The Christian Community Deliverance Church (CCDC) of the United States of America (USA) led by Evangelist Christiana Greene and team in collaboration with the Kenema Council of Pentecostal Churches (KCPC) in Sierra Leone has started a five days crusade with the theme Healing of the Land Reconciliation Crusade at the Police barracks field in Kenema City.
In his statement the Town Chief of Kenema Chief Lansana Ngombulango said there is religious tolerance in Sierra Leone adding that he is a Muslim but he takes part in Christian activities as a stakeholder in the community.
He also said since the country has gone through 10 years of war coupled with a lot of economic hardship which he said is due to the bad blood that was spilled in the country, he prayed ‘let there be abundant food and money after the crusade.’
Delivering his statement the Resident Minister East Hon. William Juana Smith thanked the organizers of the crusade adding it is the right topic because the land needs to be healed.
He also stated that everybody in the country suffered at the time of the war and that people are traumatized, indicating that the crusade is necessary so that God will forgive our evil deeds and bless the country so that development will reach in every corner of the nation.
The Resident Minister further called on all to respect each others religion and to remain united for development so that sanity will continue to reign. During the crusade all the tribes in the country prayed for the leaders and the country and asked God to forgive our sins and heal the land so that everybody will live peacefully.
