A young man has passed on while performing energetically in church, according to news making rounds on Facebook.
The sad report was first shared by one Jackson who revealed that the deceased who happens to be a former student of Godfrey Okoye University Enugu and Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) died on Sunday at the auditorium of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
According to Jackson, the late Jay Ray Maya after putting up a great worship session while playing his favourite instrument the guitar, fell on the altar but people thought it was part of the worshipping process until he was found dead later.
“He wasn’t sick. His mum said he has gone to be with the lord that God has called him, that he died on the altar while worshipping God, that the way he played yesterday(The Bass Guitar) he has never played like that before that he Knelt down worshipping and later lay down till after the worship everyone was up but he was still there before they came to raise him up and found out he’s gone 2 rest with the Lord. RIP bro Jay Ray Maya aka E-Major. 4ever in my mind.” he wrote.
Another close friend eulogized him by writing;
“He slumped and died in church. Jerry was such an upright Christian who lived a life worthy of emulation. I want to quickly remind us of the scripture that says…we should not mourn like the people of the world when a believer dies. Jerry has gone to be with the Lord.” he said.
