In recent communication from Bisi Adeluyi, the National President of Aglow Nigeria, and the other eight members of her National Board, the mighty power of God was evident. In a nation where horrific challenges in daily life have reached worldwide news reports, and general economic challenges have ravaged many parts of Nigerian society, the leaders of the Aglow ministry are finding new ways to move forward.
Security issues and Covid-19 concerns have restricted movement and the physical gatherings of people, but training the Local Aglow leaders on how to use social platforms in their local Aglow chapters has opened new ways of meeting. The National Board members have introduced holding Aglow meetings via Zoom, and they have also used this media platform for monthly leadership training, and bi-weekly live-feed of prayer meetings.
Aglow Nigeria is currently producing a bimonthly evangelism program on Facebook and Zoom that is called “Aglow Power Hour”. They are encouraging the women to use the internet for evangelism throughout their nation. Earlier this year, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, they were able to hold the Aglow Nigeria National Conference, as well as, a National Annual Prayer Retreat, both via Zoom. These events were both a huge success.
One of the many ministries active in Aglow Nigeria is helping people in prison. The Aglow women are willing to “go the extra mile” to change lives through the leading of the Holy Spirit, and one of the leaders shared this recent testimony: “There was a very sick inmate who was condemned to death. We took him to the hospital and ensured that he had treatment. We didn’t stop there. We ensured that he was on a good diet. The court eventually set him free.”
God is changing lives through the loving and caring actions of the women and men in Aglow Nigeria!
