Speaking to the congregation, Evelyn urged the people to thank God for everything, just as she also noted that she needed prayers.

“The reason for our celebration here today is what God can do in the lives of people; in a hopeless situation, He gives them hope.

“What is good needs prayer; I need prayer,” PM News quoted Pastor Evelyn as saying.

She also encouraged the people to celebrate her by reaching out to others in love.

“When you receive something you can never earn, it is ground for gratitude not arrogance,” she emphasised.
