The time was 6.40pm on Monday of this week; after a hectic work day, when Idowu, Bosola, a couple of colleagues and I got to Magodo, for the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International – Magodo Chapter Meal Outreach, which we were invited to by a friend and colleague of ours, Anthony Kadiri.
The evening was opened by the MC, Barr. Dayo Adebayo, introductions were done (meeting and getting to know about other guests) and an opening prayer to kick starts the program. Networking comes with business dinner, and one has to be good at small talks, which the MC encouraged when he asked guests to greet one another.
A brief history of the fellowship was given and the purpose for the meal outreach is to interact with one another, share like mind ideas and encourage people to join. The Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International, according to Wikipedia, is a fellowship of lay businessmen, with headquarters in Califonia, USA. Its main purpose is to bring interest to the Christian gospel.
The meal in the ‘meal outreach’ was such a sumptuous one, I have to admit. Testimonies were given of how good God has been to fellow members. Non-members were encouraged to join the fellowship; with the major criteria being one must be a born-again Christian.
As the evening drew to a close (even though we didn’t stay till the very last minute), guests were invited to sing a happy birthday song for one of the executive members as he cut the birthday cake alongside his wife.
It was a simple and pleasant night out. I did enjoy the evening and I look forward to attending such outreach, meal or no meal inclusive…lolz.
