Eleven Children, One Wife, No Home Living Amidst Refuse And Rubbish For Over Three Years – TB Joshua


A stirring tale of glorious hope shining amidst the dark chasms of despair, of seperation and shame transfromed to unity and peace, of loneliness and homelessness replaced with life and love. Because God was involved…

Beyond the burdening, burgeoning bondage of homelessness, Mr Kefa Olatunji Taiwo had strayed slowly into the hazardous realms of hopelessness. At 60 years old, his family had scattered, any shred of dignity or self-worth left battered – his life in total tatters. Living in a bedraggled and dishevelled excuse for a shed, scantily assorted from stray aluminium and rotting wood, he had dwelt and dealt in the refuse grounds of Lagos, Nigeria for over three agonising years, surrounded by the repulsive stench of decay and debris, and the degrading stigma of a lunatic-like existence. Suicidal tendencies crept increasingly closer…

Living amidst the rubbish...

Living amidst the rubbish…

He suddenly halted before him, sensing something strange.“You are the one I am chasing.” Kefa looked up, astounded, dumbfounded. “Where is your family? Everybody is scattered in your home – and you are sleeping under the bridge, as an elderly man.” Extraodinary. His life-story unfurling uncannily from a man he had never encountered, a man he had never explained his predicament to. “You are getting old, an old man sleeping outside – and the family are scattered. Do you know where your problem comes from? This is what your mummy was telling you. The little money you had, you were going out – sometimes in the night you will not come home. You would take girlfriends. The little you had – you spent it just like that. This has destroyed you, destroyed your career.” How did he know? Whom had he told? “Something happened to you before this thing started. You met a mad woman – you never knew she’s a mad woman, and you slept with the woman. This is where the problem comes from. Today, when you sleep you see animals.” “Exactly, sir”

When Mr Taiwo walked dejectedly into The Synagogue, Church of All Nations in Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday 30th August, unbeknown to him was the unfolding of a divine design to break the chains of poverty and restore the bonds of unity within his crises-fraught family. The prophecy took him by surprise. It was so sudden, so direct, so precise. Pastor TB Joshua narrated his life to him, a brief 30 seconds of breath-taking revelation, a concise uncovering. As he was led through the beautiful sanctuary, a flame of hope licked within his veins. Could it be a way out had actually come?

Just imagine, just consider... what do you have to give?

Just imagine, just consider… what do you have to give?

The following week he stood again before the vast SCOAN auditorium, clips of his ‘home’ broadcast to the world live on Emmanuel TV. Evangelists had accompanied Taiwo to establish the veracity of the prophecy. The crowd gasped, beholding a dank wasteland with pigs scavenging among the filth, dirty infected water up to the knees, slime and grime at every turn. And a human being lived there, slept there, ate there, amidst the clutter and litter of decomposing garbage and gunk. “I’m useless,” the former furniture maker told the evangelists. “I just have to go and hide myself here when it is night. This is a shameful place, but I have no alternative – that’s why I have to stay here, living here as a mad man,” he said, explaining how local hoodlums had burnt his only property to ashes, forcing homelessness upon him.

Accompanied by his estranged wife and 11 children, all suffering a similar fate, Mr Taiwo watched on in reflective silence. “I believe if this man is helped, he will not go back to his past life – because he has tasted suffering and hardship,” said TB Joshua, addressing the whole congregation. “And I know if blessing comes now, he will be able to maintain it. Sometimes God uses foolish things. Don’t be surprised that among these children may be the president of tomorrow. Remember the past history, remember the heroes – many of them were raised from this kind of humble background,” he explained. “The first step is to get accommodation for the family, so we can bring the family together and let them live as one. To liberate these children, we must give them scholarships. And those who want to learn a skill – we will give them that opportunity.” The pastor, famed for his unrivalled and unbridled philanthropic works, explained that if the youths were left to themselves, they would probably end up in armed robbery or prostitution out of frustrations irrationalising influence. “Give them N300,000 and five bags of rice.”

