It’s very easy to ignore what the persecuted Christians have gone and are going through; they need our prayers and support in whatever way possible.

He spoke during the donation of food and domestic items to the Stephen Children Home Abeokuta, Ogun State at the weekend.

Over 50 widows and 400 children orphaned by Boko Haram fighters in Kaduna, Plateau, Gombe, Kano and other parts of the north are taking refuge in the home.

Donating the items under the David Oyedepo Foundation, the faith preacher said the nation’s Christian community was very impressed by the relentless commitment of the widows and children to the gospel of Jesus in the face of intense persecution.

He assured them that the church remains committed to reminding persecuted saints that they are never alone in their time of grief.

Oyedepo, who was represented by a team from the foundation led by Gift Okwuazu, expressed optimism that the insurgency in the north will end soonest.

According to him: “I am so happy for your resolve, commitment and we will continue to stand by you so that you will remain committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ even in the face of persecution, untold hardship and destruction of properties experience in northern Nigeria.”

The Director of Stephen Children Home, Rev Isaac Newton-Wusu, thanked Oyedepo for his continuous support.

He said: “We thank the church for believing in us as we work hard in taking care of the children of the persecuted saints and we will continue to expand and build fellowship.”

Newton-Wusu challenged the nation’s leaders to be sincere, upright and firm in their determination to put a stop to the insurgency in the north

He stated: “The decision is before our leaders to choose to confront evil and knock it out and nip it in the bud  or leave it to let it expand and when it expand it degenerates into a phenomenon that they never dream of because many of them will be sacked and probably they might seek exile somewhere else.”
