Bro John as we fondly call you, the news of your demise was such a huge shock to us, especially in Rhema kids team, you gave selflessly, always there to lead the prayers, to stir up the team members, you were so caring, I still hear your voice in my ears as we worked together on the Rivers Project. You gave your time, ideas without ever complaining. We miss you so much, but we're glad you're now with Jesus! Your legacy lives on and I know we will see you again in heaven. Enjoy your Father's rest Bro John...

We teach the children in school together. And the way you take the missionary story with children is so interesting and captivating that the children always were not happy when you stop to continue another time. The children and I will miss you but thank God you have gone to a better place.

My John, who is going to call me yummy mummy now? You came like a star, shone your way through this Earth and every relationship you formed. You left a halo behind, and that's the legacy of a heaven bound being. Someone described you as a mortal with a heaven bound mission.

You asked me two questions and I will answer them here.

1. Which values do you see in me? I just
  thought about this:

2. Have you observed any of my
  weaknesses?

My responses

Strengths: On a personal note. You are a very kind and personable gentleman.
You smile a lot which is a very good trait. Your moral values and personal self development speak volumes. You are a person of integrity and confident in yourself, plus let me not forget that you're also good looking with great potentials for leadership.

On a spiritual level. You follow Christ doggedly which is why you are a good example into others. I admire your prayerlife and knowledge of the word and your application of the WOG to your life and the lives of everyone around you.

Weakness. You need to be more outgoing and explore new fun fashion at the moment,you're too formal and need to relax some more. Go to the cinema and play more football.

John you replied

Yummy Mummy. am reading this on replay.


I desire to be so much more here (on the spiritual side). 

For me God is pleased with your work.

Thank you for being you. Farewell John the beloved.

  My darling Chan, knowing you was beautiful! You were my best friend. Your love for God was admirable and your love for me was rare and indeed priceless. You were my gift from God to help me through this life. You taught me the importance of knowing God and resting in his love. You paid attention to every little detail about me, accepted me for who I am, encouraged me even when I was down, cried with me when I cried, listened to me whenever I had a problem and always knew the right words to calm me down, taught me the dangers of procrastination (cause I always did), little did I know you said all that cause there was no time. Gifted me a lot of books!!! Even when you knew I didn’t like reading and encouraged me to keep reading; cause in your own words readers are leaders.
   Now when I go through our conversations, I just see you were leaving nuggets, steps on how to go on and live this life even in your absence. CHAN YOU WERE INDEED A GIFT!!! You were always ready to help me. Did everything you could to see me grow and you were always so proud of me even when I “failed”. You believed in me more than my own self even to the point that one day I’d speak Idoma. Lol.
  I’m grateful to God that I met you in this my life cause the difference is clear. I can never forget you and I promise to make you proud just as we agreed and keep reading all the books you gave me and more.
  My joy is you made Abba proud here and you’re with him in a place fit for an angel like you. Rest on my dearest friend. My Chan lives on!!!

Never thought I would have the courage to write this.... You death came as a huge blow to me. I have not met a more caring, determined, God loving person like you brother. I don’t even know the right words to use, always the first to reach out, visit, check up on us. It is three days after your burial and I can’t still get this out of my head. So, you won’t come visiting again? This has taught us a hard lesson. Thank you for all the encouragement, advise and kindness. You were one of a kind. Rest in Power Ocheikwu......

