You may ask “Where did Rev. (Mrs). Flora Ejiro Kwakpovwe find the strength and perseverance to place herself completely at the service of others?” She found it in prayer and in the silent contemplation of Jesus Christ, His holy face, and Sacred heart. Rev. (Mrs.) Kwakpovwe, an embodiment of success, would only be described as a huge blessing to humanity. She, for a long time, has been approaching her endeavours with much courage and this has established her as a dynamic preacher, evangelist, philanthropist and a humanitarian with a heart to touch the lives of many.
She is a woman of noble character worthy of emulation. She has a large heart to pursue the good of the ordinary people. A devout vessel of God, a rare and unique individual living for higher purposes, Rev. (Mrs.) Kwakpovwe gave her life to Christ in 1982 at Church of God Mission, Urhobo College Branch, Warri, Delta State. She experienced an epiphany, a spiritual flash that would change the way she viewed herself.
A product of Abia State University, she bagged a Bachelor of Science degree in Government/Public Administration. Her thirst for knowledge was the driving force that prompted her to attend a Bible School in Warri, Delta State. It was at this school that her self was moulded physically, spiritually and fitted for God’s purpose for her life and the entire Christendom.
Rev. (Mrs.) Kwakpovwe is a strong pillar, a visionary and a wonderful planner who complements the efforts of her husband, Bishop (Dr) Chris Kwakpovwe, a pharmacist turned preacher, publisher and writer of the lives changing devotional, Our Daily Manna.
Her sterling attributes have helped her husband to obey God’s command to become greater. As the saying goes, “behind every successful man, there is always a woman.” She works as a virtuous woman to crown her husband’s ministerial work. On Sunday December 16, 2001, she was awarded an Honourary Doctorate degree on missions by the Calvary Academy in collaboration with the Light House Christian University, Brooklyn, New York, United States of America.
She believes that the primary calling of a woman is to help her husband accomplish whatever work God has committed into his. She is a role model for the Nigerian Youth, and women at large. Her life-long devotion to the care of the poor, the sick, and the disadvantaged was one of the highest examples of service to our humanity. Today, she is the national co-ordinator, co-publisher and also Managing Director of Our Daily Manna, an internationally acclaimed devotional booklet for champions and the CEO of Manna Resource Centre. She is also the Assistant General Overseer of the fast growing Manna Prayer Mountains Worldwide, and she coordinates administration under the Manna Mountain conglomerate.
She got born again under Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor at the then Church of God Mission, Warri, Delta State with Archbishop Benson Idahosa as the General Overseer. She is a native of Ugono Orogun in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, born in to the family of late Chief and Mrs. Samson Igugu.
Her interests lie in the promotion of the rights and dignity of the poor, disadvantaged and most vulnerable members of the society. These have been her philosophy and her reason for making charity a matter of compulsion. This attribute of hers has not gone unnoticed since many people are benefitting from her ineffable gestures either in cash or kind or even both.
In March 2013, she was awarded the outstanding Mothers Award 2012 (Humanitarian) by R-Well media an Advertising Co. Nig. Ltd., African Role Model Award for Excellence in 2013; Mother in Israel by the Manna Women’s Fellowship Int’l in 2014; Female Achievers Awards by Top Celebrities in 2014; Virtuous mothers Merit Award by Media Stead Int’l in 2014; Honorary Award by Global Liberation Outreach in 2015 and still counting.
Rev. (Mrs.) Kwakpovwe is a kind caring mother; and an able companion to her husband travelling and preaching the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ with signs and wonders following. They are blessed with children.
