On Sunday 23 August, Apostle Allen Pouru conducted a church dedication service in Siririm, in the Morobe province of Papua New Guinea. On this occasion, he was joined by Apostle Patrick Silabe. Over 1600 members and guests were in attendance for the service. Apostle Pouru used a text from 2 Chronicles 6:20-21 “…that Your eyes may be open toward this temple day and night, toward the place where You said You would put Your name that You may hear the prayer which Your servant makes toward this place. And may You hear the supplications of Your servant and of Your people Israel, when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven Your dwelling place, and when You hear, forgive”.
There was much happiness in the hearts of the brethren as they gathered to mark the dedication of the church, built to the honour of God. The message was given to remember that the mercy shown by Jesus Christ is felt time and again whenever God’s children gather to worship. The plea was for everyone to come and worship in truth and in spirit. As the bridal souls, we look forward to the day when Christ returns to redeem us, and we can then experience His fellowship at the marriage of the Lamb.
