To be honest I hadn’t realized, when I introduced the idea of sharing book reviews with you, that many of my readers are in places around the world where hard copies of books are not readily available. But God, who always provides, brought me a contact from a young woman in Nigeria who has launched an amazing ministry facilitating the availability of soundly Biblical Christian books. And, she provides a platform for sharing and discussing such books with other Christians. It occurred to me that she is using modern technology in a ministry based on the faith and fervor of the First Century Church. I wanted to introduce her to you.
Below, I am sharing an introductory email I received from her after I asked her about her ministry and it is followed by her more formal introduction of her website. I find it encouraging that such a strong young Christian is moving in Kingdom building ways. Ogo writes:
About my ministry? When I started this outreach, I never considered that people will ever refer to it as my ministry, it still sounds strange to me because i am just a stay home mom with 5 young children, all under 10 years old. I am in my early thirties.
I got married at 22 years and things were tough for us for the ﬁrst few years. Children did not start coming as soon as we hoped and our ﬁnancial means were limited. However, I have a good heritage of faith in God. My late Dad (who is now in heaven) prayed all six of his children into the kingdom, and taught us God’s Word.
So the only thing I had was God and his Word to rely on, so I threw myself into it. Shortly after, I was introduced to a website www.mannareserve.org where I found books with Biblical teaching from strong “Word of Faith” ministers like Kenneth E. Hagin, Charles Capps the Copelands, and Norvel Hayes.
I began to learn that you can have what you say; you can speak to the mountain; you are the prophet of your own life; God can turn it around; the tongue is a creative force, etc, etc. It was a turning point of my life, I’ve been on it for years and years because I also learnt that in consistency lies the power. Things started changing, children started coming and so on… we’re not yet there but we’ve definitely left where we use to be.
I am conﬁdent that God’s Word is ﬁnal authority, and my approach to it is now much of a conﬁdent expectation and not mere religion.
At some point I felt the need to start sharing with others because truthfully the word of faith message is a whole lot different from what I’ve been used to.
I didn’t know how to go about it, but God gave me a platform on WhatsApp (we use this app a lot over here, and it can be easily downloaded on google playstore or apple store). I created a FAITH THINZ BOOKCLUB group where we share and review faith books daily. God is Blessing it and we’ve grown to 10 different groups with a minimum of 200 participants in each group. Visit www.faith-thinz.org One of these groups is our “365 Days of Healing and health”, where we teach on God’s will for our healing and health and how to heal the sick. We also pray for the sick there. Another of our group is “365 Days of Prosperity”, where we share study notes of Gloria Copeland and George Pearsons on God’s will for our prosperity.
We also have a young moms’ fellowship.
God has really been helping me and many others through these platforms.
I’ll suggest your subscribers check out the manna reserve website. They can download the books for review from there. I personally download and share the books with my participants. I also created a library on my drive where I store the book, then i share the link for them to go download.
Your ebook idea is also awesome, we get to have those pdf downloads for keeps.
Here is Ogo’s introduction to her website she sent me to share with my readers:
THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.Romans 1:7
If you’re like most Christians, you want to live a better life.
You want better health, better ﬁnances, better relationships and better life experiences. You’re tired of dealing with the same problems, day in and day out, with no solutions. You long for something more…you long to live a life of victory.
Yes, you can live a life of victory! All it takes is a seeking heart that wants to learn how to operate on the authority of God’s WORD, and a little guidance. If you’ll provide the ﬁrst, we’ll provide the second.
DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
“I’m sick all the time, my health is poor, or I’m terminally ill.
I’m broke. I’m in debt, and I never have enough money to pay the bills. I struggle with constant fear, anxiety and/or depression. I’m struggling with an addiction and/or living a lifestyle I know is not pleasing to God. I’m struggling in my marriage or relationships at home or work. I have a huge problem, and I do not know how it will ever get solved. I feel like my life is going nowhere, and there is no hope for change. I have an OK life, but I feel like something’s missing. I want to have a better relationship with God. The vision of *Faith Thinz* is to see mature sons and daughters of God, take their place of Dominion and Authority, and reign in this life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
You’re invited to visit our website www.faith-thinz.org to learn more about *FAITH THINZ* and to join any or all of our WhatsApp Groups to receive consistent scriptural teachings to strengthen your faith. You can download the WhatsApp App on your device.
So, dear readers of realhealthhope.com, I hope you are encouraged to find such a resource so full of hope and faith and I encourage you to visit Ogo’s website.
