The 2015 Women August Meeting of St. Mark’s (Ang) Church Orogwe in Owerri West local government of Imo State should go down as one of the most successful in recent times with the dedication of an 18-seater bus for the Women’s Ministries as well as a free medical outreach.
Apart from the free medical treatment, the programme organized by two sons of the church, Sir Cliff Nzimako and Dr. Jojo Onwukwe, also involved distribution of food items, footwears, clothes and cash to people from different denominations.
And what made this year’s event more remarkable was the fact that the women did not have the guidance of resident priests and their wives for over a year and the women thanked God for giving them a sense of direction.
The dedication ceremony of the vehicle was performed by Rev. Canon Chike Samuelson whose sermon on the Sunday thanksgiving service to round off the annual meeting was described as “very powerful.” The bus project was launched last year by the former executive led by Lady Bernice
The women expressed gratitude to the Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Cyril Okorocha, PhD for his prompt intervention during the crisis in the church and for appointing two supervising priests, Ven. Donald Oguike and Rev. Canon Chike Samuelson.
They passionately appealed to the bishop to send them “young, vibrant and spirit-filled priests for revival and greater work in God’s vineyard.”
The women equally expresses thanks to their husband and sons for their constant and unalloyed support.
They include; Sir Cliff Nzimako, Dr. Jojo Onwukwe, Barr. C.J. Ihemedu, Sir Chris Iheanacho and Sir Alex Onyekwe.
Others are Barr. Emma Dike, Sir Barr. Chukwuma Ekomaru (SAN), Sir & Lady Ben Chikwere, Mr & Mrs Aaron Nnadi and a host of others.
