PC: Any testimony to share with the church?
Personality: I quite remember when I was second year, I missed three lectures of the same lecturer. And we all know that one of the rule of the school is that, if any student misses lecture for three times, he or she will trail that particular paper. This incident happened to me but I had a genuine reason but the lecturer told me he will trail me but I prayed to God that he should have His way. So in the day of the examinations, whilst we were writing his paper, he came in and took my paper and another lady, this left me in a dilemma whether to leave the examination room or still sit down but eventually I remain seated for about an hour time. The lady whom the lecturer took her paper with mine had a letter from the Academic tutor indicating she had actually took a permission for her absence but the lecturer said he wouldn’t agree, so the head of department had to come in and plead on our behalf before he allowed us. Even with that he said he was not going to mark our papers. So after writing the papers I went to thank him and he said I shouldn’t repeat that again and I prayed to God that He should see me through. So when we came the following semester I had passed that paper all to the glory of God. I want to encourage my fellow Christian that they should have faith in Christ.
