News of the home call of Mama Victoria Avwomakpa, mother in Israel and wife of our father Archbishop Goddowell Avwomakpa reached me with sadness. But the Apostle Paul admonishes that to be with Christ is far better.
Mama Victoria Avwomakpa has been a lifelong example of Christian womanhood and motherhood as she treated all of us like her biological children. Her husband our father the Archbishop treated her with respect, dignity and love even during her prolonged illness giving the younger generation an example to follow.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his Saint. We shall see Mama on the resurrection morning.
My condolences to our father Archbishop Avwomakpa, the children and immediate family, Christ Missionaries Crusaders Church as well as the entire Body of Christ.
