Rev.Pam advised stakeholders and intending Pilgrims to cash in on the Pilgrims Savings Scheme of the Commission to save instalmentally for Pilgrimage.
He further admonished every Christian particularly the not too buoyant ones and those who would want to have a life time experience in Israel to consider the Pilgrims Savings Scheme a veritable option to actualise their long life dream of participating in the Holy pilgrimage.
The NCPC boss informed them that NCPC was established purposely for Christians as the only Christian faith based agency that has direct link with the Presidency. He stressed that Pilgrimage to Israel is biblical because it is divine as the Bible has enjoined us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
He urged them to ensure that they sensitise and encourage their members on the importance of embarking on Holy Pilgrimage to Israel.His words” I challenge you today,lets see how we can encourage Pilgrimage in your local churches”.
He averred that the only way Christians benefit from the dividends of democracy is through government sponsorship of their participation in Pilgrimage.He emphasized that Pilgrimage is a spiritual exercise and traveling exposes Pilgrims to new trends in life.
He intimated them that one of the major challenges facing the Commission is the issue of abscondment during Pilgrimage which has made the Commission to introduce stringent measures to discourage it.
