As humans God has blessed us all with many natural gifts and talents. As Igbos God has specially blessed us in Christ with so many privileges as He blessed Israel. To whom much is given much is expected. With the many difficulties facing us as a combination of earthquakes, thunderstorms and firestorms God is asking us to stand out for Him like Elijah; to walk on the sea of our problems with the spirit and courage of Christ. – Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
