“Forty days after the birth of Jesus was celebrated all over the world, robbers broke into my office and stole the money belonging to the church.

“The money they stole was the money the poor people, who have one problem or another, used to sow seeds and offer petitions (prayers) to God.

“Automatically, the robbers have succeeded in carrying the problems and challenges of those who offered the money to God for prayers.

“You cannot rob a house of God or a man of God and go scot-free. When you rob a house of God, you carry all the sufferings and pains of the congregation,” Ihonda-Ovienloba said.
