President of God in All Evangelical Ministry, (GIAEM), Rev. Michael Adebisi Okunade, has called on well meaning Nigerians to cultivate the habit of always giving back to the society that produced them.
Okunade, a London based minster of the gospel said there are so many needs in the country and the government alone cannot meet every of such needs. “It is true the government is responsible for the needs of the masses, but since the government alone cannot meet every need at once, well meaning Nigerians who have been blessed by God should be able to look back to support the society that produced them.”
Okunade, a product of Kersey Children’s Home established in 1926 as the very first of such homes in Nigeria, stated further that, “I am a product of the Kersey Children’s home in Ogbomosho where I was taken to after I lost my mother as a little baby. After many years, I came with my entourage from the United Kingdom to visit the home and I found that there was a meeting going on. I later found that the management of the home were deliberating on how to distribute the remaining children to functioning homes then close down the place because there was no sponsorship again. I was moved and God used me to give back to the home, which is now doing fine today.”
He added that, “the home would be 80 years old in February 2016 and it is going to be a great event.”
The London-based minister of the gospel began his ministry several years in London where he worked diligently in various capacities under the leadership of Pastor Fashina of the Christ Apostolic Church, London. He served under Fashina until 1998 when he got the call to establish God In All Evangelical Ministry in 1999.
Meanwhile, the God In All Evangelical Ministry Support International Ministry, an arm of the ministry that reaches out to the needy has forged ahead in fulfilling its philosophy and slogan that, “sympathy is not enough, support service is our dream.”
The outfit has continued several projects in villages in Osun State of Nigeria. Recently, it has delivered borehole projects in Kajola, a linear settlement in Atakunmosa West Local Government Area of Osun State and Omo Ijesha in Oriade Local Government Area of same state, where it has just completed an industrial borehole with the capacity to supply 3,000 litres of portable water.
Apart from the borehole projects, GIAEM Support International Ministry has supported electricity projects in various communities, its widows support initiatives has also provided succour to several widows and other less privileged people.
The ministry has also gone ahead to carry out interventions beyond the shores of the nation as it has sustained welfare activities in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world.
According to Okunade, “God has helped us to support the homeless in the United Kingdom as well, when people lose their jobs, they go into depression, many would not be able to feed, the ministry has been able to reach out to a lot of people in this category especially in the area of feeding.”
