Taraba State Governor, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku has challenged christians to donate generously to help build a befitting place of worship where people can make genuine supplications to God Almighty.
Governor Ishaku said this yesterday during the Launching of 120 million Naira for the building of a Proposed Church Auditorium in Mararaba Baisa, Donga Local Government Area.
The Governor who was the Chairman of the occasion told the congregation to give priority to gathering that is Godly and to also avail themselves of his divine blessings and providence.
To the building committee, the Governor advised them to construct a road that will give clear view so that the great edifice that would be built should be seen clearly from the road.
He commended Senator Emmanuel Bwacha for replicating what he did in Abuja, saying that, it is a thing of joy that he has come to do same in his village.
He beckoned on the gathering to donated generously for the project so that it will be completed speedily.
The Governor maintained that Senator Bwacha is a special gift to the CRC-N and prayed for God’s spirit to guide him rightly at all times and charged him not to relent in contributing to the growth of evangelism in Southern Taraba.
He praised the people of Mararaba on the level of their commitment by completing the foundation that is now ready for further elevation.
In his speech, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha stated that he was touched that the old building can no longer accommodate the numbers of worshippers that worship in the church.
He revealed that with the cooperation of his people and support from his colleagues, associates and partners, his village will soon have a befitting place of worship and gave God the glory for his divine Providence.
Speaking during the launching, the Host pastor, Rev Emmanuel Sam said building a church of this magnitude at this time of recession is amazing and also aimed at appreciating and uplifting God’s glorious name.
Rev. Emmanuel Sam further explained that the present worship center has become too small that during Sunday worships it hardly contains up to 30 percent of those that have come to worship, forcing some to returned home without attending the service.
He said from time to time God calls his people to build a worship and prayer house for him to his glory and quoted from the book Haggai 2:1-8 during the time of prophet Haggai, the reign of King Darius and Zerubbabel of Judah, similar building was raised to reverence God.
The cleric urged all to give generously onto God and disclosed that the project has gulped about 17 million Naira and stressed that God still wants his children to come together and give for the completion of the project.
The highest donation of 34 million Naira came from Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, his friends, colleagues and associates.
The Church Auditorium when completed has about 1200 seating Capacity.
