Ma Nwogbo departs



CHRISTIANS have been urged to live an exemplary life. A life rich in Christ the saviour as every Christian life should be a guiding light that draws others to Christ.

 Vicar of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, Nawgu, Dunukofia, Local Government Area, Venerable Godfrey Nkanyimo stated this in his homily at the burial of the late Mrs. Regina Nwogbo at her husband’s country home in Nawgu. 

 Ven. Nkanyimo  charged them to be prepared as death is inevitable, stressing that it is important to understand the time we are in. “Many don’t go to church, neither do they bother to attend to Godly matters. It’s only the believers that inherit the kingdom of God and you can only get that on the platform of salvation. There is no salvation after death. The only time you can do that is while you are alive.”

 Ma Nwogbo’s first daughter, Mrs. Nnonye Nwoye, described her mother as a lover of people, always had the interest of others at heart, “I knew her as a peaceful woman. She was there for us in thick and thin. She was such a wonderful woman. In her, I saw the virtues of motherhood, what a mother, she was irreplaceable. We will miss her. May God grant her soul repose?

 Patrick Nwoye, a son in-law, spoke of Ma Nwogbo as a kindhearted woman not only to him but also people around her, “she demonstrated the same measure of love to people that came her way. She was such a good woman. I referred to her as a mother rather than son-in-law. I want to encourage her children to take comfort in the lord because their mother lived a good life.”

 Another of her son in law, Festus Obiekwele said he knew Ma Nwogbo as a good Christian and that it reflected in her relationship with others. She was a good woman, someone with an understanding heart. I can’t forget the respect she accorded people, status notwithstanding she treats everyone with dignity.    She deserved to be honoured for the exemplary life that she lived. She detested evil and people knew her for that. I’m convinced that she is in the safe hand of God,” he said.

 Late Ma Nwogbo was a devout Christian; a member of Women’s Guild and ordained Mother of the Anglican Church.
