Sierra Leone is one of the countries pegged to benefit a billion dollars from the Jesus City project.
This was revealed yesterday by apostle Alfred Williams of the Christ Faith Tabernacle International Churches and also the president of all black churches in England who is in town on a fact finding mission.
Briefing journalists and pastors at his Wilkinson Road house about the project, apostle Williams said for many decades, governments and non governmental agencies, organizations, charity groups, individuals from various parts of the world had been raising funds to help Africans alleviate poverty, provide medical assistance and build orphanages.
He added that, “the project is God’s inspired programme designed to place Africans in a better position of helping themselves”, adding that, “the very heart of the project is affecting Africans from the shores of the Mediterranean sea to Cape Town”.
Apostle Williams maintained that the Jesus City project was positively affecting countless thousands of people through life-changing programmes like education, medicals rehabilitation, business, leisure, homes, and churches.
On education, he said the project recognized that education was the key to a nation’s success and through Jesus City generations to come would not just receive adequate education but would receive advanced education.
On medical, apostle Alfred Williams pointed out that a wonderful resource of Jesus City medical facilities were on hand to ensure a healthy community; “this in turn creates stability in the physical, emotional and economic well-being of all who pass through”.
On rehabilitation, he stated that, “we recognize that as a nation everyone has an important part to play in progress, broken lives are being rebuilt”, adding that on agriculture over 200 acres of dedicated farmlands had been set apart for the planting of stable crops, geared mainly towards benevolence.
Pastor Ajisafe of the Sanctuary Praise church welcomed the project, and described it as one that would transform the country.
He added that, “there is a need to bring local pastors and ministers to a conference to address this great vision of apostle Williams”.