Tears of shock and joy escaped from beneficiaries and congregants alike. Never before had Kefa seen or touched such money. “I didn’t expect this. Thank you, sir,” he quibbled, words failing to form his heart-felt expressions of gratitude. “This is what we are born for, this is what we are to live for, this is what we are to die for,” smiled the prophet, ascribing all glory to God.

“Someone out there is waiting for you for a lifetime,” Joshua counselled the enthralled audience and viewers worldwide. “You cannot afford to fail them; failing them is failing God. Remember, God is speaking to you through them, saying: ‘They are fatherless, so that you can be their father.’ ‘They are lonely, so that you can be their companion.’ ‘They are in want, so that you can be their benefactor.’ ”

SCOAN Takes Over Responsibilities Of Deceased’s Dependants


SCOAN Collapse building

One of the survivors of the collapsed Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), guest building, Taiwo Taiwo, on Thursday told a Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere that the Church paid and took over the welfare of all the dependants of all the persons that died in the tragic incident.

Taiwo, who is testifying as a defence witness, also told the trial judge, Justice Lawal-Akapo that the Church has not failed at any time to carry out the obligations, towards the dependants of the deceased.

The Lagos State government is prosecuting the Registered Trustees of Synagogue Church of All Nations, (SCOAN) and the two engineers that constructed the collapsed building on a 111-count charges of criminal negligence, manslaughter and failure to obtain building permit.

He also stated that he never saw any crack in any part of the building while attending to guests on the other floors

Justice Lawal-Akapo, adjourned the case till today for continuation of trial.

TB Joshua Prophetic Ministry Under Attack – RESPONSE


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

For years a group of disgruntled former disciples who failed to hijack the SCOAN branch in an overseas country have been launching blistering attacks on anything associated with Synagogue and its founder, Prophet T.B. Joshua.

The preamble to their latest attack reads out something like this, ‘… we have not set out to argue that the healing at SCOAN is fraudulent. Genuinely remarkable things have taken place there’. If they agree that ‘remarkable’ miracles have taken place there then what is their problem?

This same group of people continue to quote words of encouragements and sermons preached by the prophet.

THE PRICE OF BETRAYAL
THE PRICE OF BETRAYAL

This brings me back to the resignation letter of one of the overseas pastors who in their letter of resignation quoted the prophet and went on further to say they were leaving because of the ‘supposedly’ control from Lagos.

Since then, their agents have fought tooth and nail to drag the man of God to disrepute. As the saying goes, ‘do not bite the hand that feeds you’, they have done everything possible to drag the man of God into the mud. It is unbelievable to think that these people lived under the roof of the prophet, dined and preached the word of God with him.

THE PRICE OF BETRAYAL

Like Judas, they’ve attempted to stab him in the back because he prevented the hijack of his church. They have thrown caution to the wind and mobilised their own kith and kin to fight the prophet. My advice to them is ‘do not touch my anointed and do my prophets harm’.

The latest attack is regarding the prophecy the prophet gave concerning the hurricane in the Philippines. This is well documented and the whole world heard it live. It was not done behind closed doors so why the twist to make it as if the video was manipulated.

Charged With Electrifying Force of The Holy Spirit


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

PROPHET TB JOSHUA

What a glorious day it was! From the fully packed auditorium charged with electrifying force of the Holy Spirit to an equally awed overflow congregation, The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria was probably the most perfect venue any worshipper would have loved to be last Sunday. The mighty power of God manifested itself through wonders and miracles as the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, walked among the congregants, ministering prayer.

WORSHIP

Thousands of worshippers from all over the world, including a large entourage from Spain, who gathered at the church to worship, witnessed the power of Christ in action right from the Prayer Line where the man of God has recently been ministering. Demons were commanded to their knees and cast out in the name of Jesus Christ, while many people were declared free, in the name of the Lord. While at the Prayer Line, Prophet T.B. Joshua took a brief moment to speak on faith, saying it should not be circumstantial but an all time attitude irrespective of one’s situation.

“Jesus did not say, if you encounter a situation you should pray; He said you should have faith. Today, we pray but lack the necessary faith that can release the belief in our heart. Prayer is not right if it does not spring from faith. One is rewarded, healed, delivered or blessed only if one talks in faith,” he said, referring to Mark 11:22 and Matthew 4:1-11.

