Nnedi's Stories


Shared by Ngozi Emenogu on December 30, 2019
It was a rude shock to hear of the home-going of Mrs Nnedi Odedo, the beloved wife of the National President of Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International- Nigeria, but I thank God that it is well with her soul.
She was a virtuous woman who touched and influenced many lives for the Lord Jesus Christ. She will be greatly missed in the Fellowship and all other places where she impacted people's lives, especially by her husband, Arc Ifeanyi Odedo.
Our joy & consolation is that she died in the Lord, therefore she's blessed and her good deeds are following her.
The Lord shall console our NP, Arc. Ifeanyi Odedo, their children and the FGBMFI- Nigeria, as He grants our departed sister eternal rest.

It was shocking news, a dark and heartbroken news? We're short of words and weak to question God as how and why? As believers we are always reminded of this transition to always be prepare.
May the peace of God which transcends all understanding guide the family's heart and mind in christ Jesus. 
We will forever missed Mummy's ever smilling face, the radiance of God's glory that surround her presence wherever she was. We can only be comforted because we know where she is.
The psalmist says. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints" ps 116:15 Remember this song writter; "When peace like a river attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll; whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, "It is well, it is well with my soul."
Mummy Mrs Odedo has fought the good fight, she has finished her race and has kept her faith. We shall all see her someday and celebrate at the feet of Jesus.
It's well with the family. Peace

Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His saints. Psalms 116:15.

The Righteous is delivered from the evil to come... 

We are not pained because the Kingdom has gained. 
We missed you sorely but surely we will meet to part no more. 
We shall meet on that beautiful celestial shore.

You have  immortalized yourself by your impacts in us. Your legacies will forever live on. 

Rest on ma! 


Our Own Aunty Nnedi

It's a pity you left so soon! i had some  childhood experience with Nnedi Ododo. The first period i met her was around the 80s and i was still in primary school when she came to live with her uncle Joe Ike (blessed memory) in Enugu. She was one of those people children couldn't forget easily. I read someone here describe her as 'shy' but i think now its something that runs in her family and i call it 'fearless humility'. My siblings and I fondly remember her beautiful face and smile. Always smiling. No wonder the Lord used her ambience and humility to draw many women close to Himself. You fought the fight and now you've gone to be with the Lord. 
I pray that the Lord will console Arc Ifeanyi Odedo your husband and also those beautiful lovely children you both brought forth. I also extend my condolence to Eloka (Fct), Mrs Ike (UK), and all the members of Odedo family.

Rest on Mama

Our flag in the Full Gospel is flown half mast, every full gospel member has tears in his eyes. We are shocked and disturbed, it's a difficult time for most of us, we are troubled. But am convinced that God understands, He will console us. Especially our President and his children. MAMA our sister, our friend, a humble daughter of Zion always showing forth the glory of our God. You have gone ahead of us, we will meet again. But for now FARE THEE WELL. I am particularly pained for your soon departure, but i can't ask GOD why. For the Full Gospel family, if you wish to cry, cry. If you must fast, fast. If you have to shout, shout. If you want to have intimate discussion with God on this matter do. OZOEMENA. Take heart. dr Chris ENYI.

It is well....I know you are with the angels...

Mrs Nnedi was a woman whose life modelled that of a true christian woman. So gentle ,meek and calm .The news of your demise shocked me...but God knows best... I glorify God for the life you lived...Allowing yourself to be used of God for the betterment of others. As I with your loved ones friends and well wishers bid you farewell,I pray for God's comfort on  those you have left behind. You left a dignified mark in the Full gospel fellowship of Nigeria especially the Ladies of the fellowship. Always teaching about prayers ,submission, love , respect and family. I will always remember all you taught us about marriage in my future family....I love you Ma!But God loves you more ,you were an angel on earth,now join the hosts of heaven and other angels in singing the unending Alleluia!!!
Adieu Ma....
Till we meet to part no more....

Nnedi and I

Shared by Eunice Neme Agu on December 19, 2019
Nnedi and I met and started our sisterhood and friendship as young undergraduates enjoying fellowship and serving God together as members of the Student Christian Movement (SCM) of the University of Nigeria, Enugu campus in 1981. I left school for NYSC in 1984 and we met again in the fellowship and service of God as young graduates in the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International (FGBMFI) Nnewi chapter in 1986 (she had just returned home from NYSC while I had started work with a firm in Nnewi). It was a great time we had being part of the fellowship and contributing our quota to the kingdom work in that area under our then chapter President Dr. Ifediora. There were strict rules and regulations like young ladies like us were not allowed to sit on the first two rows but we didn't mind, we had the kingdom in mind and obedience and service truly paid. 
We both got married in 1988; Myself in April and herself in December to two friends who had also caught the vision of the FGBMFI  so we all continued in the fellowship and service of God in the FGBMFI, growing through the ranks from Chapters to Zones to Districts and presently at the National Executive Council level of the fellowship.
'Nneora' as some of us fondly called her was a woman of prayer who had her eyes fixed on the heavenly goal.
Several years, ago she was taken to heaven during childbirth/surgery but was made to return to earth a few hours later since her assignment on this side had not been completed. This time, she has gone to be with her Lord and Master who she loved so much. I can imagine her joy at beholding her throne which was uncompleted during her first visit now a complete majestic piece of heavenly artistry. 
We will greatly miss her as a friend, sister, counselor, confidant, prayer partner, co-labourer etc etc.
Thank you Lord for the comfort of the Holy Spirit which we are assured will envelope our brother Arc. Ifeanyi Odedo, the children, all the family and friends especially the FGBMFI Family.
We do not mourn like those who have no hope for we know that our sister Nnedi has taken the first flight Paul spoke about in 1 Thes 4:13-18. Nnedi and Co. will rise first and those who are alive shall surely be caught up together with them to to meet the Lord in the air and so we will always be with the Lord. Oh what  great rejoicing it will be.
When we all get to heaven
What a day of rejoicing that will be
When we all see Jesus 
We'll sing and shout the victory✌

I first met late Mrs Nnedi Ifeanyi in 1987 around August/September, when as Chapter Supervisor (that was the designation then for what came to be called Fiteld Representative) - over Kwara State, part of Sokoto State and the Federal Capital Territory, I travelled to Abuja from Ilorín and encountered Arc. Ifeanyi Odedo at a Breakfast meeting in Agura Hotel. (The Fellowship had only one Field Representative then, resident in Jos: Mr. Pat Odiyi.)  I had asked late Mr. Olusegun Bamgbola to introduce me to someone in Suleja with whom I could work so we could launch a chapter there. It was Arc. Ifeanyi he handed me over to. On my return from Abuja after that first encounter, I travelled with Arc. Ifeanyi and spent a night with them in Suleja where they lived then, before proceeding to Ilorín. Nnedi, though very shy, yet deeply respectful, displayed such hospitable on that first meeting, you would think she had always known me. I must have stayed with the Odedos some four/five times before Suleja Chapter was launched in 1989. Throughout all those visits/stop-overs, Nnedi always gave me fatherly hospitality. I had the opportunity of a close chat with her after her testimony at our Enugu NEC meeting in 2018, and we thanked God over what God had done. I least realized then that that would be my last opportunity of sharing a chat with her. 
Thank God, she knew her Lord and Saviour closely. Her homecall has created a vacuum; and as someone who had lived as a widower close to a quarter of a century, I know it is only God can uphold and strengthen Ifeanyi on this journey. The great thing is, He knows best how to and is always there. Glory to God!
