The Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) has commenced the 2018 maiden women pilgrimage to Israel.

Speaking during the inaugural flight on Monday in Abuja, the head media, NCPC, Mr Celestine Toruka noted that the pilgrimage exercise to Israel was scheduled for  May, 28 but was rescheduled for July, 30 due to visa challenges with the Israeli authorities.    

Mr Toruka stated that the maiden women pilgrimage was introduced to ensure Christian women enjoy the opportunity to participate in pilgrimage and to also share their Christian values.

He added that the aim of the pilgrimage is to bring Nigerian women together under one umbrella and strengthen them in their various roles.

“Women are pacesetters in the world, and are distinctive in lifestyle, ministry and leadership. They have great influence in nation building and by the time they return from the exercise, there will be changes on the nation,” he said.

Also speaking, a board member of the commission, Rev. Anthony Fasipe, decried the spate of absconds during pilgrimage.

Fasipe reiterated that pilgrimage is a spiritual journey and should be treated with all seriousness.

He urged women to pray for the grace of God upon their family, and progress of the nation during the spiritual exercise in Holy Land.
