The members and committees of the Reigners Bible Church that was collapsed in Uyo yesterday have reacted towards the horror that took place in the church. A release that was circulated during the day reads:
People of God!!
We thank God for taking control of the disastrous mishap that occurred during the Enthronement service held today @ our church. (It indeed could’ve been worse).
Detailed reports of injuries and fatal casualties are yet to be ascertained. We pray for the souls of the departed and implore heaven to heal the injured and broken hearted.
God in His mercies chose to spare us not out of righteousness but by Grace. Only He alone can console those who have lost loved ones. It might be critical to exercise restraint at bandying number of casualties until a proper report is released by the authorities.
This is indeed a trying time for the family of God at Reigners Bible Church,our State and indeed the Body of Christ. We ask for your kind prayers and support at this moment.
We wish to thank the Governor who returned to the scene within 30minutes to lend support and solidarity,the clergy who pulled the needed succor and intercessory prayers as well as the medical personnel,government and church officials as well as brethren in the City of Uyo and beyond who have demonstrated an uncommon response,support and intervention to reduce the burden and pain at this moment.
May God preserve and continue to bless Akwa Ibom State!
We will bless the Lord at all times…and His praises shall continually be in our mouths!!!
