God is truly amazing in His capacity to love, care and lead us in every aspect of our lives. My children and I are living-proof of His ever-increasing faithfulness and love. Since my husband’s passing on to glory in April, 2004, the children and I have been experiencing God’s divine presence and power in all areas of our lives. He has led us daily, and our lives have only gotten better and better as each day passes. Every new day has always been better than the previous days. “RUTH & BOAZ FELLOWSHIP” has being one of the most influential avenues the Lord has used to reach out to me in various aspects of my life and this daily transformation of God’s glory opened the door for us to “Relocate to United Kingdom” a few months ago. My contact with Ruth & Boaz Fellowship was divinely orchestrated by God. Having attended this maiden edition, I kept doing everything possible to make myself available for every meeting and the Lord never failed to reach out to me through Pastor Taiwo’s messages of encouragement and hope in what God can do in a life that appears dim and hopeless.
A hungry desire for the knowledge of God made me to get out of my regular routine and seek a change of environment. Life in Lagos became choked up with so many activities and this led me to consider the idea of relocation. I went ahead and made application for relocation to London with my children but things kept going wrong. There were so many obstacles and distractions and I thought maybe it was not meant to be. At the verge of my giving up, another meeting of Ruth & Boaz Fellowship came up, and during his ministration, Pastor Taiwo laid emphasis on “ONE MORE REASON TO GO ON”.
This message was a booster to my faith. It was the right word I needed to hear at that point in time. I then made up my mind that I will not allow the obstacles to distract me but follow-up on this door that the Lord was about to open. The moment I made that decision, things began to work in our favour. God began to arise on our behalf and despite all obstacles and distractions, the Lord worked it out and my kids and I were granted the necessary visas to the United Kingdom. The demonstration of practical love and care exhibited by Nigeria for UK, I met one of the executives of the fellowship after one of the fellowship meetings and I shared with her my experiences in the past few months. On hearing the good news of our relocation, the sister took me to the Pastor in charge of Ruth & Boaz Fellowship so that she could pray with me. After praying with me, she took my contact number in the UK and also booked an appointment on my behalf to see Pastor Taiwo. I came with my kids, Pastor Taiwo laid hands on us and prayed. He did not stop at blessing us spiritually, he also blessed us financially.
Even though we have left Nigeria, the fellowship has not left us. Our Fellowship coordinator has been in constant touch with us in UK and despite her tight schedule, whenever she comes into UK, she will always make time for us to meet and have fellowship together.
Our settlement here in UK is another bundle of testimonies all together. The Lord went before us and prepared the place for our arrival such that we did not experience any of the difficulties common to relocation and settlement in UK. Things were falling into place for us. The climax of my testimony is God’s revelation of His “assignment” for my life. I discovered that God pulled me out of Lagos, striped me of all forms of activities and commitments and brought me to where I am left with little or no choice than to remain in His presence. I have not had such a wonderful time in His presence as I have had since I have been here. What I have been struggling to do before now in His presence, now comes naturally to me and I am beginning to experience God again in a new dimension entirely. For me, this is the beginning of the journey to the place of His greater glory.
