Clothing materials and toiletries estimated at above N75,000 has been donated to the inmates of Ahoada Federal Prisons by Egi District of Adventist Men Organisations (AMO).
The gesture, according to the chairman of the organisation, Elder Elele Omere, was part of the activities to mark the end of a two-week evangelism carried out at Itu-Ogba in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area.
Elder Omere stated that having preached the need for salvation, “as we await the second coming of Jesus Christ, it becomes necessary to assist those in distress and the needy in the society”.
He said the inmates of prisons and other human beings deserve the word of God “for all have sin”.
“By preaching to prisoners, we are able to make them sober, reflect on their past activities and work towards repentance”, he explained.
Elder Omere, who disclosed that the crusade, held at Itu-Ogba, was “designed to create more awareness on the need for people to live in peace, seek divine intervention, in every situation and believe in God as ultimate in providing solution to all problems”.
He advised the people to seek salvation rather than material things of the world, “and expect Christ the saviour whose second coming is expected”.
During the two weeks evangelism, prayers were offered to the sick, while other special features include lecture on good health, joy of fellowship, spiritual upliftment and counseling.
Among those who conducted the programmes are Elder E. Ile, P.N. Onyiri and A.J. Osah.
