THE DAY DADDY SPOKE FOR ME

It was my first few months in ministry, my Grandfather was visiting with us in Eruwa. He looked at my Dad and said, “I still don’t understand what Anuoluwapo is doing. Couldn’t he have combined whatever it is without leaving legal practice?” I honestly did not have an answer until Daddy said to Grandpa, “If I have a chance to […]

I KNOW I AM MEANT TO SERVE GOD

After sharing the gospel with him that evening (not for the first time), he told me that he knows that he would still serve the Lord. He told me a story: Back in his primary school days, he had unique experiences. His teachers called him pastor. If anyone was sick in school, before they send the person to the sickbay, […]

YOU MUST PAY THE PRICE

About three months into pastoring work in Eruwa, a friend told me about an opportunity to travel out for some weeks under a youth leadership programme. I asked my friend a question, “Church is just starting. If I travel out now, who will pastor the church? What will happen to this assignment?” I looked unserious because I did not go […]

I laid on the floor beside Olive as she made attempts to climb me. Just then, she moved away and began to crawl faster than I had ever seen her crawl in the direction of an attractive object. I called Irewamiri in excitement. I wanted her to see Olive crawling with ease and speed. At that point, the Holy Spirit […]

E-CAUTIONS: Of Tears, Emotions and The Wisdom of God

Some years back, I was visiting with someone I was just getting to know. That evening something happened. She got a call and I knew something was wrong. I picked from the tone of the call that it was a man-friend. Once she dropped the call, she said to me, “Pastor, it is because you are here o. I would […]

THE WEIGHT OF MISTAKES

A dear father who is active in missions and church planting in unreached terrains shared a story that has not left my mind. It happened in one of the villages where he went to plant a church. While he was preaching one evening with the help of an interpreter, a lady in the audience who could not control herself any […]
