Efik/Ibibio women performing at the event
It was an amazing and delightful evening of praise, as the Good Women Fellowship of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos Province 44, Praise Tabernacle, Surulere, Lagos, celebrated its maiden edition of Praise Fiesta with the theme ‘Love & Praise: the Naija Way).’ The event, which began with praise and worship, ushered the congregation into an atmosphere of thanksgiving and worship.
Convener of the praise concert, Pastor (Mrs.) Temitope Emovon, wife of the pastor-in-charge of the Province, Amos Emovon, said at the opening, “I want to give all the glory, worship and praise to God because He deserves it. The essence of this gathering is to kick out the devil from our homes. Today, we are saying we need peace in our homes and the only way to do so is by expressing love to our husbands, children and everyone around. This is why we are here.”
Different ethnic groups in the country were represented at the event, as the women were colourful attired in their ethnic traditional wears. They included Hausa, Delta, Edo, Igbo, Yoruba, Ibibio/ Efik among others. The event also featured awesome and breathtaking performances from the children who did many scintillating choreographic steps.
Families were celebrated, especially the husbands by their wives and children. Love letters, written by wives to their husbands, were displayed on the projectors and read aloud to the hearing of everyone.
Also, awestruck the husbands were presented with beautifully packaged boxes of cakes and hard copies of their love letters by their wives, as confirmations of their undying affection and appreciation. It was, indeed, a memorable event.
Pastor Amos Emovon thanked the congregation for attending the first edition of Praise Fiesta, particularly the women for making the event possible.
