She was the most beautiful girl he had ever spoken to up till the moment he met her
She came to their village to write WAEC as an external student
Those special centre arrangement runs done by teachers in those days
He was the most brilliant student of the school
Her hair was
Curly, her lips enticing and her eyes were like crystal jars of love
He was taking a tutorial class when she walked in
He had never been to the city before but he had studied hard and was determined not to waste the money he made from his hard labour on the farm. He was going
to make something of himself
He had great dreams of travelling abroad and studying in England
Others had done it from his village, although most of them@moved to the city and travelled from the city
He didn’t know anyone who did it directly from their village and he didn’t care
He was not going to rot in the village, of that he was very sure
She was different from the girls in the village
He never saw those ones as anything but classmates and friends but he saw this lady
He saw her womanliness
He noticed that she was female and she made him aware that
He was a male
Immediately after his class, he walked up to her to practise his English
He usually practise with his younger brother who couldn’t speak any better than he did
They both practised all the same because he learnt from one of their uncles that was the only way they can
get better
She spoke well (he couldn’t tell how good she was but they both spoke and understand each other)
When she left class he walked with her
He really didn’t know what he wanted or how to say whatever he had on his mind but she liked him and they walked together till they
got to the room she rented
He turned to leave
She asked if he wanted to come in
He did and that was it
They became boyfriend and girlfriend
Her room became his classroom
She cooked, they studied and they had sex
Loads of sex
She knew so much and he was a willing student
A week to the examination, other external students began to arrive in their village
Suddenly he realised she was not the most beautiful girl in the world after all
She was the most beautiful until the more beautiful ones arrived
He realised also that she was not so intelligent
He met a lady!
One of the external students who engaged him in an intellectual discussion for over three hours and made his head spin for joy
You never knew you liked some things until you tried them
He realised he wanted more than sex and food
He wanted a mind, a brain that made
him think
He withdrew from her and started studying in school again
She didn’t put up much of a fight
It was all for the best…
Examination started, he realised something
She was the official gift the teachers offered the invigilator while the examination was going on.
He neve
saw her in the examination hall, not once
The invigilator brought the examination materials and disappeared to her room in town where she entertained him
The teachers solved the problems and all the students got settled for 500 naira per paper
Her examination was taken care of by
the principal and other teachers
It was a crazy arrangement and the first time he would ever see anything like that
He never saw her again
Once they finished the examination, she jetted off to wherever she came from and he went back to his firewood sales & farming as he prepared
for admission
A few months later, the result of his examination was released and he passed exceedingly well
He gained admission into the University of Ixxxxxx
He packed his bags and moved to the city
A week after he completed his registration, while standing in front of the SUG
He saw her walking down the road
He quickly ducked into the SUG building and watched her as walked towards the department of education
He made some photocopies and returned to his hostel
Later that evening, he bumped into her in front of the library
This time he couldn’t
She told him she was a diploma student
He didn’t say much
They exchanged phone numbers but he didn’t call her
He had his sight on a better life and she was bad news in his opinion
A week later, she bumped into her again, this time at the shopping complex opposite the school
They talked for a while, but he still didn’t say much
He would have walked away but he was too polite to do so
She told him she had some challenges with her studies and could use his help
He followed her to her rented room close to the shopping complex
They had sex again
He felt
he was too weak
He knew should have said No
He wanted to but he was too timid to do what he wanted
When they were done, he left
He never saw her again
He graduated and travelled abroad for his masters on a full scholarship
He returned to Nigeria in 2013
Started his own company
He met a lady that he was hoping to get married
One Friday afternoon, he was told by his secretary that he had a visitor
It was her and an six year old boy
He said the boy was his child
He laughed and laughed and laughed
He was way smarter than the village boy that she met years
He said he wanted to do a DNA test
She said “fine”
They did the test, the boy was his!
He said he would cater to the child, she said no
She wanted marriage or nothing
He told her to get out
She did
He got married in 2016, wife died six months later
He got married again in
2019, wife died six months later
He was told to seek help
Everywhere he went he was told he had to marry her or remain single
She had laid an embargo on him, he marries her or he remains fruitless
He reached out to her
She said it had to be marriage or nothing
He spoke with a
The friend told her Jesus saves
The friend introduced her to the brother in Jeans and T-shirt
He became a believer, full of the Holy Spirit
He met another lady in 2020
The lady was a believer, not born of blood or the will of man but of the spirit
They got married in
October 2020
They had their baby in July 2021.
Mother and baby are living and healthy

PS: His baby mama came to his office today and dropped his son, she said she was leaving for Ireland and didn’t want the child again
He called the brother in Jeans and T-shirt
The Brother in
Jeans and T-shirt told him to get a lawyer and make her sign an official document that makes him the sole custodian of the child
He did!
She just signed!
He called the brother in Jeans and T-shirt, screaming and laughing!
Jesus saves to the uttermost!

