“Today is your birthday but Reigners Bible Church couldn’t allow it. RIP my dear sister.”

The late Josephine, according to her close friends, was a very jovial lady who did not joke with the things of God and was always seen in the church or going for evangelism around the town.


Many families are still taking stock and counting their losses following the tragic incident which happened when the General Overseer of the church, Apostle Akan Weeks was to be ordained a Bishop.
