Late Madam Caroline Nwielo Obadiah
The public has been called upon to live a life worthy of emulation. The call was made by Pastor David Amakor during the burial service of a member of CEHRD’S Board of Trustees, Madam Caroline Leyiinu Akori Nwielo Obadiah in her home town, Kor, in Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Delivering his words of admonition during the burial ceremony, Pastor David of Pacesetters Assembly, Port Harcourt charged members of the public to examine their lives at all times to ensure they are in good terms with God.
Describing life as a battle field, he said people should realize that their lives belong to God who has the powers to take them anytime he likes. He noted that there is no repentance in the grave and so the only opportunity to reconcile with God is when one is still alive. “Run to God because the days are evil and life is short”, he charged.
He said Caroline was a virtuous woman, who ran a good race and has returned to her maker, stressing that death is a debt everybody must pay.
