The guest speaker praised the Police Staff College for making them proud in Jos South by providing security and work to the indigenous locals.
“I have known this chapel for more than 15 years when I was a pastor in Bukuru, Nigerian Christians were happy to learn about the land for the building of this chapel.
“I am happy and pround to be here to witness what is happening today. It’s been my dream to see this chapel completed since the past 15-20 years when it started,” he said.
He added: “Running for your destiny entails commitment to what you believe in. Everybody seated here has a destiny and a purpose for which God created him or her.”
According to him, “Those who identify with you during your suffering days are your true friends, adding that it’s not everyone that you helped that will stand with you in the day of your travails”
He called on Christians all over the world to always support and stand by each other in every situation.
