Life took on new meaning for the new convert as he now immersed himself totally in the work of God. The zeal for God became a consuming passion, and everything concerning him began to take a new turn. The difference between life as a Church goer and as a born-again Christian and child of God became manifestly clear. He put God first in everything and became baptised by immersion in water in September 1973.
As a worker in the church, he labored assiduously to propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ through his personal life, evangelism, crusades etc. It was therefore no surprise when two years later on September 14, 1975, he was ordained with four other men of God, as a Pastor of the church. By this time, in view of his ability at interpreting, he had also become the English language interpreter to the General Superintendent, whose sermon was given in Yoruba language.
To test their new faith in the Lord, and standing upon His promises, the Pastor’s wife who had been asked to stop bearing children became pregnant again. In the fullness of her term, she was delivered of a baby boy in 1978 at the church’s maternity center in Ebute-Metta, Lagos. The baby, which came against medical advice was delivered naturally by the Church’s midwives and was named OLUWADAMILARE. This miracle birth was a source of joy to the couple and they never tired of showing him off to friends and family as a physical manifestation of God’s faithfulness to those who serve him in spirit and in truth.
A second miracle baby followed in 1982 through the same process of natural delivery, at the same maternity center of the church and by the same church midwives. The baby, named OLUWAGBEMILEKE became the final confirmation by the couple tot heir friends that with God nothing shall be impossible, and that when you are totally committed to and dependent on God, He will not let you down.
At the Holy Ghost service of January 1997, the GO gave a personal testimony about total dependence on God, which related to his first miracle child. He recalled that when in 1981 the baby fell ill he prayed, fasted, spoke in tongues and generally travailed for the child to no effect. In fact, the condition of the child worsened as day after day, the baby refused to eat. On the tenth day, contrite and utterly broken, he now besought the face of the Lord, “Daddy, why have you refused to heal my child?” God replied him, “Since he is your child, you heal him yourself”. “Well in that case, recanted the man of God, “Daddy, heal your child”. And to the glory of God, in a moment of time the child had started playing and hungering for food.
