Singles’ Conference 2014 – the report

15th February 2014

 We thank God almighty for the success of the second singles’ conference, which took place at our Birmingham Branch.  Singles from all our different branches came together.  Some came from as far as Aberdeen, some from Manchester, London and Birmingham. We had in attendance a total of about 45 singles present as well as their branch ministers.

The main aim of the conference was for the spinsters and bachelors to talk about current issues facing us and to share with each other strategies in overcoming the various challenges that they are facing. Also the church’s aim is to encourage the singles, and to let us know that church is praying for us and also the processes that the ministries goes through with those who are engaged to be married.

The day started with an introduction from Rev Adigun, he outlined the structure of the day.  The singles were then asked to introduce themselves to at least two people that they have not met.  (They were asked to find out one important thing about this individual).

We watched two short clips; the first was titled “Don’t waste your Singleness” this focused on encourage the single, to make good use of this time to be all they can be for God. They should put His service as a major priority, until the time when God will provide for us the bone of our bones.

 

The second clip was called “Pursue Her”, the clip sharing some important insight on how single men should seek Godly advice on their pursuit for a wife.  The single ladies too, where advised that they too should keep their hearts and let God be the guide, and trust him to chose and lead them in the right way.

We were split into two groups to discuss our thoughts on the clips, as well as points that were written down.  The discussion sessions were great, God blessed, and it was wonderful to have singles being open and sharing their experiences, their highs and lows; sharing how God has been and is still keeping them.

Before lunch the two groups shared the important points that they gained from their group discussion

Lunch was provided by our brethren in Birmingham, May God Bless them all.

After lunch, Brother Isaac shared with the group some useful hints and information, for couples intending to marry.

Some of the points are as follows.

  1. Finance
  2. Children/Family Planning
  3. Preparation for the unexpected
  4. Culture clashes
  5. Dealing with in-laws
  6. Understanding a man
  7. Understanding a woman

Brother Isaac continued to open a time for question and answer, due to time constraints we could not go through every item. We pray for another opportunity like this to continue this discussion.

We thank God almighty for the success of this day.  It is our prayer that God will keep all our Spinsters and Bachelors, until that appointed time. We pray that God will help them to rely on Him and that they all will wait for His leading and listen when he speaks.

 

Whose side are You on?

At about midday on Saturday the 1st of February 2014, Delta Force Paintballing Centre saw about 30 young people from the AFM London attend the postponed January Youth Monthly Event Programme.

The team waded through the mud as we had fun and also got inspired through the game of Paintball. It was indeed an experience and even more when we discussed lessons learnt over lunch of Pizza. The lessons were numerous: lack of preparation, being team mates, keeping up spiritually no matter how hard it may be. We can see even more from the short stories that evolved, one of which can be found here. We look forward to a more exciting time with believers as well as with God as we grow spiritually in 2014.

Determination To Succeed

Determination to succeed was the first youth led sermon of the year. It definitely left us young citizens of the United Kingdom determined to succeed like Daniel in the bible.

Watch the service, listen to the testimonies, join in with the songs, but hear the message. Do the word. Pray that this year definitely puts you in a good stead to succeed in Christ.

We really need to #prayforSyria

The conflict in Syria has reached “unprecedented levels of horror”, peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has told the UN Security Council. (BBC)

Middle East Conflicts. Chaos. War. Death. Innocent. Guilty. Discrimination. Oppression. This. That.

Whatever the reason, we need to ask God of Justice, peace and hope to bring peace to the country and the global community. It may feel so far fetch from us as Syria is on a different continent, but there are several people who are hoping that we, the international community, are praying for them.

We can intercede that there will be no more suffering from violence, comfort those who have lost their loved ones, help countries who are taking in Syrian refugees, protect those people who choose to live for peace, and those who continue to use violence…God should change their hearts.

Yes, there has been reported “ethnic cleansing of Christians in Syria”. According to Barnabas Fund, A senior church leader reported that they face “inflation, poverty, growing sectarian enmity, shortages of food and fuel, cold weather, revenge, kidnapping for big amount of ransom, risk of travelling, frequent internet cut off and many such things.” But we have to be the light and show a true reflection of Jesus. It was on the road to Damascus, capital of today’s Syria, that Saul was stopped short in his mission to destroy the early Church. The risen Christ asked him “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?” (Acts 9:4). It was in Damascus that Saul regained his sight again after being struck blind, and it was here that he was filled with the Holy Spirit, was baptised and began his ministry as an apostle. Let us start by committing every soul to the Lord. All they need is an encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Just like Paul.
