Uncommon Blessing To Humanity : Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi
By TRIANGLE News Media
It it a general belief that Nigeria and indeed the world would have become much better if all the clergy could emulate the life of tireless giving by Her Eminence, Rev. Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, the Founder and General Overseer of the Love of Christ Generation (C&S) Church. The church headquarters is located in Clapham, London and has branches all over Nigeria and other parts of the world.
She is the convener and sponsor of the annual ‘Celebrate The Comforter’ event which is being used to glorify God and celebrate unity and preach peace in the body of Christ; particularly the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) and Cherubim and Seraphim Church (C&S). The 2019 edition of the evangelical event that was held in Lagos attracted a large number of participants from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, other European countries as well as people from the 36 states of the federation. Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi is also a fire brand prayer warrior, a spiritual virtue that accounts for her sobriquet of ‘Iya Adura’.
Iya Adura has indeed proven her mettle as a prophetess whom God has been using over the years to perform miracles and deliver all other forms of spiritual blessings not only to her congregants, but people of the world in general. She is also a leading light and icon of the white garment churches across the globe. God has been using this woman of prayers to send people out of churches that have gone fetish and to completely cleanse dirty altars. She has brought true love, unity, togetherness and empathy to the body of Christ. God has also been using Rev. Mother Ajayi to engender revival in the Christendom. She has to a large extent been able to correct the notion of spiritism and fetish practices that were formerly associated with the white garment churches in Nigeria.
Aside the ecumenical feats of Her Eminence, Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi across the continents of the world, she has also been of immense blessing to humanity through her global philanthropic endeavours. She has touched so many lives within and outside the African continent through her Esther Ajayi Foundation. The passion of Her Eminence to give and positively impact lives is simply unbelievably unmatched. She is irrevocably committed to giving back to her society without blinking an eyelid. Philanthropy has become a passion and way of life for her.
It is the firm belief of Iya Adura Worldwide that there could be no love for the motherland without genuine love towards humanity. She has been consciously reaching out to the poor, downtrodden, sick, heartbroken, orphans, widows and those in need of general rehabilitation. She has taken it upon herself to take up the responsibility of alleviation of misery and poverty in Nigeria and the African continent.
The Esther Ajayi Foundation has so far restored many sick persons to good health, taken many children from streets and enrolled them in schools and it has also rehabilitated many returnees from Libya and other parts of North Africa.
The Esther Ajayi Foundation has also taken it upon itself to assist some Internally Displaced Persons as a result of terror activities of Boko Haram in the North Eastern part of Nigeria. Impacts of philanthropic gesture of the renowned prophetess have also been greatly felt in African nations like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Benin Republic. She and her delegation visited Liberia not long ago for a three day visit and they were received by the Vice President of the country, Her Excellency Jewel Johnson. The Foundation has been providing support for the homeless and poverty stricken persons in the African continent. The Foundation has likewise concerned itself with the rehabilitation of offenders, drug addicts and sexually abused ladies across the African continent.
The Esther Ajayi Foundation not long ago picked up the medical bills of popular Nigerian comedian, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe. Also, Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi recently adopted a 4 year old Ayomide Adeoye, the orange seller whose video went viral on social media. The boy has since been enrolled
been enrolled in Avi-Cenna International school, G.R.A, Ikeja, Lagos. She has also given financial lifelines to countless number of people in Nigeria and African continent. One of such beneficiaries of her kind gestures is a pastor of Redeemed Christian Church whom she gifted #5 million during a church programme organized by Shepard Israel Ogundipe of Genesis Parish, Celestial Church of Christ.
She is a Matron and financial supporter of not less than 50 churches in Nigeria and other countries of the world. Rev. Mother Ajayi is also the Grand /Life Matron to many charity organizations and Non- Governmental Organization across the countries of the Africa continent. She is undoubtedly an extraordinary being who possesses an extraordinary heart and gift of giving. Her Eminence has set enviable records through philanthropy for posterity to forever remain kind to her.
With all the astonishing success stories of Iya Adura, she still remains extremely humble and totally submissive to her husband, Rev. (Dr.) Ademuyiwa Ajayi. She has never allowed success in the ministry to erode her God’s given gift of humility. She would always kneel down to greet her husband even in the public and would never allowed someone else to handle the cooking of her husband whenever she is around. Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi is without doubt a product of grace and an God fearing individual.
God’s special grace has become evident in the life of the Awori born Iya Adura since she was barely 20 years of age. This was the age she had been responsible for the upkeep of her parent. It was also the same grace that made it possible for her to build her first house, a storey building before she attained age 25.
Her clergy mission unconsciously began at the age of 14 when she prayed for her sick mother and she became healed almost instantly. The second miracle that God performed through Rev. Mother Ajayi even as a little girl was when she prayed for a woman whose pregnancy was long overdue and she delivered safely and almost immediately after the payer session. The woman therefore named the baby Oluwasanmi to show appreciation to God Almighty.
God has continually manifest His faithfulness in the ministry of Rev. Esther Ajayi since it started. Unmerited favour from God has also been a recurring factor in her ministry. God proved Himself mightily by arresting her husband who used to mock her that she was wasting time with church instead of staying in shop when she started the Faith Bible College. As a matter of fact, Rev. (Dr.) Ademuyiwa Ajayi is now now a lecturer in the same Faith Bible College.
The decision of Mother Esther Abimbola to leave her flourishing business for a full time ministry was instructed by God Himself. Even after a prophetess told her in Abuja that she must proclaim the gospel of God, she still refused to heed the instruction. However, there was no more hiding place for her when she went for prayer in a mountain at Iragbiji, Osun State and she clearly got same instruction from God. The instruction was for her to ring a bell from her house to the streets if she does not want anything bad to happen to any of her children. She thereafter reasoned that God actually wanted her to summon enough courage and proclaim His gospel to the world and prove that she was not in any way ashamed of the gospel.
In all these, God has in return been using people of means across the world to help and bless the ministry of Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi. Divine provision of £5.2 million with which she built a church in London is clearly an evidence of God’s faithfulness in her ministry.
