God miraculously sends down mobile airtime to church congregation in Abeokuta

by | Feb 12, 2016

Nigerians are church lovers no doubt, which explains why we have churches everywhere, despite the already intimidating number. Besides the regular habit of praising God, it appears we go to church for many other reasons. What I actually mean here is that the ratio of those of us who go to church expecting to receive “our heavenly blessings” rather outweighs those who are keeping to the norm — the actual habit of praising God and Giving. If you can apply your ears to the ground during a serious church prayer session, you may very much confirm this.

Having said that, what we never get to see everyday is when the pastor is championing this campaign. I woke up to a story that kicked started my day on a good note, and I feel obliged to pass it across.


That’s a shocking video of a pastor asking church members to stretch forth their phones and in a way we actually can’t explain, God miraculously sends down from heaven airtime into their phones.

We are currently living in an era where everything is going digital, from shopping online to even hailing taxi services online. But I must say, I never saw this kind of technology coming. In this part of the world we talk about leapfrogging generation of lapses to building pace setting global infrastructure, could this just be an example? Well, I personally don’t know how to respond to that.

Nigerians afterall would never cease to amaze you. Do let us know what you think about this in the comment section.
