Cummings visits New Georgia flood victims and empathizes with them

Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), standard-bearer Mr. Alexander Cummings, on Sunday, July 23, visited and felt sympathy for several churches and congregations in New Georgia, Caldwell, whose members were victims of flooding caused by heavy rains over the weekend.

The Montserrado County flooding caused massive damage to homes and displaced hundreds of citizens, particularly in the Caldwell areas.

Mr. Cummings, accompanied by his wife Teresa and senior CPP officials, visited and prayed at the Garden of Prayers, Healing and Delivery Ministries and Seomi God’s Family Church.

The CPP Standard Bearer also participated in several communities along New Georgia Road in Chea Cheapoo and Forky Town communities.

The visits to the affected flooded areas were followed by a special service at the Garden of Prayers Ministries where church and community leaders together dressed Mr. Cummings in robes and pledged their support for his October 10 presidential nomination.

Bishop David S. Thomas of the Garden of Prayers Ministries expressed his appreciation for the CPP Standard Bearer’s visit and cautioned Liberians against repeating or making wrong decisions due to the immediate personal gratification.

Bishop Thomas preached on the theme “Few Causes of Failure,” with an emphasis on people who ignored God’s divine instructions and were moved by what they saw. The Pentecostal bishop also warned Liberians to be careful about what they get during the election to influence their decisions, noting that “if there is deceit in your heart, you will cause reasons,” he said.

He said it was the biggest mistake Liberians made to ignore Mr Cummings’ great potential and his ability to pull Liberia out of the deteriorating economic situation affecting millions of Liberians.

In response, the CPP standard-bearer expressed his gratitude for the honoring ceremony and said that following his election as Liberia’s president, the religious community will be a crucial partner in Liberia’s transformation.

Mr Cummings said a CPP government would increase economic opportunities with a focus on young people and women who are Liberia’s future and backbone.

He equated Liberia with a bowl of rice in which all Liberians, regardless of political or religious affiliation and ethnicity, are given equal rights and opportunities to eat of it, with strict observance of the law.
