Kidnappers write to lagos school

There is palpable fear at the Lagos State Model College, Kankon, Badagry, as kidnappers have threatened to abduct some pupils and staff members of the school.

It was learnt that the kidnappers sent two letters of the same content to the junior and senior sections of the college respectively.

This is just as the daughter of a councillorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Odi Olowo Local Council Development Association, Ilupeju, Bode Adeosun, was reportedly abducted.

Punch Metro gathered yesterday that that the letters sent to Kankon were posted on the corridors leading to the offices of the two principals.


In the letters sighted by Punch correspondent, the kidnappers claimed responsibility for the abduction of six pupils of the Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, who had spent 28 days in captivity.

They vowed to abduct six pupils from Kankon, as well as the two principals of the college, boasting that nothing could stop them.

A copy of the letters read, "Kidnappers are visiting the school the same way we did at Igbonla, Epe. We are going to capture three pupils from senior school and three from junior school. We are kidnapping both principals.

"We are coming in two days' time. No security put in place will stop us from gaining entry and fulfilling our mission as stated in this letter. Be expecting us!"

Policemen and soldiers were said to have been deployed in the school.

However, when the ultimatum given by the suspects elapsed, the security presence around the school reportedly reduced, which caused panic.

Some parents, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they had initially wanted to keep the threat secret, but decided otherwise due to the reduction in the number of operatives manning the school.

One of the parents said he had visited his ailing son, who is in Junior Secondary School, on Saturday, June 10, when he saw one of the letters.

"As I was passing by the principal's office, I saw a notice and stopped to read it. I was shocked when I read the content. The principal was not around at that time, but I alerted some staff members present.

"I informed the Parents Forum Association chairman, who contacted the school authorities. The government and security agencies had also been informed.

"A large number of policemen and soldiers were initially deployed in the school. There were also security vans patrolling the school surroundings.

"But when I went back four days after, the number of security men had reduced considerably. I saw only two policemen at the school gate."

Another parent said he was at the school on Wednesday (yesterday) to assess the security situation, but was disappointed, urging the government to take the threat seriously.

He also lamented that the school fence was very low while there were bushes at the back of the premises, which could be exploited by the hoodlums.

He said, "Part of the bushes had been cleared upon the threat, but there are still a lot to be done. The school fence needs to be raised. There should be light around the fence for safety at night."

A parent called for massive security around the school, saying some insiders could be aiding the hoodlums.

"There is a Nigerian Air Force base near the school; the threat should not be taken for granted," she added.

The PFA Chairman, Mr. Wale Alo, said the case was reported at the Akpa Police Post and Area K Command, Badagry.

He said, "We have been trying to beef up security. The state government sent policemen and military personnel. The school also employed some vigilantes to secure the school, especially at night. I learnt that the deputy governor is aware. Although the handwriting on the letters looks like that of a child, the content is beyond any pupil's reasoning. The school is a little bit far from the waterside, but we must not leave anything to chance."

A member of staff of the college, who begged not to be named, said security was required in the school.

He said, "It was the junior school that got the letter first. After three days, the same letter was dropped at the senior school. The school employed local vigilantes after the letter was received. They left after some days, saying the government did not appreciate their effort. They said if anything happened to them in the course of protecting the school, they could be abandoned.

"These vigilantes are the ones really doing the work. In the middle of the night, they were around the hostels, hiding in the bush. Presently, two policemen are on duty per shift. Once it is 11pm, they go to sleep. However, five policemen patrol the road leading to the school every day."

The school authorities, however, described the letters as a rumour.

One of the two principals, Mr. Sunday Fadaunsi, said, "We regard the letters as a rumour. Parents and pupils have been circulating it, but nobody can come up with any letter."

When asked about the security measures put in place in the school, he said, "the deputy governor is handling that."

The Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, said the government was aware of the letter, adding that the security of the school, pupils and staff was guaranteed.

He said, "We are aware and the security agencies are on high alert and alive to their responsibility. Whether it is a threat or a prank, the Lagos State Government will not yield any of its schools or pupils to the evil machinations of kidnappers. We shall secure our schools and every pupil and tutor. The police and other security agencies are up to the task. This is an assurance to the Model College, Kankon, and the general public."



The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the police had beefed up security in the school and other colleges in the coastal areas of the state.

"There is intelligence report that these people (kidnappers) may perpetrate criminal acts at model colleges. The police are using proactive measures to fortify the schools, including Kankon, to prevent what happened in model college, Igbonla.

"The Area Commander, Area K, said there is an adequate police presence at the school and there was no cause for alarm."

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE

Open Heavens 22 June 2017: Thursday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye-Who is behind this roadblock?