TRIBUTE IN HONOUR OF BROTHER JOHN OCHEIKWU AGBO - 16th March 2021
...And on this day we gathered...
As we gathered for a number of reasons; to pay tribute and respect to a Man of God. A mentor, spiritual pillar, a brother and a General in God's army; Late Mr. John Ocheikwu Agbo, we also gathered to show love to his immediate family and the people he left behind. Finally, we gathered to seek and receive comfort from the holy spirit.
I'll be less than honest if I say that our hearts have not ached over this situation. I am therefore not going to tell you not to cry, or not to experience emotions, for emotions are God-given and are part of who we are. I'll rather say it is okay to cry... Tears are the safety-valves that God built into us to help us at moments like these.
As we reflect on the life and moments of our brother, I'll like for us to note that there are 3 important moments in a man's life; The day we are born into this world, the period we have to live, and the day we'll leave. God has given us a control of this world, but for the first and the third, he decides for us all. As for Ocheiks, he took control of this period and lived a worthy life to be emulated. He fought a good fight of Faith and today, we can undoubtedly say; he has won his race. As a human, before he joined the spirits, he was not just an in-law to me. He was a brother, a business mentor and a lover of Christ. His smile was captivating. I never saw him angry... He touched every live that he came in contact with positively. His love for the things of God is immeasurable. He showed fatherly love, care and support for his immediate family which has spread out through his siblings. He was selfless and dedicated as he walked and worked with God. He was peace loving and a problem solver. I can go on and on talking about his examplery lifestyle, but permit me to stop here...
For us as a people, his race has ended rather earlier than we anticipated, but we still have ours to run and Brother John will not have it any other way than that we give our very best to God's kingdom.
Now that he is gone, we will miss him deeply. Our consolation is therefore in the fact that he is in a better place. Now he is made Immortal; nothing can harm his spirit and soul. He has gone to a place where there is neither pain no sorrow. A place where he doesn't need to sanitize or observe physical distancing.
In honour of our brother, I say;

Ring out the welcome

Swing wide the gates

Choirs of Angels stand and sing "Welcome home"

Ring out the welcome loud and clear- He is home at last!

It's hard to believe . What happened please. When did this happen.
Oh my God!
John Ocheikwu was my room mate in UAM and same department.
I have been trying to reach him for long.
I did Facebook search for all his name i know to no avail.
Today that I saw his picture under a long write up. I feel so happy to see him hoping to read about his greatness and achievements cos I know he is so versatile in ICT. I first knew about Cisco program from him in my 300 level. He thought Cisco while in school already early before many people know about Cisco.

Not knowing that this post is about his tribute . I
Feel sick to know about this.
Oh my goodness.
He was a source of inspiration for me while in school .

Please just know that u made maximum impact on earth
I truely missed u
This life?
U don't deserve this early passing on.
God gains heaven's gàin and Gloria
May God grant ur family the fortitude to bear this sad news

Sleep well brother
I am console by ur testimonials

Yours was a very short but immensely impactful life. Our few interactions always left me better. That smile and warmth drew everyone to you and always reminded me of your dad. The memory of the righteous is blessed indeed. Continue to rest in peace Ocheikwu

You will forever be remembered. I only met you briefly on Zoom on our La buena Vida business presentation and that moment will never be forgotten. I still can't believe you are no more. Rest on My wonderful Friend and Leader.
May your soul rest in perfect peace.

Ocheikwu, It's still so hard to believe you've gone ahead of us to the other side of eternity! All I have of you now are memories of the times we shared together!

I remember our usual greeting pattern, you would say "hello beautiful sister Comfort" and I would say "hi beautiful brother Ocheiks" and we would both burst out in laughter...deep hearty burst of laughter that still ring loud in my ears as I type.

The last time I saw you was at Rita's wedding in Makurdi (December) I asked if you came into town for the wedding you said no you've relocated back to Makurdi and I remember we were both happy at the prospect of having an opportunity to be in same town and you promised to pay us a visit soon. You asked to hold baby Joy so I can be free enough to keep things in order at the wedding reception and I obliged. I'm still remember how easily she warmed up to you immediately you stretched forth your hands to carry her and she stayed in your hands for a better part of the event.

The last time we spoke was 4wks ago when you called me as a follow-up to our discussion on La Buena Vida. We also talked about other things. I remember your excitement when I told you I enrolled for an online training on programming. You made me promised to come to you if I ever needed help with that. Little did I know that, it would be the last time I'll hear your voice over a phone conversation and that all our plans to have me design my own business website with your help and support would not be a reality after all. I finished the HTML level two class yesterday and our conversation flashed through my mind again. As we resume classes for CSS by 26th (Friday) I hereby make a solemn promise to give it my best shot all in honour of you because I know that's what you'll want me to do.

