The team got to Lome on Monday night; they were met at the airport by Mama Stephanie Hopeson and her team and they were taken to their hotel.
Rev. Olatona, the following day, was invited to speak at the Students’ Closing meeting at the Faith Towers Bible Institute; and he spoke briefly on the topic PERSONAL GROWTH AND PERSONAL GOALS.
Rev. David Olatona started by saying that becoming a man of God requires that you have to go through the Bible school. For 3 and half years, he went through a Bible School, studied and graduated; and he has been to other several Bible Schools after then. Doctors, lawyers, engineers go through school to become professionals; why shouldn’t pastors go through school to become good at what God has called them to do. The time spent in a Bible School is an investment. Knowledge acquired is never wasted because the knowledge you acquire will one day be required. It is only what you have that you can give and what you don’t have, you can’t give. What is worth doing is worth doing well.
He started his exhortation proper by reading Matthew 23:25-28; like the scribes and Pharisees mentioned in that scripture passage, a lot of pastors and leaders are particular about their personal goals instead of their personal growth – they pursue their dreams, visions, ambitions, how they want to run their ministries, the kind of clothes they want to wear, the cars they want to drive, shoes they want to wear, etc. – many pay attention to looking good on the outside, not giving attention to the inside. No matter how good you are on the outside, if you are not good on the inside, your outside will pull down the inside. If you pursue personal goals it will invariably affect your personal growth and vice versa. If the inside is clean, the outside will be clean. As you pursue to grow your ministries, pursue also to grow yourself. Just because you are anointed doesn’t mean you can’t fall. The people that will last in ministry are not the ones who are gifted but the ones that have groomed themselves.
Anyone that operates in the fruits of the Spirit talked about in Galatians 5:22 will be doing a lot to help themselves in personal growth; the Bible actually says that “against such there is no law.”
To develop your personal growth,
- GIVE CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE WORD OF GOD. Don’t read the word of God because you want to preach it, read the word of God to feed yourself. Whatever you give to the people should be from the abundance of your heart.
- GIVE ATTENTION TO PRAYER. Create time to have personal time of prayer where you communicate with God alone; because if your message is not born out of prayer, it is merely theory.
- GIVE ATTENTION TO HOLY WALK. Walking holy before God and man is highly necessary. You might make mistakes but don’t sit with it.
- LOVE THE PEOPLE. People don’t care how much you know, but how much you care.
- YOUR MINISTRY SHOULD INCLUDE TEACHING, PREACHING AND REBUKING. If there is a wrong-doing, confront it, because what you do not confront, you cannot complain about! Whatever you don’t confront it means you allowed it. And when the need to rebuke arises, do so in the open and in secret, depending on the situation.
- BE A GIVER. Many ministers are poor because they are always receiving and not giving. If your members are always giving you, as a pastor you will be at the bottom. Give according to your level and the best of your ability and capability.
- BUILD STRONG RELATIONSHIPS. The Bible says iron sharpeneth iron and evil communication corrupts good manners. Friendship is by choice, and as a leader and pastor, you must choose and build your relationships wisely, because there are times where you will be discouraged and you need people around you.
- Three principles that should govern relationships – fellowship with all, partner with some, build on sons.
- HONOUR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER: Whether natural/biological or spiritual parents. Honouring them attaches two blessings – you will live long, and you will prosper. The greatest thing you can give to the one God has blessed you is to honour them. As you try to grow your ministry also grow yourself. Grace will bring you to the top but character will keep you there.
On Wednesday night, the first Success Encounter Night took place at the EGLISE DU MINISTERE DE LA FOI, Casablanca. Rev. Olatona preached on the topic “IT IS YOUR TIME TO BE REMEMBERED”. Bible reference was taken from Acts 10:1-10. His preaching went thus:
When we read and study the Bible, we come across verses that say “And God remembered Noah…” “And God remembered His covenant with Abraham…” “And God remembered Abraham, Isaac and Jacob…” What does it mean for God to remember someone or something?
