Introduction Of Ruth & Boaz Ministry Of The Fountain of Life Church | @RnBministry

The Ruth and Boaz Fellowship is an interdenominational ministry outreach of The Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju, Lagos, Nigeria. It is open to people from different churches both far and near.

This ministry was conceived in 2008 when it became apparent to the Senior Pastor, Taiwo Odukoya that an ever increasing percentage of matured/older singles, single parents, separated/divorced, and widows/widowers exist in the church and the society at large.
To this end, the ministry aims at providing support to both genders, meeting their specific needs (spiritual, emotional and physical where necessary) The Ruth and Boaz Fellowship also provides a secure and conducive environment for all members where their views can be freely expressed and problems shared, thus giving them a clearer vision of the beauty in their challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead of them and most importantly, one more reason to keep moving on.

The ministry is also geared towards changing the general mindset of the society towards this group of people and provides a support network to enable members cope better with daily challenges as it affects their varied/multi faceted needs.

This is often achieved through quarterly meetings where everyone come together to enjoy a bonding experience. The first meeting for this year comes up on the 21st of this month (March) at the Fountain of Life Church, Industrial Estate, Ilupeju Lagos.

Pastor Hires Prostitutes to Give Them Second Chance at Life

A pastor serving in the African country of Burundi recently shared a blog disclosing that he had hired two prostitutes for the night. Simon Guillebaud, founder of ministry Great Lakes Outreach, wrote that he hired two young women, Divine and Arlette, aged 21 and 22. 
 
The pastor arranged to meet the women at a restaurant, with the intention of changing their lives. 
 
“Their mechanical smiles broke my heart,” Guillebaud wrote in his blog. “I sat down and introduced myself. I told them how I wanted them to have the night off. They could order whatever they wanted, enjoy a hot shower, and then have a night of deep rest. The only rule was not to solicit any of the hotel guests. I would be back in the morning to pay them, and after breakfast together, they could go.” 
 
The next morning, Guillebaud met with Divine and Arlette again; after a night of freedom they seemed more trusting. 
 
“I said I thought that as little girls they didn’t dream that one day they’d grow up to be prostitutes. Sometimes terrible things happen in life, and you’re forced into difficult choices. But maybe things could change – if they wanted to,” Guillebaud wrote.
 
The pastor learned that they fell into prostitution as a means to support themselves and their families. They were both orphans and used the sex trade to pay bills and for their education. 

 
“I asked them what their dreams were. They said they wanted to run a small business, or maybe go into marketing…I imagined out loud how, if they made good choices from now on, that in ten years – who knows – they could be running a healthy business at the market, happily married with a few kids. Divine’s eyes lit up at the thought. Dared she believe…?”
 
The pastor planned to meet with the young women again to arrange counseling and get them connected at church. 

At the next meeting, “They had a skip in their stride…” Guillebaud wrote. “We talked more, and agreed that they should finish this academic year before starting a business. We made a budget to establish what they needed to keep out of trouble. Divine burst out: ‘No way Simon, there’s no going back, now I have hope!’” 
 
Guillebaud says he hopes to reach more women in the sex trade; his experience was not merely a “stunt.” 
 
“I have dreams of them becoming the inspiration for others if we did this in the coming years on a more consistent basis – the pioneers with a story to show other girls that it is possible to start afresh, that they are not forgotten, unloved, or abandoned.” 

Former SEALs Chaplain Could be Kicked Out of Navy for Christian Beliefs

A former U.S. Navy SEALs chaplain could be kicked out of the military after he was accused of not showing “tolerance and respect” in private counseling sessions.
 
According to Fox News, Lt. Commander Wes Modder has also been accused to not being able to “function in the diverse and pluralistic environment” of the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.
 
“On multiple occasions he discriminated against students who were of different faiths and backgrounds,” the Chaplain’s commanding officer Capt. Jon R. Fahs wrote in a memorandum.
 
Modder has been in the military for nearly 20 years. Before becoming a Navy chaplain, Modder served in the Marine Corps. In his last review with Fahs, the commanding officer said Modder was “the best of the best.”
 
On Dec. 6, an assistant in Modder’s office submitted a five-page complaint against Modder, complaining of Modder’s views of “same-sex relationships/marriages and homosexuality.”
 
