I am finding it hard to remember things these days. I don't know why it is happening, I spend time trying to recollect the memories of an experience or event I have been through.
Our lives are filled with beautiful moments, times we will always look back on and smile. Experience we will love to tell the stories million times if necessary.
I am not a celebrity freak but I am very fond of some men of God and I would go extra miles just to have a physical encounter with them. I could remember how I went for Reinhard Bonnke crusade along Ibadan express way despite feelings sick just to have an experience.
I had a particular experience as a child which I can't forget. It was one of the beautiful moments of my life. Funny enough I had to confirm the year from mummy because I am poor at tracking dates.
In 2004, I was an RCCG member. My family attended "The Redeem Christian Church of God". Pastor E. A Adeboye is one of my spiritual mentor today but it didn't just start now.
I started having so much interest in the man of God as a child. Daddy is fond of calling people who wants to give their life to Christ after ministration.
On this fateful day I went out, it was my first time but I have been a Christian all my life. I had a different mission but I kept it to myself.
We do attend the Camp program such as Holy ghost congress and the Convention. Mom was an usher so we don’t miss it the camp programs.
After Daddy made the call of people who wants to give their life to christ, i left my group and headed straight to the alter. It was the old camp ground, it was just a field then big enough to contain hundreds of thousands.
It was trip going to the Alter because we were sitting close to the end of Camp ground.
I moved as fast as I could but remember I had a mission. On getting there, we had to maintain several queues.
Many pastors were lined up, anointing and praying for people. I joined the queue but started acting like a child which I was but didn't like it when referred to as one.
I started giving people my spot on the queue because of my mission. I wanted to be anointed by Daddy Adeboye himself.
Finally I got the opportunity, a cheetah wouldn't have caught me with the way I sprinted so that another person wouldn't steal my moment.
He placed his hand on me and I wish I could capture the moment as an image. I was showing on every screen because the camera was focused on daddy. After praying, he gave me a Bible.
It was emotional for me as a kid, I cried back to my seat which I couldn't even find. The camp was so big and crowded that I couldn't recognize where I was coming from. Several large portion of the camp were labeled with Alphabet in case you miss your way. A family took me in and took care of me over the night before I returned to my group in the morning.
Mom laughed at me because she saw it clearly. I was crying while sharing the experience with my group and every one laughed really hard at me.
It was a dream come true for me.
