By Evabeta Tega
Lagos based church, Day star Christian Centre expressed love beyond words as she gave out educational materials worth millions to underprivileged students on Saturday 10th September, 2016 in a Back To School Initiative.Items given out included quality school bags, textbooks, sandals, notebooks, pencils, biros, among others….
Annually, the church leadership under the senior pastors, Sam & Nike Adeyemi, takes it as duty to kit children across Lagos Nigeria with school materials for their resumption.This has been a tradition in the last 20 years of the church. This year’s edition is unique in all dimensions. Usually, the free entry event has 5000 to 8000 every year but this edition had over 12000.
To the glory of God, they all went home happy with relevant school materials needed for this academic session….
According to the senior pastors, Sam & Nike Adeyemi, “the true essence of a church, as taught by Christ, is to be the light of the society. The light shows way in the darkness, provides directions and makes going easy. We are called by God to raise role models in the society and education remains a pivotal compass in shaping and modeling young lives”
In her own words, one of the beneficiaries, an SSS2 student from Oregun High school, said “the existence of this church in our community has paid our family so well. Though my parents are Muslims but they always wait till September when this event holds and are sure my school materials will be provided by Daystar. Since my JSS1, I don’t buy school bags, books and biros but Daystar Christian Centre provides that for me. I thank the church very much.”
