VP Boakai Urges Church Leaders To Pray For Ebola Defeat

By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA October 4 (LINA) -Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has told church leaders to keep praying for the nation so that the Ebola scourge will be totally eradicated from the land.

VP Boakai also reiterated that if Liberia must win the fight against the invading Ebola virus, church leaders must play their rightful and sacred role by interceding for the nation.

The Vice President made the statement Thursday evening at the end of a one-day National Atonement Day service organized by the Church of Liberia held at the Dominion Fellowship Church on Tubman Boulevard.

He reaffirmed government’s commitment to working with the church and other religious groups in Liberia in helping to move the country forward against the virus that is wrecking havoc in the country, reports the Liberia News Agency.

VP Boakai also challenged the church to carry out anti-Ebola awareness among their congregations saying, “This could be one of the easiest ways to sensitize Liberians on the deadly Ebola disease.”

The Liberian vice President then praised the church for organizing the one-day Atonement Day service and called on other religious groups in the country to follow suit.

Earlier, Bishop Isaac S. Winker, Resident Bishop of the Dominion Fellowship, urged Liberians to continue to trust in God in spite of the outbreak of the Ebola virus in the nation.

Bishop Winker said Liberians have refused to focus on the presence of God Almighty, engaging in several acts of immorality which according to him has led God’s wrath on the nation.

The National Atonement Day service was organized by Churches in Liberia to intercede on behalf of the country amidst the outbreak of the Ebola virus in Liberia.
