first_imgThe late Reverend Maxwell P. Magbinne, a Baptist clergy referred to by members of the Fundamental Baptist Churches as “Hero of faith” was laid to rest on August 22. He died August 7 after a protracted period of illness.Having received the Christian faith as far back as the 1960s and staying therein during the good times and trials, the late Rev. Magbinne is praised by members of his denomination for roles he played in their blessed weddings; building many churches; leading many people to Christ; purchasing more properties for the Calvary Baptist Church, which he once led as a pastor; and reconciling the Fundamental Baptist Churches that almost fell apart in the 1980s.Tributes during the funeral indicated that Reverend Maxwell Magbinne was though cool-tempered, emotionally intelligent, and soft in speech; nevertheless, he could not compromise the truth for an individual’s interest.On this basis, his numerous admirers said he would use the Gospel to preach and speak the truth to the congregation without regard for anyone’s displeasure about the message he had to deliver.Sympathizers in their elegies did not end their tributes with the regular saying, “May his soul rest in peace,” but were confident that “His soul is resting in peace with the Lord.”“I knew him for saying the truth whether somebody likes it or not. As long as it was scriptural and rational for the good of all, the late Rev. Magbinne will speak it in his sermon and discussion with members of the church. He was a great man of God whose faith could not waver, and I know without condition, he is resting with the Heavenly Father,” a sympathizer elegized.In his tribute, Saye Magbinne, the Late Rev. Magbinne’s son, said for as long as he knew his father and mother, he never saw them fight. “Despite his old age and ailing condition, my dad could cover long distances during the war years just to propagate the Gospel in the interior, and no day could we be late for service. We were always punctual.”The senior pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, Rev. G. Larque Vaye, said in tribute delivered via telephone, “Rev. Magbinne was a devoted preacher, good husband to learn from, hero of faith, reconciler, development-oriented leader, a visionary and one without fear or favor when it comes to the truth.”Rev. William M. Kolaglaye, who delivered the funeral discourse, said “Rev. Magbinne, led the Calvary Baptist Church for years and purchased parcels of land, one of which the Calvary Baptist School is built on in the Fiamah Community.His widow, Mrs. Martha Magbinne, acknowledged how the two of them remained in good relationship since their marriage in 1971 and called each other ‘Mamie and Daddy’. “My husband remained faithful to his God even when he became very sick from 2008, and because he could not speak as a result of illness, he only said ‘hallelujah’ when people came around him.” Their union was blessed with six children. The late Rev. Maxwell Magbinne retired from active preaching in 2008 when he became paralyzed and dumb from hypertension. Though sick for a protracted period of time, family sources say he took his last breath on August 7 when his last cherished daughter, Nienbei mysteriously died after two days on the first job she got after completing college. The daughter was immediately buried. According to family sources, he convulsed in grief and tried to voice out, but could not because of his condition. “It was from the convulsion that he also passed away right after the little girl’s death,” a family member said.Reverend Maxwell Magbinne was born on September 9, 1948 in Yuula, Bong County. He would have been 67 years old this year. He is survived by his wife Martha who he married in 1971; five children, ten grand children; four brothers and three sisters; all living in Liberia. His profile indicates that upon completing high school, he became interested in preaching the Gospel, thereby leading him to attending the Mid-Baptist Mission Bible Institute in Tappita, Lower Nimba County in the 1970s.Upon completion, he became actively involved with evangelizing and planted churches in Monrovia and other parts of the country.He was also privileged to travel for seminars and conferences to the United States where he gained much experience in church administration.He is recorded for leading the Calvary and Beawo Baptist Churches on 18th Street and using his leadership skills to acquire properties for them, something members count on to describe him as a true visionary.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgPALMDALE — A stepped-up Antelope Valley crime-suppression effort has damaged the critical infrastructure of several prominent criminal street gangs, a sheriff’s official said. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Bobby Denham said an undisclosed number of gang members who serve in leadership capacities were arrested in the Antelope Valley Crime-Fighting Initiative. Denham, who has been assigned to coordinate the program, acknowledged targeting criminal street gang leaders to be a key component of the initiative. He said the arrests were a significant development in the Antelope Valley’s ongoing crime-fighting effort. “Organized criminal activity is directed through some of these individuals in leadership roles,” Denham said Wednesday. “By arresting these individuals, it makes an impact.” Denham would not identify the “decision-makers” or the gangs they represent, but he said the arrests involved gang members in leadership positions in both Lancaster and Palmdale. The crime-fighting initiative has produced more than 300 felony and misdemeanor arrests since it was launched March 20 on orders from Sheriff Lee Baca, Denham said. The program has resulted in the arrests of 24 known gang members. Sheriff’s deputies have also cited 27 known gang members and established contact with 91 others. Denham would not reveal a timetable for which specific locations will be targeted, but he said the suppression effort will include Lancaster and Palmdale, and surrounding unincorporated areas including Littlerock, Quartz Hill and Lake Los Angeles. — Gideon Rubin (661) 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img Genoa goalkeeper Mattia Perin Liverpool target Mattia Perin is unlikely to leave Genoa before the end of the season, according to the player’s agent.The goalkeeper has been linked with a switch to Anfield after a series of stunning displays, although Matteo Roggi says he has not had any contact from Liverpool.And he says Perin, 21, wants to stay at Genoa until the end of the season unless an ‘undeniably good’ offer arrives in the winter transfer window.“I think it’s normal that when you do well, big teams tend to be interested. But at the moment I haven’t heard anything from Liverpool so I think it’s only a rumour for now,” Roggi told“Mattia is one of Genoa’s finest pieces, but logic leads me to state that he will stay there until the end of the season.“He needs to in order to keep growing at what he feels like his home. And that’s what he thinks too.“Obviously in football, you can never say never because if in January somebody came with an undeniably good offer, then he would leave.” 1last_img read more

