I love September. Yeah I know it’s funny to be saying that in October but I’m just sitting here thinking It’s been the most amazing two weeks. Actually it’s been an amazing month and two weeks. Counting from September 1st
Hectic but amazing nontheless. I can’t even begin to explain how in awe of God I am. It’s been a whole lot of activity at DCC – our wonderful church family – to celebrate the first 20 years of our ministry.
I just love this amazing picture taken by Avril (mr Grey) he’s just got magic. He’s the future in my opinion. He has an amazing eye. Takes the best portraits. I honestly think Avril is the only person who has ever Made me feel like doing a photoshoot. Like I’m actually planning it for my 40th birthday. Check him out on Instagram @avrgrey
That’s the front cover of our photobook. If you want one you can buy one it’s still on sale but I’m still thinking I may give one out. You will have to wait till the end of the blog to find out if the Lord has spoken and what YOU need to do to get it since I’m paying. Nothing’s free darlings -someone else just pays for it.
But if I don’t say anything about it then keep coming back who knows it may just be the next post
I was so blown away by all the love and camaraderie at DCC but isn’t that what makes us so special? Our family feel?
We went from wearing blazers in the first week
with our unique DCC lapel pins which are still available for sale by the way and would you believe they have cuff links too? Lovely work of art as a constant reminder of our covenant of victory with God.
Then of course the grand finale. Our thanksgiving service. It was such a beautiful experience to see our people in Aso-Ebi as a family in true Naija styled celebration. Also having our papa Rev Femi Oduwole in the house was a major plus for me.
Now in between all of this was our Just Us Girls Naija Conference – BEAUTIFUL. I don’t even know where to start. I really planned to tell you all about it but now words fail me. You know what? Just manage pictures Biko. I just know that all the ministers of the night – Mayowa
And pastor Jerry Eze were handpicked by God. At the end of the evening we all left there, our mouths filled with laughter, our hearts re-ignited to worship and with the strong assurance that the glory of God had beautified our lives. We left there screaming like Nollywood movies…. To God Be The Glory.
By Monday morning I was off with 13 ladies to take our hunger for more of God to St. Louis for the Joyce Meyer Love Life Conference 2016. I left on my birthday thinking I had escaped all the fuss but boy was I in for a shocker
I was blown away by all the love I was shown both in life and on social media. Thank you kemi @kemistryphotography for this video. I loooooove it. We had such a great time at the conference this year some pictures. Our official JUGN photographer and selfie lord tried to get as many pictures for you guys find them on @justusgirlsnaija on Instagram but here are a few.
We had such a blast. With loads of pictures. We left there with eyes wide open in awe of God, hearts enlarged to do greater things even when afraid. It didn’t matter that we were cold and tired most of the time. We were too excited to notice. Way too inspired to notice. So we were there. Very present …
This trip was so good for me and not just because I got to hear three of my favourite women in one room – only God knows how much I love mama Joyce, Beth Moore and Christine Caine. It was too much of a blessing but that’s not really it. It’s the many lessons I learned on this trip
I saw God in all his gracious and majestic splendor. I saw the Word become flesh. I remember the last time I was at love life conference in 2012 I was alone and I remember the first thing I said was I will be back and I won’t come back alone. To be honest I kind of forgot about it but when I walked into the venue with 13 amazing women God reminded me
The process of this trip brought forth a lot of miracles for me. Prayers were answered- we literally got everything we prayed for as a group. People who had been refused visa 3 times had it overturned because it was their turn. People who could barely stand each other became close friends on the trip. People learned to walk by faith, learned and experienced the beauty of favour first hand. It was us doing life together and I loved it.
In fact I loved it so much I think we should do this at least once every year. I haven’t gotten the complete blueprint from God yet but we have started downloading. In fact I will be back in a few weeks with details. We have a team working on this. So ladies first things first – get your faith out. As my Pk says when you want to dream, dream based on heaven’s economy. If you want to be a part of our #JUGNdoinglifetogethertrips first step is to desire it.
Then we’ll take it from there…
Okay guys I need to run this has turned out to be a much longer post than I planned. I will be back soon. So much happening in my life and ministry that I would love to share with you. So much God is doing in me and through me that I hope will inspire you. That will give you hope. Isn’t that what JUGN is all about?
Building friendships …Giving hope!
Love you guys so much and I’m sure that the things God will do in your lives this season will literally blow your minds
