October 11, 2019Share to friends
Good day sir; please we will like to know you.
My name is Onyekachi Asuzu, a veterinary doctor currently working in the department of Medicine, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
Did You ever serve in Feca Nsukka?
Yes, I did. I was active in service from 2004 to 2008. I was Feca Nsukka Bible Study Coordinator from 2004 to 2006 and I served in the capacity of the General Secretary from 2006 to 2008.
Can you briefly tell us what Feca meant to you back then?
Feca was more than a fellowship to me then. It was made up of strangers that became family to me. We shared most things together. Feca was above other Christian groups to me because beyond sharing the scriptures, it helped share my burdens and raised me in a new form of Christian life.
What were the major challenges that you faced as a Fecaite?
If I recall well, we had lots of challenges back then. For instance how to balance my academics with my executive assignments, management of time, resources, and friends to create a balanced life. Through my walk in Feca, I learnt how to be organized, prioritize events and know how to achieve more goals as I have been endowed with potentials. We were also confronted with fraternity groups who desired to have deals to do with our members if I recall well.
What were the most important things that you learnt from Feca?
Feca taught me to have a personal relationship with God, and understand the person of Christ as a friend and a companion. My prayers then were not a show off, but an intimate discussion with the divine. I understood my place in Christ and know how to show fruits that are worthy of my calling. Feca taught me to love my brethren like I love myself; made me to know I could share all I have and still lack nothing. I had more trust in our members than I had with my earthly family members. This trust and unity kept me from compromising in many regards. I do pray such still exists with this generation of Fecaites.
Do you have any advice for the current Fecaites?
To the younger ones, I will remind you of the foundation of Feca. It was on love for each other and love for God. Qualities of love can be seen in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-9. When we love each other, we show the world the real stuff we are made of. Learn to check on each other, lift weary hands and raise feeble knees. Feca is not a fellowship of mere tongue speaking, our power stems from a heart of love one to another which is based entirely on a heart of love to God. May this vision never cease to burn in the hearts of you all as long as you live.
