He said, “As we know, ‘Mercy Conference’ starts today, but something happened that I just want to put a message out there to people.

“I came here this morning, everybody was setting up, everything was going fine. All of a sudden, we started hearing that there was fire and something up there on the roof of the church.

“I know there would be reactions, and people will say that and that, but that is none of my concern now. The most important thing is this, we thank God no life was lost and we thank God for everything.

“We are not too discouraged but we believe in God that we will still go on with the conference.

“To everyone out there, we are not sad, we are happy for all things work together, the Bible didn’t say all good things, all things both bad and ugly.

“It is a painful experience no doubt, even someone walked into the compound mocking, saying ‘where is Jesus when this happened?’ We don’t owe people an answer, all we believe is that all things work together.
