Two of my most fulfiling days so far in 2016 were January 25 and 26. These were the days i ministered at Faith Arrena, the global headquarters of Church of God Mission International. I ministered on Lord, Lead Me & Dealing with the Adversaries of our Open Doors. Glory be to God.

For 22 years running, since 1993, to be exact, when i started relating with Pastor Femi Emmanuel, as Head of Publications, Livingspring Chapel International till date, that i enjoy the privilege of working with Archbishop Margaret Idahosa, both as management staff of Benson Idahosa University, where she is Chancellor, and as Governing Board member of Above Only Press, the Publishing organ of Church of God Mission International, it has been a case of sharing July with my highly -rated mentors. Pastor Emmanuel's birthday is 2nd, Archbishop Idahosa is 29th. But perhaps, most dramatic, is that of Pastor Mrs. Folu Adeboye, who i also enjoyed the grace of relating with, for more than eight years, in various capacities, such as being the pioneer coordinator of the Department of Christian Religious Studies Redeemer' University, Associate Chaplain of Redeemer's University, Editorial board member of The Trainers Magazine of RCBC and an External Examiner to the School of Post Graduate Studies of the Redeemed Christian Bible College. I share the same day, July 13, with her. Just as i do with the Nobel Prize Winner for Literature, Professor Wole Soyinka. I recall that in Ibadan, in the 1990s, just as it is happening in Benin now, during the last Sundays of July, Pastor Emmanuel, myself and others, would dance to the pulpit to thank God for the gift of life. What a glory to share the same birthday and birthmonth with your mentors.

I bless God for July. And this is quite personal. So please, generate a tenderness for my indulgence. To begin with, i was born on the 13th day of the month. On the 8th of July, 2000, i got married to my damsel of invaluable relevance. Then came July 13, 2008. A birthday that co-incided with the formal inauguration of our ministry, Scripture Communication Network. This teaching, training, leadership and publication ministry has birthed other arms such as Strategic Leadership Academy, The Mentoring Institute, The Home Institute and LeaderSpeak Magazine. Glory be to God.

The month, April, came with a pack of landmark testimonies. It started with Sharon Ighile's appointment as Ag. Head, Central Branding Unit, Global Office, CGMI. Then came my research exploits on Re-inventing Oral Narrative Cuiture in Nigeria. My appointment as Governing Board Member, Above Only Press is another breakthrough. And then came April 30, Majesty's birthday co-inciding with the successful Ph.D defense date of a twin brother in the Lord, a ministry partner and close friend, Dr. Stephen Dauda. Glory, Glory be to God for every testimony shared.
