As part of the Nation-building initiatives of Church Arise! LivingWater Ministries, to continue “occupying” while awaiting the imminent return of King Jesus, the LivingScience Foundation was registered in 2016. The two-fold mandates of this faith-based NGO were to promote the truth of scientific creationism against the lie called evolution theory; and consequent to that, enhance public health via proper appreciation and management of the beautiful and dynamic environment God has blessed Man with. The activities of the LivingScience Foundation include public education and enlightenment (from high schools to Universities and the general public), sponsoring scientific research on relevant local issues, and promoting communication between key stakeholders in environment-health through the National Conference on Environment and Health (NCEH) series.
3RD NCEH: The third edition of that Conference held successfully at the Redeemer’s University, Ede, on May 16 and 17. Apart from the usual scientific presentations, there was an educative Quiz competition for students from 9 top secondary schools (public and private, from Osun and Oyo states), an undergraduate Essay competition, and a special award to a distinguished personality who was adjudged to have made the most significant contribution to environment-health in Nigeria in the previous year. This award, named after the environment-health Icon, Prof A.F. Oluwole, was awarded to the distinguished Prof M.K.C. Sridhar of the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan. Ibadan. The Honourable Minister for Health, Prof Isaac Adewole sent in an inspiring goodwill message through the Commissioner for Health in Osun State, Dr Rafiu Isamotu. Other dignitaries present included Prof Debo Adeyewa, Vice Chancellor, Redeemer’s University and Chairman of Association of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities.

CETCON 2018: A week after the 3rd National Conference on Environment and Health, on Thursday May 24, the LORD enabled us again to host the 1st Campus End-time Conference (CETCon) at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. The specific purpose of the Conference was to key-in into the several prophecies through several servants of God over the decades that Nigeria will yet be a praise on earth at the end-times. In the manner of Daniel (in Daniel 9:2-3), we reasoned that considering the lateness of the hour and the imminent return of our King, if these prophecies were ever to be fulfilled, the time is now. Since most of the prophecies, for instance through Pa Sydney G. Elton, specifically mentioned students of Institutions of higher learning as critical players in the coming revival to situate Nigeria into her destiny of leading the black race into global end-time relevance and righteousness, we decided to stir up things up a bit on the Campuses in this respect, hence the CETCON.
Four main speakers addressed 4 key subthemes. Prof Joshua Ojo of the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics at the Obafemi Awolowo University presented scientific and sociological facts showing the utter bankruptcy of the Evolution theory and the extensive havocs it is subtly wrecking in society. Pastor Samson Braimah of the Crusaders Against Campus Cultism And Violence Foundation, Lagos spoke extensively of his sad forage into the world of drugs and campus cultism before being marvellously saved by the grace of God; and urged that the audience (parents and youths) to learn on his dime. Mrs Adun Akinyemiju of the Christians in Higher Education (CHESS) was represented by his able assistant, Pastor Segun Oludipe who used the stories of Nehemiah and Esther to encourage members in the elite University community to get involved in nation-building. The high-point of the Conference was the message by Pastor Bosun Emmanuel, secretary to the Nigerian Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) and National Coordinator of the Social Christian Movement of Nigeria. The enraptured audience unanimously urged him to speak for an additional hour, as he expounded on the nature of the Kingdom of God, and how it could become established in Nigeria with the active involvement of Campus Christians.
The CETCON was chaired by the distinguished retired Professor of Physics and Chapel Coordinator at the Bowen University, Iwo, Professor Theophilus Aro. Also leading a strong contingent from the Redeemer’s University, Ede were Drs Fadiran and Adedeji. We wish to single out the Redeemed Christian Fellowship and the Christ Life Fellowship on the OAU Campus for very strong logistic support for the Conference. Prof J.F.K. Akinbami of the Centre for Energy Research and Development of the OAU was the able chairperson of the self-sacrificing Local Organizing Committee. It is hoped that, while the Lord tarries, the Conference will be an annual event.
