The Ebenezer Obey Evangelistic Ministries, an arm of the Decross Gospel Ministries, Evangelist Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi, led religious and healthcare organisations, the Relume Foundation and the Household of God Church to preach salvation and give free healthcare services to Idogo town, Ogun State and its environs.
The two-day event turned Idogo and neigbouring communities into a melting pot, as both the old and young thronged to benefit from the free healthcare scheme at the popular Idogo Community Town Hall.
According to the music legend, the programme was part of the activities lined up to celebrate the seventh year remembrance of his late wife, Pastor (Mrs.) Juliana Olaide Obey-Fabiyi, Obey sheds more light on the project: “Healthcare and spiritual care are both what man needs here on earth.
People would go astray if the spiritual aspect of life is not taken care of and anytime man is doing what he is not supposed to do, he cannot be a happy person.
So, the spiritual aspect is very important and we thank God that we are able to balance that through the initiative. The turnout has made it clear that the care that people need matters lot.
I thank God and also appreciate the Relume Foundation from the United States, anchored by both Dr. and Professor Adeosun, in conjunction with the Ebenezer Obey Evangelistic Ministry and the Household of God Church of the Reverend Christe Okotie, in making this a reality.”
The president of the foundation, Professor Sherri Adeosun told New Telegraph that the vision of the foundation in collaboration with the Household of God and the Ebenezer Obey Evangelistic Ministries was to impact the lives of the needy and provide free healthcare services for the rural people.
The head of mission of the Household of God International Church, Mr. Lolu Ogunmade, also said the project underlined the cardinal objectives of the church as an institution.
