Others Ministering include: Rev. G.J. Ugwujah, Bishop Alphonsus Ubido and the Host, Bishop Elect Godwin Igwillo who is the Incumbent Chairman of PFN Nnewi North.

The program is organised to stimulate and galvanize the body of Christ in Nnewi North and environs, unto good work and for the perfection of the saints.

Meanwhile, Apostle Alexander Gwamfy who preached today ministered on a very impactful Message that emphasised the importance of a good name being better than riches;using an incident that happened many years ago in Ghana to illustrate his message.

According to him, a man named Mr Smith who was the Chairman of the Cocoa Board in Ghana chose to have a good name instead of using his position to amass wealth for himself.

He gave a lot of Ghanaians Scholarships even without knowing them and refused to use his position for personal aggrandizement. Before he died, he gathered his children and explained to them that even though he wasn’t leaving material things for them, he was leaving a good name.

He apologized for not leaving riches for them. Many years later, after one of the daughters finished her Masters Degree in London, England, she went for a job interview somewhere.

Lo! and behold! to cut the long story short, it was one of those Ghanains that the father gave Scholarship that was one of those in charge of the Interview Panel.

This is how this lady got a lucrative job in London embellished with all the peps of office like a good car and well furnished accommodation. Of course, the rest became history.

He therefore called on the Ministers to choose a good name rather than filthy lucre. He also used the examples of King Solomon and Daniel to butress his points. It was a very impressive Ministration which earned him a standing ovation. Dr. Joe Ugwumba was the Chairman of the planning committee and he did a very good job.

Those present were Archbishop (Prof.) Emmadavid Okafoagu JP, Rt. Rev. Tony Okeke, Bishop Dr. Ozioma Festus Ozoemena, of Holy Ghost New Life International Church, 47, Ezemewi Rd, by Ibeto Junction, Near Teaching Hospital, Nnewi Anambra State, who just came back from the United States of America. Bishop Jude Godwin,Rev. Dr. Chris Chukwu, Rev. Lawrence Emerum and a host of others.

The program continues tomorrow Friday, the 15th of September 2023, while the PFN Chairman’s Bishopric Consecration holds on Saturday the 16th of September at the same venue.
