Botswana Best Student Gets TB Joshua Scholarship

A Form 2 high-flyer Naomi Higgins, who passed her Junior Certificate Examination (JCE) with flying colours, has received a tertiary scholarship from Nigerian televangelist Temitope Balogun Joshua, commonly known as Prophet TB Joshua.

Higgins joins thousands of students worldwide who have received scholarship ranging from primary to tertiary education sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua, founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and Emmanuel TV partners.

The 14-year-old brilliant student will be the second from Botswana to benefit from the same initiative following Mary-Jean Nleya who was sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners to pursue her Bachelor of Laws and attained Magna Cum Laude at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.

Nleya was also sponsored by Prophet TB Joshua to pursue her Master’s Degree at Harvard University under the Harvard Law School and was also given an opportunity with the help of the Prophet to get an internship at International Criminal Court at The Hague in the Netherlands.

Higgins, who is currently doing her Form 4 at Selebi-Phikwe Senior Secondary School (SPSSS) was the only student at Nxakato JSS who attained grade A even though she sat for JCE whilst doing Form 2.

In an interview with Mmegi, Higgins said that words were not enough to describe her happiness when she received an invitation to SCOAN by Prophet TB Joshua.

She said that during her first encounter with Prophet TB Joshua she was shivering and all in tears.

She added: “Prophet TB Joshua is a holy man and everything at SCOAN was godly. I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet him in person.”

Higgins further said that she was still shocked that everything that happened to her in the past weeks started off with a small achievement of her passing JCE.

She hopes to be a cardiologist and said that to her surprise during her one-on-one with Prophet TB Joshua, he offered her a tertiary scholarship to study what she wants when she finishes her BGCSE.

She also said that Prophet TB Joshua also appointed Nleya to be her mentor, role model and contact person for the prophet. Higgins clarified that: “Nleya was the one who showed Prophet TB Joshua the article.

She is the same person who is going to assist me to apply for Harvard University or any other university, which is best in Cardiology across the globe.” She added that the scholarship would cover everything including tuition fees, living allowance and accommodation.

She also mentioned that Prophet TB Joshua gave her $3, 000 (about P33,000) so that she can purchase educational material to help her prepare for the BGCSE final examination. The intelligent girl was so determined to study harder at school because there was no way she was going to miss an opportunity to go to Harvard University.

About her stay in Nigeria, Higgins said she was over the moon because it has been her long term goal to be part of the congregants at SCOAN. She said that she would always cherish the moment because she was treated like a very important person (VIP) and accommodated in an executive suite just like in a five-star hotel.

The brilliant student described their experience at SCOAN as something out of this planet especially, the part where they visited the spiritual prayer mountain. The ever smiling student said to make the journey to SCOAN even memorable was the part where she had to board on an aeroplane for the first time in her life.

She said that she would always thank God for everything, day and night, for making her dream come true earlier than expected. Higgins’s mother Ruth Higgins, who was equally elated, thanked Mmegi for writing an article about her brilliant daughter.

She said it was through the article that her daughter was discovered by the Prophet TB Joshua who offered her the tertiary scholarship. She further said that if her daughter finishes her Form 5, provided she performs well, she will go to any University of her choice and Prophet TB Joshua will wholly cover the scholarship.

Ruth added: “I don’t know how to describe the feeling as it is out of this world. The ball is in her court now to work extra harder in order to pass her BGCSE.” The delighted mother said that the bursary gives them assurance as parents that their daughter ‘s dream of studying Cardiology at Harvard University would come true provided she meet the University entry credentials. Ruth was certain that her daughter would pass BGCSE with merit because she is a hard worker and well-disciplined girl.

She expressed gratitude to Prophet TB Joshua for awarding Naomi the tertiary education scholarship and to God for giving her abundance of blessings. Ruth also thanked one of the beneficiaries of Prophet TB Joshua’s education bursary Nleya who discovered her daughter.

She shared that they learnt that Nleya also received scholarship from Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners years back when she was just an ordinary visitor at SCOAN. She also described Nleya as a guardian angel who made her daughter’s dream turn into reality. Naomi’s father, Kenneth Higgins said that he was extremely overjoyed of his daughter’s achievements. He said that his daughter’s achievements have brought admiration to his family.

