Mrs. Njideka Ezenwe of All Saints Anglican Church, Samaru Zaria has attested to God’s goodness upon her and her family. She made this known in the same Church on Sunday 13th March, 2022. The testifier narrated her ordeal of over three months at the hospital and thanked God for annulling an already booked surgery and for His other blessings upon her and entire family asking Him to keep directing and sustaining them.

In the same atmosphere of gratitude to God, the family of Dr and Mrs. Chukwumerije dedicated her set of twins to God with the Vicar, Ven. Emeka Etuka praying that God keeps and equips both parents to train the babies in His way.
Building his message on the topic ‘Putting off the Bodily Sins of the Flesh,’ Prof George Ndukwe of the same Church charged Christians to banish every form of interference from the flesh so that their journey to the Golden City may not be thwarted. He noted that Lent is a period when the people of God are under compulsion by Church arrangement and calendar to fast and pray but strengthened that every Christian is meant to observe the two exercises all year round because they are in constant war with the enemy.
“The foundation of Adam was under siege but he did not know it.” Prof Ndukwe intimated. “He was not battle ready and it was taken away from him. The same Satan came to Jesus after a voice from heaven declared Him God’s Beloved in Luke 3:22 but He fasted asking for spiritual strength and that the will of God should be done, so that what happened to Adam will not happen to Him. Your ability to survive depends on how much you communicate with your God. Victory comes when you know the God you are serving. You must put away any ministration from the flesh because it makes you to lose heaven – you can sacrifice Eternal Life because of it.”
Stressing that the Church is the only business that Jesus left on earth, the minister explained that Peter and his companions toiled all night and caught nothing because they went back to their fishing business that Jesus had banned them from; and nudged those who have been given any task from God to keep at it. “Go and occupy your position so that in the end you will say that you were here today.” He guided.
