The Redeemed Christian Church of God has begun its annual Holy Ghost Congress with worshippers looking unto God for miracles.
The church on Monday started its one-week programme themed ‘The Great Turnaround’ at the church’s campground at Km 46, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
When our correspondent visited the campground on Monday, worshippers from various parts of the country were seen trooping in for the programme.
One of the participants at the RCCG Holy Ghost Congress, Efio-Okon Ita, who came from Cross-River State, told our correspondent that he was expecting God to turn his life around in the programme.
He said, “I came to the Holy Ghost congress last year December and it was a great event for me because I had dominion, so this year I have to make sure I don’t miss it since I have less busy schedule. I am believing God for a great turnaround because immediately I got here, so many things have happened and I believe that before the end of the programme, I will have more testimony.”
Urging people who are not in the campground for the programme to endeavour to come, Ita said, “I will advise people that are not yet here to come to the campground to experience what the Lord is doing here because it is marvellous.”
Another participant from Ogun State, Akoh Godwin, noted that his family was looking up to God for a particular miracle and that he believed that the Lord would answer his prayers as he had attended the programme.
He said, “I was here last year and I enjoyed what the Lord did in my life through signs and wonders and that is why I’m here. We are looking unto God for certain things in my family and I believe because I’m here, God will do something about it. I’m here physically because I believe that being on the holy ground, miracle will happen than watching it on television.”
A participant from Delta State, Fortune Edward, said, “I came to the 2019 Holy Ghost congress with a lot of expectation and I’m expecting God to give me an encounter that will turn my life around because I need a change in my career and destiny and I believe God is set to do something for me this year.”
Another participant from Edo State, Esther Gbolagun, expressed her optimism that God would answer whatever she asked for in the programme.
She said, “I believe God will do everything I ask for in this programme because I trust Him and He has never failed me. He did it for me last year and this year, He will do for me more than I ask for. I decided to come to camp because I know I will experience a different encounter than staying at home watching it on television.”
The turn out for this year’s RCCG Holy Ghost Congress, is expected to exceed that of last year, since reports and statistics have shown that more and more Christians are getting carried away by miracles, signs and wonders than striving towards a holy lifestyle and internalising the word of God.
