The essence of a church is to draw people to God and improve lives. While most churches are focused only on the spiritual aspect of life, a church in Warri has proven otherwise. Prophet Fufeyin, of the Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, Warri showed that it is necessary to lead people to God and empower them with physical needs.
The Prophet proved this after an altar call in which he asked people engaged in sex work (prostitution) to accept Jesus Christ and turn from their ways. Fifteen sex workers responded to the altar call and decided to leave prostitution and live a changed life. In addition to the altar call, Prophet Fufeyin empowered the repentant sex workers with N15m and a bible for each of them.
According to the Prophet, the money was meant for the repentant sex workers to start a business and leave risky life of prostitution. The Prophet, after giving out the cash, commented that it is poverty and poor economic situation in the country that young people engage in prostitution for a living. In the words of the Prophet, “It is not enough for us to lead them to Christ. Some of these people have no one to help them. Today, we are offering you this token through the Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin Foundation to support your chosen small-scale business,” Fufeyin said. This act is inspiring and other churches can do the same to improve lives.
