Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Liberia last Sunday made a donation to the  MOD-1 Ebola Treatment Center  in Congo Town outside Monrovia.

RCCG Liberia’s national pastor Olatunde Olugbenga, making the presentation of bags of rice, sanitary and medical kits, etc. to the center, said the church’s general overseer Pastor EA Adeboye was deeply concerned about the Ebola situation in the country and therefore decided to lend a helping hand.

Pastor Olugbenga noted that Pastor Adeboye, who lives in Nigeria, like many others, was deeply worried about the situation which has led to the deaths of many Liberians, including doctors and nurses, adding that Ebola is a devilish virus that is meant to destroy the people of God. He called on Liberians to wake up and defeat the virus.

“This virus is devilish because God cannot use such a virus to kill his own people, as children of God we must rise up to overcome this disease” Pastor Olugbenga concluded.

Receiving the items on behalf of the center, Cavele Sumbo of the Liberian health ministry, thanked the church, especially Pastor Adeboye for thinking about Liberia during its time of crisis.

He said that the donation was a clear manifestation that Liberia was not alone in its fight against the virus.
