“As Pastor Chris Oyakhilome celebrates his 60th birthday, it is our prayer that the Almighty God will grant him grace, anointing and strength to continue to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, minister to the poor and the broken, and proclaim liberty to the captives.

“I pray that the Almighty God will grant him good health to enable him to render more service to humanity and God’s kingdom. He will continue to enjoy God’s abundant blessings and everlasting goodness. Amen.”
