Yaaaaay! So, my church celebrated her 9th year anniversary on Thursday (10/10) and today we had our celebratory worker’s bash. It was themed Denim Fever. I don’t have any denim wear, neither do I have fever so I wore what I had. Shrugs. (I made my skirt by the way *wide grin*)
Let me not bore you with too much talk cos I can ramble forever so amma just go into the highlights of the day.
Fast and Furious
On our way to the venue, Pistis Conference center, we spotted our resident pastor somewhere around Lekki. His car was firing because *rme* benz engine no be una mate. Then we caught up with him at the traffic light (I was happy) and my friend, Heaven, did what was on my mind.
Just as the light turned green, He went vrooooom and sped past the car as we all giggled like mischievious children and waved at our pastor. 😂😂😂 He saw us and waved back. I hope we don’t get query for “chancing” him on the road sha. 🤭🤭🤭
I needed to go use the restroom and it turned out the toilet facility was under renovation. I was then redirected to a mobile toilet and for a second, I thought I had mistakenly entered someone’s parlour.
The first thing I saw was a TV, then the decorations. I was like, ehn ehn…shit business is serious business o. I stepped into the stall with the intention to do number 2 but I felt like I would be doing something sacrilegious. I mean, the toilet looked like a whole temple to me. Everywhere was just fine anyhow. Who puts flowers inside toilet? Who does that? 😂😂😂
The customer service was top notch Two very polite ladies attached to the toilet helped me navigate the handwash, the tap, the tissue dispenser and the magical bin. Honestly, I didn’t even want to step out again. 😂😂😂
Omo, guys I forgot about fitfam today. Please don’t judge me, I won’t do it again. 😭😭😭 We were given the option to preorder our food and I went for Chinese which tbh I regretted because it didn’t come out like the Chinese food I’m used to. Should have gone for my beloved jollof jehjeh. 🙄🙄🙄
Then there was dessert. Heaven knows I can’t stand too much sweet stuff but I had to go for this for experience sake. You people that eat oreos are not humans at all o. It was so sweet it hurt my brain. Had to eat it between imaginary tears because I hate to see food go to waste.
O…M…Gosh. I think the highlight of this bash was seeing the pastors in aprons, attending to people. They all had this cute, customized aprons and were assisting the servers. Every single one of them. It was so cute and heartwarming. Reminded me of one of our mottos, “Real greatness is in service.”
I couldn’t famz my lead pastor because everyone was rushing him like soft dodo. I famzed my resident pastor and our assistant resident pastor though. Hehehehe.
…Then they had a dance off
It’s pinching me that I couldn’t get pictures or videos of this as my table was so far away. Everywhere erupted in cheers and screams as they were all gbese-ing. Omo, leave matter for Matthias. Even the reserved one gaan represented.
Okay, I this is the highlight of the highlight of my day. I’ve spent a large sum of my life drifting through churches, never feeling like I belonged anywhere but my sojourn in The Elevation Church has been a whole different journey. Love everywhere.
If not that big girls don’t cry (in public), it was overwhelming looking around, realizing just how much at home I felt. I wanted to hug every single worker in there, 1500+ of them but that would make me look creepy.
I’ve been blessed by this ministry. I have met really amazing people. I’ve grown in terms of interpersonal, intrapersonal and interdimensional relationships. Please don’t ask me what that last one means. 😂😂😂
The rest in pictures
