After one of the sunday services in the early 1990's in Kaduna state, Nigeria, my uncle whom I was living at that time, began to teach me and my other cousins stories about God, Creation, Adam and Eve, Cain, Abel, Enoch, Noah, and some other great men of God from a bible story book called 'My Book of Bible Stories'. I loved the stories back then and wanted to know more about God and His dealings with men.
This led me to the reading of an old torn bible I found on the book shelf. I read that bible even though I did not understand some portions, because of the complex constructions of King James english for a child like me at that time.
As God would have it, a lady from my neigbourhood came and took permission from my uncle for us to join a bible club called 'Good News Club' where I first said the salvation prayer and actually got born again. Although I did not fully understand the new life back then, I only knew that I was a child of God and should not do evil but love everyone I see and be repectful to elders, praying to God always.
I was full of joy and the seven Spirits of God entered me and then I started growing in the wisdom and fear of God which at that time became real to me and was evident to those around me. I left Kaduna state for Edo state in october 1995 to start my secondary education and then I started attending church (Gospel Mission Bible Church) with my mum who made sure I was always early to church and was present in every service including weekly night vigils that were sometimes very boring to me but I must attend or face her wrath.
The messages during crusades always made me felt Iike a sinner going to hell and also made me to always answer alter calls to be born again and be filled with the Holy Spirit. This I did severally.
Finally in october 1999, I went back to Kaduna State to continue my secondary education and it was there in church (Prayer Bible Christian Assembly) on a sunday morning that I said my last salvation prayer, was baptised and began to get some real knowledge about God and His word and my relationship with him. Along the line I joined Christ Embassy Agbor Park, Benin in october 2006 an in January 2007 Pastor Chris came to Benin and imparted my spirit so much so that when I went back to Kaduna that same year I told the pastor of my former church where I was a worker that I was already a member of Christ Embassy when I went to Benin and would like to stay in Christ Embassy Church till Jesus comes.
He agreed, prayed with me and let me go. Wow! I join Christ Embassy Kaduna and Pastor Ambrose with Pastor Dupe Isesele both taught me God word and its application to real life situations.
I also attended foundation school, and joined a cell. l did not just grow me rapidly in my spirit and can hear God's voice as a result of this, but I have also become a soul winner, a giver, an encourgment to many, and I'm fast becoming the word of God.
I thank God for everyone He used as instruments of my salvation and growth. I also thank God for possessing me with His Spirits and for the precious gifts of Jesus, the Holy Ghost and great men of God like Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and others who are working for the betterment of my life today.
