The National Youth wing of the New Harvest Ministries last Saturday received a windfall as the General Overseer of the New Harvest Ministries, Rev. S.B.E.B Johnson, after listening to their plight promised to give each of the 13 districts, two million Leones annually, a monthly allowance for every District President and a vehicle to the National Youth office of the Ministry.
Rev. Johnson was speaking at the Convention Reports Day of the National Youth wing at the Bo School Hall and his proclamation was received with wild applauds from the more than a thousand youths gathered in Bo to celebrate their second annual youth camp.
“After listening to your restrictions and challenges, I feel greatly honoured to make this humble donation so that youths will be motivated to work on the path of the Lord and not in the path of darkness.
However, I will frown at youths who are hell bent on castigating their colleagues just because of this pronouncement. Your Presidents have been with you when the time was bad and therefore you must be with them when the blessings of the Lord has started pouring down, for you do not know, it might be you tomorrow,” advised Rev. Johnson.
Responding on behalf of the youths, the National Youth and Young Adult President, Pastor Rowland G. Dixon thanked Rev. Johnson for what he described as his timely intervention, disclosing that they have been praying to the Lord for rescue and the Lord has answered their prayers on time.
“We were anticipating a little boost but now we can say we have enough and to spare especially when Rev. Johnson has promised us a vehicle, which will make our work easier. This is not the first time he is coming to our rescue and therefore we pray that it is not also going to be the last even though we hope to prosper in the execution and administration of our physical and spiritual works on earth.
“We promised that we will use the money and vehicle judiciously and in the interest of the Lord,” Pastor Dixon promised.
Speaking to this press, one of the youths from Freetown, Mohamed Kamara described the gesture as a step in the right direction, noting that they had been in constant restrictions from evangelizing due to the in-availability of funds. He said with the new subvention from the General Overseer coupled with their little contributions, they will in the future win more souls in their pursuit to eternal salvation.
“The likes of Rev. Johnson are very few in this country and of course if we have such people amounting to 20 in the country, I’m sure Sierra Leone will be heading for a better position than it is today. It is because of the greed and selfish administrators the country has had in the past that we are now suffering the consequences. We thank God, we have Rev. Johnson in our midst and we pray that the Lord continue to bestow his blessings upon him,” Mohamed implored.
