SPEECH OF THE ECWA MEN FELLOWSHIP INTERNATIONAL LEADER DURING THE 2020 WEEK OF PRAYER

GREETINGS

I feel privileged to welcome you to our weeklong program for the ECWA Men Fellowship International. On behalf of the EXCO, let me thank our Lord for the wonderful gift of life and time that he has bestowed upon us. As we share during the week, the many activities that we have lined up during this week, may the love of God be with you.

CONDOLENCES

It is God who gives life and who decides when it ends. Many of our men lost their lives due to insurgency, banditry, kidnappers and herdsmen attack. We are with you in this difficult moment and we hope your soul finds solace in the Lord. We will pray for God to help you to overcome the pain you feel. May we stand and observe a minute of silence.

APPRECIATION

I want to use this medium to thank the ECWA Executive, Christian Education Department, Women Fellowship, Youth Fellowship and all the DCCs that supported by contributing and the twenty-two (22) DCCs that were present at the burial of our vice leader Elder Hon Julius Bamidele Ishola. I must comment on the Pastors, Women, Youth and the Men of the South-West Zone for their commitment to ensuring the success of the burial. May God increase our love for one another. Happy survival from COVID-19, the Lord will continue to guide and protect His children from any pandemic in Jesus name but remember to always wear your facemask while in a public gathering and washing of your hands.
