Greetings I bring in the name of Jesus Christ. I sincerely bless the name of the Lord for our members; partners; friends; critics; people who constitute our advisory body people we have touched; everyone who is connected to CGN. Because of your selfless contributions, we have been able to record greater success than we could have imagined.
We have come to that point in our existence where our work seems to get complicated, but with the help of God all things are made easy. When CGN started in 2016, our goal was to stop premarital sex among girls, hence abortion. As the achieving of that goal unfolded, we discovered that God has not sent us to stop premarital sex alone; He has sent us to stop all the works of the devil in our world today, not just among girls but also among guys. He has sent us to bring people to the knowledge and fulfillment of His intent for their lives. While our target is the girl child in Nigeria, we are mandated to reach every single soul in Nigeria and beyond.
I will at this point want to thank members of the Standing Committee of CGN who have worked with me so far to ensure that God’s instructions are not just passed but followed. Before I give the administration structure of CGN, let me make clear to us our vision and mission. Our vision is to produce females who are regenerated and steadfast in Jesus, thereby fulfilling God’s purpose for their lives. And our missions include bringing girls to Christ Jesus; teaching them the kingdom life, letting them know that females have power; empowering them and giving skills to them. Like I mentioned earlier, that while our target is the girl child, our vision and mission are extended to everyone on earth. Our vision and mission is God mandated. Glory to God.
CGN is made up of great and wonderful people. Trust me you are wonderful and great too and so you can be a part of us. Membership is open to everyone, both male and female. We have the Standing Committee which is the highest decision making body of CGN. As the president of CGN, I belong to this Committee. Other people in this committee include the Vice President; General Secretary; Treasurer; Programmes & Protocol Officer; Prayer Secretary and Choir Secretary. This Committee meets from time to time to discuss matters concerning CGN and they are respective leaders of other Committees and Units. For example, the President is the head of the Disciplinary Committee; the Vice President is the overall head of the workforce; the Prayer Secretary is in charge of the Prayer unit; the Choir Secretary is head of the Chosen Voices- the CGN Choir.
We also have the workforce; this constitutes people who belong to different units and see to the effective achievement of CGN programmes. Presently we have the following units: Prayer; Counseling; Ushering; Choir; Programmes; Protocol; Media & Publicity; Transport; Evangelism. The functions of all these units are duly spelled in the CGN book. While these people give all their best to CGN, CGN is also responsible for their growth and so we ensure that they are equipped Spiritually, Emotionally, Mentally and in all other ramifications. We have the advisory body in CGN and they are the people we meet for advice, prayers and contributions- notable people in this body include Pastor Adesina Ayobami; Barrister Idowu Tolu; Mummy & Daddy Opapeju among others. We are very grateful to these men and women of great wisdom.
So far, we have been able to conduct some programmes and activities to the Glory of God. I will like to state clearly that CGN is just a medium through which God is performing His mighty works, all programmes and activities belong to God. We have been able to create an online presence for God on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, WhatsApp and WordPress Blog all with the username ChosenGirlNG. Online we paste edifying articles, pictures and statements and we thank God for the fruits of our toil- we have followers on all platforms who testify to the blessings they have received from God through us. In March 2016, we had a publication produced with title ‘Lies Boys Tell Girls To Have Sex With Them’. This publication circulated around Ede, Osun State and we have not been able to produce any other since then, we believe that we will restore this publication by July, 2017.
We have had series of programmes, which include: Ede Sisters Retreat (now Hadassah Conference) which holds in Ede every year; School Visitations to Secondary Schools; Holy Ghost Power Retreat for members of CGN and currently we are holding a prayer meeting called ‘Taste’ every Friday in Ede. Our programmes have blessed the lives of participants despite the many challenges we faced. The challenges came and we were more than conqueror, I actually don’t think they were challenges, they just pretended to be.
We will keep fulfilling God’s Mandate for our lives. By the end of this year, we will be strongly based in Ede and Ife, Osun State. We bless God for how far He has come with us and I personally am so indebted to Him.
A big thanks I say to everyone that has been a part of CGN. I love you all.
Glory to God for He is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9).
Brethren were gathered in the ASF Auditorium amidst the outpouring of rain. Every one was full of excitement and joy was written over the face of people.
The programme started with opening prayer from Olaniyi Miracle where we thanked God for His benevolence over our life. We also prayed to enter the presence of God sanctified and holy. It was a great start for us.
Akinsowon Ruth was next on the podium as she led us through another round of prayers of thanksgiving- we thanked God mainly for His love for us. She read into our hearings pointing out why and how we should appreciate God for His love. We appreciate God for His love.
Omisakin Olufela stepped on the podium still speaking on the love of God. He mentioned that there are three major types of love: Agape love, philia love, erotic love, that Agape love is expressed ONLY from God to man. He asked that we think of one thing God has done for us and thank God for that.
