Just like the biblical day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles in the upper room, members and guests present at the full gospel businessmen and women fellowship received the baptism of fire brought about by thought-provoking speeches and revelations they heard from various speakers on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at the upper chamber of Tantalizers, a quick service restaurant along Ojodu Road, Lagos during the gathering of the South West District 3, Zone 12 Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship.
The convergence was in celebration of the progress made by the group in winning more souls through the programme tagged, Family Advance. During the first lesson, Jude Elue, a pharmacist and director of sales and marketing at Pharmacy Plus Limited explained the importance of nutrition in relevance to health. At the conclusion of his lecture, Agnes Elue, his wife and also a pharmacist, answered questions on the topic treated by her husband and then led a prayer session to round up the segment.
In the same vein, Patience Eworo, national coordinator for Womb of Intercession International Fellowship mounted the rostrum to talk about Marriage and Home. Using her life experiences to drive home her point, Eworo explained that peace is the most important gift that God gave to human beings and this is what the devil tries every now and then to steal from people by throwing obstacles on their way. In the course of her discussion, she narrated how she once became frustrated up to the point of contemplating suicide after exploring all avenues to no avail in order to have children. But today, the story is totally different because she is now blessed with children.
Naomi Obazee, wife of the Supervising National Director and Chairperson of women in the fellowship explained that impatience is not just an attitude but a powerful spirit terminating human lives on a daily basis. She therefore summoned the gathering to a prayer session to cast out the demon of impatience.
Marchus Thomas, a superintendent and the divisional police officer, DPO, in charge of Ojodu Police Station also seized the occasion to explain to members of the fellowship why it is necessary for them to cooperate with the police in order to ensure security in the society. The programme peaked into a session where the attendees were given access to free medical services ranging from blood pressure test to eye test and blood sugar test among other tests provided freely by medical practitioners who are members of the fellowship.
