Renowned international evangelist-cum-philanthropist, Reverend Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, has said that the only way to restore peace to the world, especially Nigeria was through the prayers of the faithful and unconditional love irrespective of race or creed.
Ajayi made this known on Saturday at Julis, Northern District of Israel, at a presentation of scholarships to 30 students of higher institutions of the community, adding that this was the main motive she brought her popular non-denominational crusade to Nigeria.
She noted that preparation has been concluded to host about 180,000 Christians across the world at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Lagos on July 20, at the 2019 edition of programme tagged: “The Comforter” as all and sundry will converge to intercede for the peace of the world.
According to her, the crusade will attract Christians from all the five continents of the world to celebrate Jesus Christ who is the “Comforter” and declared that the proceeds from the crusade will be given to charity homes in Nigeria.
The cleric alongside her husband, Reverend (Dr) Ademuyiwa Ajayi, presented cheques to the beneficiaries of the scholarship, just as she noted that she got to know about the vulnerable in Julis through the Executive Director of Munir Foundation, Mr Nadeem Ammar, who she said they met in London and told her how General Munir Ammar died in a Plane Crash in 2006.
“I was moved to tears when I heard about the story of many families in this community and some youths who wanted to go to school, but could not because their breadwinner is either dead or has health challenges.
“I was impressed with the story of the late General who died three years ago had been catering for people here. We are glad to support this foundation because any support to advance the course of education among youth is a deliberate effort to secure their future and make the world a better place,” she said.
Appreciating Mother Ajayi for her kind gesture to the people of Israel, Col. Moneeb Bader said the community will remain eternally grateful to her for giving hopes to the hopeless youths who would have been out of schools.
