Femi Shodunke ‘Oluwo’ becomes elder in Canadian church

A Nigerian veteran journalist Chief Femi Shodunke popularly called ‘Oluwo” has been ordained as an elder at a church located at the Christ Reconciliation Ministries International (CRMI), in Canada, North America

Penpushing reports that the ordination of Oluwo and three others held at  the church’s headquarters in Fort McMurray, Alberta Province, was the first set of elders, a decision said by the church authorities as directive from God

The leader of the Christ Reconciliation Ministries International (CRMI), Apostle Lewis Ayuk Nkongho, while speaking at the events said Oluwo a one-time Deputy Editor of the Nigerian Compass newspaper and other female ordained elders which include Helene Tabah Keating, Mary Eyere Tataw, and Lydia Besong Nkongho, said their ordination was manifestation of God’s power

“And today, God wants us to honor them.  I don’t honor them with levity; I honoured them with God’s grace, and I want to pray that the church should honor them as well.  And you will not look at them henceforth with levity because you will miss the blessings they have’,Nkongbo said

‘I know this caught you by surprise; so it was not prearranged.  So, it’s not me; it is an endowment that God wants to give to you. Now you will make it more public, because you are public now.  You have been hiding, so the manifestation of His presence will become public given upon you that even when you salute somebody something will come out”, he added

‘We are recognising them as elders in this church.  These ones standing here, they carry the spirit, they carry God’s presence, they carry God’s glory.  Don’t make mistake that those who stand on the pulpit always are the carriers. There are people sitting at the pew that carry more grace than the people standing here; many, they have the grace that is bigger than people standing on the pulpit,” he told the congregation.

Penpushing further reports that Nkongho described Shodunke as a gift to the church with his abundant wisdom and knowledge, stressing that he is talented and bless that he can relay message preached six months ago, unlike others who cannot even do that within a week of the preaching

“Most of you cannot tell us message that was preached last Sunday, but he can tell you message preached six months ago.  This is grace; I say this is grace.  There’s a day I greeted him in front of my house and we all laughed.  I was not alone and he told me pastor you greeted me, I said yes. But, he said I felt something within you; that’s been over a year, but I greeted many other people, they did not catch it.”

‘So, from that day, no matter what’s happening, I knew for God to have made him to understand that truly there is something in me that connected to him, that’s how God did it.  Me, I will give high five everyday, but you will not see it, but if it is God’s time you will see it.  It’s God’s time.”