Kenneth said: “This is what all fathers dream of and this is what we want for our families. I give all the honour and glory to the almighty God and Prophet TB Joshua for this grace from God. I am very much humbled by the kind gesture.” He said that Naomi’s achievements would go a long way in motivating her fellow peers on the importance of taking education seriously and to aim high and reach great heights.

South African Returnees Get Financial Aid, Succour From SCOAN

Says “TB Joshua’s tears against xenophobia on live TV saved our lives”

They looked trapped, beaten and ruffled. It was a mix of pain and relative relief. Pain, because all they had laboured for had vanished; pain, because their livelihoods had disappeared; pain, because they lost loved ones; and relief, because now they had returned home and from the airport, they came to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), with headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria. The first batch of returnees were victims of xenophobic attacks in South Africa.

As they entered and sat down in the church, they began relating their stories of escape one after the other. According to them, it was the tears of Prophet T.B. Joshua during the live Sunday Service broadcast on September 8, 2019 that calmed the crisis in South Africa. As they came to SCOAN, the founder and spiritual head of the ministry, Prophet T.B. Joshua, told them that love would always remain supreme, just as he stressed on the need for unity, harmony and togetherness.

Prophet T.B. Joshua in his message to the returnees promised to continue to help them by praying for them and also through financial aid. He promised to help them by investing in their future which is the future of Africa. He equally mentioned that their spiritual wellbeing remained important to him. On behalf of himself and Emmanuel TV partners, Prophet Joshua gave them N3,000,000, with each returnee getting N100,000. The man of God stated that love is the only language that transcends all barriers.

While telling their stories, the returnees whose plane arrived Nigeria on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, gave different accounts of their ordeals but thanked Prophet Joshua for being used by God for salvaging the situation and for providing succour for them after their return.

According to Uche Victor Nwaocha, one of the returnees: “With me are my colleagues, friends, fellow brothers and sisters who came from South Africa voluntarily. I don’t even know where the problem of Africans attacking Africans came from.

‘’I was involved in the baking business. I baked chin-chin and I am proud to say it. I built the business from scratch. Africa should help us. The United Nations should help us; Prophet T.B. Joshua has tried. If others can join hands with the man of God and Emmanuel TV, then things will be better. Prophet T.B. Joshua forewarned Africa and they neglected it. This is the repercussion. The reason we all agreed to come to the Synagogue Church of All Nations is to appreciate what this ministry, Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel partners have been doing in our lives. We don’t joke with his prophecies. We always watch Emmanuel TV; that was what saved us. The tears that Prophet T.B. Joshua shed last Sunday during the live Sunday Service broadcast saved many lives. It reduced the catastrophe. After the Sunday Service where Prophet Joshua shed tears, there was calm everywhere. The police and politicians were confused. We took the opportunity of the calm to board the plane and head back to Nigeria. Many Nigerians are still coming. They don’t want us. We can see that. “

Kayode Johnson Oluwafemi equally narrated his experience. According to him, “I stayed in Pretoria Central, South Africa. This incident happened in my base. I stayed indoors for over two weeks before I could come out. On Sunday I heard that Prophet TB Joshua spoke to Africa. He wept on live TV and that saved many lives. I decided to return to Nigeria. I appreciate the man of God. He is a blessing to this generation. After Prophet TB Joshua wept against xenophobia, we were surprised that the South Africans called us for a meeting. They told us that they were willing to settle the whole issue. I was then able to step out of my house. The taxi drivers also called us for settlement.”

In his account, Aamefunam Ogbonna, another returnee stated that “The xenophobic attacks started on September 2, 2019. It was terrible. On September 8, there were tears by Prophet T.B. Joshua asking Africans to unite. His tears affected my soul. I prayed that God should use the tears in turning around the situation in South Africa. I prayed for peace. It was the tears of the man of God that made the police rally round us in saving us from the attackers. We must show love to one another.

Jude Anthony, a Nigerian based in the United States of America but who also lived in South Africa, commneded the efforts of Prophet Joshua in salvaging the situation. ‘’I am a Nigerian from the United States of America. I lived in South Africa for seven years. A friend of mine sent a Whatsapp video to me where I saw Prophet T.B. Joshua calling on Africans to unite. I saw how tears flowed from his eyes. The Bible says that God will answer the prayers of a righteous man. God heard Prophet T.B. Joshua that day when he wept. He is well respected across the world. His message has also been about love and unity. We are here today to thank him for interceding on behalf of humanity. I believe God answered his prayers on that day in stopping the spread of the calamity,’’ he said.

