Borrowing their radiance from their white dresses just as Christians borrow God’s righteousness, clients, sponsors, management and the managed filled the Victory Bible Church premises in Kokomlemele, Accra,
The church is just a stone throw away from the company. Close but not as close as God has been to Multimedia this past year.

Debutant to MGL Thanksgiving Services and Head pastor at the Maker’s Chapel Dr. Michael Boadi delivered an exhortation using – yes you guessed right – The Psalms 107 and referred to 105,106 too.
