I was born into an Anglican Family in my home country Nigeria. I was baptised and confirmed in the Church.
About three year ago I started having divine Encounters and God revealed alot to me. God showed me my purpose in Life, thought me about the Holy Trinity( A part of Christianity I never really understood), thought me about Theosis about the nature of the true Church and the importance of confession. (note that I had no knowledge of the nature of the Eastern Orthodox Church then.). I thought of converting to Roman Catholic because that was the only Church I saw that was close to what God revealed to me, but something held me back.
After having more divine encounters I thought to myself that i couldn't handle it, so I went into partial practice of paganism. After realising that. I couldn't run from what God wanted me to do for him, so I found my way back to Christianity.
July this year God pushed me to read about the Eastern Orthodox Church. To my surprise and puzzlement all God revealed to me about the true Church was what I was reading about the Eastern Orthodox Church more surprising was when I read about theosis and saw that God had revealed that to me too. I then started calling myself an Eastern Orthodox Christian.
Problems: The are no Orthodox Church in the State I preside in. There are only three Orthodox Churches in Nigeria and they are in the southern region of the country while I leave in the northern region. And now More than ever the Devil has taken a great interest in me, and has made my body feel dead. I often pray to be stronger than I'm. I fight everyday to remove what the Devil has put before my eyes, it a daily battle I often lose. I lose control of myself so much that I don't trust myself anymore. I wish I had a priest to talk to about it but I don't have. I long for the day I'll Step into an Orthodox Church for the first time. But now I'm in serious need of guidance and prayers.
