The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, FESTAC Mega Axis Headquarters, Lagos State, has given cash gifts, food items and grants to widows as well as vulnerable families.

A statement on Wednesday said this was in a bid to put smiles on the faces of widows, the needy, indigent students and the less privileged amidst the hard economic situation in the country.

The statement said the church gave scholarships to 11 indigent secondary school students, adding that the church gave food items to about 1,000 members and non-members.

“In addition, the church organised a four-day ICT and media workshop for all ICT personnel, youths, teenagers and other interested members of the church across Festac Mega Axis.

“The training featured among other things, how to stream church programmes, snap and edit pictures for social media pages, live coverage of church services using phones and video cameras, how to bring audio into live stream for online members how to use Vmix to mix video images and also to display Bible verses, project information and announcements, how to set up a Web Page as well as digital Evangelism,” the statement said.

The Mega Regional Overseer, MFM FESTAC Mega Axis, said Pastor Irabor Enojiasun’s gesture was in line with the vision of the General Overseer, MFM Worldwide, Dr. Daniel Olukoya, which was to touch lives beyond denomination and religious biases as well as to capture souls for Christ.

The MRO explained that over 30 widows received cash gifts of N15,000 each, while over 358 received 3kg of rice, Indomie and other food items. 765  persons were served packed cooked foods, water and drinks.

There were protests in some states on the high cost of living and soaring food prices which demonstrators noted were becoming unbearable.

The state governments and the Federal Government have been rolling out palliatives to cushion the effect of the hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy by the President Bola Tinubu-led administration. The fallen value of the naira against the dollar also compounded the woes for many Nigerians as prices of goods and services kept rising.
