Pastor Loses Wife, 3 Children In Road Crash And Still Preaches In Church The Very Next Day.
On Saturday night, eight persons including a Pastor’s wife, Pastor (Mrs) Hellen Samuel, her three children, Saviour, Ensigne and Purity, were reportedly killed in an auto crash in Katagbegi village of Niger State. The accident occurred when the bus owned by the Niger State Transport Authority they were travelling in ran into an articulated truck at a bad spot along Bida-Minna road.
The family of Pastor Abraham Samuel of the PotterPorchChurch, Minna and the other passengers in the bus were said to be travelling from Lagos to Minna when the crash occurred at about 8pm, Saturday night.The bus, according to eyewitness, was said to have caught fire shortly after the accident, thereby making rescue efforts difficult. Only one passenger was rescued alive with serious burns.The passengers were said to have been burnt in the vehicle because the local people that rushed for the rescue efforts lacked the capacity to curtail the fire.
The Pastor preached during yesterday’s church service after which he announced the demise of his wife and three children. Members of the church screamed at the news but the Pastor remained calm with elders of the church around him. According to Pastor Samuel who, however, maintained sober mood “My wife and the kids are resting.”