$4,000,000 FRAUDSTER USING T.B. JOSHUA’S NAME EXPOSED


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

A terrible case of fraud was exposed by investigators within the Ghanaian police. After capturing a man who had a devilish plan to dupe people of almost $4,000,000 using Prophet T.B. Joshua’s name, he gave his shocking confession for the world to hear.

Mr kAnthony, who is from both Togo and Ghana, explained in handcuffs how he had begged a director of a large company in Ghana to provide him money to visit The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria after he had been diagnosed with HIV/AIDs. Pitying his condition, the man gave him the required funds which he used to visit The SCOAN. He went, received prayer in Jesus’ name and returned to Ghana. Incredibly, he returned to the doctors for a test which confirmed him negative to HIV/AIDs. However, rather than appreciating God for restoring his health, this gentleman saw it as an opportunity to enrich himself through dishonest means. He returned to the same gentleman who had assisted him to visit The SCOAN, claiming that he was sent by Prophet T.B. Joshua and needed financial support for supposed building projects.

$4,000,000 FRAUD USING T.B. JOSHUA’S NAME EXPOSED
$4,000,000 FRAUDSTER USING T.B. JOSHUA’S NAME EXPOSED

The man graciously complied, naively believing that Prophet T.B. Joshua was aware of the transactions. Altogether, he collected $55,000 from that particular gentleman, alongside some money in other currencies also. However, this was just the beginning. Seeing the opportunity to use T.B. Joshua’s name to deceitfully enrich himself, he hatched a malicious plan with a man named ‘Igwe’ in Nigeria to dupe people of up to $4,000,000. The plan involved forging documents claiming to be written by Prophet T.B. Joshua, even faking his own signature, requesting financial support for huge building projects. The deception even went to the extent that ‘Igwe’ would pretend to be Prophet T.B. Joshua on the phone, misleading people to believe that he was aware of all the money they were giving. Thank God that this fraudster was caught. As we continue to stress on Emmanuel TV, please beware of fraudsters!

Obstructing Our Prayer


The Almighty God again demonstrated His everlasting faithfulness to His children on Sunday when His grace manifested with overwhelming dominance at the SCOAN’s Sunday Service. For visitors who had come from all over the world to worship at the church’s headquarters in Lagos – Nigeria, it was an awesome experience as they encountered the power of the Holy Spirit in action. Those who came with afflictions were delivered while those who had sicknesses were prayed for and healed in the name of Jesus Christ. What started with a Prayer Line where God used the faculties of the wise men to set His people free. Prophet T.B. Joshua ministered prayer, prophecy and healing to the congregants in Jesus’ name. He walked among the congregation and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, revealed hidden truths that were root to individuals’ and nations’ problems. The man of God dwelled on the prophetic message he ministered to the congregation the previous week about Christianity not being ‘the work we do but the relationship we maintain and the atmosphere produced by that relationship.’ He subtitled his message: HINDRANCE TO PRAYER. He said the truthfulness to being a genuine born-again Christian begs question when the persons confessing their Christianity still nurse urges of their former life.Image

Prophet T.B. Joshua

“You used to be a drunkard or a smoker before or any of those habits but you have become a Christian. You have stopped it but the urge for it is still there. Are you really born again by God’s standard? We know what urge means; tormenting, irritating, very painful, discomforting – distressful. You can regard it as an affliction. In this case, Only God can know if you are not born again. The fact that people do not see you again in your former bad attitude, orientation, character and disposition does not mean you are truly born again. Only God Almighty knows the heart of man,” said the man of God, drawing people’s attention to Matthew 5:8 – “…Blessed are those pure in heart for they shall see God”.

He went on: “Blessed are those who are pure in heart; they shall pray and their prayer shall be answered. Only faith pleases Him. But what is faith? Faith is of man’s heart. Faith in God is of man’s heart not of man’s mind or flesh. Faith must be confessed and faith must be worked out in action.”

Wise Man Harry also delivered an inspiring message on the altar of The SCOAN titled, The New Life. The proof text was Romans 6:3-8. “When we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we were baptised into Christ, we died when He died and therefore, sin’s power over our lives has been broken.