Thank you for the life you lived. You remain an EXAMPLE of the Christ-like life even to believers. Your love for Christ, humanity and Technology remain a loving memory to help us deal with your passing.

Keep resting at His bosom till we meet at the resurrection morning
Posted by Maryanne Madaki on March 21, 2021
The last 5 days has felt like a dream!!!! I am still in shock and every five minute I repeat that statement that shows you are no more with us. No matter how I repeat it so many times it still can not sink in. In the last 2 years we became close. My mum always said “ he is every inch a gentle man”. Indeed you were.you were calm at all times. Never assuming. Never angry. I never heard you raise your voice in anger. You were full of life. Filled with so many dreams that it crushes me to think you couldn’t make some a reality. Your love for family can never be quantified. Your love for God burned so bright that you evangelized by just being in a room. Your love for God forever changed my life and even in death it has and will continue to change lives many years to come. It reminds me of Philippians 1:20
“According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death."
Physically my whole being is in pain but I am comforted that you are basking in the presence of your maker. I can never under stand why he took you so early but I am comforted that you lived a life that honored him every moment.
Rest in piece my big brother. The last 2 years of knowing you closely brought so much light, peace and joy to my life. Thank you for always being there and constantly praying and reaching out to me. I can’t see you physically anymore but you are engraved in my heart and memories forever.
Enjoy and bask in the presence of God. I love you and miss you greatly ❤️

This is not just fair. I know they say God has. Plan but this one i don't understand .
Sleep well Ocheikwu. Sigh
Posted by Andrew Iyaji on March 20, 2021
One word that summarises your life is PURPOSEFUL.

Ocheikwu lived purposefully,

He lived gingerly in this world,

He lived like this world was not his home,

He was just passing through,

Leaving indelible impressions as he passed...

We've had beautiful moments, stimulating discussions,

At home in mummy's house in Makurdi,

Running a 2-man race staged and urged on by the children,

On money, digital skills, virtual work and more,

Advice hard to practice (his discipline, focus, work ethic and sense of responsibility was beyond me)...

We've shared the same room and bed,

His, in Abuja, on a couple or more occasions when I went there for courses,

Attending RCCG DYC Jabi,

Watching him invite a poor guy for meals (he did that habitually and for someone besides),

Jogging early in the morning together towards Jabi lake...

From his Kubwa residence, Abuja,

Attended a meeting at Rhema Bible Training Centre, Abuja,

Visited at his work place then in the Federal Secretariat, Abuja...

Were together in Oturkpo on a number of occasions,

Watched him red-eyed, tear-up, crying and wiping tears (very rare) in church during Uncle Boss' burial service,

Sat together in the wake (home and village),

Sat on the same motorcycle and taking measurements (data) for my wife...

As God 'warned' me about my father, PREPARE,

So He had apparently did early on, about my brother Ocheikwu,

I felt I was strong, having been forewarned,

Having like a 'man' fought and held back many times, the tears,

Seeing mummy, sisters, aunties, uncle, cousins break down in wailing and moaning,

So painful to watch, who had done everything humanly possible,

Not until the next morning,

In music and prayer,

A flood released,

From memories,

From pent-up emotions,

Comparable only to the pains and reaction to the news of my father's passing...

Questions? No we can't question You.

Memories, ARE THEY ENOUGH?

The tributes here, in church, at the interment ceremony,

From family, friends, brethren, acquaintances,

Give so great a comfort,

Everyone he came across seem to have an exclusively personal experience and touch,

That you wonder at such human (extra?) capacity...

Some may be saved as if escaping from flames (1 Cor 3:15, Jude 1:23),

Some would be welcomed like generals returning from battle, fought victoriously,

With standing ovations and streets lined up...

Besides being comforted at so full a life,

And so profound an earthly and divine influence and legacy,

Are lessons, lifelong, eternal for all humans alive,

Young and old alike,

As we all expect to go this same way,

The way of all the earth...

Ogbe! Ocheikwu is going ooo. These were the words of my Mum, crying profusely at the other end of the phone as we spoke in the morning of this fateful day.

