Women In Tune (WIT), came to Nigeria by divine appointment in the year 2004 with the “Free To Serve message.” This message was an eye-opener to the women leaders that attended the seminar. The impact of the message cannot be over emphasized; as it stirred up the women to serve the Lord with confidence. We were told to break through our cultural limitations and serve the Lord with liberty, as a result of the finished work on the cross.
While we were still ruminating on this timely message, Apostle Jennifer Wallace came back with the following year with another message on the “Identity of the Woman”. This second message further strengthened us in our service to the Lord. The identity of the woman was unveiled. We saw ourselves as God sees us, we saw the value He placed on us, and we also discovered that we were uniquely created by God for His specific purpose and Glory.
As a result of this unique work, WIT has made an impact in the Western part of Nigeria and the neighbouring country, Benin Republic. Christian women leaders who attended the WIT seminars took the messages back to their various ministries, towns and spheres of influence with passion to impart others.
WIT also did a joint work with our ministry, Esthers’ Arise Intl’ Ministries (Nigeria) annually for several years during the Christian Women Leaders’ Prayer Retreat. Apostle Jennifer Wallace continued to impart grace into our lives through her unique messages.
Last year, precisely January 2012, WIT also came to Nigeria, under the umbrella of Cedars’ House Christian (International), with a specific message to the Nigerian Church and the Nigerian youth. Apostle Jennifer Wallace urged the Nigerian church to wake up from slumber and rise up to the Lord’s call to kingdom lifestyle and righteousness. The identity and purpose of the church was emphasized. As a result of this message, a group of 5 pastors are now meeting regularly to intercede for the Church and the nation.
Identity crisis was also dealt with among the youths as they were told to break the mould that held them down for too long to stand for Christ. There were healings and deliverance at each meeting. We look forward to more open doors for the ministry in Nigeria especially in other parts of the country.