Omisakin Olufela went ahead to speak on “Salvation” with reference as 1 Corinthians 15:45. God spoke through him and these are the outline of his message:
The first Adam is the Adam mentioned in Genesis 2&3, the last Adam is Jesus.
God created man in His own image and likeness and gave man dominion over everything.
Satan was not happy with the above point because he was interested in the dominion God has given Adam. Isaiah 42:12-15, Revelations 12:7-9.
God commanded Adam not to eat of the tree of the Knowledge of good and evil. The day he eats it, He will die. Genesis 2:7.
To take the glory from man, the devil needed to kill man. Mark 3:27.
The devil made Adam eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, man’s eyes was opened and his death could not be compromised. Genesis 3:1-7.
Every man born after this was connected to the first Adam. Romans 5:14.
Everyone who died before the resurrection of Jesus died a sinner and all went to Hades. Acts 2:27-34. Luke 16:23, Revelation 20:14.
God’s intention is to shed blood for the remission of sins. Hebrews 9:11-22.
Man’s redemption started at the last supper where Jesus gave his flesh and blood to the disciple, signifying triumph over death. Luke 22:19-20.
The Holy Spirit and the Father left Jesus at the garden of Gethsemane where he was arrested. Luke 22:39-46.
Jesus was insulted and threatened as a criminal because he carried the sin of every man, he was nailed to the cross.1 Peter 2:24.
Jesus went to hell as a sinner where he preached the gospel. 1 Peter 3:19, Ephesians 4:7-9.
He encountered death & Satan. And he conquered them. He collected the keys from them and was able to release the saints in hell. Revelations 1:18.
Jesus rose on the third day.
It is important that we accept Jesus has done for us by believing with our heart and confess with me out.
We then prayed on the Salvation of our lives asking God to take all of us and become all in life.
We also prayed for lost souls all over the world especially in Ede, Osun State. Sick people were also remembered in our prayers.
The programme ended around 9pm after announcements from Omisakin Olufela.
Hadassah Conference (CGN) started in 2016 and was then known as Ede Sisters Retreat. The vision of the programme is to bring ladies all over Osun State together, to discuss issues pertaining to Spirituality; academics; maritals and others. Participants at the programme get the opportunity to listen to God through ministers of God. The programme holds in Ede, Osun State.
The second edition of the programme will be holding this year and we believe that the testimonies we had in the first edition will flow into this year’s edition and even produce greater results. Ministers of God like Pastor Olaleye, Mrs Ojewumi, Mrs Adetunla, Mrs Oladeji have ministered at this programme and this year will witness more of God’s work through anointed ministers of God.
Hadassah Conference usually runs through two days, buy this year’s edition will witness a special prayer meeting that will hold before the conference. This prayer meeting will be for ladies and gentlemen.
We will like you to follow this programme, get ready for the greatest eruption you have ever seen in the land of Ede. Get ready for miracles, signs and wonders.
“Hadassah Conference is God’s agenda to start a Revival in the life of ladies. We have always witnessed wonderful, shocking and unexpected moments of God’s move. This year is going to be better because the glory of the later is of course mightier than the former.”
-Omisakin O. (CGN President)
Ever since last Hadassah Conference, so many people including myself have anticipated for the 2017 conference. The truth is not far fetched Hadassah Conference is here again.
You can not afford to miss this year’s conference,which is gonna be filled with true life changing experience, academic talk, marriage seminar,ladies gist and vocational training section.
-Oladeji O. (CGN Vice president)
“Last year’s Hadassah Conference was amazing. Pastor Olaleye was around to teach on how Mary was able to receive God’s favor. He taught about purity, patience, etc and I was really blessed. The testimony and experience that Mrs Ojewumi shared really touched my heart. Every moment I had was a blessing. It can only get better, this year Hadassah Conference is going to be a great one.”
-Akinsowon R. (Hadassah Conference ’17 Coordinator)
Today has been so aweeome for us at Chosen Girl NG. Our “Moments to Discuss” took us to ‘Timi Agbale Grammar School’ where we met with 60 girls and we discuss on the topic ‘enhancing relationship between mothers and daughters’.
Chosen Girl NG was able to pass three main points to the girls:
Respect your mother.
Communicate well with your mother.
Forgive your mother if she offends you.
The girls were also brought into the realization of the fact that they are not older than their mothers and their mothers possess a big bank of experience of which they can learn from in humility and that they are going to become mothers too someday.
We did not forget to let them understand that their academics is their number one priority.
We are saying a big thank you to the principal and other staff of Timi Agbale Grammar School.
Thanks to Dolapo | Olamide | Feyi | Toyosi | Fela who are the team working greatly to reach out to the girls at this crucial ‘moments to discuss’.
I learnt that I can actually be open to my Mum whenever I am confused.
Good behavior is an essential part of our life.
Obedience is key. I should be obedient to my Mum at all times, even when it seems tough to obey.
For me, I learnt how to communicate with my mother.
I learnt how to respect and speak to my mother and how to forgive her if she offends me
