Former Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, Rev. Dr. Lawrence Bropleh, has appealed to Liberians to practice high degree of gratitude with better attitudes.Rev. Dr. Bropleh made the utterance last Sunday at a Pastor Appreciation Day program at the Mount Galilee United Methodist Church, in Lower Harlandsville Township, outside Buchanan City, in Grand Bassa County.Rev. Dr. Bropleh, who preached on the theme: “Gratitude with Better Attitudes,” from Galatians 6:6-10 called on Christians, especially Liberians to share all good things they have with each other without any form of discrimination so that God can bless and reward them.“Be not deceived. God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth thatshall he also reaps,” he said.He urged Liberians to be generous and hospitable as well as being dedicated and committed to love and share with their fellowmen for oneness in Jesus Christ and should not only do for public sentiment, but must do good for people to consider them to be Christian.He cautioned Liberians not to join other people to talk evil against their leaders and fellow men especially those who have previously done well for them.“Be your brother’s keeper,” he said, “in time of trials, temptations and tribulations in order to fulfill the law of Christ. When one thinks about himself and no one else, when he is nothing, deceives himself, therefore we must desist from selfishness and practice ‘general spirit with generosity”During the colorful occasion, 13 pastors of the church received honors of appreciation for their devotion and numerous contributions toward the church.On behalf of his fellow honorees, Rev. G. Roosevelt Goah, Sr. acting pastor and superintendent of the St. John River district of the United Methodist Church Liberia Annual Conference (UMC-LAC) thanked officials and members of church for remembering their contributions towards the upliftment of the church during the year under review.The honorees were later pinned and given gifts by their respective relatives and friends from various departments of the churchShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Former Aston Villa star Alan McInally has told the club to cash in on Liverpool target Christian Benteke and use the money to fund a squad overhaul.The Belgian striker has been a big hit at Villa Park, where he has scored 42 goals in 88 Premier League games, but is now keen on a move to bigger club.And McInally reckons if the Reds bid enough for the forward then the powers that be should allow him to leave and let manager Tim Sherwood splash the cash this summer.“I don’t think he wants to stay and it’s really difficult to make him stay,” he told the Sports Bar.“If someone is going to give you £30million for him, I think you let him go. You pat him on the back, wish him good luck.“Hopefully Tim Sherwood will get the lions’ share of the fund from the transfer to try and improve the squad.
The Italian defender is currently on loan with Sampdoria, where he has just played in 12 matches.Italian center-back Lorenzo Tonelli started his professional career with Empoli in 2010 in the Lega Serie A.There, he established himself as a good element and played in 159 matches, scoring 14 goals in the process.He then was transferred in 2016 to Napoli, where he had a very difficult time making a name for himself and didn’t play much.Tonelli was then loaned in the summer of 2018 to Sampdoria, where he is still struggling to do well.“Will I stay at Sampdoria? We’ll have to see about that, it depends what the clubs decide,” he told Gianluca Di Marzio.“In Naples, they say that I don’t play a lot here to try to lower the price of the redemption.”Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“I call this politics I’m not sure if this is true or not, as a player I just focus on practicing and give my best if given an opportunity,” he explained.“What do I prefer between Napoli and Sampdoria? I want to find a solution that suits me and my family, I want to find a club that believes in me, if it’s Sampdoria great if not I’ll find another one.”The footballer’s lack of game time has not allowed him to develop further.He was called up to the Italy national team U16 team in 2006, and then in 2010 to the U21 squad, but since he’s not getting enough play time, he’s missing the chance to be playing for the Azzurri.
