Fivefold Family


Brother Femi!!! OUR FRIEND!!! We will miss you IMMENSELY!!! No words could describe truly how grateful we are! This was the greatest THANKSGIVING weekend we have ever experienced in our whole life! The BEST chapter God could have ever written for us thus far!!!

We love you deeply, sincerely… We have collided with a man JUST like the Apostle Paul, who I have not met only through scriptures… He said, I am being poured out like a drink offering. And so you have demonstrated that this weekend and we are forever indebted to you! In my life I can say THIS scripture was fulfilled to the highest degree.

But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you.
Philippians 2:17

This was a covenant weekend my friend! We love you indeed!!! Yes!!! Thanks be to God Almighty for the divine things of this life! We can obtain it! To have you sit with us is a GIFT!imageimage

I can only say that I have never been so overwhelmed spiritually. I have had GREAT moments in the kingdom. It is not to say those are less valuable for it all has taken deep root in my life. Life altering, deep and intimate moments that are always unforgettable but this excels them all.  On behalf of my husband, daughter, son and church –YOU HAVE IMPARTED! This weekend was a spiritual overload- a tsunami. WOW!


I could easily say that we have walked in this weekend knowing NOTHING and now gaining GREATNESS! This was the largest seed planted in our lives! We have received words of prophecy, YES! Ardent prayer, YES! Support and immense love, YES! I just wanted to only express the connection that was orchestrated by God for such a time as this. For any one to step foot in our midst and release a word takes courage. And God has sent to us I can say THE BEST servants. The most obedient of all in ministry and character. I love them all.

But dear brother and apostle Femi Adun, you are instant family! I tell him privately what I would share publicly… You have a HOME in New York City! He can share as he wishes, “I have a house in New York.” He wont even have to question…a key has been given through the grace that is upon this man. I NOW KNOW WHY the people brought their properties at the apostles feet! Because the natural things would be NO COMPARISON to the things of the spirit. Apostles pour out! Immensely! Profusely! Unquestionable! Undeniably! They surrender and sacrifice ALL just for the sake of the CALL! They leave families, jobs, commitments and other things JUST to be exactly where God calls them. That is worthy of recognizing and honoring.

All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.
Acts 4:32-35


They ALL brought their goods…and the ones that DID not CATCH that revelation, unfortunately they perished. That is just the word of God. I don’t want to place fear here. I am simply explaining the concept of our natural goods. They are useless compared to the things of the spirit. As the word declares, this is one of the many passages where we catch revelation of that:

Set your minds on things that are above,
not on things that are on earth.
Colossians 3:2 ESV

And I will never forget when Anthony (now Pastor Tony of HEIM) was sitting in our living room sharing that word with his hands opening like a book… “you see, so the WORD comes from above, focus on that.” There is so much more that God wants to send us. Heavenly and divine things. WOW! This is all so precious, priceless and beautiful. What could be of more value?

Dear Apostle Femi, you have sown into our family, you have sown into our church. You have came to preach, attract, engage and ignite in us all a FIRE AND FULL PURPOSE! Your words have taken deep root in all of us. We will never be the same again. This will not go in vain…NEVER! This word will NOT falter. This SHALL come to pass because God sent it! And He sent you to deliver the goods! You are the mailman for ministry. You are the mailman for mandates. You are the mailman for manifestations! THANK YOU for taking on such a precise assignment, job and heavy responsibility. Your words carry such weight that after hearing—I want nothing else but the deep things of God!

And so I woke with a heart to write this for you Femi. You see so today, we celebrate you. Today we honor the gift upon your life. Today we declare MORE favor over your life. We will pray for you and your beautiful family that granted you also to join us. Today we recognize because of you…WOW we want more. Just as the Apostle wrote in the epistles, you have exemplified this weekend. We cannot forget. We give GOD THE GLORY due to His Powerful Name!

New International Version…
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.

New Living Translation….
And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.
1 Corinthians 11:1

God you have done the best things for us by always sending us the best. We love you Lord. And dear Femi–we love you with the love that God has placed in us. You are part of the fivefold family with us and with MUI Church. Always.
