Event, Media Release

 An interdenominational ministry, the Rose of Sharon Glorious Ministry International, is set to hold the maiden edition of its ‘Fruit of the Womb’ anointing service.

The event, tagged, ‘The Conceiver’ will hold on Sunday, September 25, 2022, at 2.30 pm at the Agip Recital Hall, Muson Centre, Lagos.

The Convener, Apostle Folorunso Alakija, Servant-Leader of the ministry disclosed that the programme was God’s call for RoSGMI to begin a special fruit of the womb anointing service for women who are expectant.

The theme for this edition, ‘Remember me, O Lord!’ is under the auspices of the popular University of Marriage platform, organised by the RoSGMI, to help couples learn about God’s true purpose for their marriage and families.

Alakija urged all expectant mothers to come believing that God will meet them at the point of their needs, just as He did in I Samuel 1:27 when He answered the prayers of Hannah, and she gave birth to a baby boy.

Expressing her faith that the spirit of God will manifest and perform wonders during the service, she said, “I urge all waiting and expectant women to take advantage of what God is about to do in their lives. I encourage them to prepare in prayer and fasting for the service and to be joyful because their time to become fruitful has come.”

Speaking further, Apostle Alakija also invited women who had received their miracles to come and share their stories to increase the faith of their sisters who are still waiting on the Lord.

To contribute in any way to the celebration of Apostle Folorunso Alakija, a powerful and much-beloved woman of God who is turning seventy years young, is an honor.

Her enduring impact in helping and empowering people, especially women, throughout Nigeria and worldwide, demonstrates how awesome and wonderful our God is.

Her influence has indeed been extraordinary. 

Like Jabez, Apostle Alakija prayed a heartfelt prayer years ago asking God to bless her and committing to serve Him all the days of her life. In Blossoming with the Hand that Gives the Rose, her second autobiography, we see that God not only granted her request but continues to increase her more and more. And, without question, the Apostle continues to keep her word to the Father.

This memoir includes her ministry, business, and personal achievements over the last ten years, along with excerpts from her first autobiography, Growing with the Hand that Gives the Rose, written when she turned sixty. With openness and humility, she shares her experiences with becoming a Public Speaker, Author, Business Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, and Chancellor of Osun State University in 2016.

I welcome you to our Annual University of Marriage Conference in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our theme for this month is “Fruitfulness”.

In Deuteronomy 7, Moses addressed the children of Israel regarding the commandments and statutes that God had given to them. He encouraged them to adhere to all that God had instructed. He went on to pronounce that as long as they obeyed all of God’s decrees, they would enjoy the blessings that He had made available for them. One of such blessings is fruitfulness.

Deuteronomy 7:14 says, “You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock”.

In the New Testament, the moment we accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ over our lives and become born-again believers, we are already blessed by God. However, it is our responsibility to enforce all that God has provided for us in Christ. We must, therefore, keep declaring the blessings of God over our lives and that of our loved ones to experience its physical manifestation.

The second thing we should expect as Christians are to be fruitful in our bodies and all our endeavors.

According to Webster’s Dictionary, barrenness means:

· To be sterile (incapable of producing fruit) Without vegetation Unproductive
This informed the decision of our topic for this month, FRUITFULNESS, being the opposite of infertility/barrenness.

A fruitful person is:
· Growing · Increasing · Flourishing · Abounding · And reproducing

This is not referring to a physical state alone. It also includes spiritual, mental, financial, and emotional states.
Are you experiencing any form of barrenness in your life? Do not entertain it any further.

The truth is that the price for your fruitfulness has been paid in full by the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, choose to agree with God’s word and declare that you are fruitful and productive in Jesus Christ. The result may not come immediately, but I encourage you to maintain your confessions with thanksgiving. In the end, death will give way to life and barrenness to fruitfulness.

I decree and declare that very soon your fruitfulness will appear for men to see and they will come and rejoice with you in Jesus’ name.

As usual, our newsletter is full of testimonies, prayers, memory verses, and confessions for your reading and use. Download newsletter here.

Kindly be reminded that our 5th Annual National Crusade is scheduled from Thursday 25th to Saturday 27th November 2021.

Pray, prepare, and plan to attend and invite others as well.

Yours in His Service,
Servant-Leader Apostle Folorunso Alakija

Media Release
Africa, September 1, 2021/ Nigerian businesswoman, philanthropist, and founder of Flourish Africa, Apostle Folorunso Alakija, has announced the launch of a N1 billion fund to promote female-owned businesses in Africa.

Flourish Africa is a female empowerment platform designed to help women achieve their full potential. It is a place for both female millenials and adults to access information and the right networks that will enable them to grow in their chosen careers and businesses while prioritizing health and wellness.

According to the statement announcing the fund, Apostle Alakija disclosed that the initiative would focus on supporting the entrepreneurial activities of at least 2500 female-owned businesses through funding and structured training over a period of 5 years. In her announcement, she said “I’m happy to launch the Flourish Africa 1 billion Naira fund on my 70th birthday as a gift to hardworking and enterprising women. This initiative will focus on empowering women economically and socially for the benefit of their immediate families and the society.”

She further explained that a minimum of 500 female micro-entrepreneurs would be trained annually. After the training, 100 audacious entrepreneurs from the pool will be able to access grants to the tune of N2 million each for their businesses from an annual fund of 200 million Naira. While expressing her enthusiasm about the initiative, she explained that she looks forward to empowering one woman at a time as she strongly believes that women are a crucial part of Africa’s development.

She restated her commitment to empowering as many women as possible in Africa as one of the things she would want to be remembered for. She added that the main objective of Flourish Africa is to create an enabling platform that provides skill development, mentoring, access to marketplace for female entrepreneurs.

This concept of empowerment stems from Apostle Alakija’s assertion that women have the potential to flourish, if a community of like-minded individuals who share a common goal and purpose pool together and make an impact in every community they find themselves in.
