JOUNEY MERCIES AND DIVINE FAVOUR
I am testifying to the goodness of the Lord because I don’t want to be an ingrate. The past few months have been very tiring for me due to the many travels involved in my work, but I thank God for journey mercies, protection and guidance. We were invited to Abuja for an interview from my office slated for 9am and three of us travelled very early that morning to meet up. The interview was indeed tough and the panel deviated from the technical aspect to current affairs which I am not so good at. There were 23 of us from Lagos and I saw people coming out with gloomy faces from the interview. When it got to our turn, I was just praying that God would help us. Alas, we were only asked a few simple questions and thereafter given our accreditation. Glory be to God Almighty!
I want to give the Almighty God all the praise and adoration; indeed He is a wonderful and faithful God. He saw me through the 9 month journey of pregnancy and gave me a supernatural childbirth. I also want to thank Him for the privilege to mark another marriage anniversary. This month is indeed a month of double grace for my family. To God be all the praise, honour and adoration. Amen

I want to thank God for averting death over my life. It all started precisely on March 7th, 2018. I had a surgery in LASUTH and after the surgery I had sepsis, after which I had kidney infection. I was transfused with 15 pints of blood. I had 5 rounds of dialysis and at the end I was confined to a wheel chair for one month but here I am this morning alive. I want to thank my father in the Lord, Pastor Ola Olukoyede, the covenant of life in this church worked for me. I want to say thank you to mummy Olukoyede as well (my one in a million mummy), to every minister and worker and member that stood in the gap for me. I return all the gory unto the Lord!

I am testifying in fulfilment of the vow I made to God concerning my health. Two years ago, I felt a sharp pain in my left breast and because of the awareness of breast cancer; I went to the hospital for a check up. After thorough examinations by the doctor, I was asked to go for a breast scan, the result came out negative but I was still feeling the pains. I went to another hospital and the same result was given to me – negative. Few days after, the pain stopped. In March, 2018, the pain resurfaced and this time around it extended a bit below my breast. The doctor felt it was an infection and I was prescribed some antibiotics after which the pain stopped. The pain resurfaced and it came in a different dimension, I was having burning sensation all around my right breast and the pain extended to my abdomen and back, after a while it stopped. In August, the pain came back and it was hurting me badly, it still extended to my back, neck and sometimes, my heart. I purposed in my heart that I was going to anoint my breast on the thanksgiving Sunday. On that day, pastor instructed that we anointed ourselves, I stylishly anointed my breast after anointing my head, I made a vow that if I should go to the hospital again and nothing was found to be wrong with me, I would come to testify. The following Monday, while I was returning from the office, the pains began and it seized my heart, I started palpitating and in few seconds it went to my brain. On seeing the doctor the next morning, I was told to go for about five tests which cost about 24,000 naira each. While my breast was being scanned, I made another vow again that if I came out clean I would give God a certain amount of money. All the tests came out negative and since the day after the test I discovered that I am ok. Hence, I have come to return all the glory to the Almighty God! Praise the Lord!
I want to thank God of Daddy Adeboye and Olukoyede, I came all the way from the middle belt to attend the August Breakthrough and Deliverance Service and when I was coming, I asked God to grant me the opportunity to see Daddy Olukoyede. At the end of the service, pastor announced that those who wanted to see him for peculiar cases should just stand up and I stood up and the problem that brought me to Lagos was solved! The problem actually started when I offered to help a young girl who had nine children and was suffering. I brought her home, bought her clothes and fed her. I suddenly noticed that she started tormenting my family, she would cut my clothes and money into pieces. I asked her one day why she was doing all that and she said she did not know too. My son visited us one day and saw her cutting 500 naira notes into pieces and immediately my son developed an headache while I also started stooling alongside everyone in the house. I started fasting and praying and I called her again to ask her what our offence was and she replied ‘they say make I dey suffer una’ meaning ‘I have been asked to torment you.’ I returned her to where I picked her after calling some pastors to pray for her. However, I kept on stooling form July to August ending it was so bad I couldn’t stand on my feet until I came last August and from the church, the stooling stopped. Praise the Lord!

EVIL DREAM CANCELLED
Sometimes last month, I had a terrible dream; I dreamt that a group of people poured sand on me. I prayed against it alongside one of my pastors but I was unsatisfied. After the prayers I spent about a week praying at the redemption camp as well and the word I got from God was – not even the grave has the guts to hold me captive. On my return, I attended a friend’s church. As soon as the pastor saw me, He called me by my full name and said that a group of people had conspired to take my corpse to the village. I was shocked, because I never met this pastor before. I continued praying in my heart but I was afraid and God kept reminding me that not even the grave could hold me captive. I held on to this word and during the August BDS, while the prayer warriors were having their usual meeting, the man of God mentioned my case again, but I was not bold enough to come out. However I met him after the vigil and he prayed with me. Immediately, the thoughts of death left me. I want to thank God that I am privileged to see today and by the grace of God as the Lord lives, not even the grave will hold me captive in Jesus name.

I am here to give thanks to God for what He has done in my life. It started the Friday after our WOW programme. I have been trusting God for a particular job for about three years now and I remember God told me to be calm about two years ago and that when the time comes I would get it. Some of my friends kept encouraging me telling me not to despise the days of little beginning so I kept trusting God. This year, about three of us in our office got an invite for an assessment from the same firm but I resolved not to go since it won’t be proper for three of us to leave the firm we were working for at the same time. Two days later, I got another invite from the same firm, I did not even apply for this one, it came via LinkedIn so I knew God was about to do something. I sent in my CV, sat for the test and was later invited for the interview. I kept awaiting a response and about three weeks later, I got a call to come pick my offer letter and I was so amazed and this could only be God, I have come to give God back all the praise. Praise the Lord.
I want to encourage young ones in the church to always key into the prayers led our daddy Olukoyede. I had a friend who knows me fairly well but I had never been to his house neither had he been to mine. About three weeks ago, he called me and said, ‘I have been seeing you riding in an old Mercedes Benzes car’, I said ‘yes because I am old myself and the car has never given me problems and it takes me where I am going.’ He said okay and gave me a date not to leave the house because he was coming to visit me. I stayed and when he arrived, I did not believe what my eyes saw – a brand new car! I remember before this time that pastor asked us to pray for something money could not buy. My friend told me to keep mute but I told him I cannot be quiet over what God has done for me. Praise the Lord!