When God remembers someone, there are a couple of things it could it mean:
IT MEANS IT IS TIME FOR GOD TO ACT: God had been speaking to Pharaoh through Moses to let the Israelites go, but Pharaoh turned a deaf ear. Then God decided to act, He passed through Egypt and acted on the firstborns of everything they had. When God acted that night, Pharaoh couldn’t hold the Israelites anymore. When God remembers, nothing can stop or get in the way of His people! The Red Sea could not stop the Israelites, just like the Pharaoh could not stop them anymore or any longer. Sometimes God might be quiet, but it doesn’t mean God has forgotten. You may be down and the devil is up, it does not mean the devil has won. When God finally shows up, because you’re His child, God will still declare you the winner.
IT MEANS GOD DECIDED TO STEP IN ON BEHALF OF HIS PEOPLE: God told Abraham his children would go into slavery for 400 years; and the Israelites were in Egypt for 400 years. However, when their set time came, God sent Moses to Pharaoh; when Pharaoh was told that the Israelite people wanted to serve God, Pharaoh said “which God?” At that point, God decided to step in and show the Egyptians who the God of the Israelites is!
IT MEANS GOD HAS DECIDED TO MOVE IN RESPONSE TO HIS PEOPLE’S HEARTFELT CRIES AND PRAYERS: In the book of I Samuel chapter 1, we read of a man called Elkanah who had 2 wives – Peninnah and Hannah. Peninnah mocked barren Hannah with her many children. The Bible says year after year, Hannah would not eat nor drink but wept; until one particular year, one particular day, Hannah decided to eat and then go to the temple to pour out her heart to God again. That day, the priest Eli thought she was drunk, but she told him she was merely pouring out her heart to God; and that day, since she had been going to the temple, Eli prophesied into her life, “the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him…” Vs. 19 tells us that “… the Lord remembered her”. God finally gave ear to her sorrowful cries and prayers! And out of the womb that had been shut up for years, came the great prophet Samuel!
In Acts 10, we read of a man called Cornelius, the Bible tells us he was “a devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always.”
All the while, God took note of all what he was doing. God took note of it. Then God showed up and said, “Cornelius, thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.” That God didn’t do anything to change your circumstance does not mean He doesn’t hear you, it simply means there is a set time and season for everything.
In vs. 5, God sent him to Joppa to meet Peter; while Cornelius was getting ready with his servants, God went ahead before him to speak with Peter in a vision, because naturally, Peter would have considered Cornelius “unclean” and treated him offhandedly because he was not a saved man; but God turned Peter’s heart in that vision. When God decides to step in on your case, He doesn’t need any permission to do so. God did not leave the destiny of Cornelius to the hands of Peter, God decided it himself. Every time God remembers you, He moves both the heavens and earth to do what He wants to do for you. Peter paid full attention to Cornelius and his men when they arrived. When God remembers a man, all the cameras are on him.
Rev. Olatona ended this session by praying and prophesying into the lives of the people.
On Thursday, 16th October 2014, the first School of Leadership session was taken by Rev. Olatona, and took his teaching from Matt. 25: 14-30. The topic of his teaching was STEWARDSHIP: SAVED TO SERVE. His teaching went thus:
You and I are saved to serve; we are all and should be stewards in God’s house. A steward is the person entrusted with another person’s property; an administrator; an attendant; a servant; an agent; a waiter; a representative; a hostess.
Having known the meaning of who a steward is, we must then know that we are all stewards.
WHY ARE WE STEWARDS?
JOHN 3:27. There is nothing we came to this world with; we came to the world small and naked. The gifts and talents we possess were given by God, the strength we have to run around is not ours – all that we have is given to us by God; and because God gave all these things to us, we are expected to use them for God and be His stewards.
WHAT IS REQUIRED OF A STEWARD?
I COR. 4:1, 2. Paul, here, was speaking by the Holy Spirit; he says we should be considered as stewards of the mysteries of God. No matter what anyone does in church that causes wonder, he/she is only a servant of God; because there is nothing anyone has that he has not received – whether it was learnt or born with; it is all still given by God.
As a steward of Christ then, it is fundamentally required from us to be faithful. To be faithful is to be loyal, dependable, straight, reliable and steadfast in allegiance. An unfaithful person cannot be relied upon in troubling times (Prov. 25: 19). When you are unfaithful, you give severe pain to the one that has trust in you. Therefore, it is important that we must be faithful.
