OLIVE, DO YOU WANT TO SLEEP?

It was a Sunday morning. Irewamiri had taken care of Danielle. Right after Danielle got dressed, she asked for food. Irewamiri excused herself to take care of Danielle but with a note, “Darling, please, would you help with Olive?” I told her with all joy but there was a challenge: Olive was still sleeping. I knew waking her up would […]

SPRAY EVERYWHERE

We had a challenge with mosquitoes in our home. We get to spray insecticides in the room before we sleep. But we discovered that after a while, at least one or two mosquitoes would find their way into the room. One day, we decided to spray insecticide in all other areas of the house while we were in the room. […]

DON’T MISS YOUR OPEN DOORS

It was a Saturday evening. I was still an undergraduate. I was spending some time with my Aunt. It was the first time I was visiting her family. She said to me, “Temi, we have a 10 minutes section of tits and bits in teens church. I would love you to share something with the teenagers”. I spent virtually the […]

HOW SHE GOT A SCHOLARSHIP

We were in the pastoral council meeting when the issue of a young girl was raised. She needed support for her academics. The key that opened the door for her was simple- She had constantly improved in capacity and character. Almost everyone in the council knew how weak she was academically and is a witness to her academic turnaround. The […]

THE THURSDAY FRIED RICE

Two of my dear ones would always get a steady supply of fried rice from Irewamiri every Thursday. Once she made our meals, she puts them into consideration. They were still bachelors. One relocated while the other got married. One Thursday, Irewamiri said, “Now, no more fried rice. He has outgrown it”. I had a good laugh but learnt a […]

DO YOU WEAR CLOTHES TO CLASS?

Years ago, I walked up to my pastor after service to exchange greetings with him. At that same moment, a young girl also walked up to him. Pastor did not blink an eye at what she wore. I was already a bit shocked. Pastor said to her, “I heard you have gained admission into the University now”. She replied in […]

“DADDY, IS IT TIME TO PRAY?”

Danielle has a way of waking up long before dawn. She will likely not sleep back once she sees either Dad or Mum awake. She woke up one morning around 3 am and the first question she asked was, “Daddy, is it time to pray?” She was asking about our family devotion. Friend, what is the first thing that comes […]

HONOUR GIVES BIRTH TO HONOUR

On my way to preach, the Lord reminded me of a vital lesson I learnt years back listening to the Father of the Faith who pioneered the ministry that invited me. The Lord then instructed me to hold on to a “Thank You” Seed. I obeyed as I was instructed. Interestingly, this father in the faith got to hear about […]

TWO EQUATIONS THAT YOU MUST NEVER BE

I was teaching my young ones in the college. While trying to explain the concept of time, energy, wisdom and seasons to them, we came up with two simple equations. First: Time Plus Energy without Wisdom equals to the life of a lot of young people. What does that mean? A lot of young people have time and they have […]

TAKE NEW TERRITORIES PROPHETICALLY

For a while this year, we decided to spend time praying for the influence of the church to extend to one of the sectors of our community. It had been a battle for almost four years. We took it seriously this year in intercession. Few weeks into interceding, the barriers began to crumble one after the other. We began to […]
