The joy of the resident of Wukara Community on Airport Road, Abuja knew no bounds when the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr Paul Enenche, celebrated his 54th birthday on Saturday.
The pastor commissioned a borehole project in the community, which was battling water scarcity.
The project was entirely funded by the church to help the residents.
Inaugurating the borehole, Pastor Enenche stressed the importance of giving, saying it was the responsibility of the church to make a difference and show light to the world by offering humanitarian services where needed.
On what motivated the project, he said, “Our motivation is the love of God. The Bible says that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. And we believe that genuine Christianity is the practicality of God’s love.
“People can’t see God, but they can see what we do. They can see what the church is doing. And that’s why we came here to show this community made up of a mixture of religions, a lot of different tribes, to show them the love of God, especially on a day like this, the fourth of June, my birthday that I decided to appreciate God in his goodness and mercy towards me by showing his kindness towards others.
“As long as human beings exist, human needs remain. And if human needs remain, the need to continually relieve them will continue as long as human beings exist. So we do it to the extent that God gives us the power. We may not be able to do it all, but to the extent that we have the power and the resources to go ahead and do it.
He pointed to other projects carried out by the ministry including construction of roads in different communities, boreholes, scholarships and donations to the underprivileged.
Overwhelmed with joy, the district head of the community, Ibrahim Dalhatu, commended Enenche and the church for always reaching out to society through their humanitarian projects.
He praised the quality of the drilling and prayed to God to continue to uplift the church.
