Oshodi/Isolo Disciples Sunday Worship Service at the Blind Center in Lagos
“…I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These things I will do; I will not forsake them. Isaiah 42:16
It was a Sunday to remember on the 9th November 2017 at the Nigerian Society for the Blind Center in Oshodi, Lagos as disciples of the Oshodi/Isolo region and friends gathered at its’ premises for a special Sunday Worship Service with students of the Center.
An initiative of the ICOC Lagos Benevolence Ministry, this special worship service had in attendance, among others, Imagbe Igbinoba, an elder who oversees the benevolence ministry of the church.
The service opened with a welcome speech by Anthony Osakwe, a deacon serving in the benevolence ministry in the region, who set the tone for an incredibly inspiring service while a former student of the school and now a disciple of Christ, Tunde Onipede gave the collection for the Poor talk.
Michael Fadeyi, a disciple from Ikorodu region and who is blind too, was led powerfully by the Spirit of God as he preached the sermon of the day.
The Oshodi-Isolo region also gave out gift items to the Blind Center such as Guide Canes, Writing materials, food and clothing items and cash.
We had more than 40 visitors that day while many students at the facility stayed back to study and to fellowship after the service and we thank God for the fire he lit in their hearts. Through this fire, may He establish more churches for the blind and bring the light of the gospel into more lives within the blind community.
May our Lord richly bless the heart of disciples for these sacrifices.
