IN PREPARING THE CURRENT MOTHER OF THE CHURCH, THE LATE MOTHER ONE MORNING WAS LED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT FEW MONTHS BEFORE SHE FELL ILL, DADDY, PLEASE THE LORD SAID THAT YOU SHOULD BRING OUT THE CAR FOR US TO GO AND VISIT NGOZI. ON REACHING NGOZI’S HOUSE IN HER FATHER’S COMPOUND AT CKC CLOSE INDEPENDENCE LAYOUT ENUGU, HER FATHER WAS AT HOME READING HIS NEWS PAPER THOUGH ILL, AFTER GREETING HIM, MOTHER YEMI SAID, NGOZI PLEASE THE LORD SAID YOU SHOULD TAKE US TO YOUR ROOM, WHICH NGOZI DID IMMEDIATELY WITH FEAR OF NOT KNOWING WHAT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS UP TO AT THAT TIME. NORMALLY IN THE HOUSE OF JOSEPH MEMBERS HAVE LEARNT FROM EXPERIENCE THAT THE WORD “THE LORD SAID” PUTS FEAR IN THE MIND OF THE HEARER: THE FEAR OF THE LORD WHICH ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM. AS NGOZI TOOK US TO HER ROOM, THE HOLY SPIRIT WORD FROM MOTHER YEMI WAS; “NGOZI IS THIS HOW YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP AND TAKE CARE OF MY HOUSE? LOOK AT HOW YOU SCATTERED YOUR DRESSES EVERYWHERE IN THE ROOM, O YA START ARRANGING THEM NOW NOW NOW!” QUICKLY NGOZI STARTED AND ARRANGED ALL HER SCATTERED DRESSES IN HER ROOM THAT DAY, LITTLE DID WE KNOW THAT MOTHER YEMI WAS PREPARING A SUCCESSOR. MANY OTHER INDICATIONS FOLLOWED.
