The Moderator of the PCC the Rt. Rev. Fonki Samuel Forba has consecrated two Rev. Sisters (Evangeline & Irene-Glory) into the order of the Emmanuel Sisters of Bafut in their new community at PC Foumbot on Wednesday 09th December 2021.
The Moderator was assisted at this very deeply solemn and spiritual moment by the Synod Clerk – the Rev. Miki Hans Abia, Rev. Sr. Judith and the Prioress of the community – Rev. Sr. Kiven Shalom.
Preaching from the book of Ruth 1:11-18, the Moderator titled his message on the theme “Sacrificial Love”. The Moderator thanked the families of both Srs. Evangeline and Irene-Glory for accepting their daughters to join the order and promised them blessings from Jesus Christ himself.
The crowd-pulling event brought in several clergies, Presbyterians and family members to witness the occasional event.
After service, then came the ‘traditional marriage’ ceremony, where the families symbolically offer their daughters to Jesus for service onto their life’s end.
The event ended with lots of merrymaking and joy in thanksgiving to God.@PCC Webmaster
