Amakas Interview with Sam Amaga Foundation
Dr. Sam Amaga: The total desire of Sam Amaga foundation is to be able to wipe away tears from the eyes orphans and their widowed mothers. We want to trust God that there are great spirited people who will partner with us to give hope and a future to orphans.
The plan of the devil is to deny them of the future they’re entitled to, like our guest today. She is denied of the father who has been taking care of her and now are we going to deny her of the future she deserves?
The Bible says: Psalm 82:3
LORD, in the morning you will hear me in the morning I will present my case to you and then wait expectantly for an answer.
When you defend the poor and the fatherless you do justice to the afflicted and the needy, then God will arise on your behalf.
To present Ndidi-Amaka to you in the studio this afternoon is Rev. Ezekiella who directs the media of this ministry. You’re welcome partner. Please listen to her story and be blessed.
Rev. Ezekiella: Hello Ndidi, we are very honoured and also we sympathize with your loss but we would just like you in a few moments to tell readers your story on that faithful day on the loss of your Dad.
Ndidi-Amaka: On the 28th November, 2008 at about 10:00am, I lost my Dad during the crisis in Jos. We were in the house when we heard some noise from outside. Some armed men with guns, daggers and axes came into the house and set the house on fire. They killed my Dad, his younger sister and brother.
Rev. Ezekiella: What level of education where you at that time?
Ndidi-Amaka: I just graduated from secondary school.
Rev. Ezekiella: Before that time what have you always wanted to do.
Ndidi-Amaka: I wanted to study medicine.
Dr. Sam Amaga: So with the situation you find yourself since 2008 you’ve not been able to go back to school?
Dr. Sam Amaga: What does your mother do?
Ndidi-Amaka: My mother is a petty trader.
Dr. Sam Amaga: How many younger ones do you have?
Ndidi-Amaka: Just one but she is not able to take care of us.
Rev. Ezekiella: We just want to tell our listeners/readers, nobody really understands the pain of these young ones and what they’ve gone through. Ndidi, please tell us how has it been since the death of your Dad.
Ndidi-Amaka: It has not been easy at all.
Rev. Ezekiella: As much as we want to give our viewers the opportunity to hear their stories, we will also want to prayerfully help you through this process. We thank God for what Sam Amaga foundation is doing to be a father to the fatherless and we would want to let our partners know that this is the time for the church of God to take up responsibility of saying we are not letting the enemy win. We are not going to let the enemy have the last say, we are not going to let the devil cause rage and leave a lot of these young ones in a place of struggles, defeat and pain. We are taking our stand as the church of God to say yes we are going to pray with you and stand with you. We are going to glorify God in seeing that Jesus takes the glory in the life of this precious girl.
Dr. Sam Amaga: As I listen to her story I know what it means for a girl who is close to her father to lose him in such a painful way. I know this is very emotional for you and I also know there are people reading who want to see these tears wiped away from your eyes, they want to be sure that you have a future. She has lost several years already out of school between 2008 – 2014. I call this project “becoming a father to the fatherless” and when you stand in the gap, the blessing of God comes upon your life.
Why the story of orphans moves my heart is that God has helped me to see my children through school.
Quite a number of people have gone through this scholarship like Enoch, Akpabio and Helen. Helen is in her 400 Level right now on this same scholarship because of those that have chosen to partner and quite a number of young orphans have been sent on scholarship to the university. I appreciate God for the care of Sam Amaga Foundation and the partnership of Salem University Lokoja.
And as you partner, as you are a part of those who will be the helping hands to these young ones, the Lord will help you, He will help you out of trouble, He will help your own children not to be orphaned, in Jesus name.