Memorise:
Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. Psalm 26:2

Read: Numbers 22:22-31 (KJV)
22:22 And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

22:23 And the ass saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

22:24 But the angel of the Lord stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

22:25 And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again.

22:26 And the angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

22:27 And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.

22:28 And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

22:29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

22:30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? and he said, Nay.

22:31 Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

Bible in one year:
Judges 15-16,
Jeremiah 51:27-44, Hymn: Sing hymn 4

MESSAGE
"Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him."

The above scripture is one of those very popular passages in the Psalms. When a baby Christian hears it, he will say "Amen!" Some adult Christians have even turned it into a song. A mature believer in Christ, I mean a real bone-cracker, will however react differently. When he or she hears this passage being quoted, the first thing he or she will do is to carry out a brief self-examination and introspectively ask: "I hope I am not one of these enemies?" In other words, he is not in a hurry to say amen. In 2nd Samuel 12:1-7, after Prophet Nathan told King David the story of an oppressive act committed in his kingdom, the king rose up in fury and decreed, "That fellow must die." Then the prophet replied, "You are the man, O king." Be very careful how you judge others because Matthew 7:2 says,

"For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."

If only some people were merciful while judging others, they too would have been shown mercy when they were going through their own judgement.

Beloved, before you cry to God to arise and let His enemies be scattered, first find out if you are not that enemy. Have you even tried to find out whether God is the one fighting you? In today's Bible reading, God had told Prophet Balaam not to go and curse His people. Nevertheless, when Balak invited him to curse the children of Israel and promised him a lot of money, he disobeyed God. God therefore sent an angel to block his way. The donkey he rode on saw the angel and stopped, but because his own eyes were blinded by covetousness, he could not see the angel. What will you do if you find yourself in this scenario? You perceive something is blocking your way but you do not know what exactly it is, and you say, "You demon standing between me and my destiny, move!" You get a response saying, "I am not a demon but an angel." You then insist and say, "No problem, whatever you are, move out of my way!" He then asks, "In whose name?" You say "In the Name of Jesus Christ", and the response is, "Oh, He is the One who asked me to block your way!" What would you do? Today, many people are busy fighting non-existent forces of darkness that they believe are blocking their way. Go back to God and find out who is really blocking your way in order to pray correctly.

Key Point
Many children of God are doing God's work their own way and refusing to do it God's way. God is therefore grinding them to a halt!

Less educational privilege

Education research clearly shows that students who are
left to struggle in problem solving with limited help from a
teacher or parent, perform better on subsequent tests than
students whose teachers help them to arrive at the right
answers.
As parents, we need to encourage our children to think.
 Ask your child questions that help you ascertain their 

Reminisce of Cultural day and Vocation day

Yes it is actually the Reminisce 

May be three years ago or four years but can't really recall 




And now the boys have become young adults 



And some of them already in secondary schools 



What a sweet memory.. 



Beloved Good Monday morning

Beloved good morning,

As you go out this Morning, Every contrary wind blowing against your progress and success in life, God will rebuke them and you shall experience a great calm. Any prayer that will not let you reach your goals, God will not answer it. May the presence of the Almighty God accompanied you to everywhere you go today.God of Abraham will Answer you when you call. He will close the mouth of every lion roaring against your success. He will open the windows of Heaven to rain down Blessings upon you. The Lord will place you where Favour will locate you and anything your hand touches shall Prosper in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

It's a rumour

The Federal Ministry of Education has debunked reports that Christian Religious Knowledge, CRK, has been removed as a subject of study from the curriculum of public secondary schools in Nigeria while Islamic Religious Studies, IRS, has been reintroduced.
Debunking the report, Director of Press, Federal Ministry of Education, Mrs. Chinenye Ihuoma, pointed out that the ministry had designed a new subject which merged Civic Education, IRS, CRK and Social Studies into "Religion and National Values."
Mrs. Ihuoma told reporters that, "The alternation is not from the minister, this is purely from the National Council on Education. It is just as the council has said that History should be a subject of its own at the basic level in the first nine years.
"Now, a new subject has been introduced, called Religion and National Values. It is a fusion of religion and civics.
"I have not seen the details but in a case where you have subject combinations in the same period, everyone will attend lectures that correspond with their own religion.
"Arabic and Islamic Studies are not standing alone. Islamic Religious Study and Christian Religious Study as well as national values will be taught under a new subject."

THEME: EVANGELISM: BE MORE PROACTIVE

Memorise:

Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: Proverbs 24:3

Read: Acts 5:12-16

5:12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.

5:13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.

5:14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women)

5:15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.