Could Wembley host even more NFL games under Khan’s ownership? 2 There have been some fears from fans over what it will mean for the home of English football to be in American hands.There have even been reports that the move could see Khan-owned NFL franchise Jacksonville Jaguars play more regularly at the national stadium.But Tony Khan has insisted Wembley will be in safe hands if his football-loving father takes control.“It’s an international game – I love English football and I love living in England and I just don’t see why anyone would be concerned by that,” the Fulham chief added.last_img read more

first_imgGuardiola is famously a disciple of Marcelo Bielsa, the legendary Argentinian coach, who was appointed Leeds manager over the summer – an appointment that shocked the footballing world.Prior to the campaign getting under way the Whites were backed to win promotion from the Championship and return to the top flight for the first time since their relegation in 2004, and they have started the season brilliantly to further support these claims.Bielsa’s side sit first in the division, ahead of Middlesbrough on goal difference, with the two top of the table rivals drawing 0-0 last week to both continue their unbeaten starts to the season. 3 Cardiff and Preston play out stalemate in Championship early kick-off GREAT NEWS Getty Bannan penalty helps Sheffield Wednesday strengthen grip on play-off place Delph is one of one many to believe this is the year Leeds will get back into the Premier League, having been impressed by his former club throughout the early stages of the campaign.“I’ve been watching closely and I’ve been really impressed with the way they’ve been playing,” Delph told talkSPORT.“The fan base there is absolutely incredible so if you’ve got a team that’s doing well, with fans like that behind you, it’s always going to give you that extra push.“I’m quietly confident that Leeds will get promoted this season.”Not only have Leeds been securing a number of impressive results, they have been doing so by playing some of the most breath-taking football ever seen in the second tier.

first_imgDonegal Deputy Charlie McConalogue has said there is an onus on political leaders on both sides of the border to ensure that the crucial A5 upgrade goes ahead.The Fianna Fáil Deputy has said the project must not be jeopardised by yesterday’s High Court ruling.The court quashed permission to proceed with construction at this time, because of the potential impact on the River Foyle and River Finn special areas of conservation. “This project has taken years of preparation, cross-border cooperation and investment. It is central to the recovery and development of this region, and it would be devastating if it did not go ahead,” said Deputy McConalogue.“In light of the High Court ruling yesterday, I am calling on the Taoiseach and Tánaiste to urgently engage with the First Minister and Deputy First Minister to ensure that the A5 project can proceed. We cannot allow this to bring the entire project to a halt after everything that has already gone into it.“The A5 project has already been plagued with unacceptable delays over the past two years and has lost funding as a result of work not commencing last year. There is a real danger that further funding will now be lost, unless political leaders on both sides of the border sit down and agree a way forward.“Far too much has gone into this project, and it is far too important for the future of this entire region, for it to fall by the wayside now. I am urging the Taoiseach, Tánaiste and Transport Minister to show some leadership here and start discussions with Stormont immediately on a way forward. “Transport links to Donegal are significantly under-developed and the A5 dual-carriageway has the potential to open up this entire region. It will encourage investment, boost tourism, strengthen business links, and make a huge difference to people and businesses in Donegal. It is a once in a generation opportunity to invest in the infrastructure of Donegal and the North West region. The Government cannot afford to let it pass.” ONUS ON POLITICAL LEADERS TO ENSURE A5 GOES AHEAD – MCCONALOGUE was last modified: April 9th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:A5Charlie McConaloguelast_img read more
