It was one afternoon of the first week of January 1993. i belonged to the Cherubim and Seraphim church where a woman had prophesied that with the spate of death in our lineage at the time, i was the next on line.
scared and totally terrified i ran to a cousin of mine CHIBUZO OSIGWE now a co-ordinator of one of the satellite churches in Abuja. I told him about the prophecy but he laughed me to scorn saying it was a lie.
Not prepared to leave for school yet, i pressured him to take me somewhere away from the village where i had been given the prophecy. Together we left for school (Fedpoly Oko, Anambra State in Nigeria).
That evening as we arrived he took me to the pastor of the BLW fellowship on campus to which he belonged. He narrated my story and the Pastor (Pst Mary Jones) joined him in laughing at me very well.
She took me through some scriptures and told me that i could not die now because Christ died that i might live. Thereafter,she led me through the prayer of salvation and i became born again! i got filled with the spirit the next day during the fellowship's Tuesday ptayer session then tagged 'MARATHON'.
From then i spoke in tongues intermittently. Remarkably, on our way to the camp meeting of 1993 which held at UNIBEN (BEYOND THE SANCTUARY)while we were singing and praising God in the bus i suddenly burst out in tongues and it has been consistent since then.
Halleluyah! My first leadership position came immediately after the camp meeting when i was made one of the prayer co-ordinators in the fellowship. Today i am an ordained Pastor in the Ministry serving under Pastor Archie Aseme in Aba.
My special thanks go to Pastor Arinze Emmanuels who sacrificed his time and resources to nurture me in my early days as a Christian. God bless you sir.