Few hours later, I dreaded seeing her incoming call as I prayed for good news. It was a brief relief when she said things had stabilized for a bit as doctors were doing the best they could.

Just when I thought things would get better, I got the 3rd call from my mum and this time, she broke the news. I wasn’t sure how to react and just went cold.

I was broken and speechless when I spoke to your mum briefly and all she said was, ‘Ogbe your brother has gone’

The past few days have been very challenging. I keep recounting the memories from the first time we ever met, when my dad brought you to Lagos for holidays sometimes in the 90s to when we traveled to Makurdi for Holidays in 2000.

I have fond memories of sharing your room the few times I was in Makurdi and gisting about plans for the future etal.

I remember you asking me few months back what skills are required to set up an IT agency and before I knew it, you had the agency all set up. You had so many dreams and did the best you could to achieve them.

We sat beside each other all night at Uncle Boss’ wake keep. If only I knew that was the last we’ll ever have long conversations.

You loved God and passionately served Him and humanity. Always checking up on everyone and trying to unite us all.

You fought a good fight till the end and I have no doubt that you’re in a better place.

It was a pleasure sharing beautiful memories with you.

Till we meet again. Rest well my brother kum.

Ogbe

My brother kum...@Ocheikwu John Agbo this one hit me hard o....kaiii. we didn't deserve the love you shared. You were the glue that joined all of us cousins and family together. You knew the houses of every single one of us.made excuses for us not reaching out. You had a solution for everybody's issues.you loved carelessly (without protecting your heart). I have had people that knew you through me describe how wonderful you are and I have been amazed that you treated every one as though they were special....ocheikwu who would call me pharmo...my priceless sister...my swt@kum....my love. Who would call me every now and then...you were here late January....I should have hugged you tight and not release you....haaaaa my heart bleeds from regrets..the pharmacy i read that you were sooo proud of couldn't help you my brother.i could type a text book...

...you ran the race...you fought well...I didn't like the end☹️but I'm told God can make everything uncomfortable for his own to come home.i have learnt alot since your passing and hopefully you would be part of those preparing our mansion in heaven. Till we meet to part no more... Good night mummy would be fine...we would make sure of it

We didn't deserve you bro...

Oh I should have known....God doesn't keep the good ones for too long..

The world was choking you...God needed you home.
I will forever miss you
Posted by Anebi Agbo on March 19, 2021
It is pretty encouraging to see how many lives you touched in your relatively short run here on Earth.
You taught me many things, even how to run. You taught me to run on my tippy-toes while playing soccer - staying light on my feet and fast. Everyone would comment on how fast I am and I would think nothing of it. I think now and I remember you racing me and showing me how to run faster. You taught me too well and then I could run faster than you. Funny, the odd things we remember.

You inspired me with your love for computers and gadgets. I remember watching you late at night typing away - furiously punishing the keyboard as you coded in Basic, wrote scripts in the command line, or whatever else you were working on. I remember the bright yellow computer repair toolbox you had. You never got to see it, but I've got a miniature black version that I use quite a bit too. I remember all the Ubuntu CDs and the sweet smell of the soldering iron as you repaired circuits and motherboards.

All I wanted to do was to learn how to bypass the passwords you set so I could play more games on the computers. I remember the sweet feeling of euphoria when I learned to do just that and play games once you fell asleep or went out. Our Cat and mouse game was fun.

I remember the ridiculous stories you told me, Josh, and whoever else. Countless stories... The story of the prince who saved a princess by riding his horse up a vertical glass wall or the story of all kinds of 'Ekinibi' up to mischief... Mom would always exclaim, "Ehe, Ai kemgbe ibi." This of course did nothing to help as it made me laugh harder.

I remember playing 'Ebenyi Olofu ko Chompanu le'
That game was rigged. You seemed to know all the hiding places. I played anyway because it was fun to play with my big bro and our sisters.

The memories are sweet with some melancholy mixed in. It is hard to come to terms with the fact that you have indeed gone before us. This realization feels like gravity tugging at my chest, like a weight pulling at my heartstrings.

