PENTECOSTAL FELLOWSHIP MOURNS BESSY AMAUBOCHI, SAYS COVID-19 IS SIGN OF END-TIME
By Uzo Ugwunze :
Oba (Idemili South LGA), March 25, 2020 (MOI) Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Anambra State Chapter came out en masse to bid farewell to their patroness, Bessy Amaubochi, who was laid to rest at Oba, Idemili South LGA.
The deceased and her husband, General Superintendent of One Foundation Gospel Mission (OFGM) Inc, Rev. Christopher Amaubochi were among pioneers of Pentecostal Churches in Anambra State in late 70’s.
In his sermon titled ‘The Gift of God’, PFN Anambra State Chairman, Bishop Moses Ezedebego urged people to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ, the savior of humanity.
``Sicknesses, hardship, crises and death came because Adam ate the forbidden fruit but the gift of God is eternal life through His son Jesus Christ.
``Humanity is in crises. The world is shutting down because of Corana Virus. After COVID-19 comes famine and poverty. More crises are coming as fulfillment of word of God about end-time.’’
Rev. John Eze of Christian Pentecostal Mission, said Bessy was a patient and soft spoken listener, who opened her heart, home and resources to many and directed them to the right way of life.
Assistant General Superintendent of OFGM, Rev. Okoye said that the death was a big loss to OFGM family because she was Christian warrior, who made a gospel mark in South East, Nigeria.
However, Rev Amaubochi described his wife as a pillar to his ministerial work, whose finances and philanthropy helped through his sufferings at Nzam and Innoma missions.
``She was a help mate indeed. She started from selling pap to selling motorcycle.
``She used all the proceeds to support my family and ministry. She never prevented me from helping anybody,’’ he said. (MOI)