While recieving the money on behalf of others, Mr Nwaocha stated that ‘’We are grateful to Prophet T.B Joshua, the Synagogue Church of All Nations and Emmanuel TV. When we came here, we felt you would turn us back but you welcomed us. We are very grateful. Continue the good work.’’

On his part, Mr Anthony noted that ‘’we are most grateful. We are the first batch of returnees. We are overwhelmed by this. We have lost our livelihoods but thank God, we thank the man of God.’’ Others who spoke, thanked the man of God for the reception and the financial assistance. Olusoji Ayoola, another returnee, revealed that ‘’I am happy that we are back home. We give God the glory. We thank Prophet TB Joshua.’’

Daniel Eluebo, also a returnee could not hold back his joy when he exclaimed that ‘’I want to thank God for what he has done. All these started unexpected and God has used it to bless us unexpectedly.’’

It will be recalled that on September 8, 2019, during a live Sunday Service broadcast, Prophet Joshua in tears called on Africans to unite against the hateful tendencies that divide humanity, with Africa in particular. According to a song composed by him and jointly performed, Prophet Joshua said: ‘’Africa, unite. Don’t let fellow Africans feel unwelcome in our lands. Africa, unite. Remember where we are coming. We need each other; we need one another to grow. The South cannot do it alone. The West cannot go it alone. The East cannot do it alone. The North cannot go it alone. See the fight over joblessness among the youths. Where is the law? See the fight as a setback to Africa. Africa, unite… Let us come together. Africa, unite. Let us live in harmony.’’

 

Nigerian Student Testifies TB Joshua’s Prayers Helped Her Gain Admission to Oxford University!

blessing, tb joshua, scoan

Blessing Omorodion

A Nigerian student in UK who gained admission into the prestigious Oxford University has acknowledged that the prayers of T.B. Joshua were instrumental to her academic breakthrough. 

In the run-up to her exams, Blessing explained that “things got really tough” but she found strength through praying along with Joshua via his television network Emmanuel TV and ministering ‘Morning Water’ from his church.

In a testimony shared on Joshua’s official Facebook Page followed by 3.5 million people, a young lady named Blessing Omorodion recounted how her mother visited the cleric’s Lagos-based Church in December 2018.

“I had recently applied to the University of Oxford to study medicine, so I asked her to pray about my application. The following Tuesday after she visited The SCOAN on Sunday, I received an email stating that I got an interview and, by the grace of God, I got an offer,” she recounted.

However, the academic requirements necessary to meet the offer were rigorous. “I was required to get at least an A* and 2 As in my A-levels exams, so I knew that I would need to pray and work hard to meet these conditions,” she explained.

In the run-up to her exams, Blessing explained that “things got really tough” but she found strength through praying along with Joshua via his television network Emmanuel TV and ministering ‘Morning Water’ from his church.

“The encouraging words of Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV helped me to maintain my faith,” she testified.

According to Miss Omorodion, she even surpassed her academic expectations in the ensuing exams. 

“By the grace of God, I not only met my offer but exceeded it by getting 3 A*s in my Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology A levels,” Blessing ecstatically concluded.

Her academic institution Brampton Manor took to Twitter to celebrate her achievement, with Oxford University’s official Twitter feed retweeting the announcement of her successful admission.

An article published in UK’s Sun Newspaper highlighted Blessing’s remarkable achievement, revealing she only arrived in Britain aged 15 and could barely speak English at that time.

The University of Oxford, the oldest academic institution in the English-speaking world, is renowned as one of the world’s most prestigious universities and universally ranked among the best higher learning establishments worldwide.blessing, tb joshua, scoan

T.B. Joshua equally sponsored a Nigerian student, Olayinka Oduwole, for a PhD in the same institute, investing over £100,000 (N44m) in her academic pursuits. She has since graduated and now engages in pioneering research into 5G technology at the University of Surrey.

The New Morning Anointing Water

An American lady has testified that prayer with T.B. Joshua’s ‘Morning Water’ saved her from the impending destruction of a deadly tornado. 

In an account shared on Emmanuel TV’s official testimony portal, Janice Kwofie said she regularly ministered the Morning Water in her house at Dayton, Ohio.

“A tornado hit Dayton on Monday May 27th 2019,”she reminisced. “We had prayed with the Morning Water and were getting ready for bed when the sirens went off for a tornado warning.”

