I recall vividly around 8.00pm on April 30, 2003 at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria, when some nurses and a consultant signaled to me to come into the delivery room to behold a gift from God. A boy very big from day 1 smiled into life. From that day on, Majesty Efosa has been a source of Joy to the family. Glory be to God. Power Osaretin’s story is more dramatic. His mother had just concluded her Masters Degree examinations at the University of Ibadan on 18th May 2006. Because she was still having some days to relax before delivery date, and also considering the exam stress, I took her to UCH to rest for some days. Meanwhile, I had two major functions for Saturday 20th May 2006: As the national pastor for training and manpower development Living Spring Chapel International, I had some training sessions with some ministers in a certificate course. I also had 20 books to review that day in a book launch in honour of Rev. Oniya. When I was through with the day’s hectic job, I decided to go to University College Hospital to visit Sharon Baby. It was on my way to the hospital, in company of some pastoral assistants that we received a call from madam herself that POWER had been born some fews earlier!. His first few years were challenging but God has used his life to demonstrate that POWER PASS POWER
As Majesty Ighile stood today (around 10.00am) before a congregation of more than 2, 000 adults at the Redeemer’s University Chapel to recite two poems composed by him and his brother, Power, all I could say was “Thank you, Jesus”.
As if that was not enough, later in the evening, precisely between 4.00pm and 6.30 pm, a professionally co-ordinated birthday party for Majesty and Power took place in our residence at the Redemption Camp. And about a hundred people made up of mostly children and some adults graced the occasion.
Father, you have started well with YOUR children, lead them to old age in Jesus Name.
