Anyanwutaku, who could not pursue his education due to lack of funds, also told the congregation how he started business with 30 kobo as a boy and was able to increase it to N1460, which he used to seek for greener pastures in Lagos in 1976. He revealed how every adversity that came his way eventually turned out to be something to glorify God, adding that building the church for God was not even enough to thank God for what had happened in his life.

In 1969, during the civil war, I fell into the river called Oyi Nsugbe. That was supposed to be the end of my life since I did not know how to swim”, he stated. “I sank down to the bed of the river, but God, in His infinite mercy, saved me up to this moment. I didn’t know how He rescued me. “Also in 1971, when I could not find anybody to sponsor my education, I started petty trading in my village, Ogidi. All I had was 30 kobo, two shorts and 2 shirts. From that humble beginning, the Almighty God began to prosper my business in a miraculous way.

“In 1974, I fell ill. I was seriously ill for two years. My parents took me to different hospitals for solution without success. At a time, I never knew I would survive the illness. One day, God miraculous healed me. This is one of the many wonderful works of God in my life. “Immediately after the illness, I had the desire to leave the village for Lagos. The Almighty God had then grown my business from 30k to N1460. This was all I had when I went to Lagos. “The Bible says that God works in a mysterious way. I am a living testimony to this verse of the scripture. He built my business from 30 kobo to what I am today.” According to him, the building and dedication of the church was a testimonial of God’s faithfulness to him and members of his family and prayed that whoever that sought God’s face in the church would get the desired reward.

Apart from the Bishop on the Niger, Rt. Rev Owen Nwokolo, who dedicated the new church, Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano and a former national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, were among the dignitaries that graced the occasion.
