“Apostle John Adolphus During, Ambassador For Life”

first_img“There was a man sent from God whose name was ‘JOHN’ Adolphus During, to bear witness of the Light” (John 1:6)Apostle John Adolphus During, Ambassador for Life! You lived a good life, a life heavily invested in service to God and humanity. You are a true Ambassador for your country of Liberia, and for your Heavenly Homeland, and I should add here that you were a great Ambassador for the Faith Fellowship Ministries International, which you represented as its ‘stellar’ Liberian Overseer.Apostle John During, Ambassador for Life! Here lies a great man, a man of great spiritual stature, a man so kind-hearted, tender, humble, and understanding. Yes, a family man who cherished family values, who upheld the sanctity of marriage, and manifested community spirit in all he said and did. He was a plain man who had nothing to hide, a man so open and real. He related with ordinary people on the streets with much simplicity and deep love – no airs about personal prestige, political position, or social status. He was indeed a man who believed that the Cross ofJesus Christ levels all men just the same way it preserves the dignity of each person. We saw this Ambassador for Life when He came to the States a couple years ago, and I turned over to him the Pulpit of Amazing Grace Church. Yet he thought it not robbery to preach each Sunday for almost three months, commuting -yes, driving himself- over an hour each way and was never late! And those of you who knew him at the spiritual level, know that he declared the ‘unadulterated’ Word of God each and every Sunday, whether the congregation was large or small! That’s why, when Apostle Williams and I met him for the first time, in November 2007, it only took ONE HOUR for him to decide to become a Member of Faith Fellowship Ministries International, and just 8 days later, we Consecrated him Bishop, and appointed him Overseer of the FFMI Liberian Region, where he served faithfully until his death. When Faith Fellowship Ministries Internationally came under the Apostolic Anointing, Apostle During, along with Apostle Williams, Overseer for Africa, was elevated and Consecrated Apostle on October 19, 2008, along with his dear wife, who was Consecrated Prophetess, right here in Soul Saving Clinic of Jesus Christ! He was a man whose philosophy of life is not different from the one aptly put by a sage of another age:“Do all the good you canTo all the people you canIn all the places you canBy all the means you canAs long as ever you canFor the sake of Jesus Christ.”Apostle John During, Ambassador for Life! His lying in state just reminds me of the writing of John Donne, the English poet and philosopher, where he said:“No man is an island, entire of itself;Every man is a piece of the Continent,A part of the main; any man’s death diminishes me,Because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.”Apostle John During’s death declares in no uncertain terms that death is a reality of which eternal life in Jesus Christ is a greater reality. Whoever dies in Jesus Christ dies to live again. For a child of God, death is never final, and as the word of God makes abundantly clear, death for the Christian is only a sleep, and as we know, we all sleep to wake up.Apostle John During! Ambassador for Life! We know where he is right now – in the bosom of the Lord Jesus. We are confident that his good works on earth followed him to his heavenly home. The Lord who knows what we don’t know, thought it wise to call him home at this time.For us who are left behind, let us be aware that every human being will face the reality of death some time, some day. Who knows when? It, therefore, becomes absolutely imperative that we surrender our lives individually to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. For in Him alone our “past is settled, our present makes sense, and our future is secure.”For the family members, especially his beloved wife, Prophetess Oretha, the children, and Soul Cleansing Clinic of Jesus Christ, we encourage you to take heart, as Jesus directed His disciples, “Let not your hearts be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in Me.” May the Spirit of the risen Lord put in your hearts the right words of comfort! For He is the trusted Comforter. Our hope in Christ is stronger than death. Beyond the grave there is hope. Prophetess, your husband is alive in the presence of God. So, Be encouraged and strengthened within you. The grace of God is upon you. The mandate of Heaven is resting upon you. The watchful eyes of Jehovah are upon you. He will neither leave you nor forsake you. He will keep you and sustain you. We decree and declare that It is well with your soul. The Faith Fellowship Ministries International Family stands in solidarity with you at this painful hour, and we hold you continuously in our thoughts and prayers. Yet, We can still affirm that Jesus is Lord!John Wesley wrote these words at the death of his beloved colleague, George Whitefield, and I lift them up at the death of my dear friend and brother in Christ, Apostle John Adolphus During, Ambassador for Life…“Servant of God, well done! Thy glorious warfare’s past;The battle’s fought, the race is won, And thou art crowned at last.So, on December 28, 2015, “There was a man -CALLED- by God whose name was JOHN ADOLPHUS DURING…who bore witness of the Light,” to which His Master declared, “Well done, John! Come home!” Done by order of Apostle Joseph Ellis Taylor, Presiding Prelate, Faith Fellowship Ministries International, headquarters, Washington, DC, USA.; Apostle Wilbert Williams, Overseer, African Region; Apostle Ethel Taylor, Overseer, Women’s Ministry International; and the Counsel of Apostles of FFMI. The Lord be with you and with your spirit. Amen.…Until we meet again, Dear Apostle, Ambassador for Life, Shalom!Apostle Ethel Taylor is wife of Apostle Joseph Ellis Taylor, the Presiding Prelate, of Apostle John Adolphus During, under whose hand, Apostle During was Consecrated, first, Bishop and a year later, he was Consecrated Apostle, along with his beloved wife, who was consecrated Prophetess Oretha During. Apostle Ethel Taylor is accompanied by Apostle Wilbert Williams, Overseer for Africa, and Prophetess Valerie Patterson, Adjutant, for the celebration.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

