Okeho give thanks at the First Baptist Church, Isia, Okeho for the Centenary Celebration

First Baptist Church, Isia, Okeho
Today was a period of thanksgiving at the First Baptist Church, Isia, Okeho when the whole town regardless of religious inclination went to celebrate the 100 years of return to the origin. The church which started in 1903 in Okeho Ahoro is the first church in the town before migrating to the present location.

In the thanksgiving message by the Pastor of the church, Revd Dr TG Olawuwo,  titled, “Taking Okeho to Greater Height through the Power of Unity” taken from the book of Gen 11:1-10. The clergy explained that there are seven cardinal guides to unity, this include one language and  one speech; settling down properly; encouraging one another to work conscientiously for the progress of of the town and not going astray to equate ourselves with God. Others are seeking God’s directives; agape love and unceasing prayers.
The thanksgiving train was led by the Onjo of Okeho, HRM Oba Rafiu Osuolale Mustapha, Adeitan II and other dignitaries from the town.
