Akahi Tutors: PASS AT ONCE in 2023 JAMB, Post UTME, SSCE, Pre-Degree, JUPEB & School of Nursing @ Akahi Tutors, Ile-ife.
A Christian in the state of Bayelsa State has explained why he and other brothers decided to hold their Sunday service over the weekend in a beer parlor and other open spaces.
According to the resident who shared their ordeal with reporters on Monday, the state’s most recent floods destroyed numerous residential homes and churches.
The resident, who spoke anonymously with Vanguard Newspaper regarding the development, stated that many Christians held their Sunday worship services in open-air drinking establishments and other flood-free spaces on Sunday, defying their heavily flooded surroundings.
He claims that the flood that has ravaged the majority of the state prevented a lot of residents from getting to their places of worship, forcing some to look for other places of worship.
According to the report, residents whose churches were also flooded held Sunday worship services in barbing saloons and rented hotel rooms and halls, according to Akahi News.
The resident said that some clergy also went to the various camps for internally displaced people (IDP) to minister to the people and hold worship services there.
However, one worshiper, who went by the name Daukoru Grey, spoke with reporters and said,I observed true Christians today who, despite all odds, sought out flood-free locations for church services.
It doesn’t matter where you are.The presence of God is what matters, as the Bible states that “whereever one or two are gathered in His name, the presence of God is there.”
