Just as he promised to use his 40th birthday celebration to touch the lives of the less privileged, celebrity cleric, Chris Eke did exactly what he said he would do.

July 17, 18 and 19 last week would remain indelible in the lives of the inmates of the kirikiri maximum prison as well as the children at the Heart of Gold Hospice located in Surulere and members of his congregation

The handsome founder and general overseer of the Word and Spirit Assembly, located in Ijegun, Satellite Town, in Lagos  together with his family, his team, The Great Ambassadors and some Nollywood acts such as Amaech Muonagor, Chinyere Winifred and Ebere Okaro stormed the centres with gifts and cash to celebrate the man of God who is a product of grace.

At the hospice, it was a mixed feeling of gratefulness to God and soul searching when they met the special children who were well taken care of by Mrs. Laja Adedoyin. Some joine d him in cutting the cake and Eke promised obviously moved by what he saw promised to do more.

Eke spoke briefly as to what informed his decision to celebrate his birthday with the less privileged.

“I have the inspiration to celebrate with the poor, the less privilege, those who cannot help themselves.  In life, you have to look back and you will understand that God has been faithful. Where you are coming from is also important as to where you are going to. God has been so good and his goodness is what I am celebrating. Yesterday I went to the prisons to celebrate with them.  I’m here to celebrate with special children. I just saw what I have never seen before. It has added to my experience and commitment to God. It’s just the grace of God. I am thanking God for clocking 40. The journey of 40 years is not the journey of 40 days. The greatest gift to man is the gift of life. I am grateful to God from where he took me from. I am a product of grace. You may not be of a noble birth but when the grace of God locates you it takes you higher. If God campaigns for you, men will vote for you. Grace is speaking in my life and that is what I want to see more.”

The celebration was rounded off at his church the following day.
