Over the weekend the Trustee Board Chair of the Mount Nebo Baptist Church Dea. Dee-Maxwell S. Kemayah, Sr. rapped against disunity in the country.
Some of the Deacons honored were Dee-Maxwell S. Kemayah’ Sr, Edward B. Dagoseh, David T. Morris, and Stalin K. AjavonSr.
Speaking on behalf of honorees at the program for past and present deacons of the church Deacon Kemayah said the honorees are of the strongest conviction that those honored are not of man but that it is something that God wants to happen.
He added that the honorees assured the Church family and the guest preacher that they will continue the good work because the church is not a church where the deacons are in battle with the members and pastors.
DeconKemayah said, “From my observation, the Mount Nebo Baptist Church is a ‘pastor-led church and we as deacons recognize our role that we have responsibilities to serve the table of thee Lord’s Supper”.
He stated that both the private and public sectors must stand against every tendency that will not make any positive impact in the country’s rebuilding process.
“Besides the church even in our country during the eleven years civil war where discrimination was the order of the day, it has taken us nowhere but to destruction,” he asserted.
Kemayah said it doesn’t matter where one is from, but what matters is the value and difference they make to bring change in the society.
He said if Liberians can have a common belonging then there will be lots of great changes in the country because only Liberians can come together to rebuild the country.
He then concluded by calling on all churches and Muslim houses to be enterprising in the country because it is important to be enterprising. He also appreciated the entire Board of Deacons of the Church and contributed L$ 50,000 to the Church project by the Kemayah’s family.
Also making remarks at the program, Grand Cape Mount County Senator, Edward B. Dagoseh vowed to continue doing the work of a Deacon in the Church and then contributed the amount of L$ 60,000 towards the church’s project.
