Couple thanks God for blessings

The family of Sir and Lady G.C. Maduwuba of Obodo, Amaimo, in the Ikeduru Council Area of Imo State, recently rolled out the drums in appreciation of God’s marvelous blessings and loving kindness upon them.
St. John’s Anglican Church Amaimo, the venue of the event was a beehive of activities as children, grand children, relations, friends and well wishers gathered to rejoice with the Maduwubas in a special thanksgiving.
The couple whose joy knew no bound used the occasion also to dedicate an ultra-modern one-storey building built by one of their sons.
Preaching during the thanksgiving service, an Anglican Cleric and rector of Bishop Cockin Church Centre (BCCC), Atta, also in Ikeduru Council Area, Ven Nwora Nwigwe, said that it is always good to give thanks unto the Lord.
In his words of exhortation, taken from the book of  Proverbs 10:7, Ven. Nwigwe said that the Maduwubas have cause to appreciate God for  His blessings upon them, as the memory of the just is blessing.
He thanked God for the life of the couple, Sir G.C. and Lady B.C. Maduwuba whom he said God blessed with wise children who understand where they come from and are building on the foundation laid by their grandfather, Moses Maduwuba.
Ven Nnora enjoined the children to always follow the footsteps of their father whom he said was not found wanting in the church activities, and always ready to make sacrifices in support of the work of God.
He also appealed to the children of the Octogenarian parents to always honour, obey and take good care of their parents in their old age, adding that their children would care for them when they become old.
The service featured praise worship, prayers, special anther by the choir and testimonies as the couple recounted God’s marvelous goodness upon them.
At the country home of the Maduwubas, the Archdeacon of the Amaimo Archdeaconry, Ven. Clelland Nzeh led over 15 priests and other church workers to dedicate the new house built by one of the sons of the celebrants.
The occasion was another round of banters as many sang, danced and clapped in appreciation of God’s wondrous deeds.
