Mbaukwu (Awka South LGA), Dec. 25, 2020 (MOI) Director Information, Ministry of Information and Public Enlightenment, Awka, Mr Anthony Nweke has led his family to a Thanksgiving to God over healing he received from a recent ill health.
The thanksgiving was essentially for God’s love on the family, especially for granting him a speedy healing from surgery early this year.
At the thanksgiving service, which was held at St. Dominic Catholic Church, Mbaukwu, Awka South Local Government Area (LGA), the presiding Priest, Rev. Fr. Boniface Obiekezie said that through thanks giving humans speak to God and position themselves to receive more blessings.
“We must cultivate the habit of saying thank you in every situation especially, when God has blessed us with a miracle.
“Any body that does not show appreciation but keeps complaining at all times, even the blessings he has will be taken from him.
“The Bible has a lot of examples of people, who went to God in thanksgiving for what He did for them and received more blessings.’’
The Director’s father, Mr Dominic Nweke, while breaking a kola nut at the reception of the guests, thanked God for His love and care for the family.
“Every good thing happening in my family is from God so there is no better way to say it than to say thank you God.’’
He thanked the guests for honouring the invitation and joining the family for the thanksgiving.
Father of the wife of the Director and traditional ruler of Omogho, Orumba South LGA, Igwe Raphael Offor, prayed to God for continued blessings on the family.
The Director, Mr Nweke said that it was a thing of joy to celebrate what God had done for him by granting him prompt recovery.
“I thank God for granting me good health and for giving me a lovely family.’’
He said that he would be committing his life toward the worship and the service of God.
A friend of the family, Prince Nezianya Obinabo, a retired Deputy Director, Information said he joined the family to thank God for His saving grace and for granting Mr Nweke sound recovery from the surgery. (MOI)