5:16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

MESSAGE

Soul winning can trigger the miraculous, as seen in the lives of the apostles. If you really want signs and wonders to attend to your life and ministry, you must be prepared to declare Jesus Christ at every opportunity you have, and if you lack such opportunities, you must be prepared to create them. In our Bible reading for today, it is recorded that through the hands of the apostles, several miracles were performed. This was a generic statement affecting all the apostles because they were all preaching the word of God (Acts 5:12). After this generic statement was made, Peter was singled out. Concerning him, it was said that he did not need to lay hands before miracles took place; rather, even his shadow was conducting deliverance and healing services while he was busy moving from place to place. Why was this so? How did Peter excel in signs and wonders? lt was because he took advantage of every opportunity he had to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. He could face any crowd and declare his faith in Jesus Christ to them (See Acts 2 & Acts 3). God saw this attitude and was quite impressed, and He said, ''Since you are unstoppable in declaring My word, signs and wonders will never cease in your life."

Can you take the act of witnessing to such limits as you have never been before? In various life endeavours, several Christians plan, set goals and targets, and come up with strategies to accomplish them, but when it comes to soul-winning they don't do any of these. As a marketer, you devise plans on how to reach out to a larger segment of the market and on how to get a larger market share for your products. That is how it should be for soul-winning too. What is your plan or strategy for winning more souls to Christ this year? For many individuals, couples or families, there is no plan for evangelism. No specific number of converts is being targeted daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. Due to this lack of planning, some people cannot boast of five converts in 12 months. What a shame! Several opportunities that God gave us to win souls have been lost to lack of planning. If you set a monthly target of winning 20 souls, you will take every opportunity that comes your way more seriously and exploit them in order to achieve your target. Success in evangelism can never be attained without a plan. Repent today and become more proactive in evangelism. Come up with a plan for the year and prayerfully pursue it. It shall be achieved in Jesus' Name.

Action Point:

Draw up a one-year evangelism plan stating the number of souls to be won daily, weekly and monthly, and prayerfully execute it.

Men My Childhood

FULL TEXT OF PROSTATE HEALTH AWARENESS LECTURE PRESENTED AT MEETING OF FGBMFI (NORTH-GATE CHAPTER)

 

MEN - MY CHILDHOOD; MY MANHOOD; MY PROSTATE.

MUST READ!!

 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

I am here to speak with you on Prostate.

The topic is misleading.

 

Is Prostate strictly for Men?

Yes, ONLY men have prostate and ONLY men over 40years but the healthcare enlightenment is for everyone. There is no woman who does not know a man 40 years and above – Father, Uncle, Brother, Son, Friend, Neighbor, Colleague …

 

Essentially what I will be doing today is health promotion. Responsible health promotion must provide three things:

 

1. Information

2. Reassurance

3. A Plan of Action.

 

Let me start with a background on Prostate Health.

Everyone has a pair of kidneys. The job of the kidney is to remove waste. It is the LAWMA (waste management company) of your body. Everyday your blood passes through the kidney several times to be filtered. As the blood is filtered, urine is formed and stored in a temporary storage tank called the urinary bladder.

 

If there were to be no urinary bladder, as a man walks on the road, urine will be dropping.

Now think of the plumbing work in your house. Think of the urinary bladder as the overhead storage tank. From the storage tank, a good plumber will run pipes to other parts of the house, including the kitchen. God in His wisdom ran pipes from our urinary bladder to the tip of the penis. The pipe is called the urethra. Just below the bladder and surrounding the urethra is a little organ called the prostate gland.

 

The prostate gland is the size of a walnut and weighs about 20grams. Its job is to make the seminal fluid which is stored in the seminal vesicle. During sexual intercourse, seminal fluid comes down the urethra and mixes with the sperms produced in the testicles to form the semen. So semen technically is not sperm. It is sperm + seminal fluid. The seminal fluid lubricates the sperm.

 

After age 40, for reasons that may be hormonal, the prostate gland begins to enlarge. From 20 grams it may grow to almost 100 grams. As it enlarges, it squeezes the urethra and the man begins to notice changes in the way he urinate.

 

If you have a son under 10, if he has a little mischief like we all did at that age, when he comes out to urinate, he can target the ceiling and the jet will hit target. Call his father to do same, wahala dey. His urine stream is weak, cannot travel a long distance and sometimes may come straight down on his legs. So he may need to stand in awkward position to urinate.

 

Not many men will be worried their urine stream cannot hit the ceiling. Toilets are on the floor and not on the ceiling. But other symptoms begin to show.

 

TERMINAL DRIPPLING:

The man begins to notice that after urinating and repacking, urine still drops on his pants. This is the reason why after an older man urinates, he has to ring bell. A younger man simply delivers to the last drop and walks away. Just see an older man coming from the bathroom. Sometimes he may clutch the newspaper closely to hide the urine stains, particularly on plain colored trousers.

