IT WAS time for stocktaking and celebration for Egalitarian Biblical Society, Isolo, Lagos, which celebrated its 11th anniversary on January 19. William Eyefia, president of the society, said the anniversary had afforded the society the opportunity to reflect on its activities.
Eyefia said God has given the society and its members victory and that the victory has remained a reminder to the members of their humble beginning. “It is our policy to encourage people to look back with a view to moving forward. The concept of this victory came to one man in 1999. He was quick to design a programme to mark such an event. He sold the idea to many people and today we live to tell the story of victory celebrated,” he said.
Eyefia added that the celebration of the society’s victory called for vigilance. “Our victory in the past and victory today is no guarantee of victory tomorrow. We cannot afford to lower our guard against the enemies. We should be fervent in our prayers, circumspect in our work, and faithful in our service to God and humanity.”
Emmanuel Howard, an apostle, who presented the keynote address, congratulated the society for its vision and continuous work in the vineyard of God. He advised the society not to relent in its good work that has given it victory in the past 11 years. Egalitarian biblical society is a registered society with the Baptist Church. The society is into evangelism and helping the less-privileged in the society. It is also assisting some orphanage homes like the SOS Orphanage Home, Isolo, Lagos, by providing for its upkeep. The society also used the celebration to launch a book written by a member titled “Just like Yesterday.”
