Esther Ajayi divine calling to start a ministry was an interesting one. In an exclusive interview with Kemi Ashifon, she said ” I’ve always had dreams of having a bell and a big Bible in my hands. I dreamt of sending people out of church that has gone fetish and cleansing dirty altars.” “My journey to ministry kick-started in 1997, when as a businesswoman, the then, National Electric Power Authority, NEPA owed me N4.2m. I was in Abuja and was bent on retrieving my money because I was owing a bank and was servicing heavily. One day, I boarded a taxi and as my usual practice, I would always pray for every hour. The taxi driver, who I called Baba Ogbomoso (he’s late now) saw me praying in the taxi at 3 pm and I asked if he would join me. We prayed together after which he asked if all was well. I told him about NEPA owing me. He quickly asked me if I would meet a woman of God to pray for me. Desperate for help, I agreed to see the prophetess. That was how I met Rev Esther Oguntoyinbo. Immediately after I got there, she knelt down and asked me to pray for her. I was confused and wondered what she was saying because I had come to her to pray for me. She persisted and I just said a short prayer. Then, she said God wants me to carry His cross and that God would prove this with the payment from NEPA, which she said, would be paid within 7 days. That way, I would know that God wants me to carry His cross. Before I left her place, again, she asked me to pray for her.”On my way back, I wasn’t pleased with what the prophetess said because I needed my money to be paid and not carry any cross. But on the fifth day, I went to methodist gospel.”
“That was how I started preaching and I would preach on my streets, everywhere and even when we came to London. I would ring the bell and preach the gospel on the streets of London, saying, ‘repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Initially, people looked at me but they got used to it and said hello.”
