IGNITE 2012

Organizing an event is one thing. Praying for the event to be a success is another thing. IGNITE 2012 ROCKED!!!!! And we, Nu Nations, give God ALL the glory!

IGNITE is a Singles Dinner which plans to hold every year. It is organized by Nu Nations, a Christian Youth Group which is under the umbrella of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). IGNITE aims at bringing singles under one roof where they could 'mingle' and 'jingle' with one another and if God has it...even meet their future spouse there *wink*

The first edition of IGNITE, themed "Make That Move Right Now", held on Saturday 18th February, 2012 at Lagoon Resturuant. At about 7pm, guests were already seated...though more were still on their way. The event commenced with an opening prayer, then the MC of the day, Emeka Smith and the Nu Nation's Programme Coordinator, Dami Aloba, broke the ice by mingling people with those they do not know. Games such as 'HITCH', derived from the movie titled HITCH starring Will Smith & Eva Mendes, where the opposite sexes, both single females and singles males, who do not know each other would ask one another questions about themselves in about 5 minutes, then move to the next person to do the same. The other game was "Angel's Questions", where guests answered questions concerning relationships and marriage. A bowl with plenty "single-like questions" was passed randomly for guest to pick and answer. Guest who did'nt pick were allowed to answer questions too. The dancing competition was one of the 'heights' of the event. Two couples,that is two men and two women, who didn't know themselves won N10,000 (Ten Thousand Naira) each.

The most anticipated event of the day was the raffle draw. Winners left with a microwave courtesy Nu Nations, a dinner for two courtesy Delta Kitchen, FREE wedding gown courtesy Nwando's Signature, FREE wedding cake courtesy Unique Patolitos and a Honeymoon package to Dubai courtesy Nu Nations. All the winners were thrilled!!! Congratulations to the lucky winners!

The day concluded with one of the Nu Nations' Executive, who gave a brief summary of what Nu Nations was all about and the plans it has for 2012. The event ended with a closing prayer. Then guest left the venue dancing away and with a give-away pack courstey Honeywell.

I have to give it to the Courage Band! They thrilled the guest with sensational songs which set the perfect mood for the event. More grease to their elbow! *thumbs up*

Next year IGNITE would definitely ROCK more than this years in Jesus name....AMENNN!!!
