SDA leader prays for end of terror

18 March 2014, 20:41

Jos - The World President of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church, Pastor Ted Wilson, has expressed hope the insurgency in the North would end.

“The insurgency in the north, especially Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and Benue states will soon come to an end because God is not happy with the bloodbath being recorded in the north. We in Seventh-Day Adventist Church are not happy that the insurgency in the north is persisting and it is our utmost prayer that God would intervene and bring it to an end. Our God is a God that answers prayers and we believe that in no distant time God will bring an end to it,” he said after visiting the SDA-run hospital Jengre in Bassa local government area of the state, where he addressed church members and commissioned a Centenary Anniversary Monument.

This was part of activities marking the centenary of the church in the country.

Wilson also visited to Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang in Jos.

The clergy took time to pray for Jang and members of his cabinet and wished them God’s guidance and protection as they piloted the affairs of the state.

He said peace would eventually prevail in Plateau.

The renowned clergy said his church is praying fervently for the end of terrorism in Northern Nigeria.

He meanwhile added that his church had expanded significantly in Nigeria and was impacting on lives as well as raising moral standard in the society.
