Business mogul, Prince Alex Mbata has described fathers as pillars of the home.
Mbata, in his message to Christian Fathers to celebrate this year’s Father’s Day wrote:
“It is with joy in my heart and thanksgiving to God that I salute all Christian Fathers on this auspicious day of the celebration of the Christian Fathers.
“This day comes yearly with joy and thanksgiving to celebrate the Fathers who are the fountains of God’s blessings. Indeed, the roles of fathers in the various homes cannot be overemphasized. Fathers, by the designs of God are the pillars of the homes. This no doubt, comes with great efforts and sacrifices.
“I enjoin our fathers to continue in this God given roles in spite of the challenges. Let us continue to keep our trust and faith in Him, for He who watches over Jerusalem will neither sleep nor disappoint us.
“As we grapple with the challenges of modern society and the inherent contradictions, let us be resolute in keeping to the God’s injunctions in bringing up children and generations that will satisfy God’s will.
“Together, under His guidance, we will achieve the common good for the overall interest of all.
“May God continue to bless all fathers of goodwill.
“Happy Fathers’Day to all of us.
Prince Dr Alex Mbata, ABM.
