Mercy Johnson and husband melt hearts with new house gift for a total stranger
Months back, Mercy Johnson and her Prince Odi Okojie had warmed the hearts of Nigerians by gifting a septuagenarian, Elder Francis Uhioh of Amando Quarters, Amendokhian, Uromi a brand new house.
Sharing photos on his Instagram page, Prince Odi Okojie gave thanks to God for helping them fulfil the promise made to the stranger, whom they have never met.
“Dear friends and well-wishers,
To the glory of God Almighty, Yesterday the 16th of June, 2022, I and my amiable wife, Mrs Mercy Johnson Okojie kept our promise as we officially handed over the keys of the brand new house we built for the septuagenarian, Elder Francis Uhioh of Amando Quarters, Amendokhian, Uromi. It particularly excites us to see joy and happiness restored back to this family whom I have never met until yesterday at the official opening ceremony.
Like I have said before and still reiterating now, showing love and bringing succour to people in dire need is a divine calling for me. Giving back to the needy amongst us is not a feature of how much one has in the bank, but of how much love one has at heart.
In our outreach programmes over the years, I learnt that there is a special kind of joy that comes with uplifting people no matter the strata of society they belong to. It pleases God when we do the least we can for fellow brethren, especially in critical situations.
Let me use this medium to thank my great mentor, our father, a philanthropist of excellence and a passionate lover of God, Bishop Matthew Okpebholo JP and his entourage for squeezing out time from his ever-busy schedule to grace the occasion of the opening ceremony despite the heavy downpour. My father sir, Obulu! Obulu!! Read more here.