Wise Man Harry

Salvation is to be set free from sin and its penalties. Regaining your freedom, health, blessing is not the only thing, you also need to cast aside your old self, your self-righteousness and your old nature in order to embrace Jesus Christ.”  

The service which was aired live on the church’s channel, Emmanuel TV, was not without amazing testimonies over God’s power in the lives of His people through various mediums of Anointing Water, Anointing Sticker and Emmanuel TV, among others. We bring you a selected few and, as you read, believe that the next testimony shall be yours. Amen!

 

 

Visit me Lord and declare me free – Wiseman Christopher


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

The mighty power of God manifesting itself through healings, deliverance and prophecy, was witnessed at The SCOAN’S last Sunday service broadcast live via Emmanuel TV. Thousands of worshippers from all over the world, who gathered at the church’s headquarters in Lagos, witnessed the power of Christ in action right from the Prayer Line when God Almighty delivered and healed people through the faculties of the wise men. Demons were commanded down to their knees and cast out, in the name of Jesus Christ. Those who came with addictions, afflictions and sicknesses, were declared healed and free Imagethrough the power of the Holy Spirit. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prophesied to the congregation to the glory of the living God. He also drew attention to the day’s message delivered earlier on by Wise Man Christopher entitled: We Need The Corresponding Power. The man of God said the real thing about being a Christian is not ‘the work we do, but the relationship we maintain with God and the atmosphere produced by that relationship’. He said the message, which was drawn from the Acts of the Apostles Chapter 1:4-8, is a clear demonstration that Christians need support from Heaven just as the Lord, Jesus Christ had promised His Apostles the Holy Spirit before they could embark on their commission. He underscored the crux of the message, saying ‘to believe God, is to be under the power of the Holy Spirit’. Prophet T.B. Joshua said: “A proper relationship with God will bring a proper atmosphere.” As is always the case, the service was laced with amazing testimonies from people who had witnessed the touch of the Almighty God in various aspects of their lives. Here are a selected few. Stay blessed:

SYNAGOGUE CHURCH GOES AGOG IN LONDON!


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

AN EARLY START:
Sunday 1st September was a day to remember in SCOAN UK! From as early as 8am, throngs of people began to gather outside the venue in Central London, some who had been travelling from the four corners of the UK and many more who made the journey from other countries just to attend the Anointing Water Service. The atmosphere of faith and expectancy was palpable as a large queue began to form in the chilly hours of the morning, several hours before the service was even due to start!

SCOAN UK Service

By the time the doors were opened, the steady influx of people was nothing short of overwhelming. With the venue holding close to 1000 people quickly filled up, three different overflow points had to be hurriedly arranged. An adjacent hall holding 400 people with a live link to the events of the service was soon flooded with people, as was another hall with close to 200 people, coupled with the foyer area that was further swarming with the excited worshippers. Before the service even had a chance to commence, every possible area where people could gather was occupied and we were physically unable to allow any more people into the venue. For those who arrived late and were unable to enter the service, we do sincerely apologise. Although we were expecting a large crowd, the numbers that arrived exceeded all our expectations!

OVERCOME YOUR DOUBT:Worship
The service began with a time of praise and worship, the pinnacle being a moving classical rendition of the Lord’s Prayer and the beautiful worship song ‘Agnus Dei’, performances that left much of the crowd teary eyed. The worship was followed by the congregation watching a faith-building message from Prophet T.B. Joshua titled, ‘Overcome your doubt.’ He explained in the message, “God does not mind doubt, as long as you are seeking answers from Him in the midst of that doubt. However, doubt can become sin if it leads you away from God to scepticism, cynicism and hard heartedness.” Faith was lifted and hearts were opened.

