PART 17 TEACHER CHUKS 3 ©️Opeyemi Ojerinde Akintunde
“Should I accept this big miracle?” I asked myself as it was too big to be true.
“If you accept, I will go to my room and bring the documents”
“Yes! He has accepted, he is just shocked because this is a miracle. Do you mind if I call my lawyer so that it is official?” Baba Agba
“Very Good, I never thought of that, let me put a call through to my lawyer as well. You can come in and look around.” She said as she opened the gate…
I kept walking though I knew my legs felt numb. Baba Agba called his lawyer, while Mrs. Coldwealth went to her office to bring the papers.
I looked around and saw a well prepared place, everything was intact. Rooms with bunks, Common rooms that had Televisions, Dining room, Empty rooms which I imagined could be converted to Art studios, Dance studios, Drama studios for the teens…
Jesus! And I wept… I broke down and cried. I never knew this was the promise land and destiny God had for me, but I let the devil almost take it away. What if I had not been given a second chance? What if I had died and Satan and his agents had taken me to the red hot place, all these teens would have continued in their destructive ways…
“Do you know, you are an answer to my prayers, about 3 years ago, I gave my life to Christ and ever since then I had begged God to give me a chance to help young girls as much as I had destroyed some. I didn’t have the opportunity, but here you are. If you won’t mind, I would love if you employ me under you to help with the girls…” Mrs. Coldwealth said from behind me, as she stood beside Baba Agba and within a split second, I felt like I saw Baba Agba and Mrs. Coldwealth as a couple.
I quickly dismissed the thought and tried to concentrate on her request, fortunately for me, Baba Agba saved the day…
“Sure, we all are partners in this work, I am sure he has nothing against that, because as we speak, though you have given us the big facility, we don’t have what it takes to feed the kids and cloth them, so we will still need you to help him raise funds from the Government. This is a home for housing homeless children. You can use your connections to get foundations, government and international bodies to finance this project…”
“That won’t be a problem, I will pray about it and God will lead us on how to go about it!” Mrs. Coldwealth said.
I still had not uttered a word since and I knew that could be misinterpreted as unappreciative.
“Ma’am, I am really short of words though my heart is full of it, but all I can say is thank you and you are welcomed to the family. Let’s together Light Up the world with these little ones God has given us the opportunity to nurture to brightness. They will be the light of the World that the dark powers of this world will not be able to comprehend. I hope to share my story with you some day!” I said.
The lawyers came around and the ownership of the facility was transferred to me. As Baba Agba and I returned home I gazed into the heavens and I just wished I could see God’s face and blow Him a kiss….
“Just like that!’ I kept saying. At that point I understood that it was true that some men of God got big gifts like cars, jet, houses, and huge amount of money from people whose ministry had blessed and touched. That meant if we truly serve God, there is nothing he cannot touch the hearts of men to give us to make the ministry in our hands easy and achievable.
Favour was waiting at Baba Agba’s place. I was excited to see her, I wanted to share the good news with her but I could see she wasn’t herself…I decided to keep my peace
“I am ready to do the video….” Favour said
Two Miracles in one day! But if only I knew I still had an uninvited visitor on her way to see me.
