The 'Appointment with Destiny' conference is a prayer summit organized annually by Awesome Treasures Foundation, a faith-based NGO which was founded by one of Nigeria's most prominent architects, Mrs. Adejumoke Adenowo. This year's edition held on Sunday, 22nd January 2017 at Shell Hall, MUSON centre, Onikan Lagos.
The event started at exactly 3pm with an opening prayer and then an awesome praise-worship session led by the super gifted Gaise and his band.
This was followed by a video documentary of the activities and achievements of the Awesome Treasures Foundation in 2016. Mrs. Ikeolu Biobaku, CEO of Mix and Bakes confectionaries, who is also a member of the Foundation gave a testimony about her journey with Awesome Treasures Foundation over the last 14 years, as well as her experience under the mentorship of 'Sis J'(Jumoke Adenowo) as she is fondly called.
After her presentation, the Awesome Treasures Foundation Business Incubation Forum was introduced as a platform to train and empower women in leadership, management and executive development, to give them an edge in their marketplace endeavors.
Mrs Jumoke Adenowo was then called up to the podium; she acknowledged all board members of the foundation, as well as partners and all those who had contributed to the progress of the vision.
She expressed her gratitude and presented gifts to some deserving young women who had been supporting the ministry in prayers as well as to the winner of her #successchallenge on Instagram.
Mrs Jumoke Adenowo's message, 'Unlocking My Wealth in 2017 (Genesis 1:26-28)' was empowering in every sense, as she pointed out the need to exercise dominion throughout the year 2017, because the purpose of God concerning that hasn’t changed (Genesis 1:28), she also spoke about the importance of constantly being in covenant with God through obedience to instruction which always involves sacrificing something important.
She said that for a righteous man to dominate, he must employ a different technology from what is obtainable in the marketplace which involves acting on the Word of God and Prayer. She expounded on the fact that Noah entered the mystery of the altar by taking out of his meager resources to sacrifice to God, and as such the curse upon the earth was revoked for his sake. (Genesis 8:22). Following this, there was an intense prayer session, backed with prophetic declarations and blessings upon the house.
The event was very well attended and prominent personalities such as Tara Fela-Durotoye, Osayi Alile, Funto Ibuoye, Ufoma McDermott and several others were present. It ended at about 6:30pm and was definitely a rewarding experience for all.
