LORD, I CAN NOT WEAR THIS SHIRT

The Lord had shown me that Irewamiri was going to be my wife. One evening, I wanted to visit after work hours. I went home first to at least have a bath and change my clothes. As I pulled a shirt out of the wardrobe, the Holy Spirit said to me, “Wear that shirt”. My response was sharp, “Lord, I […]

SOLUTIONS THAT LEAVE GREATER DAMAGES 

Once I concluded the tests, the Doctor said she wanted to see my glasses. I would not know what she looked for but they said to me with so much confidence, “You took these glasses from the roadside”. I could not lie. She added, “Do you have frontal aches after a while wearing it?” I had to admit it was […]

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE TIRED?

A dear mother was recuperating. She needed to have some break from the routine of ministry. She went to stay in a new area. In about a month, she had started a children’s Bible club- leading young ones to Christ! She was also already visiting villages in that area sharing the gospel of Christ. One question struck me- What do […]

PREGNANCY WILL CHANGE YOUR TASTE

Whenever we step out of our house, we would always see an array of snails at various points on the fence of the house and in other areas of the estate. Iremawiri began to keep some really big snails.

BUILD VALUES BEFORE OPPORTUNITIES 

A dear brother who is also a minister of the gospel shared an experience that blessed my life:  He had to counsel a couple who had infidelity issues. They travelled to his base to see him. When the session was over, the husband brought out a seed. He wanted to give it to his pastor. The pastor refused the seed. […]

“DADDY, YOU TAUGHT US…”

Danielle walked into my room with an activity book in her hands. She said, “Daddy, I am sorry. I accidentally tore my book while I was drawing on it”. I told her, “Girl, that’s fine. Be careful next time”.  The next thing she said was what shook me to my bones, “Daddy, you taught us that when we do not […]

HOW TO KILL A VISION BEFORE IT TAKES OFF

As I sat with another young pastor, I asked him, “Kindly describe what you feel about ministry in one word”. He took a deep sigh and said, “Frustrating”. He had “invested” so much in buying expensive gadgets. His handbills are top-grade. They were lovely to behold but he did not ask himself whether it was sustainable and what was the […]
