It was a Saturday and Ayo was hanging the clothes she washed, after which she will go to the market to purchase some food stuff. She found that she missed school life but now she has graduated, everything became too boring. She wondered when and where she will be posted for her primary assignment. The persistent ringing of her phone jolted her out of her thought.
“Hello! Good morning!” How are you doing?”
“I am fine. Na wa for you Amarachi. You have forgotten me oo”
” It’s not like that. How have you been?”
” You better come to school to collect your letter of posting. I have been posted to Bayelsa state.”
Oh! That’s great oo. I will be in school on Monday then!
They gisted about school life.
“Prof Atama is dead. I heard he slept and never woke.”
“What a sad news. I wished he surrendered to God. Amarachi, there’s no repentance in the grave.”
“That’s why I am grateful to God for a second chance to live my life for God. I was so devastated when I discovered I had HIV but God showed me mercy and he stepped in to heal me.
“All glory to God”
“Do you know I visited more than three hospitals confirm if I still had HIV? She laughed so loud. “All were negative.”
“Please don’t get disconnected from God. He gave you a second chance. Use it well.
“I failed father before Ayo but I am not failing again”
“Alright Ayo I believe you.”
They chatted for a while before they said their good byes.
Ayo was posted to Lagos State for her NYSC. Lagos with it’s crowdiness wasn’t familiar to her.
Ayo’s one year in Lagos State was characterized by her great exploit for God and humanity. She single handedly bought eighty plastic chairs for the church she chose to attend. On her first day in church, she observed that the people standing in the church were more than people seating. The church was situated at a central place but members find it difficult to support the work of God. Ayo refused to be a bench warmer. As usual, she was active.
Trying to support in her own capacity. She didn’t like the fact that people were standing because there were no enough chair. By the next Sunday, people sat comfortably in the church and the pastor of the church announced it was corper Ayomide that provided chairs. From that day, she became a household name in the church. She became the darling of the Church.
“Who are you?” A sister asked her after Bible study one evening
“I don’t understand your question?
“I know your type. What you doing in this church is called “High service or notice me.” You want to buy the pastor’s love by the things you do in this church. Since you started this church, the pastor has been singing your praises. Corper Ayomi did this. Corper Ayomi did that. Are you the only corper here?
“Look here, I am not interested in your pastor”
“You can pretend for all I care. I know your type. Let me inform you now since you don’t have eyes to see. The pastor has eyes only for my sister and make sure you confuse him. I am warning you now. Stay clear from pastor Greg.” She hissed and walked out on Ayomide.
Ayo watched her cat walked to the church entrance. She mused and laughed loud.
“Who’s interested in your pastor?”
Four days later, the same sister confronted Ayo again.
“I am not interested in your pastor and if God decide to give him to me, there’s nothing you or anybody can do about it. Please let today be the last time you will talk trash to me.”
Ayo got home sad and started contemplating leaving the church to avoid unnecessary clash, embarrassment and confrontation with anyone. She resolved to check out other churches in the environment. She was in for a big surprise when by early morning on Sunday the Holy Spirit started ministering to her.
“You must not leave that church because I will use you there mightily. The congregation is yet to experience my power and touch. Who created you Ayo?”
“Who called you?”
“You sir!” “Who will you listen to and obey?”
“Then don’t be discouraged or afraid. I am the Authority behind you. I am the one sending you to bring liberty to the oppressed. I love you Ayo and I will not withhold good things from you. I will root out anyone against my plan for the church. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. Trust me my child.”
Ayo got dressed excitedly that morning. Her father had spoken and so be it. She must not miss Sunday school class. She rushed into the church compound and found pastor Greg in the premises.
“Good morning pastor!
“Ah! Corper Ayomi. How are you?”
“I am fine sir”
“Emm… I got a call that the choir mistress is sick and she won’t be able to make it to church today.”
“So sorry to hear sir.”
“Please don’t turn my request down. I need someone to fill in for her. I have some sisters here and they all declined. I know you have never handled the microphone before but please use the voice any how it comes.” He told her smiling.
“Alright pastor. I will try my best.
Ayomide joined the Sunday School class and when it was over she moved to the choir section. Eyes were watching her Wonder when did she join the choir. On this particular Sunday, the church was packed full. It was as if God himself went and brought people to the church.
When it was time for ministration, the pastor instructed that the microphone be given to her. While people were murmuring, she saw some Angels standing behind her to back her up. She saw two tall angels at the entrance of the church ushering people in.
Ayomide experienced calmness and she knew her father was present. She couldn’t tell what happened but she knew God was dealing with a lot of people, He was settling difficult cases as she ministers. By the time Ayo was through with ministration, pastor Greg was on his knees and more than half of the congregation were on the floor crying for mercy.
“I am set to do a new thing in their lives because I love them” God would tell Ayo. She would roll on the floor in appreciation. God Himself announced her. People from different churches started inviting her for ministration. She would go and lie on the altar, God would tell her He is there or the altar is polluted. Sometimes, God do stop her from accepting some invitations.
“Don’t waste your time my child. I am not there. I can’t be found there. Other time He would tell her, “your destiny will be tampered with or they pastor want to collect what you carry. Always seek my permission first child”
Ayo never lacked anything. As she served God, God took good care of her. People were always eager to bless her.
“Would you like to stay in Lagos after your Nysc? a woman asked her
“No ma. I will return to my state oo.”she said smiling.”
“I have landed properties everywhere in this state. I have 2 plots close to the church. I want to give it to you. Since you joined this church, things changed and it changed for me positively.”
“Oh thank you ma. It’s not me but God ma. But please I want you to be aware that when I accept the land, I will give it to the church. Haven’t you noticed how the church increased in population and no more place to accommodate people?” I have been praying for expansion ma”
“Well corper Ayo, I am giving the land to you. You’re a kind hearted person. Follow me let’s me show you the land.
