The General Overseer, Jesus Praise Evangelical Ministries International, Dr. Femi Lanre-Oke, said his ministry will begin “Operation Feed the Poor” to reach out to the poor in the Federal Capital Territory.
Lanre-Oke, who said this during the church service on Sunday in Abuja, added that there was a need to feed the poor as it connotes love and care.
He said that at least 100 children would be fed beginning from the first Sunday in September, adding that he believed the operation would go a long way to solve hunger in the nation.
He also said that there would be provision for buses to bring people to church, adding that it would not only be for orphans but everyone who was poor.
According to him, all the caterers in the church should organize themselves and liaise with the welfare unit and ensure this operation is carried out effectively.
“Everyone struggling with feeding, tell them to come to church. As they are fed with the word of God, they will be fed with food as well.
“We are looking at 500 Naira each to feed a child and at least 100 children will be fed every Sunday beginning from First Sunday in September.
“I know this will move a lot of people to church but I know the God I serve will provide and supply all that is necessary to carry out the operation.
“I also know this will be a great movement and I believe souls and lives will be touched with this little way of showing love to the poor, ” he said.
Lanre-Oke encouraged church members to key into the operation and ensure they were also partakers of the blessings attached to giving by contributing their quota.