Janice quickly scuttled her family off to the ‘safe spot’ for protection against the natural disaster.Ohio tornadoes

“We woke up in the morning with our lights out and friends calling and texting to see if we were okay,” Mrs Kwofie explained.

“Little did I know that – just a block away from our house – every house, apartment and business had been destroyed!”

American media reported that one person died and 90 were injured as a result of the tornado, which left a trail of destruction in its wake.

Winds of up to 140 mph were recorded and 64,000 people were left without electricity.

According to Janice, the protection of her house and neighbourhood can only be attributable to Divine intervention.

“I know we were spared because of the Morning Water we had used and the Morning Sticker on the front door,” she stated, referring to the ‘spiritual items’ freely given to attendees at The SCOAN.

“Thank you, Jesus, for saving us and sparing all our neighbour’s lives,”she articulated.

“It’s a blessing to be an Emmanuel TV partner. They’re always praying for you even when you feel like you can’t,” she concluded.

I Saw TB Joshua In Heaven – Female American Pastor

Pastor Daphne Patoir, usa, tb joshua

Pastor Daphne Patoir shared her ‘Heavenly experience’ insisting she saw T.B. Joshua ‘in Heaven’ where she was taken during a vision

Writing by Ihechukwu Njoku

A female American Pastor has made a sensational claim on YouTube about controversial Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua, insisting she saw him ‘in Heaven’ where she was taken during a vision. 

Responding to a video alleging Joshua’s ‘powers’ were demonic, Pastor Daphne Patoir shared her ‘Heavenly experience’.

“On Tuesday January 2nd, 2018, I was crying out to God because I wanted to be a follower of Jesus… to serve Him with my whole heart,” she recounted.

“Suddenly, it was as if my body was a barrel and I had fallen to the bottom of the barrel and Jesus replaced me, in my body. I was conscious that my body was sitting in the chair, in our room. We were flying at the speed of lightning,” Patoir wrote.

The American – who ministers in Georgia with her husband Raynard – explained that she saw multiple ‘demons’ who were screaming out in fear as they seemed like ‘roaches’ before the ‘Holy One’.

“I lost control of my body. I remembered crying and telling Jesus that I was a simple girl from a small town and that the mystery was too much for me,” she vividly described, describing how the experience significantly solidified her faith.

“At lightning speed, Jesus took me into a room passed the second Heaven. As we entered, I saw three gift boxes. One had my name on it, the second one was given to a pastor I know and respect and the third one was given to T.B. Joshua. I saw T.B. Joshua in Heaven receiving a huge gift box,” she remarkably revealed.

Pastor Daphne said Jesus told her to ‘fear not’ when she pleaded that she wished to return to her body. “I know this might sound crazy but my body wouldn’t allow me access,” she explained when she attempted to return to her body during the vision.

Thereafter, the minister reminisced how after she “saw everything He wanted to show me, my body allowed me in”.

“I fell on my knees and I wept. Hours later, I was still trembling. I felt as if electricity was flowing through my body. While this was happening, my husband was sleeping in the bed. He told me that he heard me making unusual sounds and when he tried to get up to wake me, the power of the Holy Spirit pinned him to the bed.” 

Daphne concluded with her insistence that Joshua was a genuine servant of God and not using malevolent powers to hoodwink people. “I saw T.B. Joshua in the presence of God! I fear God; I wouldn’t lie,” she concluded. 

Similarly, Johan Helberg – a former officer in the Criminal Investigation Department of the South African Police Force (SAPS) – released a video to YouTube entitled, ‘Secrets of God and Prophet TB Joshua revealed’.

In the clip, Helberg – an Afrikaaner – recounted how he was ‘healed’ from a severe sinus problem and recurrent ‘stomach bleeding’ after praying along with Joshua via his television channel Emmanuel TV.

“I heard on TV that T.B Joshua is a false prophet and agent of darkness,” Helberg explained. “I watched videos of T.B. Joshua exposed by his members but was not convinced with what they were saying,” he continued, adding that this prompted him to deepen his investigations.

“Thank God that today, I am at an age where I can discern for myself who is a true man of God or not. This prophet is a rare gift to the world,”he stated.

“He has the solution to many people’s problems but the devil has kept them away with lies. I pray that God will open their eyes to see and recover themselves from the deceit of satan,” he concluded, adding that his life and marriage ‘completely changed’ after discovering Emmanuel TV four years earlier.

