Harvesters Of Souls Ministry Fetes 20 Ogun Villages During Yuletide

ABEOKUTA – About 20 villages in Ogun state benefited from the Harvesters of Souls Ministry during the Good Shepherd Christmas Outreach.

The Good Shepherd Outreach which began 11years ago, was part of the charity gesture of the church to celebrate the Christmas with the rural dwellers.

According to the Convener and President of Harvesters Ministry, Pastor Adeniran Oladele the essence of the outreach was to give back to the society and celebrate the yuletide with the vulnerable and less privileged in the society.

Oladele said the outreach has covered about 20 villages in each year including Odeda, Abeokuta North, Ewekoro, Imeko-Afon, Yewa South and recently Remo North.

He added that, the outreach would be followed up with 12 weeks Discipleship class on the villagers in January next year.

He said, “The Good Shepherd Christmas Outreach started 11 years ago in 2013. It’s a vision born out of reaching out to the lost which is the essence of Christmas and to celebrate the joy of the season with those who may not have anything to celebrate the birth of Christ.

People came from everywhere in Nigeria and move to the village on the 24th while we return in the evening of the 25th.

“This year, it was held in a village in Orile Oko, Remo North Local Government Area of Ogun State.

“Many times, dwellers in the cities have the best feel of Christmas with several outreaches, lights, Santa clause and many freebies. The common people in the village do not have this opportunity and the question is who are those who will leave the comfort of the city to be on the go to celebrate with the villagers.

“We have covered nothing less than 20 villages in each year of this outreach across Odeda LG, Abeokuta North, Ewekoro, Imeko Afon, Yewa South and recently Remo North.

“It’s special because of the sacrifice everyone on the go make. We are mostly professionals with members denying themselves of the most desired vacation and family togetherness during the season.

“It’s always a joy to see the villagers receiving the word of life, enjoy the Christmas Jollof rice, the free medical outreach, distribution of food and relief items and the Santa clause for the children. It’s an experience that everyone must have in a lifetime and see how joyful Christmas can be.

“The Christmas Outreach is not just a once and for all thing as we will have a 12 weeks Discipleship Class to follow up on the villagers, that starts in January.

“We organize Youth for Christ International focussing on raising youths as Kingdom Ambassadors. We organize annual Easter Concert tagged WWW.COM (WHY WE WORSHIP CHRIST OUR MESSAIAH)

“We also have the real men conference tagged standing tall. This is aimed at raising godly Fathers raising godly children. We also organize God’s Battle Axe bringing campus Fellowship executives together regardless of denominations.”

He called on Nigerians to be optimistic of better days, saying the nation would witness good turnaround in 2024.

“Nigerians should believe in the message of hope. God is not done with Nigerians yet. What is not working now will begin to work. The same way God redeemed humanity, our nation is going to progress, things will begin to turn around for the good of our nation.”
