*plans to tar road
Cana’an Baptist Church located in Malali Kaduna has constructed a borehole worth over one million Naira and presented to people of the area to address water needs and also augment government’s efforts.
The community has suffered untold hardship in terms of potable drinking water over the years, a situation that made the church to move in to assist.
According to Pastor of the Church, Reverend Nathan Chawai, apart from the spiritual needs of the people in the church, they also require some physical necessities to strengthen their faith.
“One day, I was outside my house then I saw women carrying jerry cans in search of drinking water. After several hours, they came back without getting it. At that moment I was moved to start this project which I am now presenting to them”.
Reverend Nathan narrated that the church is part of the society and therefore needs to also give out what it has to the society.
He said the gesture is a challenge to well meaning Nigerians to take it upon themselves by providing for the immediate needs of the society within their powers irrespective of government support.
The Reverend further stated that there are plans for them to tar the Road leading to the area in Malali.
“I am looking forward to calling another meeting this time around to begin a process of Tarring this main Road which is leading towards Birnin Yero”.
Presenting the Borehole to the community, the President Baptist Theological Seminary Kawo Kaduna, Professor Reuben Ishaya Chuga said by the gesture, they displayed a practical example of the life of Jesus Christ.
“Jesus Christ while on this earth also met the physical needs of the people by healing them and feeding them.
He was not only preaching the gospel of salvation or religion.
As a matter of fact government doesn’t have the resources to solve all our problems therefore, we can all assist the government.
Some community leaders who were at the event, Alhaji Isma’il Ibiyeye and Mr. Sunday Maisamari applauded the efforts of the church.
They all called for peaceful coexistence among people of diverse religions and ethnic groups.
