It was a glorious hangout with the inmates of Port Harcourt Maximum Security Prison as brethren of Christ Embassy Port Harcourt Zone 2, under the instruction of the esteemed Zonal Pastor, Pastor Linda Okocha, rolled up their sleeves to mark the birthday of his Excellency, the BLW President, Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome.
The Zonal Pastor, ably represented by Pastor Abigail Okonicha, remarked that the exercise was a continuation of the International Day of Service in honor of the man of God, Pastor Chris, whose birthday is on December 7th. Moments of ecstasy and joy capped the celebration as inmates expressed unrestrained excitement at the fellowship.
A highpoint of the occasion was the presentation of a beautiful portrait of Pastor Chris made by an inmate. He noted that the idea and inspiration was born out of the impact of the messages of the man of God on his life, and the painting was a timely masterpiece to celebrate a living legend.
The celebration culminated in the cutting of a Bible-shaped cake with the inscription "Happy Birthday Pastor Chris DSc. D.D." emblazoned on it. Prison warders and all attendees were entertained with dance ministrations from the Zonal Creative Arts Academy. Officials of the prison expressed their heartfelt gratitude for the demonstration of love and affection towards the inmates and the food/toiletries supplied.
