Development of Bethel Sozo Network Nigeria
Bethel Sozo is a unique inner healing ministry that brings freedom from pain and hurts of the past and draws us into a closer relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As a healing and deliverance ministry, it teaches us tools to use for ourselves in our daily walk with God, and highlights the importance of forgiveness as a powerful key for moving fully into our God-given identity and destiny.
In 2013, The Lord interrupted a dinner Mina had invited Sola Momoh to, and insisted she tell Sola about Bethel Sozo. He then told her to anoint Sola, saying she would help her with taking Sozo to Nigeria. At this stage, Dr Bajomo did not know Bethel Sozo was going to Nigeria. Sola received this well, the Holy Spirit came to confirm and amidst tears, they committed to partnering with Papa and praying this in.
A month later, the Lord connected Trisha Walker to Mina on the internet. Trisha’s husband, Thomas, had been given a job in Lagos and she needed some information on life in Lagos. Trisha also had a love for Sozo and three families met and prayed about Sozo being birthed in Nigeria. Fast forward 18 months later, The Lord brought the directors of Bethel Sozo based in South Africa, Carina and Deon Boshoff, and the led the first Bethel Basic Sozo training conference in Lagos, Nigeria, 19-21 June 2015. There Mina was made the Bethel Sozo Coordinator.
In August 2016 at a Leaders Conference, in South Africa which Femi and Mina attended, Dr. Mina Bajomo was made Sub-Facilitator for Nigeria, to enable Bethel Sozo to grow and flourish in the country. On their return, the team continued to build on what they had learned by watching the Bethel Sozo DVD’s, and receiving mentoring form Dr Bajomo, and sitting in as 2nd Chairs during personal Sozos.
In November 2016 Dr. Bajomo went through to Port Harcourt to introduce Bethel Sozo there and as a result Pastor Linda Tokuta called together a team to trained up through teaching by watching the training DVD’s and also weekly mentoring via zoom.us by Mrs. Trisha Riley from HTSC church in London. The Port Harcourt team have faithfully met each week since February, spending four hours together on a Wednesday morning to watch DVD’s and mentoring.
Mentoring sessions take place in Lagos and DVD training is run regularly to expand the team. Dr. Bajomo, with the assistance of Mrs. Riley, together with Ms. Bessie Nchenge and Ms. Carine Nwanege, both trainers form Bethel
Atlantic School of Supernatural Ministry in Cameroon, were able to host a number of Sozo appointments at the education hub, city hall, Lagos, during the Bethel Sozo awareness week. Also in November 2016, Dr. Bajomo took the Sozo tools to use at the YWAM camp. So many came into freedom and connection to Papa.
In March 2017, Lapis Lazuli hosted the Kingdom Revival Conference in Lagos, and once again we were able to offer Bethel Sozo appointments to people whose names had been on the waiting list. Dr. Sherri Lewis and Ms. Bessie Nchenge flew in from Bethel Atlantic School of Supernatural ministry, assisted by Mrs. Trish Riley who came in for the conference from London. Twenty-four appointments were held.
