Baptist Student Fellowship Graduates 125 FFBS Students

Sunday was a joyous moment at Baptist Student Fellowship a.k.a The Jesus People as the Foundation and Follow-up Bible School (FFBS) unit graduated 125 students. This is coming after months of intensive training of the students in the Word of God.

The graduands who were dressed colourfully in Black and Purple uniforms looked radiant as many well wishers and friends travel from far and near to felicitate with them. The sermon of the day saw the graduands and the whole congregation admonished and charged by the Guest Minister, Rev.(Mrs) Femi Okunola on the topic "Unveiled Transformed Agents of Transformation". She emphasized the need for them to be the agents of transformation in our present day Nigeria.
The ceremony never ended without the high pitch moment when outstanding students in various categories were awarded. Adekanmbi Blessing whose name was the song of the day emerged the overall Best Graduating Student. She received numerous prizes for best performances in various categories. Our correspondent's effort to reach Blessing after the event proved abortive but our chat with her teacher, Sister Ruth Brooks who coincidentally during her own time as an FFBS student graduated as the overall Best Graduating Student revealed that Blessing was deservedly awarded. In her response, she gave all glory back to God as her own impact was to teach and motivate her.

The Principal of the FFBS, Brother Ezekiel Olaniran in his own reaction appreciated God over the success of the programme which was meant to be the last major event of the current tenure. He gave an insight into what the FFBS is all about. In his words, "Foundation and Follow-Up Bible School BSF for this session involved both theoretical and practical aspect. The practical aspect involved Prayer Sessions, Morning Cries, Hospital and Prison Visitations among others.