Luke 12: 42-48 tells us that a faithful steward is the one who, when his master comes, is doing what he’s supposed to. This steward is the one that will be rewarded. The other kind of steward is the one that says because his master is not there; he can do what he wants and beat his subordinates. This unfaithful steward, his master comes unexpectedly and he’s rewarded in the way of the unbeliever.
Punishment of the Unfaithful Steward
The servant that knows his master’s will and does not support and do it will be beaten with many stripes; and the servant that does not know his master’s will and commits the things worthy of stripes shall be beaten with few stripes. This tells us that there is no excuse for misbehaviour. Whether you know or not the will of your master, if you do something wrong, you will be beaten. Too whom much is given, much is expected.
THREE LEVELS OF FAITHFULNESS
The beginning stage where God tests our faithfulness is in the “least”. God tests us in the least things; in things that seem to be of the lowest degree, next to nothing and unimportant. He who is faithful in the least things will be faithful in much. Many may find some of the responsibilities assigned to them as “gutter tasks”, but the truth is “if you cannot clean the gutter, you cannot clean the altar”.
The second stage is faithfulness with the unrighteous mammon – MONEY. People go through trouble because they are not faithful with money. Until you are faithful with money, you cannot be trusted with true riches. To be truly rich is to have things money cannot buy – joy, peace, good health, life etc., and they come only from God. This is where the issue of tithing comes in; if you are not tithing, you are not faithful.
The third stage is faithfulness with another man’s things. If you are unfaithful with something that is another’s, who will give you your own? Whatever you cannot take, do not give it. The question is, that thing you are given to handle now, will you handle it the same way if it were yours?
“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” II Tim. 2: 1, 2
The Skill Acquisition session started immediately, and the participants were taught how to make Stain Removal, Toilet Wash, Air Freshener and Body Perfume.
The second Success Night took place later that evening; Rev. Olatona continued his preaching on the topic, “IT IS YOUR TIME TO BE REMEMBERED”. He took his Bible reference was taken from Genesis 40:14-15 and Isaiah 49:15-16.
Isaiah 49: 15 tells us that a woman can forget to have compassion her sucking child, but God’s promise for us is that He will never forget us; the enemy wants us to believe that God had forgotten us, but God say in that vs. 16 of that chapter that He has us graven on the palm of His hands!
Following the story of the Israelites, in the book of Genesis, when they had stayed 390 years in Egypt, God raised Moses to deliver them. At this time that Moses first showed up for the deliverance of Israel, they did not realise that this could have been their deliverance; they asked Moses who made him judge over them? So he returned to the wilderness. Israel spent extra 30 years in Egypt. But 40 years later (Moses was 80 years old and Israel had been slaves in Egypt for 430 years), God sent Moses again to them and this time they were set free! God kept his promise. If God can keep his promise of 430 years, then He can do keep whatever promise He has made to us. God works with set time, Psalms 102:13 says “Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come”. God will surely and fulfil when your set time has come.
It took a while for Joseph’s dreams and all God’s plan for him to fall into place. Joseph had his first dream in Genesis 37:6-8. In Verse 9, he had another dream that he would rule over his parents, and not just his brothers only. His dreams birthed envy and hatred towards him from his brothers, and we all read of how he was sold into slavery, how he worked in Potiphar’s house and how he eventually ended up in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. All these events made it look like God had forgotten him and that his dreams would never come true.
In prison, Joseph encountered the butler and the baker and he interpreted both their dreams; his interpretation was spot on and even though he asked the butler not to forget him, the butler forgot him for two full years. When it seems like you have been forgotten, God is preparing and carefully setting in place your period of upliftment! The truth is if the butler had remembered Joseph and had spoken to Pharaoh about him at that time, his destiny would have been aborted! Joseph could have been pardoned and sent back to his country or returned back to being a slave, but God waited.
In Genesis 41:1-11, when it was Joseph’s set time, God visited the Pharaoh in his bedroom. He gave him a dream that troubled him. None of Pharaoh’s wise men, magicians and counsellors could interpret the dream! It was at that moment that God awakened the butler’s memory! It was at this point that he spoke and told the Pharaoh about Joseph. When God decides to remember you, He creates a problem only you can solve!
In verse 14, “then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph”. Joseph was HASTILY brought out of the dungeon, he was shaved (a sign that he was no longer a slave), and his raiment was changed. The only person between Joseph and his breakthrough was Pharaoh. When God remembers you, He links you up with the person that has the key to your breakthrough.