 

HESISTANCY

At this point you wait longer for the urine flow to start. There are 2 valves that must open for you to urinate – the internal and external sphincters. Both open but because of obstructions in the urethra, you wait long for the flow to start.

 

INCOMPLETE EMPTYING

You have this feeling immediately after urinating that there is still something left.

 

As all these things happen, the bladder begins to work harder to compensate for the obstruction in the urethra. The frequency of urination goes up. Urgency sets in. sometimes you have to practically run into the toilet. Nocturia also becomes common. You wake up more than 2 times at night to urinate. Your wife begins to complain.

 

Men being men may not talk to anyone even at this point. Then the more serious complications start.

Stored urine gets infected and there may be burning sensation when urinating.

 

Stored urine forms crystals. Crystals come together to form stone either in the bladder or in the kidney. Stones may block the urethra.

Chronic urinary retention sets in. The bladder stores more and more urine. The size of the bladder is 40 - 60 cl. A bottle of coke is 50cl. As the bladder stores more urine it can enlarge up to 300cl. An overfilled bladder may leak and this leads to wetting / urinary incontinence. Also the volume may put pressure on the kidney and may lead to kidney damage.

What may likely bring the man to hospital is acute urinary retention. He wakes up one day and he is not able to pass urine.

 

Everything I have described above is associated with prostate enlargement, technically called benign prostate hyperplasia.

 

There are other diseases of the prostate like:

 

1. Prostatitis – inflammation of the prostate

2. Prostate cancer – cancer of the prostate.

 

This discussion is on prostate enlargement.

 

I have bad news and good news.

 

The bad news is that every man will have prostate enlargement if he lives long enough.

The good news is that there are life style changes that can help the man after 40 to maintain optimum prostate health.

 

Nutrition

Look at what you eat. 33% of all cancers, according to the US National Cancer Institute is related to what we eat.

Red meat everyday triples your chances of prostate disease. Milk everyday doubles your risk. Not taking fruits / vegetables daily quadruples your risk.

 

Tomatoes are very good for men. If that is the only thing your wife can present in the evening, eat it with joy. It has loads of lycopene. Lycopene is the most potent natural antioxidant.

Foods that are rich in zinc are also good for men. We recommend pumpkin seeds (ugbogulu).

Zinc is about the most essential element for male sexuality and fertility.

 

Men need more zinc than women. Every time a man ejaculates he loses 15mg of zinc. Zinc is also important for alcohol metabolism. Your liver needs zinc to metabolize alcohol.

 

ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION

As men begin to have urinary symptoms associated with prostate enlargement, it is important they look at alcohol consumption. More fluid in means more fluid out.

 

Drink less. Drink slowly.

 

EXERCISE

Exercise helps build the muscle tone. Every man should exercise. Men over 40 should avoid high impact exercise like jogging. It puts pressure on the knees. Cycling is bad news for the prostate. We recommend brisk walking.

 

SITTING

When we sit, two-third of our weight rests on the pelvic bones. Men who sit longer are more prone to prostate symptoms. Do not sit for long hours. Walk around as often as you can. Sit on comfortable chairs. We recommend a divided saddle chair if you must sit long hours.

 

DRESSING

Men should avoid tight underwear. It impacts circulation around the groin and heats it up a bit. While the physiological temperature is 37 degrees, the groin has an optimal temperature of about 33 degrees. Pant is a no - no for men. Wear boxers.  Wear breathable clothing.

 

SMOKING

Avoid smoking. It affects blood vessels and impact circulation around the groin.

 

SEX

Regular sex is good for the prostate.

 

Celibates are more prone to prostate illness. While celibacy is a moral decision, it is not a biological adaptation. Your prostate gland is designed to empty its contents regularly.

 

Thought: when someone share something of value with you and you benefit from it. You have a moral obligation to share it with others because someone in your friends list might be saved.

Latest scam please be careful when you receive strange call

Parents,

Good morning, I received a call from someone claiming to be one of the teachers at my child's school informing me that my child had fallen on the stairs in school and had a broken leg. The teacher claimed to be calling from life link Hospital where the child had been rushed to and required urgent attention as she was bleeding profusely. I was asked to urgently send 200k so the child could be attended to. When I informed the caller that i have a medical card and that would go to the hospital, the caller said that time was of the essence as the child needed urgent medical intervention, before it was too late. The "teacher" handed the phone to a "doctor" who confirmed to me that the best thing was to send the money urgently to enable them commence treatment. I was ready to go to the hospital. However, i asked a final question: "What is the name of the child?", upon which the caller immediately disconnected the call.