HP, Microsoft highlight new products for oil and gas sector

first_img….host training programme for businessesAs innovators and leaders in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector, Hewlett Packard (HP) and Microsoft, during a discussion with media personnel on Wednesday, introduced to the Guyanese population new products and technologies which could be utilised, specifically in the emerging oil and gas sector.HP product trainer Luz RomeroThe inaugural visit by officials of the international companies was organised by Starr Computer Inc, which is a front-runner in providing modern technology to the local market.The brief discussion, which was hosted at the company’s Brickdam office, saw HP product trainer Luz Romero presenting the feature address in which much emphasis was placed on the security of the company’s products.According to Romero, the company, being developers of new technologies, is focusing on security measures, so that its line of products could be well protected for the benefit of end-users.“The security pillar is one of our main concerns, because, basically security is something that concerns all of us; some of us think that it’s just an IT problem, that somebody else has to be making the right decisions. But at the end, if we are not part of the solution, we can be part of the threat. So, as the developers of new platforms, of new products, we are making a major emphasis on security trends, so we can be all safe using these new technologies,” Romero explained.In addition to this, the trainer brought attention to the newest product line of work stations, which could be vital for the graphics needs in the oil and gas industry, especially for Guyana.“In our product line, we have the work stations, it’s a special product line that is meant for those users that have graphics needs, the specific applications that need a lot of performance and reliability … An example of these is the oil and gas industry, oil and gas needs a lot of graphics performance to be able to know where their location should be, what they should do and how they can improve the investments day by day,” Romero noted.Apart from these discussions, the facilitators also hosted a training programme earlier on Wednesday for representatives from the Government, business and professional sectors, which showcased HP products with special emphasis on standard features built into the HP products that protect data and network operations.At the event, Starr Computer was also presented with the HP Platinum partner award by Caribbean Territory Manager Gustavo Guardian and was now an authorised HP service centre in Guyana.last_img read more

Pellegrini expects new Milner deal and wants Lampard to remain at Manchester City

first_imgManuel Pellegrini expects England midfielder James Milner to stay at Manchester City for the foreseeable future.Both Milner and the Chilean hinted that the deal to keep him at the Etihad Stadium was close, but talks appeared to have stalled in the last week.But the City manager has confirmed talks are ongoing and that he expects a positive outcome.Ahead of the clash against Crystal Palace Pellegrini said: “I think so. There are some differences that can be arranged.“We are talking with James. It is not easy for all the players to sign a new contract. There are a lot of things to talk, to decide, discuss. I hope finally James will sign his contract.“I repeat – the same as with Joe Hart – he wants to stay and the club wants to keep him.”The other thing on the agenda for the Chilean is the future of former Chelsea star Frank Lampard, who is set to move Stateside to City’s sister club New York City FC.The 61-year-old confirmed the club want Lampard to remain in Manchester despite his impending departure.“It is not just our decision.

‘Liverpool need a 25 goal-a-season striker? YOU’VE GOT ONE!’ Sherwood backs Benteke

first_imgFormer Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has told Liverpool they do not need to buy a 25 goal-a-season striker to solve their attacking woes, insisting they already have one in Christian Benteke.Belgian frontman Benteke moved to Anfield from Villa Park last summer in a £32.5million deal but has so far struggled to win over fans, as well as new manager Jurgen Klopp.The 25-year-old might be the club’s top goalscorer, but just seven goals in 29 Reds appearances is a measly return for the towering frontman who terrorised defences in a claret and blue shirt.Liverpool have linked with strikers galore over the past few months as Klopp looks to solve his attacking problems – the Merseysiders have scored just 30 goals this season and are the only team inside the Premier League’s top nine to have a minus goal difference [-4].But Sherwood, who coached Benteke back to goalscoring form during his short stint as Villa manager, insists they have no need to look elsewhere for the answer.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Sherwood told talkSPORT: “Klopp isn’t playing Christian on a regular basis, and he seems fit enough, so it seems that he isn’t totally sure about the lad.“For me he’s a great player. He’s a proven, prolific goalscorer in the Premier League. He’s a one-in-two, he’s a great target man and he needs to play with a rhythm.“There’s no point in playing him in one game and he’s out the next. All strikers need to play regularly to produce their best.“I scream at the TV or radio every time I hear somebody saying, ‘Liverpool just need a 20, 25 goal a season man’. They’ve already got one!“He’s proven he can do it in this country. He isn’t a player coming in from abroad and needs time to settle, he’s already done that.“He does have barren spells, as every striker does. He scored two goals in 25 games before I went to Villa, but then he scored 11 in 13 at the end of the season which kept us in the Premier League.“So perhaps it’s my fault he’s went to Liverpool for £32.5million!“He’s at a fantastic club now, with good players and given the proper opportunity he will score goals, I’m sure of it.”last_img read more

You can watch the interview now by clicking on the play button above – or on the DDTV channel to the right. Jim McGuinness reckons Antrim boss Liam Bradley is trying to play mind games by accsusing Donegal of playing ‘puke football’ and being very defensive!“Everybody is entitled to their opinion. I don’t know if it is mind games or what he is trying to achieve with it,” said Jim.“From our perspective we would be very happy that we finished the League on top of the division and the highest scoring average in the division. We won the League and from our perspective we wouldn’t consider that ultra-defensive.“I would feel that to end up at the top of the pile at the end of the League you need to be doing something right offensively and I hope that the good work that we have done through the League can be replicated on Sunday. “If somebody wants to brand it ultra-defensive and we can rack up some of the scores that we did throughout the League, then we will be happy enough to take that.”And so say all of us!DDTV VIDEO: DONEGAL V ANTRIM: McGUINNESS NOT BAITED BY ‘PUKE FOOTBALL’ JIBE was last modified: June 18th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