The dream of Genesis 37:6-9 was fulfilled in Genesis 41. Joseph was able to interpret Pharaoh’s dream; and this started the fulfilment of his dreams. In the land of Egypt there had never been a deputy Pharaoh but because of Joseph, that position was created. When God remembers you, an office that has never existed before can be created for your sake!
In one night, Joseph’s story changed! It takes God only an instant to turn your circumstance around. The previous night Joseph was in prison, the following morning he was in the palace with Pharaoh! Genesis 41:38-46.
There was a delay in the life of Hannah, but when Samuel finally came, he became a great prophet that anointed two kings of Israel – Saul and David. Elizabeth and Zachariah had a delay, but when God remembered them, he gave them John the Baptist who came and announced the coming of Jesus! When there is a delay in our lives, it is not because God is denying us but because something big is coming.
Rev. Olatona ended his preaching that night with prophetic declarations and a worship session.
On Friday, 17th October 2014, Rev. Olatona held another School of Leadership session, and he titled his teaching “TEN PRINCIPLES OF STEWARDSHIP, FROM MATTHEW 25: 14-30”. The principles are:
- vs. 14 – God owns everything; whatever you have, it is God that gave it to you, and it all belongs ultimately to Him. If you have the understanding that you are not the owner of all you have, then you can use them to please the Owner; you will be able to live your life in accordance to the will of the Person that gave it to you.
- vs. 15 – God will not give you more than you can handle. God knows what we were born to do; so He gave us what we need to do what we were born to do. There is no one that God did not give something. We should not try to be somebody else; instead we should be who/what God created/gifted us to be.
- God never created anyone empty. God gave everyone something, in spite of race, colour, gender etc. we are all created in God’s image, and His image can never be empty.
- vs. 19 – You must know that one day, you will give account of your stewardship. There is a day of settling of account; the One who gave you will ask you to give account of how you used what He gave you.
- vs. 21 – Faithfulness in little things will result in promotion. Faithfulness in the talents and gifts that God gave us makes room for Him to give us more. Psa. 75: 6, 7.
- vs. 24 – Lack of faithfulness causes demotion and reduction. Most people are not faithful because they have excuses; for instance, the steward who was given one talent. In these modern times, people come up with trivial excuses such as “they didn’t make me a Deacon”. There is no legitimate excuse why you should not be faithful, whatever needs to be done must be done – enough with the excuses!
- vs. 26 – The one who is not faithful, God calls him “wicked and lazy”. When you are unfaithful, as long as God is concerned, you are wicked and lazy; and the Bible tells us that there is no peace for the wicked (Isa. 48: 22), the wicked shall be cut-off (Psa. 37: 9), and that the lazy will not prosper (Prov. 10: 4).
- vs. 28, 29 – God will always take opportunities from the unfaithful and give it to the faithful. Therefore, so that God will not take what He has given us, we must be faithful!
- vs. 30 – Every unfaithful steward will end up in regret.
- vs. 27 – As a steward, God wants us to be productive and profitable. God wants us to multiply what He gave us. In the mind of God, what He gave us is enough to produce results, and if we do not produce these expected results, it is not the devil’s fault or God’s, it is ours! If we don’t use what God gave us, it will remain dormant.
This session ended with prayers; and the Skill Acquisition class for the day started immediately. The participants were taught how to produce Disinfectant, Insecticide, Hair and Body Cream.
In the evening, the final Success Night for the Togo Mission 2014 commenced, and Rev. Olatona concluded his teaching on the topic “IT IS YOUR TIME TO BE REMEMBERED”. Bible references were Job 5: 12 and Daniel 11:14.
In the book of Esther, we read of how Haman developed hatred for Mordecai because Mordecai refused to bow to him; Haman saw Mordecai’s attitude as an act of disrespect and, together with his wife, hatched the plan to kill Mordecai. Not only did was he determined to kill Haman, he was determined to kill all his people, all the Jews in the land. Mordecai heard of these plans and grieved; he sent word to Esther to make supplication for her people, but Esther was too scared and sent word back to Mordecai that whoever goes before the king uninvited could be killed. But Mordecai was not swayed by her fear, as a matter of fact he sent word to her again that if she refuses to go see the king, first, she herself will not escape the looming genocide; and second, if she refuses to go see the king for help, God will raise help for the Jews elsewhere! It takes a man who knows God never leaves His people to tell someone “if you don’t want to help us, someone else will help us”.
