Apart from Sports, Historical Landmarks and an eminent history, the city of Manchester experienced a one of a kind event as Christ Embassy, Manchester, led by Rev Ray Okocha, held the second instalment of the program ‘In His Presence‘ at the Manchester University Union auditorium.
The esteemed Regional Pastor, Reverend Ray, ministered on the importance of the presence of God, citing examples from the Bible of people who ran away from God’s presence to their disadvantage. He went on to elaborate on the benefits of refreshment, restoration and prosperity enjoyed by dwelling in the Lord’s presence. The auditorium was filled with the power of God’s presence, which stirred up faith in the hearts of everyone.
Some exciting segments of the service were an electrifying dance presentation from the Creative Academy, spoken word ministrations, an inspiring talk show on the impact of BLW ministry materials, healing testimonies from those that got healed from previous programs and stirring praise and worship by the Christ Embassy Manchester Group Choir.
The Kingdom of God experienced a fresh influx of souls when Reverend Ray made the altar call. More than 40 people responded with joy, giving their hearts to Christ. The Regional Pastor also prayed for the sick and cast out demons. Notable was the testimony of a young lady who came from the hospital where she had been admitted for 3 months. During the program, she got healed from a mental illness, stroke, sickle cell anaemia and arthritis, to the glory of God.
Reminiscent of the days when Rev Chris Oyakhilome held major crusades with out-pours of miracles and testimonies, his followers have taken the footsteps of their leader in holding similar events with even more astounding results.
It is said that an apple does not fall far from its tree and this has been the case of the President and Founder of Believers’ Loveworld Inc, Rev (Dr) Chris Oyakhilome and his children who are products of his good works.
