- It is unusual for a retiree to donate all that he is supposed to live on for the rest of his life to charity
- Apostle Patrick Kingsley Ennin, from the Church of Pentecost, donated his entire End of Service Benefits back to the Church
- This will forever go down in the annals of the church's history
An area head of the Church of Pentecost, Apostle Patrick Kingsley Ennin, has left many people dumbfounded, shocked and shedding tears as he did the most honourable thing anyone could do, which will definitely go down in the annals of the church.
According to reports, he donated his entire End of Service Benefits (ESB) back to the Church to support the newly-established Chairman’s Education Fund at the Pentecost University College (PUC).
On Sunday, August 18, Apostle Ennin made the announcement during his retirement service held at the James McKeown Temple.
Explaining the reason for his action, Apostle Ennin said it was the church that made him who he is today, and that he felt that it was not proper for him to take any monetary benefits from his service to the church.
He revealed that throughout his 33-year ministry, he had never used any transfer proceeds that were paid to him. According to him, he used the funds to construct church buildings and mission houses for the church.
Touched by his action, an elder of the church, also donated a Toyota Land Cruiser V8 vehicle to Apostle Ennin to reciprocate his benevolent gesture.
The elder promised to personally service the vehicle and fuel it throughout its lifespan.