The story goes on to tell us how Esther braved up and went to face the king while the Jews fasted and prayed for favour; and the Bible tells us that Esther did find favour in the sight of the king to the point that the king offered her up to half of his kingdom thrice!
Meanwhile, Haman was still hatching plans to kill the Jews; in fact, his wife Zeresh and his friends had helped him map out a plan that would involve Mordecai being hanged on a gallows fifty cubits high. Haman was very pleased with this plan, and for the first time in a long time, he went to bed happy that night because he thought he was finally getting rid of his enemy, Mordecai! Little did he know that that would be his last sleep!
While Haman was sleeping, God entered into the palace and went to the king. God made the king restless, because the One who gives sleep took sleep away from the king’s eyes! The king, unable to sleep, asked that the book of records of the chronicles be read to him. This was how he found out that Mordecai had saved him once from being killed, and had not been rewarded for his kind act. On the morning Haman came to ask for Mordecai’s head, God put it in the king’s heart to reward Mordecai for saving the king’s life! Before Haman could open his mouth to make his request known, God shut him up with a shocker! The gallows he had prepared for Mordecai was the same gallows he was hung on! When it seems like the enemy has dug a pit for you to put you in, God will send help and deliverance to you!
Rev. Olatona ended this session with series of prophetic declarations and prayers for the people; he also involved Apostle Nove and Pastor Ambroise in praying for the people on this last success night for the Abidjan mission.
On Saturday, 18th October 2014, the final School of Leadership class took place. Rev. Olatona did a summary of all the previous teachings, then commenced to his topic for the day “AREAS WHERE GOD REQUIRES YOUR STEWARDSHIP”.
IN OUR FINANCES: One of the things that contest for the place of God in our lives is MONEY. Most people have the mentality that “I worked for it, why should I give others?” The God we serve is a jealous God, and if we respect money more than Him, He will be angry.
WHAT DOES GOD EXPECT YOU TO DO WITH YOUR MONEY?
- GIVE TITHES AND OFFERINGS: 3: 8-10. Tithe is ten percent of our income/profit. The sin of one man (Achan) in Joshua 7 brought defeat for the whole nation of Israel, because they did not obey the law of tithing. If you are not tithing, you are sinning. Tithing began even before Moses; Abraham in Gen. 14, went to war when he heard his nephew Lot had been captured; on his way back, after he had won and taken spoils from the battle, he met Melchizedek and gave him the tithe of his spoils; Melchizedek in turn gave him the bread and wine – a sign of communion; and the Bible calls the communion table, a table of blessing. This means Abraham was blessed for giving tithe. Many are poor because they do not tithe. Jacob made a vow with God, on the night he slept and dreamt of angels, that he would give tithe; and afterwards, everything his uncle Laban did to make him small, failed! This was because Jacob was working with the covenant of tithing, and as a result he became so wealthy that Laban and his children became envious. If you are not tithing, you attract curse; your tithing is the foundation of your blessing.
Prov. 3: 8 says to honour the Lord with our substance; when you tithe weekly/monthly, you are telling God that He went with you throughout the week/month and you have brought His portion for going with you; but if you do not give Him, you are robbing Him of His portion. If you are not tithing, life will be tight! Do not let anyone deceive you that you are giving to your pastor, God is the One you are giving to.
About Offerings: There are some offerings you will give that God will not accept. No one will give a goat with one eye to his President; but most of us treat God like He’ll take anything. We must realise that we are giving to God, not a dog. Do not give to God as if He is begging. Luke 6: 38. Do not give God what you cannot receive yourself. Sometimes we give just anything because we do not prepare our offerings before coming to church; we save money to buy clothes, cars, but we do not save to give offering because we think “anything goes!” Anything does not go, set something aside every week for offering; because one of the ways to attract God is through our giving. If you are not a giver, you cannot receive; if you do not give to God, you will be depriving yourself of the next level of blessing.
