hello everyone, i am tony keyamo from christ embassy erediauwa, benin city, south south nigeria. fisrtly i ll humbly thank our mentor pastor chris for yeilding to the word that gave birth to us in the ministry.
i came from a family with a Jehovah's witness background with a solid religious mentality. i also flirted with the baptist,cherubim and seraphim where my father worships after he disassociated himself from the JW family.
All these years i never prayed that special salvation prayer, i didnt really know what it is to be a believer,so i was kind of lost spiritually and all. However i was introduced to believers love world before i entered the university and i attended some meetings at the YWCA in Benin City, Nigeria without really committing myself, largely because of ignorance and distractions.
i continued like that for a number of years until i started having challenges in my academics at the university. it became obvious that i ll not graduate as at when due so needed help from any quarter, i needed to grow spiritually, i needed to focus,i new something was missing inside of me, a vacuum that i needed to fill.
i became consistent in Christ embassy church after being encouraged by sister Tonia Edebire. Without any distractions from any other person, church, especially my father's church, cherubim and seraphim,but something was still missing until i went for camp meeting at the national stadium Lagos, Nigeria in 1998 it was there i finally had an encounter with God.
i have attended meetings when i was with my grand parents and during these Jehovah's witness conventions i have never been in the kind of environment that i experienced in 1998. Boy!!!, the atmosphere was electrifying and i had no choice but to surrendered my life to God.
and i cried all through the sessions. i could not just see myself going home the way i came.
when i returned home to Benin City and i told my dad and my friends my experience, my father was furious and threatend,my friends never believed me, that i ll soon join them in continuation of all our escapedes, but it was too late and thank God for that decision to go for that camp meeting of 1998. Since that day i have never looked back i have continued to press forward with a lot of testimonies.
