Pastor Leeroy Wilfred Kabs-Kanu and wife, Pastor Tigidankay Kabs Kanu , were among many pastors from all over the U.S. honored and appreciated during the Pastors Appreciation and Awards Dinner staged by the Light of Christ International Fellowship in New Jersey last Sunday.
“It was indeed a grand ceremony and I had the privilege of meeting distinguished Sierra Leonean -born pastors and ministers doing a great job in the Vineyard of God in America” , Rev. Kabs -Kanu said after the resplendent program which was attended by hundreds of christians from different parts of the U.S.
In his keynote address , Evangelist Kolleh Samura said that the work of pastors was very difficult and thus it was very essential for pastors to have a special day like Sunday when they were honored and shown that they were appreciated. He said that the pastors being honored have distinguished themselves in their respective communities not only as preachers of the gospel. They have also helped to convert many people to christianity and they have also done a splendid job to mold lives and knit families and communities together.
He said that pastors should always be respected, honored and appreciated because they are helping to better the lives of communities. He also admonished the pastors to continue taking good care of their sheep.
