While thanking God Almighty on behalf of those who were ordained, Deacon Timothy Sherman Adamu, said, “First of all, I thank God Almighty, the Maker of Heaven and earth for bringing me thus far in His service.
“I want to also mention here that what you’re witnessing today in my life wouldn’t be complete without me made mention of Prophet Zachariah Ayuba, the Seer of Hephzibah Synagogue and outreach Ministry, Graceland Zaria, whom God used to bring me back from the shackles of the darkness in 2014 when God used him to deliver me, then afterwards, at an all night vigil Service, he directed that I join Daddy Japheth Danjuma at the Kaduna Church which was newly opened in 2016. Before then I used to leave Kaduna for Zaria to attend Service there.”
He thanked the Lord God Almighty for seeing him through from his childhood, adding, “I’ll like to also say that as a child, while growing up, at between ages of three (3) and four (4), I was so much attached to church activities that I always became the best in Bible verse citation at EWCA Church Barnawa, then later as at adulthood, I lost steam and the devil begin to use me play snooker.”
Mr Adamu thanked God that his destiny is in God’s Hands and He was not yet done with him, assuring, “God’s infinite mercies located and brought me back to Himself through the Prophet Zachariah Ayuba Ministry and since after my deliverance, no looking back anymore. Service to God is all I want to achieve in this life.”
