Tell me do you love this family? I love this family of God, so closely knitted into one…NCCF will never die Halleluyah…Cheer up brethren the Word works.
The last time I sang this song was about four years ago, but here was I in the midst of corps members holding hands and flinging legs as the NCCF anthem was being sang in the family house. As part of my visit to Ekiti State, I visited the NCCF Family house in Iye-Ekiti Ilejemeje LGA. This was a newly rented family house as they had moved from the previous family house.
Hours ago, as I was about going to the family house, I had asked myself, “How they would accept me?” It had been ages since I talked with anyone from NCCF Ilejemeje zone. I was preparing myself for an onslaught of questions and explanations. I was taken to the house by a motorcycle and when I got there, I introduced myself to the family and the Zonal Coordinator (papa) Alabi Oluwadamilola Jeremiah was immediately called and the welcome was heartwarming. There were no questions, just stories and flashbacks.
During my time in NCCF, I served as the prayer secretary of the zone and I noticed our enlargement photograph was hung in the sitting room of the family house. When I was serving we had only one enlargement photograph (only the executives that received us) but now the photographs were numerous and in fact now underneath each photograph was a phone number, ours had no phone numbers underneath, perhaps that was why we could not be contacted easily.
I was taken to the site for the family house building a building we had tried to put up during our time, so that when corps members were posted to Ilejemeje LGA, they would have where to rest their head. It had gotten to the lintel level a far improvement from where we left it, but more work still has to be done as funds for the building project which is powered by ex NCCF members is no longer coming as before; we need to complete this building.
I spent the night in the family house and I must confess, I cherished every minute I spent there and the reception was great. The next morning I joined them in the usual Morning Prayer; it was indeed an honour talking and praying with them that morning. I truly appreciate you my brethren, truly the Word works.
Keep doing good in your little corner, keep touching lives, keep being relevant, you were not created just to be a passerby, don’t waste this one year, invest in your life and that of others, learn new skills, touch one life, be a reason someone who cannot pay you wakes up every morning with a smile and says thank God, know God for yourself.
Thank you to every member of NCCF Ilejemeje Zone and God bless you loads.
