The Most Rev. Nicholas D. Okoh has defined Godly act as what one does to alleviate the suffering of others. He gave this definition at the foundation laying ceremony of the Orphanage project, a baby of the Cathedral Church of the Advent, Life Camp Abuja. The project which is under the Chairmanship of Ms. Amal Pepple has a deadline of October for completion to coincide with the Silver Jubilee Celebration of the Anglican Diocese of Abuja.
While giving his brief address at the foundation stone laying ceremony, the Primate of all Nigeria, the Most Rev. Nicholas D. Okoh stated that the spread of the gospel has to be carried out from different approaches. He said that evangelism could be through education that is the building of schools for learning, through preaching and teaching as done in Churches or through building of homes and orphanages for the less fortunate in the society. He emphasized that the Church has a duty to provide for people who are less fortunate; adding that Christians have to be one another’s keeper.
After the address, the foundation of the Orphanage at Gwarimpa Abuja was laid and prayers were said for the successful completion of the project.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the orphanage project, Ms. Amal Pepple has expressed her vision for the orphanage home and the necessity of building such for less fortunate children.
Also in an interview with the ACNN News Crew, the Architect in charge of the project, Arch. Olumuyiwa Taiwo has described the proposed edifice as one that will have a very conducive environment with all the necessary facilities a child needs to grow adequately
And the Vicar of the Cathedral Church of the Advent Life Camp, Ven. Emmanuel Adekola has stated with confidence that by God’s grace the building will be completed before deadline given to them.
It would be recalled that this project is one of the many that was initiated by the Primate of all Nigeria Anglican Communion, the Most Rev. Nicholas D. Okoh in preparation for the Silver Jubilee Celebration of the Abuja Anglican Diocese which is to take place in November 2014. The other projects include the Church planting project by the various Archdeaconries and the water project by the women in the diocese.