When i narrated this incident to another colleague, he told me that a friend of his was actually conned in the same way and she parted with 300k

To avoid being a victim:

1.   Remain calm.

2.   Ask them to tell you either the name of the child, or the name of the school and class/stream the child is in.

I thought I should share this with all of you, especially those of you who have school going kids, so you can be extra careful when handling strange calls. Please also advise your family and friends to be cautious.

Happy Birthday Caroline Emmanuel

Save Our Husband

SAVE OUR HUSBANDS!

Why do husbands in Africa die most times before wives? A husband in Africa in most cases is under intense tension because he is responsible for:

Children school fees
House rents
Electricity bills
Medical bills
Generator fuel & repairs
Car fuel and repairs
Feeding of family
Clothes for children
Xmas and New year bills
Furniture &House maint
In-laws wahala/demand
His own aged parents
His siblings most times
His wife's demands
Vigilante bills
Erecting Building
Religious demands
Family social bills
Electronics bills
Recharge cards
Extended family bills
Community demands

On top of the above, he also faces:

Wife stress/insults
Boss stress at work
Police stress on the way
Area boys stress
Kidnappers fear
Friends stress
Economy stress
Fear of job loss
Unemployment pains
Armed Robbery stress
Children misbehaviour
Neighbours stress
Bank loan paymnt stress
Witchcraft stress
Demonic attack stress
Sex stress
....and so on! OMG!!

Are these reasons not enough for all African Wives to understand and give their husbands peace at home? Are men not trying? How can an African man with this kind of load be romantic like an American man? Women, please give your husband peace at home. Encourage your husband. Stop being sarcastic to him. Except if you like to join the widows club early! Note:
That club is not funny. Ask members. Help your husband. Contribute to the family. Be a helper. Be submissive. Stop nagging. Build your home and marriage. It is not greener outside there. Don't be deceived!!
Let our men and husbands live long like you. Men dey beg una😃

FORWARD THIS TO EVERY WOMAN IN YOUR CONTACT LIST UNTIL EVERY WOMAN IN AFRICA READS IT. LET US PROLONG THE LIVES OF OUR MEN!!

He Paid For His Lateness

DIVINE MANNA EPISODE 56.

TOPIC:- HE PAY FOR HIS LATENESS.

READ:- John 11

Then, Mathar (Marry sister ) went and meet him challenging him that, "had it been you are here earlier my brother would not have died..." but what happen? Mathar left him there Sorrowfully.

Beloved! Irrespective of any difficulties you are passing through now, just have faith and patiently wait on God. Never get compromised. In as much as you know your God, irrespective of how long he is late he will always Come to your aid.

God knows those that are His. Even the word of God says "Heaven and Earth will pass away but none of my word will ever pass away" irrespective of how long God seem to be late, just hold unto your faith in Him and you will eventually experience His manifestation and performance.

Considering that passage above. Can you see the misery their ? When Jesus heard that Lazarus was sick what did He do? He tarried still in the same place for two good day and the Bible "Jesus love them" WHEN GOD SEEMS TO BE LATE. Look at it again, even when Jesus comes closer. When Jesus was in Bethany He still tarried their for a while knowing fully well that Lazarus had been laid in the graveyard for four days WHEN GOD SEEMS TO BE LATE.

Their, Mathar (Mary Sis) went and meet him challenging him that, "had it been you are here earlier my brother would not have died..." but what happen? Mathar left him their. Sorry what would have happen under normal circumstances? He(Jesus) would have run after her that where is he? take me there? isn't it? But do you know that He still tarried their WHEN GOD SEEMS TO BE LATE.

Now when Jesus came to the grave and went in, the Bible recorded it that "and he that was dead came back to life" what a misery WHEN GOD SEEMS TO BE LATE.

One thing is needed to face that agony you are passing through "Faith" Lets have faith in God. if you check that passage. Check vs 40, Jesus said "...if thou wouldest believe thou shouldest see the glory of God" Meaning that. if you have faith in him, eventually after faith is manifestation and performance.

Beloved, lets have Faith in God, I mean unwavering Faith because when God seems to be late, His arrival pays for His lateness when He eventually show up.

The Need For A Mentor

*#copied*

Dear Young Man: A Guide To Mentoring

A few years ago, I was in South Africa and I stayed in my mentor's house. One day, he called me from Nigeria and gave me directions to a particular location I had to access by taking the Gautrain. He was on the phone with me almost throughout the journey which took about 2 hours. Eventually, I arrived at a choice piece of real estate and that night, what he taught me about real estate I have not read in any book. Much later, he called me one evening and asked me to drive towards a place called Siun along Sagamu-Abeokuta Road. When I met him there, he taught me about positioning for opportunities with the benefit of foresight. As I left my car to ride with him, he took me round that environment. He actually opened my eyes to the transformation happening around that area and how that axis will open up within 10 years. He taught me about risk taking. I have learnt about charity through him. I have observed how he works extremely hard even for his age. I have seen how content he is and learnt that one of his greatest strengths is his humility. Through him I have learnt that you can have gold and still be godly. I have observed his tremendous love for his wife even in the midst of longstanding challenges.

