Gambia: Steps of Faith Mission Holds New Year's Congregation

Steps of Faith Mission International recently convened a New Year's congregation at its SeyerrJobe auditorium in SerreKunda, to pray for the people and the country.

The religious gathering, which attracted a large turnout, was welcomed with happiness and joy, as it also availed the members the opportunity to wish each other the best of luck in 2013. The theme of the gathering was "Leaping Miracle".

In an interview with the Daily Observer, Apostle Chris Chime, the general overseer of the Steps of Faith Mission International, described the night as important, as they entered into a New Year, with God's blessing, favour and protection. He informed that they used the occasion to pray into the future, for the entireChristians, as well as their fellow Muslim brothers and sisters for God's guidance.

His vision for this year, Apostle Chris Chime declared, is to open another branch of Steps of Faith of Mission International, especially in the upcountry, to cover areas that are difficult to reach, in their quest to spread the word of God. It is also among their plans, he said, to train more disciples to do the work.

For his part, Pastor Vincent stated that the purpose of the night'sservice was to pray for the protection of the people into the future, and for the nation. Pastor Micheal Okpe and Pastor Famous expressed similar sentiments.
