Synagogue Church Coordinator Advocates Protection Of Widows 

By Willibroad B. Nformi

Bamenda-based "Evangelist" and Coordinator of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations, SCOAN, Bamenda Fellowship, Moses Kan Elroy Payne, has advocated for the protection and support to widows and orphans. Elroy Payne, who doubles as Northwest Paymaster General, made the appeal in Kumbo, Saturday, August 1, while on a visit to a widows group.

Kan, who boasted that he had inspiration from the Nigerian Evangelist, Prophet T.B. Joshua, advised over 150 widows to be married to Jesus Christ. He condemned such societal vices as adultery, which, he said, was common amongst widows. He said widows who indulge in adultery for sustenance and up-keep of their children will not prosper. He described money gotten from adulterous practices as a curse.

In a show of his largesse and love for widows, the SCOAN Coordinator doled out over FCFA one million to the widows. He advised them to constitute themselves into widow forums and get registered for more assistance. Speaking at the occasion, the Kumbo Deputy Mayor, Margaret Beri Lukong, lauded the philanthropic gesture of Kan. She said the number of widows present was just a representation of the situation in the municipality.

She said the generosity will greatly help the Kumbo Council in its social policy. Madam Lukong was later appointed personal representative of the Evangelist and Zonal Coordinator of the Bui Widows Forum. In an earlier welcome address, the President of the Bongatati Widows Group said her Association indulges in economic activities like trading in palm oil. She lauded Kan for an earlier FCFA 350,000, meant for the group’s uniform.

Although Evangelist Kan had earlier declared that he was not on a healing mission, the turn-out compelled him to transform the ceremony into a healing session. While he prayed over those with health and spiritual problems, a three-year old cripple, Gaius Nyuyfoni, emerged. According to his mother Relindis Kiven, the baby has never walked.

Realising the situation, Kan got the child, placed him on a table and prayed for him and he walked to the waiting hands of the dumfounded mother. As the news spread in town, many more persons came for healing. The Evangelist told the press that he takes care of over 2400 widows in the Northwest and West Region.
