It was a glorious time on the Sunday morning of March 27, 2022 at Christ Liberty Restoration Ministries Aurora. It was the day the CEO and publisher of Afrik Digest marked her birthday in a magnificent thanksgiving celebration. It was her silver jubilee and our fabulous publisher, Azuka Vera Idam, was full of thanks and praises to the God of her salvation.
The program included special prayers for the celebrant by the Senior Pastor, Tayo Obigbesan and other pastors of the church. There were also words of exhortation by friends of the celebrant. There was music and dancing as beloved friends and family joined her in joyful sways, first, in the church sanctuary, and later at the church’s reception hall.
The celebrant’s mom and children were present and looked fabulous in their matching aqua outfit. Church members, including the beautiful wife of Pastor Tayo, Marion Obigbesan, came out in full force to support the milestone celebration.
Asked how she felt about the day, Azuka said she is extremely happy that God has brought her this far. She expressed her appreciation to all members of the church for showing her so much love and support. “I am joyful today, and absolutely grateful to God and to everyone who has helped me to make today a reality, especially my church members.”
