“God will not abandon her and she will not abandon her people as she will be interceding for us. We equally pray that one day the mother church will start recognising Raya as a martyr.”

It will interest to know that Late Raya was a daughter of the MD/ CEO R&S Lotto company Francis Chidiac. She met her untimely death few days to her wedding day. She was killed because she refused to yield to demands of someone who was on bent to defile her.
