have something to eat in their homes but if  surprisly  they get  foods  to their homes, they would have joy, stating that his Church deemed it necessary to put Joy in every homes especially in this Christmas season. 

The cleric affirmed that he was the one who initiated the idea and set up the Committees who he said rally round and gathered money to buy the food items, even as he advised Churches and spirited individuals to emulate his Church by giving to the less privileged ones.

" Let's support the less privileged ones among us. In any condition, there must be someone you are better than. Try to give out, no matter how little" Said Rev. Oguaka.

Also commenting, the well-fare committee Chairman, Chief Sir. Chinedu Ezeora rained praises to their Parish Priest, Rev. Ossy Oguaka who he said Holy Spirit directed to set up well-fare committees who organised the event.

He noted that the committees really worked as a team and ensured that all the less privileged ones in their Church collected food items as they planned, explaining that they actually put smiles on the faces of their members.

The Chairman further disclosed that they have not been doing such a thing in their Church until Rev. Oguaka introduced it to them, just as one the well-fare committee members, Mrs Chinyere Izuagba urged the beneficiaries to continue worshipping God so that by next year they would be able to give others.

Among the food items includes; Tubers of yam, Bags of Rice, Cartons of Noddles, Tin tomatoes, Onions, Wrappers, Ground nut Oils, amongst other.

Some of the beneficiaries who spoke and commended Rev. Ossy Oguaka and wellfare Committee members includes; Mrs Rose Ejimofor, Representatives of Okpompi Vigilantes in Nkwelle-Ezunaka, Mrs Iloegbune Nnenna and Mrs.Egbo Jane.