He has mentored me for about 17 years now. Yet I have never asked him for money since I knew him. He is absolutely well to do- mildly speaking. I have never even asked him to open an account with any bank I worked for - despite the fact that I have worked for about 7 banks. The few times he did, the request came from him personally. On one occasion, he expressed surprise that I have never discussed the issue of account opening with him. I have never asked him for special favors- not even for any connection. All I want is his wisdom. For me, in accordance with Proverbs 4:7, wisdom is the principal thing. Not money. And definitely not connection.

I have benefitted immensely from my mentor's wealth of knowledge and not necessarily from his deep pockets. And this is where so many people miss it now. I've had many people contact me for mentorship but I ended up finding out that what they needed was either a meal ticket or some form of favours. It breaks my heart when I see people make serious errors of judgment by choosing what is inconsequential to their lives. There was an instance when I refused a young man some financial favour he requested for and he shut the door. Till date, every text I send goes unanswered. And this was one person who requested for personal mentoring!

So this is to the young man who wants me to mentor him. I trust these tips will guide you so you can maximize the relationship:

1. A mentor is not a meal ticket. I don't provide money. I provide wisdom. Many people don't need mentors. What they need are business partners. Don't ask your mentor for financial favours. That will ruin the relationship. Rather ask for wisdom and guidance. Stop asking for money. If you get the wisdom, money is just a matter of time.

2. A mentor cannot solve all problems. I don't have a magic wand. I can talk to you about finance, leadership, purpose, business and excellence but I can't suggest who to marry to you. I don't know all things. I'm not the Holy Spirit. Certain things still remain your responsibility including the decisions you make. Your decisions are ultimately yours. Remember that even if I counsel you, your failures are strictly yours. I can't take responsibility for what you should. Recognize the expertise of the mentor.

3. Mentoring is a long term relationship. It is not short term. I have known my mentor for about 17 years and we are still going strong. Be ready to go the whole hog with me. You can't get all you need in one month or even one year. The best things in life unfold gradually.

4. Mentoring requires patience. You want something badly but you must be patient enough to get it. I'm going to try your patience- sometimes deliberately to know if you really want it that bad. I won't pick your calls sometimes. I won't respond to your mails at other times. All I'm trying to do is to stoke up the hunger within you. The hungrier you are, the easier it is to pass across timeless wisdom.

5. Mentees must curry the favour of the mentor. I have what you want and you must devise all means possible to get it from me. Stop visiting your mentors empty handed. I am not begging for a gift from you but if you want to collect something from me, you must release what is in your hands. Pro 18:16 (Message Translation) says a gift gets attention; it buys the attention of eminent people.

6. A mentor is not going to find you. You should find the mentor. I believe this is clear enough.

7. The greatest resource a mentor can give to the mentee is time. Use the time wisely. Ask questions. Observe quietly. But don't waste that time. Value it. Appreciate it. The greatest commodity that I have is not money. It's time.

8. A mentor is not your friend. Don't take that relationship for granted. I do not take my mentor for granted. I know his house but I don't barge in on him. I have access to him but I don't abuse that access. I don't call him at odd hours. I don't get too familiar. A mentorship can develop into a relationship later on.

So, dear mentee, a mentor helps you to prepare for the future. In the words of Isaac Newton, "If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." A mentor provides ideas, thoughts and insights that elevate your thinking. A mentor can push you to the next level. A mentor nurtures. A mentor shares valuable life lessons. A mentor shares their mistakes you so you don't have to make the same mistakes again.

I trust this guide helps you.

*REMEMBER THIS, NO ACT OF KINDNESS IS A WASTE! OUR PRIME PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO HELP OTHERS AND IF YOU CAN NOT HELP THEM, AT LEAST DO NOT HURT THEM!*
*THANK YOU ALL!!! SEE YOU AT THE TOP...*
Who would have taught,Nokia 3310 would be a forgotten phone in the midst of Androids.
No one knows tomorrow....

LESSON FORTY-TWO

SUNDAY, 18TH JUNE 2017

TOPIC: MEANINGFUL CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

MEMORY VERSE:

''And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart" - Acts 2:46

BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 2:44-47

INTRODUCTION:

A tree cannot make a forest, neither a soldier make up an army. There has always been a cricial need for relational interation among Christians alike. For fellowship to be meaningful and beneficial, it must go beyond the realms of preaching, teaching, fasting, studying, praise/worship and other spiritual activities. It must be full of deep felt concern and care for the emotional and physical wellbeing of one another in the household of God. Effective fellowship is putting oneself in the shoes of others to feel what they are passing through (Romans 12:15).

