6000 ministers have already received Pastor Chris’ help
A few weeks ago, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome announced that he would start helping ministers in dire need through a donation. Now, almost three weeks later, Pastor Chris has already managed to distribute food relief packages to 6000 ministers.
Because of the Coronavirus, people all over the world are going through a rough time, and that is also the case for some pastors.
Chris Oyakhilome, therefore, decided to give a helping hand, and so far, the help has reached ministers in 16 countries.
Those countries are Canada, the UK, South Africa, Senegal, India, Republic of Benin, the Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Nigeria, South Sudan, Chad, Zambia, Botswana and Ghana.
An instruction from God
The Christ Embassy leader presented the initiative to help ministers suffering due to the COVID-19 pandemic during his “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” broadcast on May 23rd.
“There are pastors who are impoverished by this situation. This crisis. There is no way that you can know all of them, but some of them were brought into very desperate circumstances. They have no food, no money, nothing! This week, I want us to do something if we can find them, if we can get to know who and where they are,” Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said during the show.
Furthermore, he stated that it was an instruction of the spirit of God to initiate the project, which has gotten the name Global Emergency Food Relief for Pastors and Ministers of the Gospel.
Ministers expect and long for help
During the live prayer service, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome explained that the ministers who are longing for help are praying for and expecting a miracle.
“God expects us to be the answer to their prayers,” the Pastor added.
You too can help by visiting icm.ngo/pastorsrelief and nominating a pastor who needs a relief package. You can also sponsor this initiative by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Help thy neighbor
Amid the presentation of the donation, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome quoted the Bible, indicating that Christians should always help others in need.
“Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. 33 I have not coveted anyone’s silver or gold or clothing. 34 You yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions. 35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive,” it says in Acts 20:32-35.
