Adventist church in Benue has been giving their all in helping persons displaced by the herdsmen crisis in Benue state. The IDPs are currently taking refuge at the Abagena IDPs camp in the outskirt of Makurdi town.
Flagging off the outreach weekend at the camp, District Pastor of the Church, Ibrahim Maviah said the programme which was being sponsored by the Adventist Men Organisation, AMO, also involved the distribution of relief materials and food the to IDPs.
Pastor Maviah said, “apart from the free medical services, we are also here to feed and cloth the displaced persons in line with the teachings of Christ which entails that whatever we do for the less privileged is invariably done for Christ.
“Moreover we all know that health workers across the country are currently on strike so the government can do little in that area at this particular time hence the IDPs are currently facing a huge challenge so this is the ideal time for the outreach.
“God willing, we intend to reach other camps in the state after which we hope to embark on community services in schools and market places. So we are inviting other church’s and persons of goodwill to join the train.”
Pastor Ibrahim Maviah has given more updates on the evangelistic program at Abegana camp. according to him, 95 souls were baptized and over hundred are still in baptismal class.
A total of 95 Souls are baptized at the Hope for the IDP project, a Pentecost II evangelistic program at Abagana Camp in Benue. Over a hundred are still in baptismal class. We are grateful to all that supported the program thus far. This is but the beginning, kindly partner with us or support the program. Thanks
