Sunday came like every other day of week and as usual I got ready for
church but before I left home, I prayed silently to God Almighty in heaven, humbly kneeling down on the ground…”Lord don’t let me see Joan, abeg… I don’t want to come across that potential gold digger ever again in my life. Abeg, do this for me and Lord pls
let the words of the pastor sink positive vibes into my life. In Jesus name I pray.
Amen”. I took my bible and headed straight to church.
My prayers did worked. I didn’t see any sign of Joan. God is indeed marvelous.
I smiled as I comfortably sat down in church in the front roll as usual, waiting patiently for the pastor to begin his sermon.
But unfortunately he didn’t make it to church that Sunday so we had a guest pastor all the way from Anambra state that Sunday to come fellowship with us, his name was Sir Pastor, Clement Chukwuebuka Ogedengba, senior pastor of Holy Sanity Assembly Ministery.
Pastor Clement, was introduced by one the young servants of God, he was invited to step on the podium to preach to us. We all clapped our hands, welcoming the man of God into our midst. Pastor Clement walked towards the pulpit, holding a microphone and his huge bible in his left hands. he shouted out loud… ”PRAISSSSSSSE
We responded with ”Halellujah”.
”wait hold on, wait…. Is that how you guys respond when you praise the lord over here in Ekpoma?” he said ”Can I hear you give a resounding halellujah to the Almighty God”
”HALELLLLLUUUUJAH” we all responded, some people even lost their voices while shouting.
”That’s good. It’s good to be vibrant in spirit” he said with a smiley face, wiping his face with his handkerchief.
Pst. Clement Chukwuebuka Ogedengba, should be in his late 30’s, he was young and vibrant, fresh and elegant but he had a bared head, and he was way too short. But not a midget. He had a very huge mustache like Eddie
Murphys, and he dangled his car keys as he preached to us.
”Brethren, have you ever been in a situation whereby you just feel so light and You just feel like floating in the air.
The presence of God in your life can indeed get you to that height. You don’t need any other power apart from God.
Oooh! Thank you Jesus”. Pastor Clement wiped his face again and dangled his car keys while he spoke to the congregation. ”I’m not new year, I’m sure most of you must have seen me before. But brethren I just want you to know that, you can always feel God
presence in your life.. Oh! You guys are not getting me”
”Ride on pastor, we are feeling you. You dey burst my brain. Make I shoki for you” one the member of the congregation stood up, dancing shoki.
”Thank you very much brethren. You are indeed blessed… So as I was saying, I’ve encountered angels, name them.. Angel Michael, Angel Gabriel, just to name a few. I sat in my room yesterday before I broke my 20 days fast. I was with Mary and Jesus Christ, we had an intensed converstion” he wiped his face yet again and he continued ”I shouldn’t be telling you all this. Your minds are still too young.
You need to feel the presence of God in your life, my fellow brethren”.
After service, I went home. Service that day was way too long. We closed
around 2:00pm. I laid on my soft comfortable bed thinking of what to eat, reflecting on what the Pastor said and waiting patiently for Juliet to show up.
I got a call from Thompson, telling me to come over to his place.
Thompson: Temy show my place na.

Me: you be gay?…. I dey expect babe o. See this guy.
Thompson: why na, so you wan looseguard your guy because of woman. Woman wey dey everywhere like flies?

Thompson: the babe no dey run, you just show my side. Make we flex.

I took my bathe, got dressed and headed straight to Thompsons house.
But You need to see what I saw on getting there.
