One night, in 1993 in a vision, the servant of God, Edward Ikeomu, saw himself entering a single storey building, not yet completed. As he was entering, a voice said to him, "This is the person". He looked and saw a table covered with a dazzling white piece of cloth and across from edge to edge with a yellow piece of cloth. Behind the table was an old man with a white beard standing, full of glory. In the room were two young men who were kneeling down, facing the wall and backing the old man with their hands stretched out backwards. That same voice commanded him to go and kneel with them and he obeyed. The young man kneeling at his right side asked the old man behind the table if he was the God of Abraham, to which the old man replied "Yes". Afterwards, He turned and said to Edward, "I will use you as I used my servant Joshua".

In 1995, while he and a friend were contemplating deeply about their Bible College Practical Training, his mouth mysteriously, as if someone was speaking through him uttered, "My son, I am going to Cameroon with you".

That same year, he left for Cameroon for his Bible School Practical Training in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

However, on the 18th June 1999, after much praying and deep thoughts, God clearly impressed on his heart that He was going to send him to seven nations for the preaching of the gospel.

On Thursday, 22nd July 1999, this encounter was divinely confirmed with Deuteronomy 7:1 which says, "when the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites and the Girgasshites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou". It was like scales falling from his eyes. Prior to the above scriptural revelation, Edward thought Joshua just conquered 31 kings. He hadn’t come across the above scripture and did not have the understanding that it was actually seven nations that Joshua took the people of Israel into. (Joshua 3:10). This confirmed the word of the Lord to His servant.

Then, on Friday, 5th March 2004, Edward left with his family for Cameroon. Moreover, on Sunday, 20th November 2005, Marvellous Light Assembly, the church arm of Word of Eternity Ministries International was founded in Bamenda, N.W.R. Cameroon with the concerted efforts of 13 pioneer members.

On Sunday 22nd of May 2011, Edward took a leap of faith and another church was established in Bram Fischerville, Soweto, South Africa. Recently, the Lord opened a door for the ministry in Landhi (Khanewal), Punjab, Pakistan.

We believe that the Lord will lead us to the remaining nations and beyond as He opens the doors for us.