HEALTH REVIVED, HOPE RESTORED:
Testimony time ensued with two powerful testimonies of people whose lives had been touched in a dramatic way following their coming to The SCOAN and receiving the Anointing Water. First was Alex Jones, a young man from the Isle of Wight who had been suffering from a rare, debilitating and isolating mental condition known as ‘depersonalization disorder’. For six years, he had been practically living alone in his room, completely detached from reality and his once thriving social life. Feeling as if he was not in control of his sensory perceptions, basic tasks such as conversing with people and concentrating on a particular action became burdensome chores. After losing his job as a telecommunications engineer, Alex had been referred to various doctors and psychiatrists in search of a cure. However, he was eventually told that there was nothing more that could be done for him medically after being administered the maximum level of dosage available for the medication he was taking with no seeming improvement or change in symptoms.

Alex Jones Testimony

It was in this condition that Alex stumbled upon a video of Prophet T.B. Joshua on YouTube after doing a general search for deliverance. As he watched clip after clip, something struck a chord within the heart of the young Brit as realisation dawned that his problem was more spiritual than physical and therefore required Divine intervention. Further investigation revealed that SCOAN UK was holding a prayer line service later that month for which he dutifully registered and attended. As Alex was ministered with the Anointing Water, he said he saw light and brightness all around him but it was only when he reached back home that the full extent of the miracle became evident. Praying in his room with the Anointing Sticker, Alex felt a strange sensation within his head, as if someone knocked reality back into place. Purity of vision and clarity of focus was restored in a glorious moment!

The rest is history. For nearly eight months, Alex has been completely free from the mental problem. He has now started work as a film-maker, even receiving international offers of employment and has no more symptoms or signs of the depersonalization disorder. With the full awareness of his doctors, Alex gradually stopped taking his medication to the point where he has not taken any for several months now with no withdrawal symptoms. He advised people to know that when all hope seems lost, there is always hope in Jesus!

BARRENNESS SENT PACKING:
The next testimony was that of Mr & Mrs Michael Mortty who had been barren for six long years. Literally two weeks after getting married, Jane Mortty was confirmed to have multiple fibroids, leading to intense pain especially during her menstrual cycle. The Ghanaian-British couple went through a series of medical tests upon which they were informed the only medical option was for them to undergo artificial insemination. The initial attempt appeared to be successful as Jane fell pregnant only to discover six weeks later that she had an early miscarriage. To complicate matters, the miscarriage appeared seemingly trapped in her womb as the foetus refused to come out, leading the doctors to urgently call for her to be operated upon. Having been introduced to Emmanuel TV by her mum in Ghana at this time, Jane decided to seek Divine intervention. Her mum sent her the Anointing Water by post which finally reached her after an address mix up left it in postal limbo for several weeks. The day she ministered the Anointing Water, she bled heavily as the products of conception came out.

Barrenness Testimony

After this traumatic experience, Jane recounted a dream she had. She found herself in a classroom and saw Prophet T.B. Joshua approaching, accompanied by the five wise men. Upon declaring to them that she was seeking for a child, he told her that God would bring the miracle in His own time and did not require any support. She simply had to leave the issue for Him and exercise patience. It was at this point the duo made a mutual decision of faith – to wait for God’s time. They visited The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria, received the Anointing Water themselves and continued to minister it in faith, thanking God that His promise of fruitfulness would soon unfold in their lives.

It was several months later that the couple both had dreams on the very same night that signalled the end of their barrenness. Jane saw herself undergoing spiritual deliverance in her dream, waking up with the words, ‘Thank You, Jesus’ on her lips and the realisation that something supernatural had just happened. Michael simultaneously dreamed of a Divine encounter where he was told that God had removed the infertile part of his sperm and would be able to impregnate his wife thereafter. A couple of weeks later, Jane was confirmed to be pregnant! What was a medical impossibility had been made possible by the Almighty God. After a smooth pregnancy, Jane delivered a beautiful baby girl, presenting her to the congregation as ‘Elia’. She advised barren couples never to give in to desperation or defeat but to continue to wait on God, having total trust in His perfect plan.

WHEN THE POWER OF GOD IS PRESENT:
Mass Prayer Manifestation
Although Prophet T.B. Joshua was not in physical attendance at the meeting, the power of God flowing through him was extremely evident, especially as the congregation engaged in mass prayer led by the prophet via the huge video screen in the auditorium. As the prayer ensued, buoyed by a public declaration of a decision to follow Jesus, God began to move around the auditorium and people seated in the overflow sections, bringing healing and deliverance in a mighty way. Those under demonic attack and bondage began to manifest as the light of God exposed the darkness hiding in their lives and they fell uncontrollably to the ground. People began to vomit out poisonous substances that had been lurking in their systems. Altogether, the palpable presence of God was clearly seen at work in people’s lives.