LESSON OUTLINES

1. Meaning of Christian fellowship

2. Benefits of Christian fellowship

MEANING OF CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

Fellowship means spending time together in sharing of personal experiences and learning from them (Psalm 133:1-3). Christians are enjoined to have fellowship with God and also with one another (Hebrews 10:25). However, Christian interation should transcend the confines of spirituality. It should extend to all areas of human physical, emotional and physiological needs (Acts 2:42-46). Through genuine fellowship, Christians will understand each other's strengths and weaknesses rather than being judgmental (Romans 14:1, 13). Believers must support one another when rejoicing or facing challenges (Proverbs 27:17). All these must be done without selfish or ulterior motives but in line with the will of God (Colossians 3:23).

BENEFITS OF CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

Some of the benefits of Christian fellowship are summarised thus:
a. It is an atmosphere to share personal day to day experiences and learn from each other (Proverbs 27:17).

b. It allows for personal growth and accountability (Ephesians 4:15).

c. It helps one to receive and render support for crucial family needs e.g. childcare, job opportunities, business ideas and important information (Galatians 6:10).

d. It brings about effective mentoring to avert worldly influence (1Timothy 6:20).

e. It provides ample support and encouragement in times of adversity (Galatians 6:2).

f. It creates opportunity for joy, mutual comfort, unity, encouragement and peace (2Corinthians 13:11).

God save our husbands

SAVE OUR HUSBANDS!

Why do husbands in Africa die most times before wives? A husband in Africa in most cases is under intense tension because he is responsible for:

Children school fees
House rents
Electricity bills
Medical bills
Generator fuel & repairs
Car fuel and repairs
Feeding of family
Clothes for children
Xmas and New year bills
Furniture &House maint
In-laws wahala/demand
His own aged parents
His siblings most times
His wife's demands
Vigilante bills
Erecting Building
Religious demands
Family social bills
Electronics bills
Recharge cards
Extended family bills
Community demands

On top of the above, he also faces:

Wife stress/insults
Boss stress at work
Police stress on the way
Area boys stress
Kidnappers fear
Friends stress
Economy stress
Fear of job loss
Unemployment pains
Armed Robbery stress
Children misbehaviour
Neighbours stress
Bank loan paymnt stress
Witchcraft stress
Demonic attack stress
Sex stress
....and so on! OMG!!

Are these reasons not enough for all African Wives to understand and give their husbands peace at home? Are men not trying? How can an African man with this kind of load be romantic like an American man? Women, please give your husband peace at home. Encourage your husband. Stop being sarcastic to him. Except if you like to join the widows club early! Note:
That club is not funny. Ask members. Help your husband. Contribute to the family. Be a helper. Be submissive. Stop nagging. Build your home and marriage. It is not greener outside there. Don't be deceived!!
Let our men and husbands live long like you. Men dey beg una😃

Warning to travellers with the previous knowledge of where they are going before...

A Note Of Warning To Travellers Without A Precise Knowledge Of Their Destination.
Two weeks ago a Senior lecturer at the Federal University of Agric Benue State visited her relative in Lokoja, Kogi State.
She arrived Lokoja and called her host for direction.
Her host told her to call an okada and give him the phone so she can explain the address. She did exactly that explaining to the Okada man how to bring the guest lecturer to her place. And that was it till today. There is no trace of this lady till today. However, two days after, a call came through demanding for
#500,000 ransom. The money was arranged and duly handed over. The phone went off till today and the lady lecturer is still missing.
We all do this once in a while trusting unknown Okada drivers to help us deliver our visitors or find our direction. Please it is time to stop. They have started taking advantage of the trust.
Tell your visitor to stop at a designated point, take the pain to go and pick him or her.

May the Most High protect us from wicked and unreasonable men as we sojourn through the journey of life on a daily basis, amen.

Pls Forward to your friends and family..

Kidnappers are everywhere... Let us be very very careful... Close than we thought. Please let us be careful

The following was received from a resident of the Monastery Road corridor.

We must all be watchful and above all, pray for God's protection. 

I will be raising the issue will the management of Novare Lekki Mall as well.

" *Posted as received"*

All protocols duly observed . I'm new here and I understand this is completely outside the issues on ground but I really think it's important I share my experience which is also a testimony in the hands of KIDNAPPERS recently. Hopefully , we could all learn from this and tighten our security measures.

My name is Stephanie Ezenwa . I live at no 24 , in this estate .