“I SMOKED WEED, DID ECSTASY & COKE EVERY SINGLE DAY.” – SEE HOW SHE QUIT!

tb joshua, scoan, emmanuel tvSusan was just 13 years old when she was first introduced to drugs. Surrounded by friends, she started smoking cigarettes and marijuana and using cocaine. Suddenly addicted, Susan was smoking one to two packs of cigarettes daily and could not do without marijuana or cocaine. Her distraught family checked her into many rehabilitation centers in the USA but as soon as she was released, she started her deadly habits once again. Addiction was coupled with anger and depression. The beautiful young girl was suddenly an angry and unruly youth.

Desperately seeking for a solution, Susan’s mother, Mrs Jone Soo Chai, found Emmanuel TV and began watching others receive their deliverance from the same addictions. She convinced her daughter to follow her to Nigeria and was surprised when, during the Sunday Service, Prophet T.B. Joshua stood before them and began to prophesy, “You are not the only one with this problem. There is a brother in the family who also has this problem. It is a family problem”. As Prophet T.B. Joshua then prayed for Susan, the transformation took place! Instantly, the desire for drugs and cigarettes left and was replaced with a desire for Jesus Christ.

Susan confirmed immediately that the prophecy was true, that a brother in the family was also under the same addictive bondage she had been and that she was now truly free, in Jesus’ name.

Susan’s mother confirmed that the severity of her daughter’s problem had almost broken her marriage, as her husband threatened to disown Susan and send her to a homeless shelter if they returned from The SCOAN without a change.

Glory be to God, when the Holy Spirit speaks, changes are beginning! Mother and daughter encouraged all who are bound by the same spirit of addiction to seek freedom from Jesus Christ for He alone can transform our inner self!

TRAUMATISED TERRORIST ATTACK SURVIVOR RECEIVES INCREDIBLE MIRACLE!!!

tb joshua uk crusade 11th March 2004 was one of Spain’s darkest days as a co-ordinated terrorist attack against four commuter trains in Madrid killed 193 people and injured almost 2,000. Here is the moving account of one survivor and her remarkable road to recovery…

It seemed like every other normal day for Lorena. She sat nonchalantly in the train, preparing for another day of work at the National Bank of Spain. Then, everything changed. A deafening roar. Anguished screams. Enveloping blackness. Evil had struck in the cruellest, most callous of manners. “The event never left my memory; it was like living in hell,” she recounted, grimacing at the gruesome image of the blood-stained carriage seared in her conscience. She was the sole survivor in the carriage where she sat; her close friend and four-month old baby among the fatalities.

Although Lorena survived, the attack took a huge toll – both physically and psychologically. She was left without hearing in one ear and dependent on a wheelchair for mobility. A once happy life shattered; a once active mind splintered. “I developed rheumatoid arthritis, lost my memory, suffered urinary incontinence and became so depressed. I saw no reason to live,” the Spaniard explained. It reached a boiling point when Lorena attempted suicide to ‘escape’ from her ‘hellish’ reality. Death tried multiple times to snatch yet she somehow clung onto life.

However, when Lorena heard about the Emmanuel TV UK Revival, an ember of hope kindled in her heart. Accompanied by her Pastor, Andres Espinoza, she made the journey from Spain to Sheffield in search of a miracle. When the minister of God, Racine, prayed for her, what transpired next defies human comprehension. “I am the spirit of death! I want to kill her!” – a strange, unclean spirit spoke through her as the Spirit of God exposed the demon behind her situation. In one glorious moment, fifteen years of pain, hurt and trauma were washed away by the blood of Jesus!

“Immediately after my deliverance, I felt strength and energy,” Lorena, who walked from her wheelchair after her anointed encounter, excitedly testified. “My mind is clear, I can walk – even climb stairs – move my hands and feet and there is no more incontinence!” Miraculously, her left ear – which had been deafened by the noise of the bomb blast – immediately opened after prayer! Apart from physical healing, the paralysing fear she lived with since the attack also left after her encounter with Jesus. “I encourage everyone to have a true experience with Jesus,” she advised. “I have personally encountered Him in my life and I want others to also have that encounter!”

Pastor Espinoza corroborated her remarkable testimony. “She has suffered a lot but I am so happy for what Jesus has done in her life. She is now back to normal,” he said. Indeed, the age of miracles has not yet passed. The Miracle Worker is still alive. His name is Jesus Christ!!!
