The case was a nail biter
She was a medical doctor
She graduated top of her class
She got a job at one of the best private hospitals in Lagos
Her pay was reasonable
She met him at a friend's birthday party
They were from the same state
He was a business man with great potential
they got married after one year of courtship
She was already 29 and had always desired to have a family of her own
He was 34, he had waited for a long time to get the right woman
She was it
She got pregnant immediately after their marriage and delivered a bouncing baby boy
got a bit tricky after then
She came from a wealthy home where things were expected to be done in a certain way
Her mother saw the evidence of some struggle in their home and called her attention to it
She told her mother things will get better once she was able to write her
professional exams
She would become a consultant and earn even more money
Her mother said "Okay"
But her mother had misgivings
She raised her daughter to be the best and her daughter was the best in her class
How come her daughter was not enjoying the benefits of being the best
Her daughter and her husband had only one car between them
That was not what she was expecting
Her daughter's colleagues had the time to study for their professional exams and most of them had become consultants
Her daughter was still struggling through life
When her mother got
home, her mother told her father what she observed
Her father decided to help out in his own way
He approached the commissioner for health and asked if his daughter could be employed in the state's healthcare system
From experience, he knew those working for state hospitals have
more time on their hands to prepare for their professional exams than those in private practice
He was told to write a letter to the commissioner for health and he did so
He called his daughter to explain the steps he had taken to help her career
The daughter told her husband
husband nodded
When they didn't get any response from the govt, the husband himself called an older brother and asked him to intervene with the commissioner
The older brother intervened
The commissioner looked into the matter and she got employed into the state government's
She resigned from her job in Lagos and started making arrangements to relocate to their home state with the children
Her husband's business was in Lagos & it cannot be moved
They had agreed that he would be coming over to see them as often as possible at her new station
A week after she resigned, she got a message from their resident state's conflict resolution dpeartment
Her husband had written a petition against her taking the children to another state citing disruption of their education and other things
She was shocked
They were sleeping on
the same bed
He didn't give her any indication that he was not in support of their plans
She asked him about it
He kept mum and told her she would find out what she did wrong when she got to the meeting
They got to the meeting, he claimed her family had taken over the running of
the marriage
Her parents had perfected a plan to lure her and his children back to their state and tear the family apart
He made it look as if she was a puppet and her parents were the puppeteers of her life and he insisted he would not be led around by the nose
The government
officials told her she couldn't take the children as long as her husband didn't want them to be taken
She cried all the way home
She had purchased their travel ticket and all
Why the sudden change of mind
She called his older brother and explained everything
After the discussion,
she realized he was not acting alone
His family members were in the know
She called their pastor and the pastor arrange a meeting
Her husband said she was returning to her parent's house with his children and he would never permit that
The way he said it was how it looked on the
surface and he insisted that was how things truly stood between them
She was short of words
If he had told her to rent a flat in their home town she would have done so but he didnt
He didn't even give her a cent in support
Her husband was suddenly against her resignation and plan
to move out of Lagos
She knew he was influenced by his family members to go against all her plans and efforts
What she didn't understand was the reason behind the sudden animosity
That night, out of frustration, she went into the kitchen and got a knife
She walked to their room
and woke her husband up
She told her husband calmly that if he separates her from her children, she would kill herself
Her husband was suddenly calm and understanding
He told her she could have the children and pleaded with her to return the knife to the kitchen
The next morning,
she took the children to school
In the afternoon her husband picked up the children and refused to return home with them claiming she was emotionally unstable and had threatened to kill everybody with a knife the previous night
Everybody that heard the story felt like stoning her
she had no intention of hurting anybody but what she did was unwise and she had been taken advantage of mercilessly
She pleaded and begged
She was summoned to sign an undertaken by the state government's lawyer not to pull such stunts again
Her husband and the children returned
She traveled alone to resume the new job
it was the most painful season of her life
She cried every day
Her husband stopped picking her calls and she resorted to talking to her children through the housemaid
Her parents tried to talk to her husband but he refused to pick
their calls
There were certain issues that were not so important before the whole drama started which her husband unearthed in other to play the victim
She reached out to the brother in Jeans and T-shirt on Twitter
She wanted God to intervene
She wanted her home fully restored
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt met with her husband
There was a lot of back and forth
He told his part of the story
She told her part of the story
He said he was all-in on the idea at first but he suddenly realized it was a bad idea when his wife's family took over everything
as if she was not married
He was very uncomfortable with the idea of breaking his family up just so that his wife can become a consultant
Other doctors were becoming consultants in Lagos without having to go back home and decimating the family but his wife kept saying "After all
the efforts my parents had put into this, how will I go back and tell them I am no longer interested"
The husband felt it was better they got a divorce and go their separate ways than for him to be married while his wife was living under her parent's roof with their children in
another state
He said the wife should resign
The wife said she cannot resign at that time
He said she was prioritizing her career and parent's feelings or words over their marriage
She said he was being unreasonable
The matter remained unresolved that day
Everybody parted ways
A week later, the husband got a court summons over the custody of the children
They were on holiday and the wife realized her husband was locking them in with the housemaid every day for fear that she might come and take the children away
She insisted he was a poor caregiver and
the children were better off in her care
Husband dragged the matter back to the brother in Jeans and T-shirt
Another round of back and forth ensued
They prayed
They got to court
Both sides talked vehemently against each other
After the court hearing, they met
She was in tears
"Why are you so mean to me?
You know I love you and didn't mean you any harm"
She lamented
He hugged her
Then he kissed her
Then they took each other away from the office
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt wish he could turn into a fly and see what they did to each other when they
got home that day
It would have made the story juicier
Long story short
The matter was resolved out of court
She took the children to her parent's house
Her husband visited often...Very often
She is pregnant again...