Just last month, you told me you were proud of me and I told you how grateful I was for all the things you had taught me. I wish I could have said a lot more about just how grateful I was and shown you too. As you lay sick, I was praying that you'd get better and we could make more concrete plans for better treatment and plans to apply your unique giftings for our joint venture, but that was not to be. I was looking forward to many more years of dreaming and doing. Many more years of working more closely with you as a brother and friend. You have given me so much and I did not even have the opportunity to give back a fraction of all you did for me.

The tidal wave of thoughts and emotions cascades over me, but I stand upon the premise that God is infinitely good and this keeps me afloat and from drowning. The day I heard you had passed on into eternity marked day 0 of a remarkably different life. The word purpose now has a different ring to it. Thank you for being the best brother you could be. Thank you for showing me how to dream and for being a loving brother.

You were pregnant with many dreams that will never see the light of day, but I bet it pales in comparison to the marvelous light of the Son.

I can't wait to see you in heaven and run with you again. I love you very much my dearest broski and I am proud of you too.

I never thought I will be writing this soon. You were full of life, ever cheerful and caring, you loved everyone that came your way. You were always keeping in touch. You impacted many lives during your short time on Earth, you loved God and the things of God. Our consolation is that you are in a better place free from pains and sorrow. Rest on Oinem you will forever be in my heart. I will miss you and all your messages in idoma.
Posted by Blessing Oko on March 18, 2021
You were so many things to me.You were my graphic teacher who taught me for free without holding back anything.
I was always sure of the coming of one person to church (ECWA 1) during youth fellowship and that was you.
You were consistent with whatever you put in your hands to do.
You pushed me so hard to believe in myself.
I appreciate God because He allowed me to be a part of your brief but impactful time on this part of eternity.

Rest on dear brother and friend. You are never forgotten.
Posted by Violet Ocheikwu on March 18, 2021
It is well. We cannot question God. But this is so unexpected. You were full of life, always had a smile on your face, you wanted to achieve so many things. Even though it ends here, it continues with your maker. Sorry for the pains. I remember your love and care for my children, creating fun memories for them. On their behalf i say Rest in peace.

Posted by Achetu Lagos on March 18, 2021
That's my bro!!
It's still very hard to refer to you in past tense. It's really hard. Reality is dawning quite slowly.
I keep saying to myself It Is Well!
Cheiks4, I won't see you on this side of eternity again, but we will meet at the Lord's feet. That is my biggest consolation - that you are there where we all are aspiring to be. Your race is over, God saw it and decided that you come home. So, what can we say?
It's no longer relevant that we had plans, dreams, aspirations... No longer relevant because nothing on earth compares to heaven.
I miss you so much already, I don't know when reality will finally fully set in, but I will keep remembering all the good you represented. I will remember how much of a rock you were. And I will go on to fulfill my own destiny so that I don't lose out and miss out on eternity with Jesus.
I love you Cheiks.
Rest well till we come home.

May your spirit soar in freedom
From the fears that gripped so tight.
May you find the peace you searched for
As you wandered, lost, in the night.

May your tortured mind be clear and calm
And your tender heart be warm.
May you have no need for strength now.
May there ne'er be another storm.

May the music of the angels
Be the sweet sounds that you hear.
As you're rocked in Heaven's cradle
May you ne'er shed another tear.

I'll wear your memory proudly,
My brother...my true friend.
May my love for you reach Heaven above
Until we meet again.

One thing that stands out is that he didn't waste his life. He was constantly on purpose, pushing others to do the same. I learnt leadership, consistency and drive from him. He made me love computers and business. He knows how to bring out something in you that you probably are never aware of. I love you so much dear brother. I look forward to sharing an endless time with you in heaven.

