I make it a pt. of duty to read the ECU pool mails. But i was esp. interested in the write-ups on "my ecu series". Honestly I cannot encapsulate my 5 yrs experience in few words, but ECU left an indelible mark in our existence ( i am speaking on my behalf and that of my three sisters and my husband who are all
ECU alumni ).
In d last one week, I went to OAU twice (my first in 17 yrs) and I realized not much changed as per the structures and the general academic environment. What changed were the people in it.
I recalled with nostalgia my various encounter with God there. That day I actually shed tears on the campus. I realized the best memories of my 5 yr sourjourn in OAU were the encounters with God and the brotherhood that ECU offered me. ECU then was not about "me, mine" or self. "It was about "what impact can I have on the next fellow".
Some of these brethren I may never see until we reach the other side of eternity, but I will always cherish the memories of times spent together. And will forever be grateful to God for their lives.
Having served in leadership position from my part 2 to part 5 (1988/89 Campus evangelism assit. subgrp leader,1989/90 Followup teacher, 1990/91 Fellowship librarian, 1991/92 FYB Fin. Sec.) I believe my experience there form building
blocks for what we are doing in ministry today.
I av also made up my mind to be at the next reunion God willing. I want to encourage everyone to do the same.It will be nice to be back to our "roots".
Bros Bayo & Opanubi and their team are doing a great job. Be encouraged, d word of God says you should not be weary, for in due season u will reap if u faint not.(Gal. 5:9). Keep praying for more grace for the rest of us.
Also i guess the 5k is not a limit either people should be able to drop what they have anytime they want to.
Lastly I noticed the catch phrase av changed. Maybe I am a chip off the old block but I still prefer "Our destination is God".
