…The first time I heard about the Ruth and Boaz Fellowship was in October so I came. And 2015 was a major turnaround for me. A lot of things happened, like you just wake up and the lights were switched off. I was thrown into the wilderness, and I was there and tried to come out but it just was not happening.
2016, things started turning around for the better. So when I came for Ruth and Boaz, Pastor said, “Those of you that have been given names that are not your own, God is going to change your story.” And God is indeed working and changing my story.
I want to give this testimony to the glory of God and shame of the devil.
When my first child was barely two years old, my husband walked out on us. I was left with the sole responsibility of raising my daughter. It was not easy as a single parent and I had to take care of her medicals, clothing, feeding and school fees all alone without any spouse to support me.
With God’s help I paid her school fees from kindergarten up to her junior secondary school year 1 (JSS 1). Then I got stuck. I couldn’t afford to pay her fees anymore. I didn’t know where to turn to for ...

When I hear people commit suicide or end up in psychiatric home, l always praise God and appreciate His Goodness in my life.
When you see people on social media, at parties or wherever all dressed up, you don't know the battle they are fighting every day. We assume all is well; we even judge them ...
At the last Ruth and Boaz fellowship conference, I was here to give a testimony about my son who I was told was lost for 3 days and was later found. You see, I couldn’t have custody of this my son from my husband.
I came to this meeting dejected. There was no hope, no help from anywhere. When I lost my job few years ago, I became idle and let me tell you, poverty is the first born of idleness. I was very poor! But one thing kept me going and that is the Word of God. One day, someone saw me at the Dorcas department (helps ministry of Fountain of Life church) and was very surprised at my state.
