THE founder, Women Ablaze for Christ Fellowship, Awka, Nkechinyere Nwokoye has said that God knows about the widows and cares, as well as loves them so much.

  Prof Nwokoye, stated this at the end of the year get-together as part of the activities to mark the Widows Day 2021 at  Choice HotelLtd, Awka.

 “ I am happy because of what God has done today to visit his wives, popularly known as widows. The celebration was a success. It gladdens my heart that God had His way just as he promised me.

  “On seeing it now, I am so happy. And  we are enjoined to help people like this and avoid maltreatment, but  rather, show them love, render help as much as we can, making them happy always,” she maintained.

  The event, which saw about 180 widows and non-widows as well, the youth wing, clergy and musicians was so colorful both spiritually and otherwise.

  Speaking at the event with the theme ‘He Knows About You’ dealing with the embarrassment and challenges of widowhood in the society, Evangelist Blessing Chikodi urged widows to be prayerful, emphasising the importance of prayer and what prayer can do in their individual lives.  She  maintained that faith is important in prayer and by being consistent in prayer, the answer must surely come.

  One of the widows, Mrs Blessing Okoye  thanked the organisers of the programme, praying that God will remember them as they remembered the widows.

  High point of the event included; sharing of 25kg bags of rice and pieces of cloth among other things  to all the widows, as well as non-widows.
