Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, the Presiding Bishop of the Lighthouse Chapel Interrnational has encouraged Christians not to allow adversity to come between them and their faith in God.
Bishop Heward-Mills said Sunday (April 17, 2022) that challenges were part of life and as children of God, Christians must not think that they were immune to such difficulties.
A press statement from the Lighthouse International Church (LCI) said the Presiding Bishop, however, noted that the response of Christians to adversities must be Godly and anchored on their belief and faith in God as that would help to distinguish them, strengthen and entrench their Christian faith as well as encourage others to serve God.
The advice from the Presiding Bishop of the Lighthouse Chapel came after news broke Friday that his first son, Dr David Heward-Mills, had passed.
The church said in the statement that the news broke after the Good Friday church service.
Dr Heward-Mills was the first son of Bishop Heward-Mills. David was a medical doctor residing and working in the United State of America.
“Despite the news of the death, the Bishop has displayed immense and commendable faith in God in the face of adversity and great loss,” the church stated.
