I was born as a fulfilment of a prophecy spoken to my parents.
My mother, in giving birth, had undergone caesarian operations for four times. The condition of her womb was said to be so bad that, an operation was carried on her that completely cleared every chance of her having babies, knowing she could not survive any further caesarian section.
Not long after this, came a prophecy that she would give birth to another baby boy who would fulfil a specific mission for the Lord and to be ordained on his naming ceremony.
After seven years, I was miraculously born out of a womb that only God knew about as a fulfilment of that prophecy. On the eighth day, at my naming ceremony as the custom demanded, my father the late Rev, Samuel Hope and the clergies present ordained me as a minister according to the prophecy that came before me.
Though I was very active in Ministry from my childhood, I always had a deep sense of wanting to know that specific mission God had for me. In a village crusade outreach in 1994, I had a vision of darkness covering the world in form of a globe in the hands of Jesus Christ who was looking compassionately on the dark globe and I saw a strong beam of light from heaven sparkled on the dark globe and immediately, people were springing up from the dark globe with hands lifted up crying for reconciliation.
This vision has been my burden and my prayer. While the vision has gone through different stages and clarity, the clear message of the mission is RECONCILIATION at all levels. Man to God, himself, others and his environment. The pursuit of this mission has led me to establish the Centre for Peace and Reconciliation and the Reconciliation Alliance.
