The General Superintendent for the Western District of the Assemblies of God, Rev Sahr Christian Fayiah, and his wife joined the First Assembly of God Church to launch and dedicate the Redeemer Worship Centre for the construction of a Church and Administrative Complex.

This was done in a colorful ceremony of the turning of the sod and dedication over the weekend at the Babadorie, Lumley site.

worshipers dedicated the land to God and asked for his grace to complete the construction project on which they will embark.

Rev Sahr Christian Fayiah felt honored to be part of the fun great change. Previously, he said people were thinking like grasshoppers but now things have changed.

He pointed out that if anyone invests in such a project they will not only enjoy d it but it will also span to their generation yet unborn

Pastor Mrs. Lavem Buya-Kamara in her welcome remarks thanked God for a day like that and f grand breaking event. She said not everybody will see such an event and not consider it a blessing. She explained that on the 15th of May 2021, they began with a prayer fellowship at the residence of elder Pa Y.T Sesay. She prayed for him and his family to open doors.

Rev. Samuel Kargbo, the guest preacher said he is grateful to God for what He is doing at the First Assembly of God Church. He said they don’t have enough time but they have to run with the gospel.

Planting Churches, he added is not an easy task but very challenging. Rev Kargbo read from the book of Matthew 21:12 and Exodus 25:8 and gave a brief history of the house of God and the importance of building a house for the Lord.

Officially presenting the project Rev M. Buya-Kamara, Head of the First Assembly of God said that the First Assembly of God was the first indigenous church in the Assemblies of God and was built around 1946 to 1948.

It was after the First Assembly of God other churches such as Bethel Temple, Evangel, Kroo Assembly, and Faith Assembly among others emerged.

He went on to say 10 years ago, God gave them the vision to step out and they didn’t take that mandate lightly as those days they were three in number (himself, his assistant Pastor, Rev. Luck, and Rev Francis Sesay).

He also recognized the efforts made by the women’s ministry in his church we said raised money for them to buy the first church land at Kissy Town, off Waterloo about ten years ago, and from that time they have planted several churches across the city.
