50 motor bikes for pastors, mission facilitators

Fifty evangelists, pastors and Mission facilitators in the four dioceses in the Owerri ecclesiastical province of the Anglican Communion would benefit from the first phase of 50 Kasea motorcycles donated for mission work by Motorized for Mission Project, (MFOMP), in conjunction with “Bishop Emmanuel Ikeduru Care and Charity Mission (BEICCM).
This was disclosed by the Rector of Saint Paul’s Anglican Parish Brockton, Massachusetts in the United States of America (USA), the Rev’d  Dr. James Hiles while preaching at the just concluded synod of the Anglican diocese of Ikeduru.
Bishop Hiles, the initiator and founder of the MFOMP said that his mission outfit had agreed to partner with BEICCM on the areas of evangelism and mission development to see that the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is spread throughout the country and its hinterland.
A coordinator with Bishop Emmanuel Ikeduru care and Charity Mission, Rev. Dr Emmanuel Egbule said that the outfit had been in existence for over seven years doing the work of charity which included, taking care of indigent members  of the  society and aiding mission workers for effective evangelism and church planting.
He expressed his appreciation to Bishop Hiles and his MFOMP for seeing the need to work in synergy with BEICCM in order to reach out to the unreached, while at the same time propagating the gospel of salvation.
Bishop Hiles who spoke extensively on the theme of the synod said that the world, and Nigeria in particular were today on the voyage of troubled water, and that it is only Jesus Christ, Immanuel and God-incarnate could calm the storm and save His people.
Taking his text from Mark’s gospel chapter 4:3-41, Bishop Hiles said that as the disciples of Christ cried out for help in the midst of turbulent sea and raging tempest, children of God were supposed to do same in the midst of the present confusion and crises of life.
According to him, the disciples where worried, fearful and emotional, thinking that the end had come, but the Lord Jesus rebuked the storm and saved them from impending holocaust.
He enjoined the people of God to cultivate the faith that is based on result and the protection of God and stop fearing the uncertainty as Christ is always available to proffer solutions to our problems.
Dr. Hiles advised the people of God to cue to the theme of the synod, which is “Immanuel and perilous time—(1Pet. 5:8) by resisting the devil, even when purpose seemed to have been delayed like the disciples who taught that all hope was lost.
Thanking the guest preacher, the bishop of Ikeduru Diocese, the Rt. Rev’d Emmanuel Chigozie Maduwike, JP, described Dr Hiles as a mission partner and prayed God to enlarge his coast and Ministry.
