Ikeduru Knights, Ladies move to support Akabo High School

Akabo High School, one of the missionary schools in the Anglican Diocese of Ikeduru, was a beehive of activities recently when Knights and Ladies of the Diocese, visited the school as part of their evangelistic out- reaches.
The programme, Christian Voice learnt is designed to bring succour to smaller church stations and institutions in the Diocese.
Addressing the staff and students of the institution, as well their parents and guardians, the acting president of the council, Sir George Iwuchukwu, thanked all who found time to be part of the outreach programme the first since the institution was returned by the Imo State government to the Diocese.
He reminded the knights and ladies of their call, and their responsibilities which, according to him, include giving generously in support of God’s work by championing the cause of evangelism and other developmental projects to the glory of God.
The Council boss enjoined all to give and donate generously in aid of the institution which he said greatly needed their support.
Earlier in a sermon, entitled “The sacrificial giving (Mark 12:41-44), the council’s assistant chaplain, Rev. Ogechi Nwogu called on the people of God to always serve God with sincere hearts and with all their resources, describing such as a living sacrifice that pleases Him.
Rev. Nwogu who went further to describe such a sacrifice as, “giving that attracts divine attention” said that many give out of their abundance, while some sincerely give out of their poverty to the glory of God.
He said that the widow in the text was very poor and feeble yet she gave more than she was supposed to have given, and that attracted divine attention and approval from the master who searches the hearts and reins of man”.
The council’s chaplain regretted that today many, both the rich and poor, including God’s children Slack when it comes to giving, especially in support of God’s work; lamenting that such behavior could attract negative consequences instead of divine blessings.
He enjoined all to appreciate God’s marvelous grace by making worthy contributions, adding that God first gave his only begotten son as a sacrifice to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Also speaking, the principal of the school Rev. F.O.S Akanne thanked the knights and ladies for the visit and prayed God to always meet them at their point of needs.
Rev. Akanne who described Akabo High School as a citadel of academic excellence said that the institution was strategically located with a large expance of land for development and academic activities.
