Chatting with PTL News preparatory to the celebration, the Shepherd in charge, Assistant Superior Evangelist Henry Gbeminiyi Akinnuoye said that the thanksgiving service like any other celestial Church of God was to thank God and show their appreciation to Him for all God had done for them in the year, and the event would be used to appreciate God, as well as roll out awards to some Church members who have distinguished themselves and even non members in the public space who have proved their gifts and talents in the area of their calling.
The awards will be presented on Sunday, the day of the grand finale. The awards will be given to some important persons within and outside the church across all walks of life.

“Friday is for the family which we call Hamoshia Family Day with Medical consultation. There will be visitation on Saturday to the less privileged homes and cleaning of the environment will follow in the afternoon.
The business man turned prophet spoke on how he came about the name of the Church Hamoshia.
“The name was suggested to me by a friend. That was after God had asked me to build a Church for Him. I went to pray somewhere and a woman gave a word of revelation that God said I was building a house for myself but not thinking of building one for God, she told me that God wanted me to build a house for Him and I should not ask anybody money while building it. Before then I had worshipped in nothing less than 68 parishes of Celestial Church of Christ. The message was delivered in 2010 but I did not take any step until February 2015.
“When I was reluctant but God in my dream told me to do it or He would touch my business and I know what that could mean. We started in February and completed in December 2015.
“About the name I called many prophets to confirm, and they said Mary gave birth to a baby boy and gave him a name nobody knew and called him Yeshua Hamoshia, meaning Jesus the Saviour. That was where we got the name from.
“The church is part of the larger Celestial family. I have been worshipping in celestial Church, and I don’t believe in Church politics, but I believe in the God of Oshoffa. After building the church I was asked to coordinate Sunday School. One Sunday a lady in the church told me that me my time had come to work for God. You know in Celestial we don’t joke with what God says.
“The commissioning of the church was to win souls and not take money from anyone. I went to God to ask him and he told me to start and serve Him. I still used to preach in other churches even when God told me to start to lead the church.”
He also spoke on how he was able to come fully into Church business. “Starting was not easy, but God was on hand to confirm His word. When we started members began to come to the church. For the first year I grew lean and lost weight. We started in a small place but God has taken it over. It’s all about God. I had to shelve my private business the day I decided to take up the ministerial work. I had to stop my business because a Cele Shepherd is a Levite and I stand on that.”
On how he was able to cope, the Ile Oluji, Ondo state born Shepherd said again, “In the early days it was not easy. In the community people complained about the environment, they complained about noise. We had to stop many of our programmes. There was a day we were having a vigil and police came to stop us. It got to a stage that I had to go to God on what to do. God said I was the one that caused it, that if I had bought the former place there would have not been that interruption.
“That same day God provided this new place almost an acre. Obedience is better than sacrifice. Above all, it is about faith in God. Whenever we are dealing with God we have got to obey. If we had told God to fight for us, we would not have been where we are. God took us to our own promise land.”
