Meduoye represents PFN @ memorial service of Reinhand Bonnke
Former General Overseer of the Foursquare Gospel Church, Pastor Felix Meduoye represented the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria at the memorial service organized for the late Evangelist Reinhand Bonnke.
The service held today January 4 2020 in Orlando, Florida.
The service attracted who is who in the church world.
In a well-articulated address, Meduoye who spoke on behalf of the Pentecostal body in Nigeria recalled the many strides of the late evangelist.
He described him as an embodiment of passion for lost souls.
He said Bonnke was always passionate about souls and saw the urgency in soul winning.
“He warned us against slacking in our evangelical drive. He used to tell us that as long as we live we have a duty to reach out to the lost. He used to say we have only one generation to save a generation.” Meduoye recalled.
According to him the burden for the lost exhibited by Bonnke was first among equals. “Our brother has gone home but his life challenged us. Let us take on what he has taught us. He used to tell us that carriers of the gospel change from generation to generation but the gospel remains the same.
“He also stressed that the harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few. For us in Africa especially in Nigeria we celebrate his life. He gave his all to Nigeria. His fire conference ministered to ministers.”
The former Foursquare G.O who spoke for about 8 minutes said also that the “church in Nigeria will always be grateful to him.”
He said the coming together of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria in 1985 can’t be divorced from him.
He said Bonnke donated the offering of the crusade that birthed the PFN as a seed to the PFN in 1985 adding that his support for the PFN and the body of Christ in Nigeria earned him the PFN live achievement award.”
Describing Bonnke as a true friend of Africa, Meduoye then prayed for the family he left behind saying, “Our heart goes out to his family. We pray for comfort and strength for all.”
Bonnke died on December 7 was buried in a quiet ceremony on Friday, December 20, 2019.