THE SECRET OF THE MIRACLES IS JESUS:
With an atmosphere of belief cultivated, it was time for the prayer line to begin. As people came forward and the Anointing Water was ministered, there was instantaneous reaction as the evil spirits behind the misfortunes of people were exposed and expelled! “I am Lucifer; he wants to preach and sing for God. I gave him the spirit of lust,” exclaimed a spirit within a young man who was violently reacting to the prayer with the Anointing Water.

“I made her divorce; she used to beat up her husband,” another spirit lividly cackled upon questioning. “I am the queen of the coast; he is supposed to worship me. I caused setback in his career as a lawyer,” were the words spewing forth from another gentleman. When his wife rushed out from the crowd to confirm the terrible setbacks besetting her husband’s career, she was also ministered with the Anointing Water and manifested herself.

A lady painfully struggled forward, aided by a crutch and wearing a huge clinical boot, following a serious ankle injury coupled with an increasingly worsening case of sciatica. As the Anointing Water was ministered to her, she began to shake uncontrollably. A Divine operation was at work! Declared free in Jesus’ name, the elderly lady jumped to her feet, threw aside her crutch, took off her lumbar corset and began to walk unaided! After removing the clinical boot, the worship team burst out in song and she began to dance, joined by the animated crowd who witnessed the whole miracle! Tearfully testifying, she said it was the first time she had walked freely in 18 months!

Healing In Jesus' NameAnother lady was brought forward wearing a neck collar and evidently in serious pain. The Sierra Leonean explained that she was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis almost a year ago and the pains had steadily increased ever since. She was literally living on painkillers and would often wake up at night sobbing in agonising pain. Her Nigerian husband became her constant carer as she was rendered unable to engage in any household chores or work-related assignments. As the Anointing Water was ministered to her, there was no seeming sign of change. However, upon being declared free, she loosened her neck collar, cast it away and began to move her neck! Shocked at her restored mobility, she looked at her husband and burst into tears. “The pain is gone,” was all she could incoherently mumble as joy and wonder met in a miraculous amalgamation.

It was miracle upon miracle as supernatural healing continued to unfold. Another lady limped into the auditorium, heavily relying on a crutch. Her problems were multiple, including severe osteoarthritis and lumbar spondylosis. Having lost her job as a nurse due to her inability to walk at work, she explained the pain was both intense and immense. As the Anointing Water was ministered, the reaction was unexpected! An evil spirit within her growled angrily, stating that it was the cause of her ailment and indeed the afflictions of the entire family. After her deliverance, she rose up without the crutch and began to walk freely! As the cause of her problem had been exposed through deliverance, instant healing followed and she danced in the auditorium, much to the delight of the enthralled crowd.

CONNECTED IN THE OVERFLOW
Everyone in attendance at the service received prayer with the Anointing Water, including those in the overflow sections. The evangelists moved amidst the crowd ministering Anointing Water into bottles of water people had faithfully brought, as well as into their mouths. The service closed at 5:30pm, people returning to their destinations in thanksgiving for the service they had been part of. Indeed, what a God we have to worship; what a Son we have to praise; what a future lies before us! A million thanks are not enough, except to say, ‘Thank You, Jesus!’.

If you have a testimony to share after attending this service or being prayed for in the prayer line, please contact us on uk@scoan.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

The British Now Recognises TB Joshua – UK Guardian News paper


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

Following Yesterday Prophet TB Joshua’s SCOAN London Anointing water service held yesterday with over 3000 peoples in Central London, Over 15.000 in his Ghana branch and millions over the glued to their TV sets watching His TV Station, broadcasting the service from Lagos, the Guardian News paper one of the biggest news papers in the UK has has hit the nail on the head in the story below:

In Africa’s largest metropolis, the district of Ikotun Egbe has turned into a boom town. The draw? Temitope Balogun Joshua, one of Nigeria’s richest “super-pastors”, whose church attracts 50,000 worshippers weekly – more than the combined number of visitors to Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.

