One time commissioner for Women and Social Development in Bayelsa State, Rev..Mrs. Jane P. Alek has appreciated God for His enduring faithfulness and mercies that have kept her alive for 80 years.
Family, friends, well wishers and Church members join the celebrant recently to celebrate 80 years of God’s grace at a Birthday Thanksgiving and Crusade with the theme;” The Vow ” organized by the Christ New and Living Way Ministry at the Gabriel Okara Cultural Centre, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
Speaking on the theme of the crusade titled ” The Vow ” the guest minister, Pastor Doumo Apere said a believer can never give God something and receive less, adding that when a Christian gives anything to God he receives more.
Apere who took her text from 1st Samuel 1: 10-15, 16-34 said Hannah that was called barren vowed to God that “if Lord will indeed look upon her affliction and give her a male child she will return the child to the Lord”, hinting that after Hannah fulfilled her vow and gave her Samuel, she later gave birth to seven more children.

She admonished those who haven’t given their lives to Christ to do so, as according to her the only life that guarantees eternal life is that lived in Christ Jesus, insisting that life in Christ doesn’t exempt someone from trials and temptations but that believers always triumph because whom they believed has overcome for them.