- SUSTAIN OUR FAMILIES: After God, our families follow. God expects us to support our families. I Tim. 5: 8. As a man and woman working, after giving God His portion, give to your family. As a wife/husband, you have the responsibility of sustaining your family. Do not let your family starve or go without good clothes. Provide for and support your family. When people see your family, let them see that they are well taken care of. And as long as there is no room for “house-husband”, there should be no room for “house-wife”, women must find something to do with their hands! That is why skill acquisition is important! Also, couples should bring to this world the number of children they can take care of; do not bring anyone into this world to suffer, or for your relatives to cater for!
- SUPPORT KINGDOM PROJECTS: Church buildings are an example of kingdom projects. If as human we cannot live in uncompleted buildings, God must not be put in an uncompleted building.
- GIVE TO THE POOR: Jesus said the poor will always be amongst us, and because they are poor and can hardly cater for themselves, we must help them! Prov. 28: 27. The one that gives to the poor is borrowing God, and will surely be paid back.
- GIVE PROPHET OFFERINGS: We must give to our sincere pastors; if your pastor is suffering, you will suffer. Take good care of your pastors. The Shunnamite woman gave to the prophet Elijah, she and her husband even built a room for him at the top of the building, and they were blessed because they made the man of God comfortable – they gave him food and gave him a place to rest. This woman had done something to provoke God’s blessings and because of this, whether her faith was intact or not concerning the fruit of the womb, God blessed her still with a child. We must learn to give first-fruits and offerings to our pastors and spiritual fathers. Every time our pastor is happy, we will be happy. God’s grace comes upon those that give to Him and to His servants.
- INVEST YOUR MONEY WISELY: Trade and do business with your money. All the other ways to use our money discussed above attract God’s blessings, while this particular point of investing money wisely involves what we engage our hands in; and after giving to God, our pastors, the poor, kingdom projects and families, the result blessing of will come and rest on the work of our hands and the things we invest our money on.
WITH OUR GIFTS: Every person has both natural gifts (also known as talents) and spiritual gifts (given to us by the Holy Spirit). God expects us to use our natural gifts to serve Him. Many do things outside with their talents and make money with them, but they do not use them in their churches because they will not be paid; hence the church is lacking. Talents should not be used for monetary purposes only, but also for God. I Pet. 4: 10; Exo. 31: 2-5. What is your natural gift? Are you using it to make a difference in the kingdom of God? Serve God with your natural gifts!
Spiritual gifts are to be used to serve people. God did not give you the gift of healing, faith, prophecy, tongues and interpretation for yourself; He gave you because of others! Use your spiritual gifts as a blessing for others. Rom. 12: 6, 7. If you have the gift of healing, for example, you can start hospital ministrations. Using these gifts will help people believe in the Jesus that you serve!
WITH OUR TIME: We all have 24 hours in a day; the time God has given us is between the time we were born and the time we die. Time cannot be stored or locked up in a room; time cannot be stopped and time cannot be stretched. Your time is your life, and your life is your asset; do not let anyone waste or spend time for you! Your time is what has been given to you to fulfil you purpose on earth. Eccl. 3: 1; Psa. 90: 12. God expects us to invest our time wisely, because our time is what we trade for our purpose. Be faithful with your time, buy opportunities and plan your life.
WITH OUR BODIES: Our body, which is the temple of the Holy Ghost, must be given to God for His use. Rom. 6: 12, 13; 12: 1. Our bodies are a living sacrifice to God; if we give our body to sin then we are letting the devil own it. We must give our bodies to righteousness and to God. Also, keep your body healthy, do not eat too much of everything, exercise regularly. No matter how much your spirit is willing, if your body collapses, the spirit will disappear. To keep our spirit, we must sustain our bodies. Go for regular medical check-ups, work out, rest, even Jesus rested! Without the body, the spirit cannot operate!
Rev. Olatona ended this session by praying for the people. The skill acquisition training followed immediately and participants were taught how to produce Liquid Soap.
All participants of both the leadership and vocational training were awarded certificates of participation later that night.
The Success in Life Summit in Casablanca, Lome-Togo thus came to an end. Rev. Olatona however, attended and preached at the EGLISE DU MINISTERE DE LA FOI the following Sunday. Testimonies were also taken during the service. Click here to read the testimonies!