Seeking promises of prosperity and life-changing spiritual experiences, visitors flock from around the globe. Enterprising Lagos residents – those not turfed out by landlords turning their properties into hotels – have transformed the rundown area into a hotbed of business.

On a Saturday afternoon, traffic swirls around the four-storey, giant-columned Synagogue Church of All Nations. Delegates are pouring in for the following day’s service. “They should really build a branch in South Africa – it’s a long way to come and the hotels here are so-so,” says Mark, a sunburnt businessman from Johannesburg, accompanied by two friends from Botswana.

As the church’s palm tree-lined entrance gives way to a maze of skinny, unpaved roads, knots of touts materialise. “In one year I made enough money to buy my first car,” says Chris, using a tattered hotel brochure to mop his brow. He is paid 100 naira (about 40p) for each client he brings in.

Sparkling new hotels rise incongruously among the shacks. At one, with a logo suspiciously similar to the Sheraton’s, a new chef has recently been employed. “He can cook food from Singapore, because we were having a lot of guests from there who struggle with Nigerian food,” says the manager, Ruky, at a reception desk framed by pictures of Joshua.

Tony Makinwa says most of his laundromat profits come from tourists. “God has favoured my business. People come here and fall in love with the place and overstay their visits,” he says.

Also doing a roaring trade are the international calling centres with foreign visitor discounts, clothes shops offering outfits to celebrate miracles, and the plastic chair rentals that cater for church overspill.

The area’s dirt streets are punctured by unfinished, barnlike buildings as dozens of other churches offer all-day worship services. Almost as many mosques dot the area. Islam and Christianity are growing at blistering paces across Africa, with Nigeria home to the continent’s most populous mix of both faiths.

Money-changer Sidi Bah has travelled thousands of miles from Mali to continue his trade here. “I came because I heard many people from many countries visit. In one day I can change six or seven different types of currency,” he says. “There are more mosques here than in my village in [Muslim] Mali.”

Miracle-promising Pentecostal churches took root across the continent in the 1980s, as African economies were battered by falling world commodity prices. Migrants poured into slums in search of jobs and dreams.

Ruky has converted her cramped home into a 20-bed lodging where mainly rural workers stay for 800 naira a night. Mattresses are half price. “If you are sick like me, you have no job, so you are used to sleeping on the floor anyhow,” says Andrew Olagbele, whose spine was crushed by a car accident, lying on a mattress in a crammed room. “I pray the Lord will touch me tomorrow so I can walk again.”

As dusk sets in, cars continue streaming in. A man hanging from the open door of a car thundering gospel songs waves copies of homemade CDs for sale. Denis Kokou and his wife, a baby on her hip, look on with weary smiles. “This is our first time coming from [regional neighbour] Togo. We are so happy to be here with our daughter.”

BIG CONFESSION – We have no evidence against TB Joshua…


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

After years of slander and defamation, T. B. Joshua Watch finally agrees there is no evidence to support their claim of sexual abuse charges against T.B. Joshua. This is funny considering the fact that they have heaped invectives, called him names and I am wondering why they have not rendered a formal apology to the man of God. In their latest article they said:

‘We’re not saying these allegations are definitely true – we’d have no evidence to support that claim.’

If they claim there is indeed no evidence to support their claims why are they now saying the allegations must be ‘investigated?’  If they have evidence it is incumbent upon them to provide them to the police to investigate because you cannot investigate anything without evidence.

They must for once keep their mouths shut and concentrate on building their lives instead of becoming permanent bloggers. If their aim is to destroy the man of God then they have failed in their venture.

False News TB Joshua Did NOT Prophesied Spain VS Nigeria OUTCOME

We are very surprise to see many online news sites, blogs and social forum sites claiming Prophet TB Joshua had prophesied that Spain will beat Nigeria 8 nil.

The information circulating on the internet are NOT true and would like ALL who have posted such news on their site to remove them as TB Joshua has NOT said anything regarding the outcome of the upcoming game.