The assistant is gay and married to another man.
 
Modder was then removed from his station.
 
“It was insulting and it was devastating,” Modder said. “I felt discriminated against. How could something like this happen at this stage of my career?”

Michael Berry, an attorney with Liberty Institute who is representing Modder, said that threatening to throw Modder out of the military is unjust.
 
“They want chaplains to be glorified summer camp counselors and not speak truth and love into people’s lives,” Berry told me. “There are some anti-religious elements in our military. Anytime somebody wants to live their faith out – there are people who say that is offensive.”

Joe Biden Blasphemes Name of Christ while Defending Homosexuality

Vice President Joe Biden reportedly blasphemed the name of Christ last Friday (March 6) when he was defending homosexuality. Christian News Network reports the Vice President was speaking at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual spring conference when he used the Lord’s name in vain while disagreeing with comments Dr. Ben Carson made last week. 
 
As previously reported, Carson stated his belief that homosexuality was a choice in a recent CNN interview. He used prison as an example to demonstrate his point saying,  “A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight—and when they come out, they’re gay. So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”
 
He later apologized for his comments, explaining that he does not believe in gay marriage for religious reasons but supports states’ rights to legal same-sex marriage if the state wants to do so. 
 
“I support civil unions for gay couples, and I have done so for many years. I support the right of individual states to sanction gay marriage, and I support the right of individual states to deny gay marriage in their respective jurisdictions,” Carson wrote on his Facebook page. 
Biden argued that Carson’s comments were bigotry, and blasphemed the name of God in the process. 
 
“Every ridiculous assertion from Dr. Carson on—I mean, ridiculous. I mean, Jesus, God,” he said. “Oh God. I mean, it’s kind of hard to fathom, isn’t it?”

The Vice President continued, “We’re never going to be able to eliminate the bigots. They’re a small percentage of the population. They’ll continue to be vocal,” Biden said. “But make one thing absolutely clear, folks, they are an incredibly smaller and smaller minority. This country is changing.”

Before I Get Naked – Rodney Terry

It amazes me how men and women take their precious time finding the right person to style their hair, where they buy their homes, or what jobs they take, but choose anybody to occupy their hearts.

The reality is you have to guard your heart as you do your social security number, and that is with CAREFUL protection! We all probably know at least one person who has planned their entire life with someone who they’ve only met for five minutes. They have unloaded their entire life on someone who they haven’t known for a solid twenty-four hours. In essence, they have become completely naked with a stranger.

When I say NAKED, I use the term in context of transparency. There is an episode on a TV comedy from the 90’s called the Fresh Prince of Bellaire. An actress by the name of Tisha Campbell was a guest star playing Kathleen that Will Smith dated. They were stuck in the basement because of an earthquake until help arrived. As they waited, Kathleen took her weave out, pulled her press-on nails off, and removed her colored contact lenses.

Will Smith had the hardest time accepting that the superficially attractive woman he had met originally did not seem to be the lady in the basement he was stuck with. While this episode still makes me laugh today, the sad truth is that we have become experts at making ourselves up to appeal “perfect” in hopes to possibly catch a perfect mate. The problem is, you will soon find out that the mate you portrayed to be perfect for is just as imperfect as you are!

So, do you spill your guts out up front or shut down like a city power outage during the dating and courting stages of a relationship? Neither are healthy choices, but the best responses are GRACE and HONESTY.

While dating, grace says, “You are not perfect, but I’m willing to watch and help you grow!” Honesty says, “I am graceful because I know that I’m not perfect either, and I could use some help!”

One of the scariest things you will do while building a relationship is to be completely open and honest with each other. It is a vulnerable space for most. They will see you during your ups or downs, highs and lows, losses and victories.
In the book of Judges, chapter sixteen, I took notes from Samson who laid his strength in the lap of the wrong woman. Samson fell in love with a woman by the name of Delilah who conspired against him by discovering his weakness and giving him over to his enemies.

So before you get “naked” with another person, be certain it is with someone who is committed to building a future and protecting it with you. When the time comes where you meet your potential spouse, you should be sure that you are ready to take on the “Naked” beauty of discovering them.