It is hard to accept this reality!
Posted by Diane Onyanehi on March 18, 2021
Like flower that blooms
It also withers
You withered to early
But who are we to question God
He knows why He did what He did
You are in a better place
I will forever remember you
You image is forever planted in my mind
Your laughter and care free attitude
Your words of wisdom
I know you are no longer in pain
You are surely in a better place
Rest on Cousin
Your are forever etched in my mind
Adieu

Writing is not my thing but if only I knew your call I missed two weeks ago will be the last I'd get from you, if only I knew our last conversion (with your strong strong idoma. Lol) would be the last I would have written a whole chapter telling the world how great a guy you were. The world will miss those great ideas we always share together. You shock me! But it's well, I'm consoled by the fact that you were a lover of God. Oinem, ojoche geh gweye k'miyor... Rest in peace bro.

Omoh..He always called me Josh kpishi..his laughter was the purest. Always kind and loving, when we where kids, at night when there was no light, he would tell us tales until light came on, he had a nack for computer and business. He was the purest soul, so full of love for others and just perfect in his council. Well, there's pain but there's also Joy. You lived a fulfilling life and to you is laid a crown of glory already. The lives you affected speaks for you already and it's such a Joy that you're at peace n probably making some angel laugh at our Nigerian jokes. Thank you for being a beacon of what we should strive to be..good people! Thank you for sharing your time with us.. for you, God has chosen that it's time for y'all to chill and so we have no qualms. Rest on. We'll see sometime. But till then.. you're forever in our hearts
Posted by Oine Iyaji-Agbo on March 18, 2021
I called him Broda. He was my brother by blood and action. My friend. I could tell him anything and he will listen quitely then speak. He was my sounding board. I would run business ideas by him. Wait for his input.
He didnt complain. He hardly talked about his own issues, i always had to push to get those out most times without success.
He loved the kids. Called Joshua Josh the posh cause Josh was a big baby.
Our last conversation, he asked why i had been so sickly recently and i said" they say na belle" snd my broda said " na only una?" We both bust into laughter. It carried on for sometime. Broda knew how to make you laugh even when you are in pain.
I watched him die gradually. I watched him shut down like the conputer he loved but i choose to remember not the pain he felt but the love he shared. The Father he represented.
He had a father. Jesus Christ.

Ocheikwu! Oinem! I am short of words. I don't believe in myths, but yesterday late afternoon, i suddenly started feeling very funny in my body, a kind of pain I couldn't explain from my head, to my stomach and then to my entire body. I had to stay still for about 25mins to get a relief. Imagine me in my normal element suddenly going mute and was in some kind of pain. I managed to tell the friend i was with at the time in whispers that i suddenly started feeling funny. Thank God i felt relieved and that has been the end of that very funny feeling till now. Not too long afterwards, Inalegwu Amedu called me and his first question was, have you heard from Ocheikwu Agbo of late? Immediately my heart skipped (something I usually don't experience). I asked him what the matter was. Instead, he simply said he heard something but was not sure, but I should call someone to get the truth. In confusion, I said I will call my Mom; but in the same breath, I told Inans I'll call Benji. I couldn't hold it together when Benji broke this news Inalegwu was refusing to believe.

Ocheikwu, I wonder how you were able to reach out to many people on a personal note and still was able to keep close touch with them. You'd call me to check on me and follow it up with chats; of which most times were in Idoma. You showed genuine concern. You are one friend it doesn't take long of conversing with you, I open up things I had bottled up. Many times you'd ask us to hold hands and you'd pray; not minding if we were standing by a maor road or not. There was no time we departed that I wouldn't have words of encouragement or words to ponder on.

When Oine married an Igede man, you'd tell me "Oleng, you're now my in-law. I have Igede blood in my family now." We both would smile and continue with our discussion... Many fond memories for me to start reeling out!

Crying wouldn't bring you back, but each time I remember you, I break down and cry. It hurts so bad that you had to go through all you went through, and not just that, you died at a young age!
I cry, not for you anymore cause you have gone to be with the Lord you creator and king whom you loved dearly so. I cry because of the deep hurt your demise has caused in my heart.

Alas you have overcome! Ocheikwu, you're an overcomer!
Thank you Oinem for all the good works you did! Ainya! I am grateful! You live on forever!

You loved God wholeheartedly and cared for people, serving without expecting anything in return. You saw the best in people and showed up for them without calling attention to yourself.

