Compassion of Christ: Pastor Ashimolowo feeds 3,000 households, leads 2,000 to Christ at Ikorodu outreach
In Ikorodu, Lagos, during the Compassion for Christ outreach, Matthew Ashimolowo, Senior Pastor of Kingsway International Christian Center, demonstrated his compassion for the community by donating food and clothing to 3,000 households.
On the first night of the crusade, 2,000 people, according to Ashimolowo, dedicated their lives to Christ despite the rain. The Punch reports that this was spoken by the well-known man of God to reporters.
“Two thousand souls gave their lives to Christ in the middle of the rain. This morning I think we have served about 20 to 30,000 people with food and clothing.
“I don’t know what will be happening tomorrow as they now know that we are for real and that we will be distributing rice beans, sugar, salt, ground nut oil, soap and buckets”
It was gathered that doctors carried out surgeries for hernia, appendicitis, and lumps at the medical facility in the Ikorodu Hospital.
In an earlier report, Ashimolowo said he drew the inspiration from Canadian-based twin preachers Steve and Sam Mensah, who had engaged in several rural outreach programs in Ghana, Premium Times reported.
Ashimolowo announces special crusade to help poor Nigerians
According to reports, between November 6 and November 11, 2023, Pastor Ashimolowo would launch a new crusade whose main goal is to aid impoverished Nigerians, particularly those living in rural regions.
