Christmas Day : Church Feeds 12,000 Needy In Ogun



Babalola Gafar,
Abeokuta

Thousands of needy residents of Abeokuta, the Ogun State  capital, thronged the Treasure House of God on Christmas Day for the church’s 4th annual “Jesus Feast,” meant to cater for them.

The church located on Quarry road, beside Agbeloba area of the town,  distributed liberally, raw beef and rice to each of the 12, 000 Less privileged, comprising widows, widowers, youths, students, both Muslims and Christians  and physically challenged to make the Yuletide a worthwhile one for them.

The chairman of the  feast committee, Deacon Kayode Ogunjimi told reporters that the the treasure house of God has  been feeding  the less privileged every Christmas in the last four years.

 Ogunjimi added that the gesture was part  of the church’s ways of sharing the love of God in Christ with the indigents and non - indigents during the Christmas.

He said: "We are looking between 10,000 to 12,000 of people to give our gifts to because this is the 4th edition and we believe by his mercy,  God as been doing wonders through the hand of the pastoral council at large. 

"As the the 4th edition,  last year we did 7000 plus and we believe this year we will get double of that figure in between 10,000 and  12,000 people, we want to believe God  will take care of the less privilege."

He therefore urged the government, other churches and well-meaning Nigerians to remember the needy members in their midst and assist them.

One of the beneficiaries, identified as Bolaji Adebeso, lauded the church for the show of love to them, saying that all the beneficiaries head will continue to pray for the organisers.
