In a sermon titled, “The Best Thanksgiving Song”, the invited preacher, Pastor Dotun Ayorinde said, the best Thanksgiving song is the restoration of hope to the hopeless in society through the act of giving and making life more bearable to others.

Pastor Ayorinde noted that some privileged ones in the country were acquiring more than what they needed in life, whereas, many are dying of hunger, while teeming youths are roaming the streets without jobs.

In a remark, Evangelist Bola Are commended the visioner, Pastor Isaiah O. Alade for his steadfastness in the works of God without coveting earthly materials but winning souls for Christ.

Also speaking, the Founder of the CAC, Ori Oke Aanu, Ojoo Ibadan, Prophet Moses Aladeolu called on religious leaders to start preaching the words of God backed with prayers rather than seeking wealth at the expense of God’s Kingdom.

The beneficiary of the 3-bedroom apartment, Pastor Johnson Olunlade was in the church with his children to thank God and appreciate CAC Ori Oke Aanu, through Pastor Alade for making him a landlord against all odds.
