It is with great fanfare that the “JEVIC” (Living Youth for Christ) has invested during the period from 22 to 26 April 2015, the Oyom-Abang neighborhood, located in Yaoundé (in Cameroon) for an Evangelical campaign under the coordination of the national responsible of “JEVIC”, the Reverend Pastor TCHANA Landry.
This evangelical program started on Wednesday 22 and Thursday, April 23, 2015 through awareness sessions. This stage of the program was to distribute treated to local residents and its surroundings, and invite them to take part in the evangelical crusade.
Friday April 24, the evangelical campaign which was held at the crossroads Camp Sonel Oyom-Abang, began around 4 p.m. by the animation performed by youth. The evangelization in that day was conducted by the Evangelist of the day Brother Samuel FMUKAM under the theme: the misfortune of Man comes from himself.
Through biblical passages such as Genesis 3, 1-10, 1 Corinthians 6, 9-10, Isaiah 48, 22 … The evangelist told the audience that the Man is the cause of suffering and all the torments that we live today. The Man is the author of his downfall and separation with God the Creator. However, the good news is that GOD, not wanting the eternal loss of Man, has initiated through the latter reconciliation with God through the atoning death of the Lord Jesus according to John 3, 16: <<For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life>>.
After the sermon, the evangelist will launch the call to invite those who accepted that Word and undertook to renounce the old life, the evil life and walked in a newness life before God according to His Word, to stand up so that the servants of God can pray for them. About twenty-one favorably received this invitation and committed to follow the Lord JESUS for the rest of their lives.
The evangelization continued that first day in the same vein by Pastor TCHANA Landry and Brother Eléazar TCHEMTCHOUA; the aim being to bring everyone to become aware of his situation in relation to his Creator and to make the decision to reconcile with him. This first day will end at around 8:00 p.m.
During the second evening of Saturday, April 25, the evangelization will be conducted by the Pasteur TCHANA Landry. In the same vein, it will continue to explain to the audience that Man is the source of his own suffering because of the rebellion of life to which he gives himself every day. For all the suffering people endure on earth (diseases, wars, moral suffering, destruction of families, …) are the consequences of disobedience to the Word of God. But thanks to the Lord JESUS, Man can find peace with God to live happily on this earth and inherit eternal life at the last day. The evangelization of that day will be mainly based on the text of Isaiah 9: 1-3 and Luke 4, 17-19.
During the evening, Pastor also addressed a prayer to God so that he confirms the truth of his Word by healing those who came being sick. After this prayer, about ten people testify that they came ill and after prayer, their suffering ceased.
The closing worship service chaired by the Reverend Pastor TCHANA Landry was held in the assembly of Oyom-Abang. The basic text was taken from the book of Luke 12, 40-50, preaching the theme: Believing in God without hypocrisy.
The preacher told that like people whose story is recounted in the generated text, many believe that the word of GOD is true, but refuse to commit to walk in it for fear of the eyes of men, for fear of losing the honors which are due,… He explained in accordance with the basic text, that he who obeys JESUS does not obey to JESUS but to GOD and only one who obeys GOD will take part in the eternal life at the last day.
It is in a joy’s atmosphere that the worship service was completed at around 12 noon with a meeting between the servant of God and about 25 new ones who have accepted the invitation of the LORD and took part to this closing worship service.
All the beloved are called to pray to GOD that these new souls dwell in his house to serve him to eternal life.
