It was very late at night one day in 1977 in a tiny room in Nigeria’s commercial city of Lagos when God anointed the Founder and General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya.

It was then and there that God gave him the vision of the church while asleep in a one-bed room apartment in Lagos, he told the congregation while remembering the 30 years since he shot to fame in the crowded arena of Nigerian preachers and healers that also includes big names such as Prophet T.B. Joshua, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Reverend Chris Oyakhilome, as well as Bishop David Oyedepo and Chris Okotie.

The cleric made the revelation on Saturday during the 30th year anniversary and international convention of MFM holding at its Prayer City, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, according to a statement his spokesman Collins Edomaruse, sent to TODAY NEWS AFRICA USA in Washington D.C.

“I was sleeping in my one-room apartment in the Boys Quarters of a house located on Herbert Macaulay Way, Yaba, in 1977, when I heard a sharp voice,” Olukoya told the congregation during a sermon he titled “Rearranged for Revival”, which is also the theme of the convention.

“I then woke up and walked towards the door. But I did not see anybody. Again, for the second time, the voice came and as I was whose it was, the Holy Spirit said: ‘son remember the call of Samuel’. Then He started giving the covenant that led to the establishment of the MFM.”

He said though he got the messages and the covenant from God, the MFM was not founded until 12 years later.

‎The convention, which opened for real spiritual activities, attracted hundreds of thousands of worshippers to the venue while millions of others are following the activities through the various alternative channels of the church.

‎Saturday’s activities include three Manna Water prayer sessions, 30 prayer sessions and 30 deliverance sessions.

The convention kicked off on Friday evening‎.

Worshippers, in their thousands from all over the world, who had arrived early for the convention were treated to a highly-anointed and spiritually-packed concert on Friday evening as a prelude to today’s service.

Unveiling the programme of the event last Sunday at the international headquarters, Lagos, General Overseer of MFM, Dr. Daniel Olukoya, said the Saturday programme will be laced with three Holy Ghost-packed Manna Water Services.

He encouraged worshippers to come to the meeting with their bottles of water as they connect to the awesome power of the Holy Ghost.

The Manna Water service is one the church’s inter-denominational services that attracts millions of worshippers all over the world.

Worshippers, during several of their testimonies on the Manna Water service, say longtime yokes, intractable ailments and foundational curses, among others, are broken during the services.

Olukoya, speaking on the programme, also said the special convention will come to a close on Sunday with a thanksgiving service at the same venue.