PS: The Holy Spirit is a resolver of deep conflicts, trust HIM

The first indication that "Village People" had gotten involved in his case were the persistent dreams he had immediately after buying his ticket to travel home for the Christmas holidays
He had spent four years in Spain
He left his home country for Spain hoping to find greener
pastures and he did
Even though he went to Spain as a student,he met a lady in his class who had a good head for business
The lady approached him all by herself saying she had been carrying out some studies and had discovered that she could make a healthy profit by exporting cars
to his country
The lady wanted top know if he had anybody in Africa he trusted who could clear and sell the cars and return her investment to her with a tidy profit
He told the lady he was traveling home
They had been in class together for some time and she had seen how honest he

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for giving me such a beautiful, extraordinary, exciting, fulfilling, exceptional and excellent life; a glorious life that radiates joy, excellence, and peace. I thank You for renewing my mind through your Word and enlightening my spirit to see
and walk in my glorious future. I refuse to be held back by yesterday’s experiences, for my path is as a shining light, shining brighter and brighter, for Your glory. Irrespective of contrary circumstances, I stir up joy from within; Your glory, grace, and righteousness are seen
and manifested in me. Eternal life is my present-hour possession in Christ. I have that unfading, incorruptible, indestructible, imperishable life, resident in my spirit. I’ve been brought from humanity to eternity; therefore, I have dominion over death, sickness, disease,

Let me share this testimony to attest to the fact that The Holy Spirit moves us to do his bidding if we yield ourselves to Him.
This brother saw a car he liked in Lagos, he took a picture of the car and started praying on February 12, 2021 that God will bless him with that car
On March 24, 2021 I was at the CSR wash at RCCG camp when someone drove this car in for washing. My spirit immediately cleaved to the car. I just couldn’t take my eyes off it. So I approached the seller and we got talking. Then I called the brother and said “can I give you a
Video call, I want to show you something.
The brother said “Okay”
I switched to video and showed him the car. I asked him if he liked it. He said Yes. So I bought the car immediately.
The brother and I are still shocked at how precise the Holy Spirit always is. Trust in Him!

1 Cor 8: 1Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3But whoever loves God is known by God.
4So then, about eating food sacrificed to IDOLS: We know that “An IDOL is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there
is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

7But not everyone possesses this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat

A Christian brother travelled to the UK, he disembarked from the plane to discover his international passport with 5 years visa had been stolen or missing. He complained to the officials, they tried everything they could for him. The document was not found. He was returned to
People started shouting “Village people”. About six pastors and even the ones he knew in the UK before traveling to Nigeria all saw the hand of the enemy. This brother started moving from one pastor to the other seeking a solution to the “village people” after him. His
younger sister brought him to one of our programmes
He told me everything
I asked him if he was a born again Christian
He said yes
What do you do in the UK
He said he was a barber and he had a thriving practice
Where do you live?
He mentioned the location, he said he was sharing

He started the church by the divine instruction of the Holy Spirit
He was a young government official posted to a farm settlement at the time as an agric extension officer at the time
The morning devotion he held at home every morning with his wife and children became a house
fellowship when one of their neighbour's lost a child in the middle of the night and was carrying the child off to be buried early in the morning
As soon as the dead baby was carried through the passageway where his sitting room was located, the dead baby stirred in the sack
That miracle brought neighbours in his immediate location thronging to his house every morning
Soon, the fellowship became a church
Several strange cases were brought to him by people seeking supernatural help, the power of the Holy Spirit was present with him to heal and deliver
