The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Tuesday led members of the church to offer prayers for the release of the over 200 Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram in April.
Adeboye also offered prayers for a quick divine intervention in the Ebola Virus Disease ravaging the West Africa sub-region as the 2014 RCCG Annual Convention got under way in Mowe, Ogun State.
Nigeria announced its first Ebola death on Wedesday, naming the matron that treated the late Patrick Sawyerr on July 20 as the victim.
Adeboye charged the congregation to pray for the schoolgirls, who were kidnapped in the premises of the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State. Only about 51 of the 276 schoolgirls kidnapped have escaped from their abductors.
Also, 28 children were delivered two days into the convention.
“Sixteen of the babies born are boys, while 12 are girls,” Adeboye said.
The theme of the convention, the 62nd in the series, is the ‘Holy Spirit.’ The weeklong event, which started on Monday, will end with the Farewell Service and ordination of pastors on Sunday.