The children of the night are having a field day, promoting what they inherited from their father, living the life of darkness in this world
Their ideas, ideologies, mindsets and belief systems are not challenged, in fact they are given free course to express themselves and speak
Was it not on this app that they started a silhouette challenge?
Was it not here they did a mammary gland display challenge?
Was it not here they did a moaning challenge?
Was it not here that they displayed and celebrated a mother carrying her son’s baby with joy?
Jesus said it
is the hour of darkness!
The children of the night are thriving in their hour
One came out to make a case for pedophiles, another has boldly made a case for incest
All sorts of taboos are being touted as right in the name of modernism and openeyeism
What can darkness do but be

Pastors are not omniscient, neither are prophets, teachers, evangelists or any other office holders in the church of Christ.
That anyone would deliberately pretend not to know this in order to ridicule pastors is a cry for help
The ability to suspend reasoning in favour of folly
is a tragedy this generation is courting so blatantly
And I submit that those who deliberately do this needs serious help
I used to work as a PA to pastors, I worked with pastors of many denominations and yes I know that those around them lie to them often and they would have no
clue about the truth.
I have seen the children of pastors lie to their parents and get away with it almost all the time
This is not an indictment on pastors, they know only what the Holy Spirit reveals unto them.
Whatever is hidden from them cannot be known, did you not read this

This lady chatted me up on Twitter, she has been separated from her husband for two years and their divorce was about to become final
In the early days of their separation and disagreements, she was so convinced she wouldn’t ever marry her husband again that refused all forms of
Intervention from family and the church
She was meticulous in her life exit, so meticulous that her husband didn’t know she had rented an apartment & stylishly packed all her stuff and the children’s stuff and also hired new nannies and all in secret
It was an inter-tribal union
The marriage had produced two boys
Both boys were born in America and she had two sets of birth certificate for them
The originals bore her maiden name as the surname for the children while the one she gave her husband had his name as the surname
She said she really didn’t want

We have now gotten to the roofing stage of this project. The roofing has to be done immediately because this is the rainy season and that is the only way work can continue when it rains. (we have prayerfully controlled the rain for some days)
Please we need your support at this
The estimate sent to us for this stage and the ceiling is about 3.5 million naira for both materials and labour. Unlike Nigeria, the hardware store in the Philippines is like a supermarket
The prices are fixed and we know exactly how much we need for this phase
That will be 224,500 Philippines Pesos.
The exchange rate is 1 dollar to 50 pesos and so it is easy for us to work out what that is in terms of naira
If the Lord has drawn you towards this project, I ask you not to hesitate anymore.
After the roofing, the other things we will do

We are making very rapid progress on this project. God has been very gracious unto us, blessed be his Holy Name.
I want to say a big thank you to everyone who saw the project and sent their love and other forms of encouragement. My God bless you abundantly
The project will be concluded in 18 days. As we can see from the video, this is a rural community that needed the basic structure of a place of worship where they can serve God ImageImageImageImage

Suddenly everybody is in a panic mode, a pastor called and said he had been stooling and his BP has outran a chariot at top speed, the same pastor’s wife called saying her husband got a heart attack when he heard the news
His older sister called and said “Take her for deliverance
Let her come to her senses, His mother said “Consider how long you have been holding on, remember to be like Christ and to bear it to the end”
His wife became extremely repentant, crying like a jelly Fish, “Give me one more chance, pls, one more chance” was her song of redemption
All he did was file for divorce after years of abuse, torture and pain.
That was his crime, refusing to take the abuse and the pain unleashed on him unrepentantly by the same woman who suddenly saw a shift in the power climate and started kneeling down like a frog at every given
