“The revival helped build morals by fighting vices like promiscuity, promoted hygiene, education and food security.”

The president emphasized that Christianity today talks about subduing and managing the earth.

“I ask the church to protect the environment in this line,” he said. “Just like the revival changed things, the church should mentor the youth. Teach them hard work and discourage graft.”
