Speech by AMF Leadership

“Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.
AMF also needs that apostolic prayer.

Our contributions of any kind to this organization are not to any man but to the Chief Shepherd Himself.
Therefore, let us not be lazy but let us work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically and with every fiber of our being, knowing fully well that we shall receive the reward if we faint not according to Gal. 6:9.
We were not selected to run the affairs of this organization; you voted us in. Anyone else could have been here to do what we are doing but for the grace of God and your confidence in us.
We promise we will not disappoint you. Welcome to our 17th Anniversary thanksgiving celebrations 2023. Thank you.”

Lecture by Pastor Michael Dada

 

Pastor Michael Dada delivered an insightful lecture on the theme “Rising above Limitations,” drawing inspiration from Job 14:1, where it is emphasized that everyone faces problems.He highlighted that limitations, often viewed as stumbling blocks, hinder individuals from accomplishing their vision, manifesting as constraints, obstacles, and barriers.

Pastor Dada delved into the reasons for limitations, emphasizing that they help direct our actions, define our true identity, focus on things that matter, and spur creativity.
Turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones, he referenced Romans 8:37, encouraging all to rise above limitations, and Romans 18:29, illustrating the concept of leaping over challenges.
He concluded with 2nd Timothy 1:7, asserting that fear should have no place in overcoming limitations.

Afterwards,  he then handed over the microphone to Pastor Sam Ore who took the center stage and then delivered a powerful prayer ministration that reverberated with the audience.

Mere words alone are not enough to describe this experience.