On the 11th of June which is about 4 days ago , I took my 14 year old younger brother to Lekki Novare mall here in Sangotedo or shoprite as it is popularly called so he could have a haircut and I could do some grocery shopping as well . This is really an eye opener because we hear of kidnappers everyday but we have no idea how close they are to us and their evil modes of operation.

We got to the mall at about 6.30 pm that Sunday evening and while we were shopping together at games store , I figured it's best he goes to cut his hair while I continue with the shopping in order to save time as well as beat the closing hour of the store and salon . So I gave him some money for his haircut and since I'd be needing some assistance on pushing about 3 trolleys to the car park , I asked him to go put the already purchased dispenser bottles in the truck before proceeding to the salon which is also in the same mall at invivo's store to be precise.

I wasn't worried leaving him by himself because I felt he was old enough and I don't really see him as a kid . He's actually very smart and hardworking for his age . Besides, that wasn't the first time we've separated to unite later in the same mall with the same kind of scenario and because the mall is very close to the house, I couldn't really imagine that something could go wrong.

When I was done shopping , I went to Invivo store (the salon ) to pick him up , but he wasn't there as a matter of fact the salon was already closed even though the store was still opened. I asked the security officials in the store if they'd seen him and they said no . At this point, I wasn't worried yet , I thought he might be at the car park waiting for me . I got to the car park but he wasn't there as well . I opened the truck and found the dispenser bottles I had asked him to keep earlier . I ran my eyes around the park and there wasn't any trace of him. I called his number several times but the network was really bad so it couldn't connect and when it eventually did , the phone was said to be switched off. 

Fear began to set in as all kinds of thoughts started running through my mind as to where he might be . "could he be using the rest room ? , did he go back to the store to look for me ? , did he run into a friend and got carried away ? Was his battery flat before leaving the house ? " At this point, I had virtually walked around the whole mall and I still couldn't find him . I alerted the mall's security immediately and I must say that they're the worst set of security officials , I'd ever dealt with. They seemed clueless on what to do , very incompetent bunch. All they kept saying was that a 14 year old cannot get lost in the mall, that he probably went somewhere else.

I know my boy would never do such a thing . I requested that they check their CCTV camera but they claimed that they have to wait for their boss to come before they could do anything and it's even against their policy to go looking at the cameras in the control room . They suggested I go check him at home since my house is close by. 

As the night got darker , I could feel the darkness of my reality. I'd already informed my husband and mum of the situation and had driven to the estate to ask the gatemen if they'd seen him but the sound of their "no" killed the last hope I had left . However, I drove to the house anyway to clear all doubts but he wasn't there .

Long story short , I drove back to the mall to look for him . At this point , I'd started jumping, screaming and creating a scene . I'd gotten help to look for him around the mall again . According to the security officials, the CCTV camera only captured him walking out of the mall with the trolley to the car park, it didn't show what happened at the car park and they never saw him go back inside the mall . they still wouldn't allow me gain access to the control room to see for myself. To crown it all , the CCTV camera situated at the main entrance to the mall (entrance gate) isn't working! 

We were already on our way to the Ajiwe police station to report the incident at about 10:40pm when I got a call from my mum. She told me a custom officer had just called her to say he found him in MARINA wondering about and that he intends to hand him over to the nearest police station. 

Miraculously, we went to the police station, Area A command in lion's building and FOUND HIM. He was hale and hearty.

Apparently , it was a case of "touch and follow" . According to my brother , he was walking back to the mall from the car park when someone tapped him on his hand , immediately he turned to find out who it was , that was the end . He didn't remember anything else that must have happened. All he remembered was that he found himself running in the middle of a busy road ( Marina) and everywhere was dark .

Thank God for the custom officer who found him and while interrogating him was able to get my mum's number from him as he didn't remember mine and couldn't find his phone nor the money he had. 

Obviously, his kidnappers must have changed their minds as my boy's spirit was too strong for them so they decided to dump him in marina. How they got there , we have no idea. Is it by bus, a private car , did they disappear ? we have no clue. 

Overall , we're grateful to God for his grace and mercy . We would have be saying a different story by now but he delivered us from the hands of the wicked . We owe it all to HIM. This is indeed a great miracle !

Lessons learnt from this ,
0.    Kidnappers are everywhere and even closer to us than we might think
0.    Parents should really watch out for the children in close range especially at public places, regardless of their age .
0.    Parents should ensure their kids can recite all their parents' phone numbers by heart. Including knowing their house address.

However , in the case of "touch and follow " , no one is really safe , even an adult could fall victim . We can only rely on God's protection. 

My apologies for not making this as brief as I had originally planned. Thank you all so much for your audience. Let's all be guarded.

*Please​ broadcast to all of our neighbors.* *Let us look out for one another and pray for God's protection wherever we may go.*
