Joy streamed abundantly at the Royal Priesthood Divine Assembly Church, Asaba, last Saturday when Hon Chux Nwaebuni and his family expressed their gratitude to God for his daughter’s graduation from medical school.
Dr Ebube Nwaebuni was among the students who graduated from the medical college of Delta State University, Abraka (DELSU), hereafter securing her horsemanship at the Asaba Specialist Hospital (ASH).
Conspicuously present at the occasion, among other well-wishers, were staff members of the Delta Printing and Publishing Corporation (DPPC), where the celebrant’s mother, Deaconess Rosemary Nwaebuni, is the Acting Editor (Weekend).
On the sidelines, Dr Nwaebuni thanked God for His compassion in seeing her through trying times, especially during her final year. She also thanked her parents for their prayers and support.
Earlier, the Head Pastor of the Royal Priesthood Divine Assembly, Sam Onitiri, talked on the theme “Spirit of Joy” to conclude the 17th Anniversary celebration of the Commission.
The cleric charged Christians to avail themselves of the presence of God to experience the fullness of joy. While assuring believers of God’s protection and provision, Pastor Onitiri warned that crisis was inevitable for those who would not submit to the will of God.
“Once joy leaves you, stagnation sets in. God has created us to live by joy. You need to be in His presence, and there is joy in his company. I pray for you today; every form of sadness will be cast out in the name of Jesus.
“The spirit of man is the candle of God. If there is no fire in the candle, it becomes useless. But once there is fire on it, it can show us the way in the darkness, and we live in a wicked and dark world where we need light to survive or become victims,” Onitiri said.
The ceremony reached its high point when Hon Chux Nwaebuni led his family, accompanied by friends and well-wishers, to the altar. Accordingly, the cleric prayed for the celebrant, Dr Ebube Nwaebuni, to excel in her endeavours beyond measure.