Thanks friend for living a life that points to what truly matters - fear God and do what he says. You have made an indelible mark in the sands of time and I can imagine the smile you are wearing with the crown given to the faithful!

ADIEU Ocheikwu John Agbo

This is so sad! You were one that put up a smile even in worst situations. So calm and cool headed.

You are in a better place now. Continue to rest in peace.

Hmmm. So much to say! Your Love for God, your humility, your contagious cheer, your selflessness... Some years ago, I was so troubled by the state of health of a close friend. You encouraged and prayed with me, though she passed on, the gesture remained pure and indeed so Valued.
When we drove together last year and got a chance to catch up a bit, we did nt know it would be the last time we would see on this side. Now with your Lord Jesus wearing that ever so bright smile of urs.
I believe Heaven would have received you with a standing Ovation for such a Pure soul u were. Goodnight brother

It is always painful to lose a loved one, especially when they are young.
As humans, right now, we don't even have the yardstick for measuring what it means to die old or young anymore these days. I have come to understand that our destiny path are cut differently. While one may live for a hundred years to fulfill destiny, another might live for a fewer years and would have accomplished very much.

Oche, you fall into the latter category. You may not have lived for so long, but your impact lives after you.

We choose not to mourn like the world, knowing that you are in a better place.

You have gallantly passed on the baton. The race is now ours to run and finish strongly whenever the Master calls.

Keep resting in the bossom of your Maker my brother and classmate, till we meet on the resurrection morning.

You will be forever missed.

I may not have had a one on one relationship with you but you were my school mate and felt so hurt by your demise. You were sure a good man though left quite too soon, God knows best. Rest in peace Ochiekwu.

Although you are no more here with us but the memories we created together will stand the test of time...

You had so much to offer the world but then we know for sure you are in a better place.

Dear Ambassador John,
Thank you for being here!!!

"Billionaire John!" as I casually called you.
You left a legacy that'll always be in my heart. Working with you in partnership with the La Buena Vida Project gave me hope when things seemed hopeless. You'll forever be missed Billionaire John. Your legacy lives on and I'm very glad you're in the happiest place unimaginable.

This is unbelievable. I had only known you on zoom and online business sessions until I met you in January when you came for the Labuena vida retreat and you were such a pleasant young man. It is unimaginable that you are gone. May the Lord comfort your family through the shock of this loss. Adieu bro.

Bro John as we fondly call you, the news of your demise was such a huge shock to us, especially in Rhema kids team, you gave selflessly, always there to lead the prayers, to stir up the team members, you were so caring, I still hear your voice in my ears as we worked together on the Rivers Project. You gave your time, ideas without ever complaining. We miss you so much, but we're glad you're now with Jesus! Your legacy lives on and I know we will see you again in heaven. Enjoy your Father's rest Bro John...

We teach the children in school together. And the way you take the missionary story with children is so interesting and captivating that the children always were not happy when you stop to continue another time. The children and I will miss you but thank God you have gone to a better place.

My John, who is going to call me yummy mummy now? You came like a star, shone your way through this Earth and every relationship you formed. You left a halo behind, and that's the legacy of a heaven bound being. Someone described you as a mortal with a heaven bound mission.

You asked me two questions and I will answer them here.

1. Which values do you see in me? I just
  thought about this:

2. Have you observed any of my
  weaknesses?

My responses

Strengths: On a personal note. You are a very kind and personable gentleman.
You smile a lot which is a very good trait. Your moral values and personal self development speak volumes. You are a person of integrity and confident in yourself, plus let me not forget that you're also good looking with great potentials for leadership.

On a spiritual level. You follow Christ doggedly which is why you are a good example into others. I admire your prayerlife and knowledge of the word and your application of the WOG to your life and the lives of everyone around you.

Weakness. You need to be more outgoing and explore new fun fashion at the moment,you're too formal and need to relax some more. Go to the cinema and play more football.

John you replied

Yummy Mummy. am reading this on replay.


I desire to be so much more here (on the spiritual side). 

For me God is pleased with your work.

Thank you for being you. Farewell John the beloved.
